T1duS's blog

By T1duS, history, 5 weeks ago, In English

Inspired by similar blogs in the past (1, 2, 3 ) and the fact that I've probably reached near the peak rating I could on this website, I decided to do this.

    Not much actually. Most purples would probably know a lot more theory than me. I am a believer of this blog by um_nik (https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/92248). So, for instance, in the list of topics in that blog, I only know mergesort tree and li-chao tree.

    I think my main motivation was probably just to satisfy my ego, to see how good I can get. It's similar to how most guys start gyming in the beginning just for the chicks but later they just want to lift more and become stronger.

    It varies from time to time. During my JEE days, I used to sleep for less than 4 hours a day. These days, I am sleeping for like 10 hours a day since the semester just started. Going further into the semester, I'd probably sleep for like 7-8 hours a day.

    I started when I was 12. Currently, I don't practice anymore but when I used to, I think I used websites like codechef and hackerrank a lot in the beginning. Then, later shifted to more CF, CSAcademy, Atcoder etc. Over the last few years of my practicing, I used mainly OI specific judges like oj.uz to prepare for IOI.

In your "prime", how many hours of practice did you do per day? Do you think reaching Candidate Master in 1 year is a reasonable goal for a beginner? Thanks in advance.

    In my 'prime' (which I would say would be the months leading up to IOI), it's tough to quantify the number of hours. I would just think about problems all the time.

    Yeah, it is a reasonable goal to become CM in 1 year. Took me 1.5 years personally (I started CF couple of months after starting CP), but many of my friends who are more smarter or hard working than me have made it within an year.

      Generally, I have realized I losses my rating to a fixed point after taking break for some days from practice but don't increase as expected while doing hard work.

      See my rating graph and say how you will practice if you were in my place.

(1) What do you think would be a good start to proving stuff about some problem's solution? like some idea which could possibly lead you further to the solution if it was true. Maybe provide some resource if possible? Most editorials simply leave out by saying the observation/idea is obvious and some of them rarely prove it.

(2) Do you prove all of your solutions while giving the contest?

    I don't think proving solutions in contests is a good idea. I personally never do it. Although, you should try to prove it after the contest. If you can't, it's still not that big of a deal.

What does this line mean: "There is an answer in which segments of length 2 does not intersect with segments of length 1" in editorial of 1718A2 (editorial link: https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/106049 )

    They may not be useful specifically for CP, but sure they can be helpful for other things like interview prep.

Can you tell me solution for this Problem?

There are N items of weights 1,2...,N means ith item has a weight i. And Each item has a value v[i]. There is a knapsack of weight N. We have to fill that knapsack with these weights with maximum value achievable.

We can take each item as many times as we want(including zero).

0<=v[i]<=1e9 1<=N<=1e5

Are you mathematically talented? Do you need to excel at math olympiads to think about red colors? It definitely helps, but is it necessary?

    You don't need to excel at math Olympiads, but they are certainly very helpful. I definitely would recommend high school students interested in CP to try that out as well.

    Good question. I am unable to decide this yet. I definitely do want to go towards a more Research related job or anything else which involves a lot of thinking. My opinions on this keep changing. For example, one of the factors is that academia would probably involve some teaching aspect. Last semester I TA-ed a course online so I didn't particularly like doing this. This semester, I am TA-ing a course face-to-face so I definitely enjoy it much more and the chances of me going into academia have increased slightly. Similarly, I also did a Research internship this summer and liked the overall vibe of Industrial Research so that inclines me towards Industry also.

Hey T1duS and all other viewers, lately these days I have been trying to develop a dark theme for CodeForces from scratch. Below I m sharing links to sub-components that I have touched upon so far:
- Basic Theme: link1 (dark violet and yellow)

Is there a reason why you stopped practicing or you just don't feel like doing it anymore.
