I am trying something similar to digit dp where we need to find the number of numbers in the range a to b satisfying some property, just in this case we have strings.

My helper function is actually calculating the number of good strings which are lexicographically less than or equal s and do not contain the substring evil.

Then I simply subtract the answer for two cases.

Spoiler

This solution only passes 15 test cases. Help me please.  Comments (15)

Therefore, the answer should be subtracting the results of the two cases $s2$ and $prev(s1)$, where $prev(s1)$ is the previous $n$-letter lexicographically ordered string.

 » 2 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   I have a solution for this problem. Will explain in more detail in some time. Short-explanation :- 1)First see how to count the number of strings between s1 and s2 . Let n1 = number of strings between (aaaaaaa...a and s1) , n2 = number of strings (aaaaa...aaaa and s2) , hence, answer = n2-n1+1 . (can be calculated easily with dp)2)If you know how to do the step-1 , you will realize, that you only need to know, for each length-'i' (from aaaaa--->zzzzz(here, i = 5) , the number of strings which contains the substring "s3" atleast once, if you know it for length 'i' , transition to state 'i+1' is easy. 3)If you want the exact recurrence relations , I'll write them .

 » 2 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   For those who don't know about DFA I constructed a DFA for the string evil (i.e the DFA would reject all the strings which contains evil as a substring).Then I used simple digit dp with two tights (t1,t2) for strings s1,s2 respectively and checked whether the the string is accepted by the DFA or not.Here is my CODE it took 108ms to run(faster than all the codes submitted so far) Note the header files are missing as they are already included in leetcode's IDE.
