By MagicSpark, history, 2 months ago, , When I am solving 1197D,I didn't see m<=10 and then I find a solution that can solve m<=n<=3e5

Here is my solution:

The range [l,r] is equal to [l,l+m-1],[l+m,l+2m-1]....[l+xm,r]

then we will enumeration the value of l+xm.

We consider every reminder(from 0 to m-1) of position module m and solve them independently.

When we are solving each of the reminders,we have v[i]-->the value of the ith range(from the ith position fits the reminder to the next),then we will consider the value of two parts

First:[l,l+m-1],[l+m,l+2m-1].....[l+(x-1)m,l+xm-1]

Second:[l+xm,r]

We can use segment tree to get the max prefix sum of [l+mx,l+(m+1)x-1],then it's the second part.

When we are solveing the first part,we need to find the min value of the prefix sum of v[i].

This can also be done using segment tree.

Then the answer for each l+xm is First+Second-k.

Here is my submission https://codeforces.com/contest/1197/submission/57841454

The final answer is the maximum of them.

Overall complexy O(n log n) with big constants

I wanna know if there are better solutions.

If you have,please share under this blog.

By MagicSpark, history, 6 months ago, , I tried to solve 1153F. I got up with an unusual idea.Then this is my code.I clone the 1153F to a mashup.And I accepted with maximum time 1825 ms.But the time limit is only 1 second. Can some one help me to optimize the code? (Because it is not so slow,I think I don't need to change the algorithm,And I only get this way to solve the problem) [submission:53500731] in the mashup and 53500951 in the contest.
