Checking if a graph is bipartite is basically checking if a graph can be 2-colored. This can be done with DFS in linear time. I'm not really sure what your second problem is, but it sounds like the Maximum Cut problem which is NP-hard. A simple 2-approximation heuristic is simply to assign nodes in ...

[ Edit ] Original Algorithm was incorrect. This is a shortest path problem. Basically you want to find the shortest path from yourself to yourself. The only trick is the requirement that you must travel 360 deg around the world. I assume that angle 0 is the starting position (you can adjust all angl...

Still can't get AC on it. Can I have an AC's solution output for: 21 3 4 5 10 1 3 4 5 10 -1 3 4 5 -5 1 0 5 5 6 1 1 4 2 5 5 1 4 2 6 5 1 4 2 4 5 4 4 4 3 3 4 4 4 5 5 4 4 4 6 4 -1 -1 0.01 0 0 5 5 5 0 0 5 0 5 0 0 3 4 5 6 8 3 4 5 6 9 3 4 5 7 8 10 10 14.13 20 20 10 10 14.13 0.1 0.1 10 10 14.13 60 60 10 10 ...

(1) Assuming no negative cycle, the following inequality ALWAYS holds: d(s,v) <= d(s,u) + c(u,v) --- (1) for all u,v where s is the starting vertex, d(s,u) and d(s,v) minimum distances to vertices u and v and c(u,v) the cost of the edge between u and v. Rearranging gives c(u,v) + d(s,u) - d(s,v) >= ...

The min(m,n-p) bound comes from the fact that there are most min(m,n-p) dominant matches per contour. Unfortunately, most papers I have found don't mention how to get min(m,n-p) time per contour - they just state it as fact. (Getting O(m) is really easy, though). And I don't know where you can find ...

And over a year later... I assume below that all circles have 3 points on the boundary, thus ignoring > 3 points and the case where there are 2 points on the minimal circle's boundary (in this case the 2 points are on the diameter). To find minimal R, O(n^3) is hard to beat. Simply take all possible...

Read up on de bruijn sequences. The simple way to think about it as an Eulerian circuit is for an n-bit number, think of all 2^(n-1) bit numbers as nodes and each node has two edges to represent the next bit - 0 and 1. So, for example, for n = 3, we have four nodes: 00 01 10 11 00 has edge 0 to itse...

So you have n colors? Since the maximum degree of a vertex is n-1, this is always possible. (Actually, if you have n vertices, you can just color all of them a different color). If you're asking about the case where n is just the number of colors, and not the number of vertices in the graph, the pro...
