花花酱 LeetCode 1493. Longest Subarray of 1’s After Deleting One Element

Given a binary array nums, you should delete one element from it.

Return the size of the longest non-empty subarray containing only 1’s in the resulting array.

Return 0 if there is no such subarray.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [1,1,0,1]
Output: 3
Explanation: After deleting the number in position 2, [1,1,1] contains 3 numbers with value of 1's.

Example 2:

Input: nums = [0,1,1,1,0,1,1,0,1]
Output: 5
Explanation: After deleting the number in position 4, [0,1,1,1,1,1,0,1] longest subarray with value of 1's is [1,1,1,1,1].

Example 3:

Input: nums = [1,1,1]
Output: 2
Explanation: You must delete one element.

Example 4:

Input: nums = [1,1,0,0,1,1,1,0,1]
Output: 4

Example 5:

Input: nums = [0,0,0]
Output: 0

Constraints:

  • 1 <= nums.length <= 10^5
  • nums[i] is either 0 or 1.

Solution 1: DP

Preprocess:
l[i] := longest 1s from left side ends with nums[i], l[i] = nums[i] + nums[i] * l[i – 1]
r[i] := longest 1s from right side ends with nums[i], r[i] = nums[i] + nums[i] * r[i + 1]

Use each node as a bridge (ignored), the total number of consecutive 1s = l[i – 1] + r[i + 1].

ans = max{l[i-1] + r[i +1]}
Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(n)

C++

Solution 2: DP

dp[i][0] := longest subarray ends with nums[i] has no ones.
dp[i][0] := longest subarray ends with nums[i] has 1 one.
if nums[i] == 1:
dp[i][0] = dp[i – 1][0] + 1
dp[i][1] = dp[i – 1][1] + 1
if nums[i] == 0:
dp[i][0] = 0
dp[i][1] = dp[i – 1][0] + 1
Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(n) -> O(1)

C++

Solution 3: Sliding Window

Maintain a sliding window l ~ r s.t sum(num[l~r]) >= r – l. There can be at most one 0 in the window.
ans = max{r – l} for all valid windows.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)

花花酱 LeetCode 1477. Find Two Non-overlapping Sub-arrays Each With Target Sum

Given an array of integers arr and an integer target.

You have to find two non-overlapping sub-arrays of arr each with sum equal target. There can be multiple answers so you have to find an answer where the sum of the lengths of the two sub-arrays is minimum.

Return the minimum sum of the lengths of the two required sub-arrays, or return -1 if you cannot find such two sub-arrays.

Example 1:

Input: arr = [3,2,2,4,3], target = 3
Output: 2
Explanation: Only two sub-arrays have sum = 3 ([3] and [3]). The sum of their lengths is 2.

Example 2:

Input: arr = [7,3,4,7], target = 7
Output: 2
Explanation: Although we have three non-overlapping sub-arrays of sum = 7 ([7], [3,4] and [7]), but we will choose the first and third sub-arrays as the sum of their lengths is 2.

Example 3:

Input: arr = [4,3,2,6,2,3,4], target = 6
Output: -1
Explanation: We have only one sub-array of sum = 6.

Example 4:

Input: arr = [5,5,4,4,5], target = 3
Output: -1
Explanation: We cannot find a sub-array of sum = 3.

Example 5:

Input: arr = [3,1,1,1,5,1,2,1], target = 3
Output: 3
Explanation: Note that sub-arrays [1,2] and [2,1] cannot be an answer because they overlap.

Constraints:

  • 1 <= arr.length <= 10^5
  • 1 <= arr[i] <= 1000
  • 1 <= target <= 10^8

Solution: Sliding Window + Best so far

  1. Use a sliding window to maintain a subarray whose sum is <= target
  2. When the sum of the sliding window equals to target, we found a subarray [s, e]
  3. Update ans with it’s length + shortest subarray which ends before s.
  4. We can use an array to store the shortest subarray which ends before s.

Space complexity: O(n)

花花酱 LeetCode 1456. Maximum Number of Vowels in a Substring of Given Length

Given a string s and an integer k.

Return the maximum number of vowel letters in any substring of s with length k.

Vowel letters in English are (a, e, i, o, u).

Example 1:

Input: s = "abciiidef", k = 3
Output: 3
Explanation: The substring "iii" contains 3 vowel letters.

Example 2:

Input: s = "aeiou", k = 2
Output: 2
Explanation: Any substring of length 2 contains 2 vowels.

Example 3:

Input: s = "leetcode", k = 3
Output: 2
Explanation: "lee", "eet" and "ode" contain 2 vowels.

Example 4:

Input: s = "rhythms", k = 4
Output: 0
Explanation: We can see that s doesn't have any vowel letters.

Example 5:

Input: s = "tryhard", k = 4
Output: 1

Constraints:

  • 1 <= s.length <= 10^5
  • s consists of lowercase English letters.
  • 1 <= k <= s.length

Solution: Sliding Window

Keep tracking the number of vows in a window of size k.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)

花花酱 LeetCode 1425. Constrained Subset Sum

Given an integer array nums and an integer k, return the maximum sum of a non-empty subset of that array such that for every two consecutive integers in the subset, nums[i] and nums[j], where i < j, the condition j - i <= k is satisfied.

subset of an array is obtained by deleting some number of elements (can be zero) from the array, leaving the remaining elements in their original order.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [10,2,-10,5,20], k = 2
Output: 37
Explanation: The subset is [10, 2, 5, 20].

Example 2:

Input: nums = [-1,-2,-3], k = 1
Output: -1
Explanation: The subset must be non-empty, so we choose the largest number.

Example 3:

Input: nums = [10,-2,-10,-5,20], k = 2
Output: 23
Explanation: The subset is [10, -2, -5, 20].

Constraints:

  • 1 <= k <= nums.length <= 10^5
  • -10^4 <= nums[i] <= 10^4

Solution: DP / Sliding window / monotonic queue

dp[i] := max sum of a subset that include nums[i]
dp[i] := max(dp[i-1], dp[i-2], …, dp[i-k-1], 0) + nums[i]

C++

Use a monotonic queue to track the maximum of a sliding window dp[i-k-1] ~ dp[i-1].

花花酱 LeetCode 1423. Maximum Points You Can Obtain from Cards

There are several cards arranged in a row, and each card has an associated number of points The points are given in the integer array cardPoints.

In one step, you can take one card from the beginning or from the end of the row. You have to take exactly k cards.

Your score is the sum of the points of the cards you have taken.

Given the integer array cardPoints and the integer k, return the maximum score you can obtain.

Example 1:

Input: cardPoints = [1,2,3,4,5,6,1], k = 3
Output: 12
Explanation: After the first step, your score will always be 1. However, choosing the rightmost card first will maximize your total score. The optimal strategy is to take the three cards on the right, giving a final score of 1 + 6 + 5 = 12.

Example 2:

Input: cardPoints = [2,2,2], k = 2
Output: 4
Explanation: Regardless of which two cards you take, your score will always be 4.

Example 3:

Input: cardPoints = [9,7,7,9,7,7,9], k = 7
Output: 55
Explanation: You have to take all the cards. Your score is the sum of points of all cards.

Example 4:

Input: cardPoints = [1,1000,1], k = 1
Output: 1
Explanation: You cannot take the card in the middle. Your best score is 1. 

Example 5:

Input: cardPoints = [1,79,80,1,1,1,200,1], k = 3
Output: 202

Constraints:

  • 1 <= cardPoints.length <= 10^5
  • 1 <= cardPoints[i] <= 10^4
  • 1 <= k <= cardPoints.length

Solution: Sliding Window
