 » 8 months ago, # |   +194 Maybe you need to improve your English.
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +6 Russian statement and editorial is full of typos and silly mistakes as well, so I think author should either buy a new keyboard or learn to type... (Or maybe stop using google translate)
 » 8 months ago, # |   0 We need codes also!
 » 8 months ago, # |   0 In problem F you may observe that one of primitive roots in nimber field of size $2^{2^k}$ is $2^{2^k}-1$ so you may precalculate some of its powers beforehand to further simplify BSGS-algorithm and take discrete logarithm with base being a primitive root. If you do so, you won't need to develop tricky multiplication algorithm as $64^2$ algo with precalc for powers of two would be enough.
 » 8 months ago, # |   0 Can you give a better explanation for the optimization of problem (A. Recommendations)? I got to the O(n^2) solution during the contest but couldn't improve it.

 » 8 months ago, # |   0 Can you please explain more on how to improve the complexity of A.Recommendations from N^2 to Nlogn.
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   0 I have used heap and greedy approach 71716787First i have put all unique elements in a dictionary with list of values.Then i keep a temp list to store all the list and pop one largest element to keep in that position and others increase one position and carry on doing this till temp is empty , time complexity — O(N) + N*O(log(N))
•  » » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   0 Same solution using a priority queue 71924309 in C++
 » 8 months ago, # |   0 in the explain 1315c i can't find this logical " If there is no such x (if all numbers greater than a1 are already used), there is no appropriate permutation " so that can't be possible because there is many numbrs can always make this proposition wrong , what ever we have in the b1 b2 b3 b4 .... bn and olso why they put -1 on this test cases can you help me please to undersatnd more the problem test 1: 3 2 4 3 test 2 : 3 2 4 5 test 3 : 3 2 4 6 thanks :)
 » 7 months ago, # |   0 Does anyone understand the use of multiset in 1310 A Recommendations? I coded my own solution before reading the editorial and it was accepted (using set), but it used a different method, I think. I don't understand the editorial explanation for how to use multiset. Thank you.
 » 7 months ago, # |   0 Can someone tell me why my solution for Div1A/Div2D will TLE? I think its time complexity is nlogn.
 » 7 months ago, # |   0 Can anyone please explain more about the problem 1310B. thanks in advance.
•  » » 6 months ago, # ^ |   0 Try the problem from end of the string, like greedy approach with prefix sum, if sum gets larger than p, break.
 » 5 months ago, # |   0 solved D in 12 hours...It was hard for me...But enjoyed at the end...
