花花酱 LeetCode 1496. Path Crossing

Given a string path, where path[i] = 'N''S''E' or 'W', each representing moving one unit north, south, east, or west, respectively. You start at the origin (0, 0) on a 2D plane and walk on the path specified by path.

Return True if the path crosses itself at any point, that is, if at any time you are on a location you’ve previously visited. Return False otherwise.

Example 1:

Input: path = "NES"
Output: false 
Explanation: Notice that the path doesn't cross any point more than once.

Example 2:

Input: path = "NESWW"
Output: true
Explanation: Notice that the path visits the origin twice.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= path.length <= 10^4
  • path will only consist of characters in {'N', 'S', 'E', 'W}

Solution: Simulation + Hashtable

花花酱 LeetCode 1487. Making File Names Unique

Given an array of strings names of size n. You will create n folders in your file system such that, at the ith minute, you will create a folder with the name names[i].

Since two files cannot have the same name, if you enter a folder name which is previously used, the system will have a suffix addition to its name in the form of (k), where, k is the smallest positive integer such that the obtained name remains unique.

Return an array of strings of length n where ans[i] is the actual name the system will assign to the ith folder when you create it.

Example 1:

Input: names = ["pes","fifa","gta","pes(2019)"]
Output: ["pes","fifa","gta","pes(2019)"]
Explanation: Let's see how the file system creates folder names:
"pes" --> not assigned before, remains "pes"
"fifa" --> not assigned before, remains "fifa"
"gta" --> not assigned before, remains "gta"
"pes(2019)" --> not assigned before, remains "pes(2019)"

Example 2:

Input: names = ["gta","gta(1)","gta","avalon"]
Output: ["gta","gta(1)","gta(2)","avalon"]
Explanation: Let's see how the file system creates folder names:
"gta" --> not assigned before, remains "gta"
"gta(1)" --> not assigned before, remains "gta(1)"
"gta" --> the name is reserved, system adds (k), since "gta(1)" is also reserved, systems put k = 2. it becomes "gta(2)"
"avalon" --> not assigned before, remains "avalon"

Example 3:

Input: names = ["onepiece","onepiece(1)","onepiece(2)","onepiece(3)","onepiece"]
Output: ["onepiece","onepiece(1)","onepiece(2)","onepiece(3)","onepiece(4)"]
Explanation: When the last folder is created, the smallest positive valid k is 4, and it becomes "onepiece(4)".

Example 4:

Input: names = ["wano","wano","wano","wano"]
Output: ["wano","wano(1)","wano(2)","wano(3)"]
Explanation: Just increase the value of k each time you create folder "wano".

Example 5:

Input: names = ["kaido","kaido(1)","kaido","kaido(1)"]
Output: ["kaido","kaido(1)","kaido(2)","kaido(1)(1)"]
Explanation: Please note that system adds the suffix (k) to current name even it contained the same suffix before.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= names.length <= 5 * 10^4
  • 1 <= names[i].length <= 20
  • names[i] consists of lower case English letters, digits and/or round brackets.

Solution: Hashtable

Use a hashtable to store the mapping form base_name to its next suffix index.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(n)

花花酱 LeetCode 1481. Least Number of Unique Integers after K Removals

Given an array of integers arr and an integer k. Find the least number of unique integers after removing exactly k elements.

Example 1:

Input: arr = [5,5,4], k = 1
Output: 1
Explanation: Remove the single 4, only 5 is left.

Example 2:

Input: arr = [4,3,1,1,3,3,2], k = 3
Output: 2
Explanation: Remove 4, 2 and either one of the two 1s or three 3s. 1 and 3 will be left.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= arr.length <= 10^5
  • 1 <= arr[i] <= 10^9
  • 0 <= k <= arr.length

Solution: Greedy

Count the frequency of each unique number. Sort by frequency, remove items with lowest frequency first.

Time complexity: O(nlogn)
Space complexity: O(n)

花花酱 LeetCode 1461. Check If a String Contains All Binary Codes of Size K

Given a binary string s and an integer k.

Return True if any binary code of length k is a substring of s. Otherwise, return False.

Example 1:

Input: s = "00110110", k = 2
Output: true
Explanation: The binary codes of length 2 are "00", "01", "10" and "11". They can be all found as substrings at indicies 0, 1, 3 and 2 respectively.

Example 2:

Input: s = "00110", k = 2
Output: true

Example 3:

Input: s = "0110", k = 1
Output: true
Explanation: The binary codes of length 1 are "0" and "1", it is clear that both exist as a substring. 

Example 4:

Input: s = "0110", k = 2
Output: false
Explanation: The binary code "00" is of length 2 and doesn't exist in the array.

Example 5:

Input: s = "0000000001011100", k = 4
Output: false

Constraints:

  • 1 <= s.length <= 5 * 10^5
  • s consists of 0’s and 1’s only.
  • 1 <= k <= 20

Solution: Hashtable

Insert all possible substrings into a hashtable, the size of the hashtable should be 2^k.

Time complexity: O(n*k)
Space complexity: O(2^k*k) -> O(2^k)

花花酱 LeetCode 1452. People Whose List of Favorite Companies Is Not a Subset of Another List

Given the array favoriteCompanies where favoriteCompanies[i] is the list of favorites companies for the ith person (indexed from 0).

Return the indices of people whose list of favorite companies is not a subset of any other list of favorites companies. You must return the indices in increasing order.

Example 1:

Input: favoriteCompanies = [["leetcode","google","facebook"],["google","microsoft"],["google","facebook"],["google"],["amazon"]]
Output: [0,1,4] 
Explanation: 
Person with index=2 has favoriteCompanies[2]=["google","facebook"] which is a subset of favoriteCompanies[0]=["leetcode","google","facebook"] corresponding to the person with index 0. 
Person with index=3 has favoriteCompanies[3]=["google"] which is a subset of favoriteCompanies[0]=["leetcode","google","facebook"] and favoriteCompanies[1]=["google","microsoft"]. 
Other lists of favorite companies are not a subset of another list, therefore, the answer is [0,1,4].

Example 2:

Input: favoriteCompanies = [["leetcode","google","facebook"],["leetcode","amazon"],["facebook","google"]]
Output: [0,1] 
Explanation: In this case favoriteCompanies[2]=["facebook","google"] is a subset of favoriteCompanies[0]=["leetcode","google","facebook"], therefore, the answer is [0,1].

Example 3:

Input: favoriteCompanies = [["leetcode"],["google"],["facebook"],["amazon"]]
Output: [0,1,2,3]

Constraints:

  • 1 <= favoriteCompanies.length <= 100
  • 1 <= favoriteCompanies[i].length <= 500
  • 1 <= favoriteCompanies[i][j].length <= 20
  • All strings in favoriteCompanies[i] are distinct.
  • All lists of favorite companies are distinct, that is, If we sort alphabetically each list then favoriteCompanies[i] != favoriteCompanies[j].
  • All strings consist of lowercase English letters only.

Solution: Hashtable

Time complexity: O(n*n*m)
Space complexity: O(n*m)
where n is the # of people, m is the # of companies
