Codeforces Round #333 — editorial
Difference between en2 and en3, changed 877 character(s)

div2A: Try conversions between bases.↵

div2B: Solve a simpler version of the problem where $A_{i+1} \neq A_i$ for all $i$.↵

div1A: What are the shortest paths of the vehicles? what's the shorter of those paths?↵

div1B: Forget about the ceiling function. Draw points $(i,A[i])$ and lines between them &mdash; what's the Lipschitz constant geometrically?↵

div1C: Some dynamic programming. Definitely not for the exp. score of one person &mdash; look at fixed scores instead.↵

div1D: Compute $dif(v)$ in $O(N)$ (without hashing) and then solve the problem in $O(N^2)$. Read my editorial of TREEPATH from Codechef :D.↵

div1E: Can you solve the problem without events of type 1 or 2? Also, how about solving it offline &mdash; as queries on subsets.↵

What, you thought I'd post solutions? Nope. Read the hints, maybe they'll help you. The solutions will appear here gradually.
