leetcode Ransom Note

leetcode Ransom Note

Given
 an 
arbitrary
 ransom
 note
 string 
and 
another 
string 
containing 
letters from
 all 
the 
magazines,
 write 
a 
function 
that 
will 
return 
true 
if 
the 
ransom 
 note 
can 
be 
constructed 
from 
the 
magazines ; 
otherwise, 
it 
will 
return 
false.

Each 
letter
 in
 the
 magazine 
string 
can
 only 
be
 used 
once
 in
 your 
ransom
 note.

Note:
You may assume that both strings contain only lowercase letters.

leetcode Linked List Random Node

leetcode Linked List Random Node

Given a singly linked list, return a random node’s value from the linked list. Each node must have the same probability of being chosen.

Follow up:
What if the linked list is extremely large and its length is unknown to you? Could you solve this efficiently without using extra space?

leetcode Insert Delete GetRandom O(1) – Duplicates allowed

leetcode Insert Delete GetRandom O(1) – Duplicates allowed

Design a data structure that supports all following operations in average O(1) time.

Note: Duplicate elements are allowed.

  1. insert(val): Inserts an item val to the collection.
  2. remove(val): Removes an item val from the collection if present.
  3. getRandom: Returns a random element from current collection of elements. The probability of each element being returned is linearly related to the number of same value the collection contains.

Example:

leetcode Insert Delete GetRandom O(1)

Design a data structure that supports all following operations in O(1) time.

  1. insert(val): Inserts an item val to the set if not already present.
  2. remove(val): Removes an item val from the set if present.
  3. getRandom: Returns a random element from current set of elements. Each element must have the same probability of being returned.

leetcode Kth Smallest Element in a Sorted Matrix

leetcode Kth Smallest Element in a Sorted Matrix

Given a n x n matrix where each of the rows and columns are sorted in ascending order, find the kth smallest element in the matrix.

Note that it is the kth smallest element in the sorted order, not the kth distinct element.

Example:

Note:
You may assume k is always valid, 1 ≤ k ≤ n2.

leetcode Wiggle Subsequence

leetcode Wiggle Subsequence

A sequence of numbers is called a wiggle sequence if the differences between successive numbers strictly alternate between positive and negative. The first difference (if one exists) may be either positive or negative. A sequence with fewer than two elements is trivially a wiggle sequence.

For example, [1,7,4,9,2,5] is a wiggle sequence because the differences (6,-3,5,-7,3) are alternately positive and negative. In contrast,[1,4,7,2,5] and [1,7,4,5,5] are not wiggle sequences, the first because its first two differences are positive and the second because its last difference is zero.

Given a sequence of integers, return the length of the longest subsequence that is a wiggle sequence. A subsequence is obtained by deleting some number of elements (eventually, also zero) from the original sequence, leaving the remaining elements in their original order.

Examples:

Can you do it in O(n) time?
