10765 - Doves and bombs

Post by christephan » Wed Jan 30, 2008 5:59 am

My O(n^2) algorithm (DFS+heap) got TLE.

Any better solutions? THX.

I think I was sleepy..

When I get up today, I add backtracking to my DFS algorithm such that I can prevent re-calculating as much as posibble.
The algorithm now may be O(|E| + |V| log |V|), I'm not sure. (n log n is for heap sort), where |E| <= 10 |V|.

Then now AC with 0.03s

OK, I make a standard implementation of finding the articulation points with a DFS. Got correct output on the sample test cases and other I made up myseld but I still get WA. Any ideas?

Code: Select all

#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <cstring>
#include <string>
#include <algorithm>
#include <queue>
#include <cstdio>
#include <utility>
using namespace std;
struct Station
{
    int number, pigeonValue;
    Station(int n = 0, int p = 0)
    {
        number = n;
        pigeonValue = p;
    }
    bool operator < (const Station &other) const
    {
        if(pigeonValue == other.pigeonValue) return number < other.number;
        return pigeonValue > other.pigeonValue;
    }
};
const int MAXN = 10001;
int N, M;
vector<int> G[MAXN];
int parent[MAXN];
bool visited[MAXN];
int DFSRoot;
int rootChildren;
bool articulationPoint[MAXN];
int pigeonValue[MAXN];
int numberOfTreeChildren[MAXN];
int dfs_num[MAXN];
int dfs_low[MAXN];
int counter;
vector<vector<Station> > answers;
int DFS(int root)
{
    visited[root] = true;
    dfs_num[root] = counter;
    dfs_low[root] = counter;
    ++counter;
    int nodes = 0;
    int SCCs = 0;
    for(int i = 0; i < G[root].size(); ++i)
    {
        int child = G[root][i];

Print a blank line after the output for each set of input, including the last one.

With and without printing the additional blank line afer the last test case I still get WA :/
