#5
  1. ASTRD : interesting 3D geometry problem with a simple but nice insight
  2. QUEHEA : seemed difficult at the first sight but got simpler after analyzing behavior of graph
  3. LCPMAX : nice variation of string hashing

#6
  1. AMAEXPER : Nice tree problem
  2. SHAIKHGN : Taught me optimization

#7

1.BGQRS : Taught me how segment tree works but I still struggle with this


#8

I will uptove ASTRD. And further throw in MGCHGEOM because I learned way too much while working on this and spent pretty much the entirety of 3 days on it. TULIPS was another one that took a long time but again taught me a lot.

I voted for the following 3 problems (for the following reasons):

  • CHNBGMT: I learnt a new lemma which was needed in order to solve this problem 100%.
  • CHEFPOL: It seemed hard when I first looked at it, but the code ended up being so short and easy to write.
  • BOUNCE: Hard number theory problem; even after having the right idea, I had to do lots of algorithmic and low-level optimizations to make my solution run in time (sadly there’s no editorial for it, yet).

PS: I already edited the question to assign votes to these problems.

#19

+1 for ASTRD :slight_smile:


#20

I am unable to locate the option to edit the post. A little help? :slight_smile:


#21

@pkacprzak, as far as I remember only the author or someone with more than 1.5/2k karma points only can edit the wiki post and for others, even the “Edit” button is not available


#22

@likecs and others, so maybe its better if I remove community wiki tag and keep the list updated by myself?


#23

@pkacprzak, maybe removing the wiki tag may be of no use. By the way, I may also help in maintaining this list as I can see the “Edit” button :slight_smile:


#24

@likecs ok, great, just be careful not to double-count votes :slight_smile:
