Hey, Codeforces!

Pinely is here! Just like every year, we are sponsoring the PTZ competitive programming camp. As a part of this, we have prepared a contest for the participants and invite everyone to join it on Codeforces.

Pinely Round 2 (Div. 1 + Div. 2) is scheduled to start on Aug/30/2023 17:35 (Moscow time).

During this round, you will have the opportunity to solve 9 problems within a time frame of 3 hours. The round will be rated for everyone.

The problems have been authored and prepared by the Pinely team: AndreySergunin, ch_egor, Endagorion, amethyst0, zeliboba, zemen along with our special friend Golovanov399.

We would like to express our special thanks to:

We sincerely hope that you enjoy our contest. Wishing you good luck and lots of fun!

P.S. If you are interested in working at Pinely, please visit our website: https://pinely.com/, send us an email at [email protected] or fill in the form here

Hi Codeforces!

It would be very helpful if you can post insights/hints for the problems of this contest on https://starlightps.org. This (Starlight Problem Solving) is a website where people can share and discover key insights/hints for problems (with the help of AI) AND find similar problems (with the help of AI) based on insights they struggled with on one problem. We hope this will help many problem solvers and need data in order for that into happen. (Just keep in mind that you agree to publish the insights under CC by 4.0 license.)

By the way, we are also planning a gift card giveway to people posting insights to a certain number of problems, so stay tuned for that!

      use DP: [l,r] is possible iff [l,r'] is possible and XOR[l,r]>=XOR[r+1,r'].

      The constraint equals to XOR[l,r]&Highbit(XOR[l,r'])>0, the following part is trivial.

          We don't need to store all n^2 states.

          Basically we just care about Highbit(XOR[l,r']) for all possible $$$r'$$$, so we just store the OR sum of them for each $$$l$$$.

          So the memory complexity is $$$O(n)$$$.

I completely don't understand why my solution for problem E is wrong. Simply put, I first do a dp calculate the time , then increase the minimum event by k, one by one. But this approach resulted in a WA,I find this outrageous.

    I think you should only increase events that do not depend on any other events by k, one by one, in order of increasing h.

    There is a case when increasing minimum event by k does not affect its maximum dp (so that final dp value doesn't depend on current minimum)

First time solved G (by guessing) in div1+2 round, and first time got top50 in div1+2 round. I can't wait to see 100+ delta (no FST please).

A: We can record "there are how many online events in total" and "there are how many subcribers are online at most at the same time" during the process, and the first number is the maximum number of subscribers have seen the post, the second number is the minimum.

B: Let q be the inverse function of p, and count there are how many i such that q[i]>q[i+1], we can get the answer. In fact, when we choose x for operation, we let q[x-1]<q[x], and the relations of q[i-1] and q[i] for all i!=x are remained the same. So each operation will decrease #(i: q[i]>q[i+1]) by at most 1.

C: There are n distinct integers in [0, n] (n+1 integers), so there will be exactly one missing number in [0, n]. Let a[0] be this missing number, then each operation will swap a[0] and a[i] for 1<=i<=n, and this will make a[0, n] be cyclic right-shifted (a'[i]=a[i-1] for i>0, a'[0]=a[n]).

D: If there are any row or column with odd cells with domino, there's no solution. Otherwise, we can construct a solution like this: First consider vertical dominos. Because the 1st row contains even cells with domino, and each horizontal (LR) domino has 2 cells in one row, the first row must contain even U-cells (the 1st row can't contain D-cells), and we can color half of them black and half white. Then we colored the 1st row with equal black and white cells, and the D-cells in the 2nd row will also be colored equally (which means 2nd row contains even D-cells). Then because 2nd row must contain even L-cells and R-cells, the 2nd row must contain even U-cells, and we can color them equally again. By induction, we can color all vertical dominos and fill rows equally (Note that vertical dominos will always fill columns equally). Similarly, we can also color horizontal dominos equally.

E: We sort all "start quests" (quests without dependencies) by h[i] and assume we start game by the first start quest (with minimal h[i]). Let dp[i] = the earliest day we can complete quest i (the days are 0-indexed), then the time we complete i-th quest is k*dp[i]+h[i], and the dp formula is dp[j]=max(dp[j], dp[i]+(h[i]>h[j])) for dependency i-->j. Then we need to try to change the quest we start the game. For each start quest, we need to change start time to h[i+1] and change dp[i] from 0 to 1. Of course when we increase dp[i] we need to update dp[j] for all i-->j, but during the whole process, each dp[j] will be increased at most once. So we can update dp[j] by dfs.

F: We solve the problem by check every ranges [i, j] if [i, j] can be remained (we call such ranges valid). First [1, n] is valid. For range [i, j] to be valid, we need a valid range [i, k] where xor_sum[i, j]>=xor_sum[j+1, k], or valid range [k, j] where xor_sum[i, j]>=xor_sum[k, i-1]. If we let high_bit(n) be the highest significant bit of n (example: high_bit(21) = high_bit(0b10101)=0b10000=16), then a >= b is equivalent to (a^b)==0 or (a&high_bit(a^b))>0. The first condition means a==b, and the second means "on the highest bit where a and b differ, a is 1 and b is 0". So [i, j] can be obtained from [i, k] means: there's valid range [i, k] such that xor_sum[i, k]==0, or xor_sum[i, j]&high_bit(xor_sum[i, k])>0. So if we let R_flag[i] = (if there's any valid range [i, k] such that xor_sum[i, k]==0), R_mask[i]=(the bitwise or of highbit(xor_sum[i, k]) such that [i, k] is valid), we can check if [i, j] can be obtained from [i, k] in O(1), and we can check if [i, j] can be obtained from [k, j] by L_flag[j] and L_mask[j] similarly. Thus we can solve the problem in O(n^2).

G: I guessed the answer but don't know how to prove it: build a directed graph with edge i-->a[i], for each connected component, the answer is (prod(deg[u])-sum(deg[u]-1))(prod(deg[v])), where u are nodes on the cycle, v are other nodes.

    Sketch of proof for G:

    • A move consists in replacing edges $$$a \rightarrow b$$$ and $$$b \rightarrow c$$$ with $$$a \rightarrow c$$$ and $$$b \rightarrow b$$$.
    • Any node with a self loop becomes inactive for the rest of the process.
    • If the cycle has length $$$1$$$, the formula is valid. For example, you can show that you can always reorder the operations "from the leaves to the root", then it's enough to choose for each node if it's a $$$b$$$ in some operation and with which $$$a$$$. Note that the number of candidate $$$a$$$ (i.e., the indegree) is constant.
    • If you choose $$$a$$$ outside the cycle and $$$b$$$ in the cycle, you get a new cycle of length $$$1$$$ and you can use the formula.
    • If you choose $$$a$$$, $$$b$$$ outside the cycle, you don't affect the cycle.
    • The formula is not valid as it is if you choose both $$$a$$$, $$$b$$$ in the cycle, because of an edge case: if in some moment the cycle has length $$$2$$$ and you choose its nodes as $$$a$$$, $$$b$$$, $$$c$$$, you automatically make $$$2$$$ self loops instead of $$$1$$$.
    • Therefore, you have to exclude all configurations where you make all the self loops in the cycle except one using an $$$a$$$ in the cycle.

There's an $$$O(n\log^2 v)$$$ solution (could be optimized further to $$$O(n\log v)$$$, but I didn't implement it during the contest) for problem F. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that $$$O(n^2)$$$ was enough to pass and wasted too much time on the Polylog solution, which needed much care when implementing :(

Is this approach incorrect for E? I do this, and in my brain it feels this should give the correct answer 100%. But I don't get AC.

First, I find the minimum completion day for each node, assuming the roots start at day 1.

Then, I traverse in reverse topological order and try to maximize the completion day of each node, while making sure it doesn't affect it's dependencies.

Now, for each connected component, we have some start point S and endpoint E. We can sort all these by increasing order of start hour, iterate over start hours, and find the answer if we choose to start at this hour on day 0. I print the minimum of these answers.

    I did almost the same thing and didn't get AC either. I also looked at 2 corner cases — if endpoint for each connected component is maximum the next day (so all nodes without any edges might not be in this interval) and if endpoint is the same day as startpoint. I think that in general this aproach is corrent or maybe there are some other corner cases

    dfs for it and keep track for every row and column number of black and white so that when you start a new dfs it would balance this column or row and just keep fliping the color as you dfs from each cell. a check must be made that all rows and columns contain even numbers of half dominos otherwise no solution exist.

Consider the following test for E:

1
3 2 12
7 8 0
2 1
1 3

(3 tasks to do at hours 7, 8 and 0; task 1 depends on 2, task 3 depends on 1)

My solution says the optimal order is to first do task 2 (since you literally can't do any other tasks at first) — that will happen at hour 8 of day 1 — then do task 1 (again, you can't do any other task) at hour 7 of day 2 — then finally do task 3 at hour 0 of day 3. Time between first two tasks is 11, and time between second two tasks is 5, for a total of 16.

However, tourist's solution gives the answer 11. What am I missing?

    this may sound very cliche, but the truth is... we've all been there before, and without struggling we'll never grow

    considering this was only your second contest ever, i suggest waiting for div3 or div4 rounds. ABC will be much easier!!!

    the struggle is real but it means that you're improving yourself and pushing beyond your limits so never back down never give up :) !!!

Thank you for the contest, I really like the problems!

Problem A: Had wrong solution and it took lots of time for fixing.

Problem B: My observation skill got boosted thanks to this.

Problem C: Recognized the pattern but not enough time for the implementation, solved after the contest just now.

I am happy because I can still manage to solve till the end even after getting lots of Wrong Answer verdict for problem A. Looking forward to enjoying more problems from you guys! Cheers!

IS there a way to see a test? For example can you send it to me if I ask nicely?

    How do you debug for a large testcase, lets say 1000 size input array.
