    take for example a permutation where 2 appears after 3 whereas to make the permutation sorted 2 needs to appear before 3. For this to happen we must choose 2 as our x and perform the operation this will reposition 3 after 2. Hence we do this for all x where x+1 lies before x in the given permutation.

        My advice is solve more problems,for improving your implementation so you can crack A quickly solve topcode div2 and for constructive problems just keep solving more problems as time goes on ideas will repeat i know it seems like impossible but yes and this way you train your brain to think of different patterns. So as conclusion if you want to have intuition solve problem especially constructive but don't forget about learning other new algorithms and implementing them or using them to solve the problems.You need to find the balance that's it and of course it takes real time to improve so you need to keep hardwork.

    It says that if the pair of values $$$(k, k+1)$$$ appears inverted in the input permutation, then you need to perform the operation with $$$x = k+1$$$ in order to get rid of that inversion. Now, just note that if you consider all these pairs and perform the operation when needed, starting from $$$k = 2$$$ until $$$ k = n$$$, the permutation will be ordered.

    let's start from k = 1 and see if the (k + 1) position comes after the k position we stop when the condition fails and count it as a turn we chose x as the last item that we get, then we pick another k just the last item we didn't get from the previous turn, Each time we write a set of numbers in the correct order as much as we can, So the answer is the number of turns. To do that just count how many pos[i] > pos[i + 1] for all i from 1 to n — 1. It's exactly this problem : Collecting Numbers

      it can further be optimised as number are 1 — n, we can just place the index of x to the index x in sorted array

    Let, firstly, solve simpler problem. Assume starting time is $$$0$$$ (meaning the first imaginary quest which is prerequisite of any other quest was done at day 0, hour 0). Maintain a $$$dp$$$ array, where $$$dp[v]$$$ is the day when the quest $$$v$$$ is completed. It's clear that if the quest has no prerequisite it's $$$dp$$$ value is zero. Otherwise, let $$$u_1,...,u_k$$$ be prerequisites of $$$v$$$, then $$$dp[v] = max(dp[u_i] + f(u_i))$$$ where $$$f(x) = 1$$$ if $$$h[x] > h[v]$$$ and $$$f(x) = 0$$$ otherwise. Answer to the problem is maximum value of $$$dp[v] * k + h[v]$$$ (Since we are counting starting time as $$$0$$$ and $$$v$$$'s quest is done after $$$dp[v]$$$ days on $$$h[v]$$$ hours). However, we need to choose optimal starting time and somehow maintain the answer. Notice that optimal starting time is some $$$h[i]$$$, where $$$i$$$'s quest has no prerequisite. Assume $$$v_1,...,v_k$$$ are such quests and WLOG assume $$$h[v_1] <= ... <= h[v_k]$$$. We will update starting time from $$$0$$$ to $$$h[v_1]$$$, from $$$h[v_1]$$$ to $$$h[v_2]$$$ and so on to $$$h[v_n]$$$. Let assume we are making transition from $$$h[v_i]$$$ to $$$h[v_{i+1}]$$$. So firstly we must update $$$dp[v_{i + 1}]$$$, then we mist update it's children. So we can simple use DFS. Also notice that every quest will be updated only once, so it should pass the time limit.

    For point $$$i$$$, if the xor of an interval $$$[i, r[$$$ contains a bit of $$$maskStart_i$$$, then it means it is obtainable, since at one point prior, an interval $$$[i, r'[$$$ with $$$r' > r$$$ had that bit for most significant bit of the xor. Same for $$$maskEnd_i$$$.

    So you keep these $$$2N$$$ masks as you iterate over subarrays in length non-increasing to know which ones are obtainable.

    By the way I love your profile picture, where is it from ?

      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    I thought on the same idea during the contest, but couldn't do it. The problem with the ternary search was that the function isn't strictly increasing/decreasing, meaning there is some value x, for which $$$f(x) = f(x + 1)$$$, but $$$f(x)$$$ isn't extremum of the function.

      I think it's not just about $$$f(x) = f(x + 1)$$$, but that the function can also alternate going up and down wildly (or at least, that's what I saw when testing this locally).

For problem E, I didn't understand the editorial, and most other solutions seemed to use some form of Dynamic Programming, which seems different from what I did.

I start by calculating the maximal end time when you start questing at the earliest possible time, which is easy to calculate in O(V + E) time using the topological ordering of the DAG. However, this might not be optimal: it can be better to defer some quests to day 2 so we can start later in day 1, without affecting the end time. So I consider all the starting times of quests that have no dependencies. The key is that I update the end times for other quests incrementally, for an overall O(V + E log V) solution.

    mark me if I am wrong ? What I got from your code is that particular (ith) quest with (0 dependency) can either be done at (h[i] or h[i]+k) hours so after that you are checking effect of (h[i]+k) ending on other quest so , its complexity will be O((number of 0 dependency node)*(ElogV)) how its possible to get accepted , or It is like each quest can be updated one ,if it is then why it is updated once , please explain

      I tried to explain that in the last two paragraphs of the comments at the top of the file. It's not immediately obvious, but for each vertex v, we increase end_time[v] at most once, by exactly K. That means it's actually just O(V + E log V) time overall, not O(V + VE log V) as it would otherwise be.

      And tfg pointed out, correctly, that the priority queue is not needed, so instead of O(E log V) it could be something like O(E), but the really important part is that it's not O(VE), which would be much too slow to pass. The difference between O(E) and O(E log V) is relatively small.

    8 months ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it

    Here's my wrong idea on F: (maybe it's right, I don't know)

    Let $$$s(l,r)=a_l\oplus a_{l+1}\oplus\dots\oplus a_r$$$.

    First let's reverse the operations. Instead of changing subarray $$$[1,n]$$$ into $$$[i,i]$$$, we try to expand $$$[i,i]$$$ into $$$[1,n]$$$. For a subarray $$$[l,r]$$$, we need to find an adjacent subarray (either $$$[r+1,x]$$$ or $$$[x,l-1]$$$) which has a smaller $$$xor$$$ value than $$$s(l,r)$$$, and merge them.

    Let's look at the maximum most significant bit of all $$$a_i$$$. Let $$$cnt$$$ be the number of $$$a_i$$$ s that have this bit. Let $$$b_1,b_2,\dots,b_{cnt}$$$ be all $$$i$$$ that $$$a_i$$$ has this bit.

    If $$$cnt$$$ is odd, then only $$$b_1,b_3,\dots,b_{cnt}$$$ are valid.

    If $$$cnt$$$ is even, then all $$$i\in[b_{2k-1}+1,b_{2k}-1]$$$ are invalid. We can merge all $$$a_{b_{2k-1}}\ \ ,a_{b_{2k-1}\ \ +1},\dots,a_{b_{2k}}$$$ into one number, which is $$$s(b_{2k-1},b_{2k})$$$. Then, the maximum most significant bit is gone and we go on to solve the problem for a smaller bit. What I still can't figure out is how to solve for $$$a_{b_i}$$$. Maybe it could be solved using Segment Tree.

    When you multiply (n+1) and n, because they are both int values, it overflows before stored into variable missing. Just change one of them into long long then multiply.

    long long missing = (n + 1) * (n) / 2; should be changed to long long missing = 1ll * (n + 1) * (n) / 2; or long long missing = (long long)(n + 1) * (n) / 2;.

    If you start the process on the 2nd day instead of the first, every value will increase by 1. So, if you had started earlier (meaning on any time of the day 1), values couldn’t have been bigger. Hence, they can increase only once.

    If the original array could have duplicates or values outside of range [0, n] the solution would be still pretty much the same. You can manually perform one operation on the original array, now all values are going to be MEX of some arrays of length $$$N$$$, so that guarantees that all values are now in range [0, n], moreover, after performing such an operation there can't be two duplicate values in the array. All that's left to do now is to decrease k by one and calculate the cyclic shift for k modulo n + 1.

        Although I believe it has $$$O(nlogn)$$$ time complexity because I used a set<int> to calculate the MEX values, also you might want to be a little bit more careful to handle the out of range and duplicate values correctly

I tried to implement my solution in E problem but it was giving TLE on testcase 5. please can someone show the mistakes in my code.
my submission: link

Here I have tried to explain my logic:
1. sorted the given array of time at which quest will start and then mapped the indexes accordingly.
2. made an array ind to store indegree of every node of the graph.
3. then calculated the time needed if we start from each node with 0 indegree(as it can be started independently), using calc function.
x = no. of nodes with 0 indegree.
idx: contains the index of node with 0 indegree.
val: contains the time needed to complete the quest if we start from here (to complete all the quests that are dependent on the particular node).
4. used some prefix, suffix logic to get the final ans. (to decide at which point to start)

I didn't get most of the edi, but I think that I is much easier (and I upsolved it this way):

I've stopped reading after getting to the point that we will take whole classes of adjacent paths. So let's connect them and make a directed edge from class of shorter paths to a class of longer paths if they contradict with each other. There surely is a way to extend one of the shorter paths into one of the longer paths if this is the case. So we might as well only use edges from a class to a class of paths longer by one. Aaaaaand this graph turns out to be a tree, where each vertex has a weight (number of paths in this class) and we have to pick a subset such that no pair ancestor-descendant is picked, so easy dp.

For problem B, I solved it using OrderStatisticTree. I don't know if anyone got this idea (Maybe the same observation in this editorial but different approach to utilize it). I wish I had an OST handy during the contest )';

The solution to 1863E says: So if we define $$$f(x,y)$$$ to be the smallest $$$z\ge y$$$… Is it a typo that the latter $$$y$$$ should be $$$x$$$?

For the F solution, why do we want that s ^ mask_start > 0 or s ^ mask_end > 0?

(Also if my understanding is correct, are mask_start and mask_end suffix and prefix xors of the initial array? Or am I potentially misunderstanding this part?)

Can someone help me to solve problem E. I want to do it with topological sort, and in order to solve it, I need to solve one subproblem first. How can I get the smallest lexicographic configuration of topological sort. For example, if there are two correct toposort configurations [4,1,2,3] and [1,4,2,3], how can I get the second one? Thanks in advance

Why there is so many like? There aren't code in it,I think it bad.
