Comparing Permutations of Subarrays Problem

Revision en1, by vamaddur, 2017-07-05 10:55:21

We are given an array of size N and Q queries (1 <= N, Q <= 100000). Each query has 4 parameters: index i, index j, length L, and differences D (0 <= D <= 1). We must answer "YES" if a permutation of the subarray from arr[i] to arr[i+L-1] differs from a permutation of the subarray from arr[j] to arr[j+L-1] in at most D places, and "NO" otherwise.

This sounds like an offline segment tree problem, but I am not sure how to start implementing it.

Can someone give me some hints to get me started and moving in the right direction?

Please help, and thanks in advance!
