Recycling

How to recognize

While there is a wide range of recurring problems, many
similar recurring problems persist

patterns. A good indication that there is a recurring
problem seems to be built with sub-problems.

When you hear a problem that cracking the coding interview 6th edition pdf begins with the following,
often (but not always)

Once again, practice makes perfect! The more problems you
have, the easier it will be to identify you

recurring problems.

How to get closer

Recursive solutions, by definition, are solved from
subproblems. Many times this

it will simply mean to calculate f (n) by adding,
subtracting or otherwise

changing the solution to f (n-1). In other cases, you may
need to do something more competitive

creased. However, we recommend the following approach:

1. Think about what the subproblem is. How many subproblems
does f (n) depend on?

That is, in a recurring binary tree problem, each part is
likely to be based on two problems

slogans. In a linked list problem, there will probably only
be one.

2. Solutions for "lower case". That is, if you
need to calculate f (n), first calculate it for f (0) or

f (1). This is usually a hard-coded value.

3. Solutions for f (2).

the precise process to translate the solutions of the
subproblems into the actual solution.

5. Generalization for f (n).

"Bottom-up recycling" is often the simplest.
Sometimes, however, it can be

useful for tackling "top-down" problems, where you
just jump to a break

f (n) in its subproblems.

Things to keep in mind

1. All problems that can be solved recursively can be solved
in another way (however

the code can be much more complex). Before diving into
recursive code, ask

yourself how difficult it would be to implement this
algorithm otherwise. Discuss the

exchange with your interviewer.

2. Recursive algorithms can be very spatially efficient.
Each recurring call adds a new layer

for stacking, which means if your algorithm has recursive O
(n) calls, you use it

Memory O (n). Oh! Here's a reason an iterative algorithm
might be better.

orting and Searching

How to approach:

It is extremely valuable to understand common ranking
algorithms, as many are ranking or

Search solutions require adjustments to known classification
algorithms. Good focus when

you are given a question like this to run through the
various sorting algorithms and see if

one of them is very good.

Example: You have a very large set of 'Person' objects. Sort
the people in ascending order

years.

Here we are given two interesting facts: (1) It is a large
set, so the efficiency is very good

important. (2) We sort by ages, so we know that the values
are in a small range. You

scanning the various classification algorithms, we might
notice that the classification cube

Be a perfect candidate for this algorithm. In fact, we can
make the small cubes (only 1 year

one) and find O (n) the current time.

Bubble sort:

Start at the beginning of an array and swap the first two
elements if the first is greater than

the second. Go to the next pair etc, sweeping the array
continuously until sorted.

0 (n A 2).

Selection order:

Find the smallest item using a linear scan and move it
forward. So get the latest

it is smaller and smoother, doing a linear scan again.
Continue doing this until all elements

instead. 0 (n A 2).

Combine classification:

Order each pair of items. Then order the four items by
combining the two pairs. Then,

order the 8 elements, etc. 0 (n log n) worst and worst case
scenario.

Quick sort:

Select a random characteristic and divide the matrix so that
all the numbers are smaller than it.

They come in front of every element bigger than it. Then do
that for each half, then each quarry

ter, etc. 0 (n log n) expected, 0 (n A 2) in the worst case.

Bucket type:

Divide the matrix into a limited number of deposits and then
order each deposit individually.

This gives time 0 (n + m), where n is the number of elements
and m is the given number
