To solve the problem one could just store two arrays *hused*[*j*] and *vused*[*j*] sized *n* and filled with false initially. Then process intersections one by one from 1 to *n*, and if for *i*-th intersections both *hused*[*h*_{i}] and *vused*[*v*_{i}] are false, add *i* to answer and set both *hused*[*h*_{i}] and *vused*[*v*_{i}] with true meaning that *h*_{i}-th horizontal and *v*_{i}-th vertical roads are now asphalted, and skip asphalting the intersection roads otherwise.

Such solution has *O*(*n*^{2}) complexity.

It is always optimal to pass all the computers in the row, starting from 1-st to *n*-th, then from *n*-th to first, then again from first to *n*-th, etc. and collecting the information parts as possible, while not all of them are collected.

Such way gives robot maximal use of every direction change. *O*(*n*^{2}) solution using this approach must have been passed system tests.

Let the answer be *a*_{1} ≤ *a*_{2} ≤ ... ≤ *a*_{n}. We will use the fact that *gcd*(*a*_{i}, *a*_{j}) ≤ *a*_{min(i, j)}.

It is true that *gcd*(*a*_{n}, *a*_{n}) = *a*_{n} ≥ *a*_{i} ≥ *gcd*(*a*_{i}, *a*_{j}) for every 1 ≤ *i*, *j* ≤ *n*. That means that *a*_{n} is equal to maximum element in the table. Let set *a*_{n} to maximal element in the table and delete it from table elements set. We've deleted *gcd*(*a*_{n}, *a*_{n}), so the set now contains all *gcd*(*a*_{i}, *a*_{j}), for every 1 ≤ *i*, *j* ≤ *n* and 1 ≤ *min*(*i*, *j*) ≤ *n* - 1.

By the last two inequalities *gcd*(*a*_{i}, *a*_{j}) ≤ *a*_{min(i, j)} ≤ *a*_{n - 1} = *gcd*(*a*_{n - 1}, *a*_{n - 1}). As soon as set contains *gcd*(*a*_{n - 1}, *a*_{n - 1}), the maximum element in current element set is equal to *a*_{n - 1}. As far as we already know *a*_{n}, let's delete the *gcd*(*a*_{n - 1}, *a*_{n - 1}), *gcd*(*a*_{n - 1}, *a*_{n}), *gcd*(*a*_{n}, *a*_{n - 1}) from the element set. Now set contains all the *gcd*(*a*_{i}, *a*_{j}), for every 1 ≤ *i*, *j* ≤ *n* and 1 ≤ *min*(*i*, *j*) ≤ *n* - 2.

We're repeating that operation for every *k* from *n* - 2 to 1, setting *a*_{k} to maximum element in the set and deleting the *gcd*(*a*_{k}, *a*_{k}), *gcd*(*a*_{i}, *a*_{k}), *gcd*(*a*_{k}, *a*_{i}) for every *k* < *i* ≤ *n* from the set.

One could prove correctness of this algorithm by mathematical induction. For performing deleting and getting maximum element operations one could use multiset or map structure, so solution has complexity .

One could calculate matrix sized *n* × *n* *mt*[*i*][*j*] — the length of the longest non-decreasing subsequence in array *a*_{1}, *a*_{2}, ..., *a*_{n}, starting at element, greater-or-equal to *a*_{i} and ending strictly in *a*_{j} element with *j*-th index.

One could prove that if we have two matrices sized *n* × *n* *A*[*i*][*j*] (the answer for *a*_{1}, *a*_{2}, ..., *a*_{pn} starting at element, greater-or-equal to *a*_{i} and ending strictly in *a*_{j} element with *j*-th index inside last block (*a*_{(p - 1)n + 1}, ..., *a*_{pn}) and *B*[*i*][*j*] (the answer for *a*_{1}, *a*_{2}, ..., *a*_{qn} ), then the multiplication of this matrices in a way

will give the same matrix but for length *p* + *q*. As soon as such multiplication is associative, next we will use fast matrix exponentiation algorithm to calculate *M*[*i*][*j*] (the answer for *a*_{1}, *a*_{2}, ..., *a*_{nT}) — matrix *mt*[*i*][*j*] raised in power *T*. The answer is the maximum in matrix *M*. Such solution has complexity .

Jury's solution (with matrices): 13390660

There's an alternative solution. As soon as *a*_{1}, *a*_{2}, ..., *a*_{nT} contains maximum *n* distinct elements, it's any non-decreasing subsequence has a maximum of *n* - 1 increasing consequtive element pairs. Using that fact, one could calculate standard longest non-decreasing subsequence dynamic programming on first *n* array blocks (*a*_{1}, ..., *a*_{n2}) and longest non-decreasing subsequence DP on the last *n* array blocks (*a*_{nT - n + 1}, ..., *a*_{nT}). All other *T* - 2*n* blocks between them will make subsegment of consequtive equal elements in longest non-decreasing subsequence.

So, for fixed *a*_{i}, in which longest non-decreasing subsequence of length *p* on first *n* blocks array ends, and for fixed *a*_{j} ≥ *a*_{i}, in which longest non-decreasing subsequence of length *s* on last *n* blocks array starts, we must update the answer with *p* + (*T* - 2*n*)*count*(*a*_{i}) + *s*, where *count*(*x*) is the number of occurences of *x* in *a*_{1}, ..., *a*_{n} array. This gives us solution.

**Cdiv1**

Let's fix *s* for every (*l*, *s*) pair. One could easily prove, that if subarray contains *a*_{i} element, than *a*_{i} must be greater-or-equal than *a*_{j} for every *j* such that . Let's use this idea and fix *g* = *gcd*(*n*, *s*) (it must be a divisor of *n*). To check if *a*_{i} can be in subarray with such constraints, let's for every 0 ≤ *r* < *g* calculate

.

It's true that every good subarray must consist of and only of . For finding all such subarrays we will use two pointers approach and for every good *a*_{i}, such that is not good we will find *a*_{j} such that are good and is not good. Let has *k* elements . Any it's subarray is superior, so it gives us arrays of length 1, 2, ..., *k* with count *k*, *k* - 1, ..., 1. As soon as sum of all *k* is not greater than *n*, we could just increase counts straightforward. There's a case when all *a*_{i} are good, in which we must do another increases. Next we must add to the answer only counts of length *x*, such that *gcd*(*x*, *n*) = *g*.

Solution described above has complexity *O*(*d*(*n*)*n*), where *d*(*n*) is the number of divisors of *n*.

It is a common fact that for a prime *p* and integer *n* maximum α, such that *p*^{α}|*n*! is calculated as , where *p*^{w} ≤ *n* < *p*^{w + 1}. As soon as , the maximum α for is calculated as .

One could see, that if we consider numbers *n*, *k* and *n* - *k* in *p*-th based numeric system, rounded-down division by *p*^{x} means dropping last *x* digits of its *p*-th based representation. As soon as *k* + (*n* - *k*) = *n*, every *i*-th summand in α corresponds to carry in adding *k* to *n* - *k* in *p*-th numeric system from *i* - 1-th to *i*-th digit position and is to be 0 or 1.

First, let convert *A* given in statement from 10 to *p*-th numeric system. In case, if α is greater than number of digits in *A* in *p*-th numeric system, the answer is 0. Next we will calculate dynamic programming on *A* *p*-th based representation.

*dp*[*i*][*x*][*e*][*r*] — the answer for prefix of length *i* possible equal to prefix of *A* representation (indicator *e*), *x*-th power of *p* was already calculated, and there must be carry equal to *r* from current to previous position. One could calculate it by bruteforcing all of *p*^{2} variants of placing *i*-th digits in *n* and *k* according to *r* and *e* and *i*-th digit of *A*, and make a translation to next state. It can be avoided by noticing that the number of variants of placing digits is always a sum of arithmetic progression and can be calculated in *O*(1).

It's highly recommended to examine jury's solution with complexity *O*(|*A*|^{2} + |*A*|*min*(|*A*|, α)).

**Ediv1**

One could prove that the number of binary functions on 4 variables is equal to 2^{24}, and can be coded by storing a 2^{4}-bit binary mask, in which every bit is storing function value for corresponding variable set. It is true, that if *mask*_{f} and *mask*_{g} are correspond to functions *f*(*A*, *B*, *C*, *D*) and *g*(*A*, *B*, *C*, *D*), then function (*f*&g)(A, *B*, *C*, *D*) corresponds to *mask*_{f}&*mask*_{g} bitmask.

Now, we could parse expression given input into binary tree. I should notice that the number of non-list nodes of such tree is about . Now, let's calculate dynamic programming on every vertex *v* — *dp*[*v*][*mask*] is the number of ways to place symbols in expression in the way that subtree of vertex *v* will correspond to function representing by *mask*. For list nodes such dynamic is calculated pretty straightforward by considering all possible *mask* values and matching it with the variable. One could easily recalculate it for one node using calculated answers for left and right subtree in 4^{16} operations: *dp*[*v*][*lmask*|*rmask*] + = *dp*[*l*][*lmask*] * *dp*[*r*][*rmask*].

But all the task is how to make it faster. One could calculate *s*[*mask*], where *s*[*mask*] is equal to sum of all its submasks (the masks containing 1-bits only in positions where *mask* contains 1-bits) in 2^{4}·2^{24} operations using following code:

```
for (int mask = 0; mask < (1 << 16); ++mask) s[mask] = dp[x][mask];
for (int i = 0; i < 16; ++i)
for (int mask = 0; mask < (1 << 16); ++mask)
if (!(mask & (1 << i))) s[mask ^ (1 << i)] += s[mask];
```

Let's calculate *sl*[*mask*] and *sr*[*mask*] for *dp*[*l*][*mask*] and *dp*[*r*][*mask*] respectively. If we will find *s*[*mask*] = *sl*[*mask*] * *sr*[*mask*], *s*[*mask*] will contain multiplications of values of pairs of masks from left and right *dp*'s, which are submasks of *mask*. As soon as we need pairs, which in bitwise OR will give us exactly *mask*, we should exclude pairs, which in bitwise OR gives a submask of *mask*, not equal to *mask*. This gives us exclusion-inclusion principle idea. The formula of this will be

, where *p* is the parity of number of bits in *mask*^*submask*.

Such sum could be calculated with approach above, but subtracting instead of adding

```
for (int mask = 0; mask < (1 << 16); ++mask) s[mask] = sl[mask] * sr[mask];
for (int i = 0; i < 16; ++i)
for (int mask = 0; mask < (1 << 16); ++mask)
if (!(mask & (1 << i))) s[mask ^ (1 << i)] -= s[mask];
```

In such way we will recalculate dynamic for one vertex in about 3·2^{4}·2^{16} operations.

Brute force, with a little bit of greedy, also passes for DIV2-C/DIV1-A.

Can someone explain test #5 from Div1 C?

It is said that the answer is 3 but I can only see two good pairs ((0,1) and (2,1)).

There is an another pair (2,2). We don't have a restriction

l+s≤nOhh, thank you! I didn't assume that restriction but somehow missed that case anyway.

Similar problem to Div1 E was given in SRM 518 on Topcoder. The difference is that there was XOR instead of OR in the problem from that SRM. Interestingly enough, the approach from that problem can be used in Div1 E as well with a few modifications. For our problem the solution in terms described on Topcoder forum would be:

For example, if we want to compute

`(x[0], x[1], ..., x[7]) @ (y[0], y[1], ..., y[7]) = (z[0], z[1], ..., z[7])`

Calculate two smaller

`@`

operations:`(x[0]+x[4], x[1]+x[5], x[2]+x[6], x[3]+x[7]) @ (y[0]+y[4], y[1]+y[5], y[2]+y[6], y[3]+y[7]) = (a, b, c, d)`

`(x[0], x[1], x[2], x[3]) @ (y[0], y[1], y[2], y[3]) = (e, f, g, h)`

Then

`z[0] = e`

,`z[1] = f`

,`z[2] = g`

,`z[3] = h`

,`z[4] = a - e`

,`z[5] = b - f`

,`z[6] = c - g`

,`z[7] = d - h`

.I like to describe this approach in terms of formal polynomial multiplication where variables are taken from

Z_{2}and coefficients belong to an arbitrary ring. I never seen a similar approach being described anywhere.Consider a formal sum from

Z_{2}[x_{},x_{2}, ...,x_{n}] of formP(x_{1}, ...,x_{n}) =c_{0...00}+c_{0...01}x_{1}+c_{0...10}x_{2}+c_{0...11}x_{1}x_{2}+ ... +c_{1...11}x_{1}x_{2}...x_{n}(the indices are binary masks of lengthn). We'll use the following rules of multiplication: coefficientsc_{ * }are treated as usual numbers and are multiplied as numbers. Variablesx_{i}are multiplied like monomials with an additional rule thatx_{i}^{2}=x_{i}(as ifx_{i}belonged to the fieldZ_{2}).Now we can multiply such polynomials, for example (3 + 2

x_{1}- 3x_{2}) × (x_{1}+ 4x_{1x}_{2}) = 5x_{1}+ 5x_{1x}_{2}.Note that when we multiply polynomial

P(x_{1}, ...,x_{n}) with coefficients {c_{0...0}, ...,c_{1...1}} by polynomialQ(x_{1}, ...,x_{n}) with coefficients {d_{0...0}, ...,d_{1...1}}, we get a polynomialR(x_{1}, ...,x_{n}) with coefficients {e_{0...0}, ...,e_{1...1}} satisfying the following formula:It's exactly the formula of convolution we want to calculate, so now we'll understand how to calculate coefficients of product of polynomials $P$ and

Qquickly.Suppose that

P(x_{1}, ...,x_{n}) =A(x_{2}, ...,x_{n}) +x_{1}B(x_{2}, ...,x_{n}),Q(x_{1}, ...,x_{n}) =C(x_{2}, ...,x_{n}) +x_{1}D(x_{2}, ...,x_{n}) (i. e. divide both polynomials into two parts, that containsx_{1}and that doesn't contain). Now let's rewrite the product:PQ= (A+x_{1B})(C+x_{1D}) =AC+x_{1}BC+x_{1}AD+ (x_{1})^{2}BD=AC+x_{1}((A+B)(C+D) -AC). So, in order to multiply two polynomials of length $2^{n}$, we should perform

O(2^{n}) preparation work and then perform two multiplications of polynomials of length 2^{n - 1}:A×Cand (A+B) × (C+D). This leads to a recurrence alike to the Karatsuba's algorithm that does not three actions per recursive call but two:.

That is exactly the same thing as everybody did (and as model solution), but I like this way of thinking since it allows to see the similarity of this algorithm and FFT or Karatsuba multiplication.

As soon as a1, a2, ..., anT contains maximum n distinct elements, it's any non-decreasing subsequence has a maximum of n - 1 increasing consequtive element pairs. Using that fact, one could calculate standard longest non-decreasing subsequence dynamic programming on first n array blocks (a1, ..., an2) and longest non-decreasing subsequence DP on the last n array blocks (anT - n + 1, ..., anT).

I just can't catch that, and can you explain more about why we can precompute the first n array blocks and last n array blocks to get the answer? Although I got an AC with this approach just now, but I'm still puzzled, I'll be grateful if you can explain more about this.

If you consider an array from

nto 1, you would need to go through the arrayntimes to get the increasing sequence from 1 ton.In this question, since you can't go through the entire sequence, we apply dp to a small portion of the entire sequence and extrapolate it to get the answer.

If you consider the blocks where you are actually changing the element you are at, you'll see that you're only doing n changes at max. This means that for the

T-nblocks, you were stuck at a single element.In order to bring a little order to this, we push the increments we are making to the beginning and ending, and let the blocks with the same element stay in the middle. A block which has only one element contributes only to its count in the original array, so there's also no point in having multiple elements stay the same in various blocks, one is enough.

Since we're leaving

nblocks in the beginning andnblocks in the end, it gives us enough freedom to arrive to whichever element we want in the middle and start and end with whichever element we want.Consider the example 456712344.

While it would be nice to take all 4s throughout the entire sequence, it would be little more optimal to choose 12344 in the first block, go for all 4

sand then come to 4567 in the last block.You are taking n^2 element at start and n^2 element at end. Calculating Longest non-decreasing subsequence for this alone cost you O(n^4).

But you mentioned overall complexity O(n^2logn). How are you calculating Longest non-decreasing subsequence in less time??

If you use the standard DP algorithm to find longest non-decreasing sub-sequence from n^2 elements then complexity will be O(n^4). By using the given constraints on elements (<=300), and making some changes : In DP part, instead of storing the length of longest non decreasing sub-sequence ending at ith position, you can maintain an array of size 300 and store the longest non decreasing sub-sequence ending at ith number. By doing so, the complexity will become O(300*n^2).

I was debugging my solution for GCD Table and i found that in test case 23, there is actually no solution. This solution does not get accepted 13406372 while this soltuion gets accepted 13406211. The difference between two is that is of a if condition which will occur only if for some number we don't have i,j gcd(ans[i],ans[j] )=number. Which a case for no possible. Correct me if i am wrong. Also if results, i have got, is correct then please reconsider grading Problem C div2 and Problem A div1 for this contest and update the ratings if possible.

Here's what's going wrong:

You first push a[i] onto ans, and later you remove all gcds between a[i] and numbers in ans, but the last element of ans is a[i], so you end up with two a[i]'s in your priority queue that shouldn't really be there. If you move the push_back behind the for loop it should work.
