 » Such a great second solution for D.

 » Can someone share some intuitions for how to come up with a solution for problem E ? Implementing the editorial's solution is relatively simple but coming up with such a solution from scratch is not as simple.
•  » » I found this comment really helpful.
 » Can anybody explain me how to do DFS on a complemented graph fast enough. I don't understand the explonation for the problem D. The realization that i can see takes $O(n k log m)$ time where k is amount reachable vertices. For example, n = 5 and 4 is reachable frome 5, 3 — from 5, 1 — from 3 and 2 — from 3. the algorithm start at 5. it looks through (1, 2, 3, 4), sees that 4 is reachable and goes to 4. it looks throuth (1, 2, 3) and doesn't see reachable and goes back to 5 and looks through (1, 2, 3), sees that 3 is reachable and goes to 3, looks through (1, 2) and sees that 2 is reachable and goes to 2, looks throuth (1), sees that 1 is unreachable, goes back to 3, looks through (1), 1 is reachable, goes to 1, looks through (), goes back to 3, then goes back to 5. End.In this way I have undertood the explanation. Then let's cosider a graph with n vertex wich has only edges from n to each node of set {n — k + 1, ..., n — 1}. For such graph the steps which described above takes O(n k log(m)) time.
 » could you anyone give me example code of C please?? i can't understand the meaning of editorial.

 » Best codeforces explanation I've ever seen. Thanks!
 » Can some one explain me how the complexity for first solution of problem D is O(n+m). Won't it be n^2 in worst case if set P keeps on increasing.
•  » » 17 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   We check if pupil adds to $P$ in $O(deg)$ time, where $deg$ is number of pupils, with which he can swap. Sum of $deg$ for all pupils is $O(m)$.
•  » » » Got it .. thanks a lot!!
•  » » » 16 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   "This solution works in O(n+m)" in solution 1 but assuming a scenario such that every element could swap with last element(Nastya) but could not swap with the element just previously inserted in set P(element behind ith elem in queue), then finding whether ith could swap with all elements of P would take O(n*n)==( 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + n-1). Correct me if my analogy is wrong. ex. 6 10 6 3 1 5 4 2 6 2 3 2 1 2 5 2 6 4 3 4 1 4 6 5 3 5 6 1 Wouldn't complexity be O(n*n) in such cases?Here is my Submission are there any other specific way implementation which could reduce complexity?
•  » » » » I just got the idea, actually it will be O(n+m) but one point to note is that in worst case m could be equal to n*n.
 » Can someone explain D's solutions with an example ?
•  » » So we start from end of the queue, i.e., from Nastya. Now if person next to Nastya will let her move to front, then we will swap them. But if he doesn't then we'll add him to a set P. This set P signifies the set of all people that need to be swapped with a new person we encounter so that Nastya can move a step forward in the queue (as Nastya can move a step forward only if all the persons ahead of her, that can't be swapped with her, move a step forward). Note: Nastya was added initially to set P, as she always needs to be swapped to move a step forward.I will give an example if still needed.
•  » » » please give the example and explain it
 » I have understood solution B of Problem D..But I am not able to understand the code!.Specifically what is "was" vector...and cnt and cnt2? Can anybody explain it? Thank You
 » can someone please explain C , i did not understood the editorial
•  » » Just remember one thing. After taking any number of transposes the value of (i + j) doesn't change. Here (i, j) is the position of any cell in the matrix. So just store the count of every element for every (i + j) for both the given matrices and compare both. Here is my submission
•  » » » 17 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   Why the value of (i+j) doesn't change.
•  » » » » Suppose you are taking the transpose of a square submatrix whose upper left corner is (a, b). consider a point (i, j) who fall under the submatrix. Its coordinates w.r.t. to (a, b) would be (i — a, j — b). After talking transpose it would become (j — b, i — a). Now again the real coordinates of this point would be (j — b + a, i — a + b). So you can see initially the coordinates were (i, j) for which sum of coordinates was i + j. In the later case it is also i + j.
 » Is my understanding of solution 1 for Problem D correct?So we start from end of the queue, i.e., from Nastya. Now if person next to Nastya will let her move to front, then we will swap them.

•  » » 17 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   you have to observe that in any case u transpose a matrix or a submatrix , the elements in the diagonals are always same . so given two matrix a and b , if every diagonal element of matrix a = diagonal element of matrix b , then matrix can be transposed in any scenario , else now .
•  » » You have two types of diagonals, ones with i+j constant(top right to bottom left) and ones with i-j constant(top left to bottom right). When you take any square sub matrix and apply transpose, you find that elements on the 2nd type of diagonal change positions. But they remain on the same diagonal. In other words,  can't change it's place.  and  can swap places among themselves but not with any other element. We can also obtain any permutation of an (i+j) diagonal by starting with the top left corner and progressively fixing elements in the next diagonal by picking matrix of size 2x2 and swapping elements which aren't on the main diagonal of it. So we only need to check if the corresponding multisets of diagonal (i+j) are same.
 » Can anyone give explanation of solution 1 of problem D?Whats the idea?
 » 16 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   Explanation of problem C:Very first and only one thing you need to understand is that "Elements along any diagonal from top-right to bottom-left will always remain in that diagonal, no matter how many transposes we perform on whatever submatrices". This is true because we can always choose a sub-matrix of size 2x2 and change order of elements in that diagonal (from top-right to bottom-left) and get original matrix. ex 1 2 3 4 after transpose will change to 1 3 2 4 we swapped 2 and 3 while 1 and 4 are still in place.For an example of 3x3 matrix see fig. Figure So only thing which matters is that we have same elements in every diagonals in whatever order.Here is my submission
 » 16 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   DmitryGrigorev In the editorial for the graph approach of problem 1136D, could you please tell what you meant by standard algorithm "DFS by complement graph". Thank you.
 » 16 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   I wrote a recursive solution for D. I think the overall complexity of my approach is )(n+m) but I am getting Time Limit Exceeded. https://codeforces.com/contest/1136/submission/52883893My recursive function on a given position tries to move the pupil at that position ahead in the queue by one place by either:- 1. trying to swap with the person in right in front. 2. trying to get the person right in front to move ahead so that another pupil comes right in front and then try the same thing with the new pupil.Can someone help me why it's getting TLE? Thanks.
