Thank you MR anvari

omG Tnx AA :D

This should also help.

thanks for the link. It was helpful.

another segment tree & bits

Segment tree on string: Letter Array

Hackerrank's advanced level problems on segment trees are nice too. Check them out.

I was looking for this everywhere , i think it will be great helpful for me Thank you.

How come i can only see problem names in russian?

Umm... right now it can't be seen in english, which I believe most of us need, it would be great to show it like this: [problem code] [english name] / [russian name]

Now you can see problems in English :))

Again they are in russian; Why ?

UPDYou fixed that again, but in my comment it is russian yet,how to fix it?Is 356A — Knight Tournament a segment tree problem?

A little bit late ;-) Yes, it is possible to solve it with a segment tree. But instead of updating a single value and querying for ranges, you have to invert it so that you can modify an interval and get access to each element. Additionally you have to make sure that you insert the fights in the reversed order, otherwise some fights will overwrite others. Here is my implementation: 23198751

Thank you :)

Thank YOU :)

This should be updated with the problem links in this post. How can it be done ??

Segment Tree & Dp: 629D - Babaei and Birthday Cake

Segment Tree & Heavy Light Decomposition : 117E - Tree or not Tree

Wow! This will be so much helpful to many. Thanks for the effort!

760E is also a segment tree problem

This question(570C) can also be solved using segment tree.Here is my solution.

That's overkill. There exists an easier and faster solution for that problem.

Segment tree + dp 675E - Trains and Statistic

You can also find many Segment Tree problems on A2 Online Judge. They are ranked by their difficulty, and also including many online judges like codeforces, SPOJ, codechef etc.

Segment tree + DP problem : D. Babaei and Birthday Cake

Can anyone help me with this? I don't know how use a segment tree in order to solve the problem. I solved this using a C++ set. Thanks in advance.

How to solve 459D using a segment tree? I solved it using Fenwick tree but I could not think of a solution using segment tree.

This blog contains 20 Segment tree Problems (Easy, Medium, hard) along with there solutions. Hope it helps someone.

Thanx it was really helpful.

Shouldn't 292E — Copying Data be under the "Lazy Propagation" section?

If not, how to solve this problem using just classic segment tree?

Nice list, by the way.

I solved it using Lazy Propagation, I couldn't find a way without it, I join the request for a non-lazy-propagation solution.

How to solve Enemy is Weak Problem using segment tree,I'm not able to understand the editorial.

Links Problem Enemy is Weak

Editorial blogpost

1 Let's use coordinate compression on a[i]. Then we have all the a[i] in the range (0, N].

2 Let's create new array b[MAXN].

b[i] — amount of j what a [j] > a [i] and j < i.

It can be done with Fenwick or Segment tree.

3 Answer will be sum of d [i].

d[i] — sum of all b [j] what j < i and a [j] > a [i].

Sorry For My English

Thanks !! It was very very helpful.

Thanks a lot bud. Finally a compilation of segtrees problems in codeforces

877E — segment tree on tree

Why the code is showing TLE for Xenia and Bit operation. http://codeforces.com/contest/339/submission/33017272

Use BufferedReader and PrintWriter

Thanks brother :) This is my 1st code using segment tree. I really wanted to learn this.

http://www.spoj.com/problems/CDC12_H/ . Can you help me in this problem. http://www.spoj.com/submit/CDC12_H/id=20755931 . Here is my submission. I am getting TLE in this code also.

377D - Developing Game

605D - Board Game — segment tree and ...

...BFS?

540E - Infinite Inversions does not really require segment tree, Fenwick tree is enough.

Great effort!!

920F - SUM and REPLACE

could solve with segment... :))

Do you need lazy propagation? That was my idea in-contest but couldn't implement it right.

no you don't

Easy!

Combi don't comment it.The person who comment it is Flying_Dragon_02

Don't lie dude.

sorry everyone!! I forget to log out so Flying_Dragon_02 can say something.... it's not good. We're just student. This topic's very good for me because I need to improve my skill in IT

Can someone explain , how to solve http://codeforces.com/contest/459/problem/D using segment tree . I tried to solve it using merge sort tree but got TLE . Then , i could solve it using BIT and map .

I solved it using merge sort tree. Needed a little bit of optimization though.

Problem link

Can anyone help me out? I m stuck and not able to find any editorial for it.

958C3 - Encryption (hard) ==> dp + segment(bit)

it's a good problem for practice in my opinion :)

One Occurrence

How is https://codeforces.com/contest/438/problem/D a lazy propagation problem?

This problem also can be solved using segment tree: 101061E - Playing with numbers

I have solved it using segment tree.

914D

877E - Danil and a Part-time Job , good problem about segment tree+tree+Lazy Propagating.

Any of those about Persistent Segment Tree?

Thanks! It's really useful.

Thank you AminAnvari! Can someone share a list of MUST SOLVE Dynamic Programming Problems on Codeforces?

https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/325

356A — Knight Tournament can be solved using set. No segment tree required

1179 C

1146E — Hot is Cold

Lazy Propagation 1114F — Please, another Queries on Array?

Thank you so much for the set of tasks!

DP+segment tree: B. The Bakery

thank you so much my segment tree journey started

Can someone pls give me a bit intuition of using segment tree for 338E — Optimize!

Has anyone solved 375D — Trees and Queries ? It is the last problem mentioned in the Segment Tree and Tree section?

My approach — I flattened the tree with Euler tour and I couldn't figure out the way to compute the answer with MO's algorithm. How with a change in k, can I get a current query answer from my past queries?? Any suggestion or external references are appreciated

I've solved this problem using MO's algorithm. First I've transformed the given tree into an array based on traversal order. Two index for every node. One for starting time another for finishing time. Within the segment lies the others vertexes of it's subgraph Then based on query nodes, I've a range for left and right. Then I ordered them in MO's ordering. In the MO's for add and remove function, I used two counter array. One for counting the appearances of the colors. And number of appearances of number of colors

Hi, thanks for your answer. Can you share the submission with me?

Parenthesis Checking — A good segment tree problem from the recent AtCoder Beginner Contest

Hey! I just wanted to ask how you kept track of the minimum element in the cumulative sum. I saw the tutorial but didn't really get it. Any hints?

In case you still haven't solved it, here are few hints:

Hint 1Represent the string as an array -->

open brackets = 1andclose brackets = -1Hint 2What was the reason behind transforming the string into an array? What advantage does working with numbers have over working with characters? Think...

Hint 3Working with numbers allows us to perform range sums. But how does it help us here?

Hint 4Recall the properties of a regular bracket sequence

Property 1No.of open brackets == No.of close brackets

How do I write this in terms of numbers?Sum of numbers == 0

Property 2For every index $$$i$$$ in the regular bracket sequence, the following condition holds true: no.of open brackets on or before index $$$i$$$ $$$>=$$$ no.of close brackets on or before index $$$i$$$

How do I write this in terms of numbers?Minimum prefix sum >= 0

Hint 5What data must we store in the nodes of the segment tree?

Answer1Minimum prefix sum of the segment

2Sum of the segment

Hint 6How do we calculate the minimum prefix sum of the range covered by a node using the values of its children?

Answer`curr.minpref = min(left.minpref, left.sum + right.minpref);`

Not clear how this line works?This video from the cf edu section might give you some insights

And what about the sum of the range?

Answer`curr.sum = left.sum + right.sum;`

Pretty self explanatory I guess.

Hint 7That's it! Open your ide and implement the above discussed logic!

Still not able to solve?Here's my code

Have a nice day ahead :)

This is the same problem as Sereja and Brackets mentioned above. You just check if max subsequence is equal to (r-l+1)

nothing

Aww... This is very helpful. I'm just going to strenghthen my skills in segment tree

I found another problem that uses "Segment Tree on Euler Tour of the tree" to solve it. The problem is 1132G - Greedy Subsequences and the tutorial is https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/65752.
