Hello! All Problem Hunters! :)

Not only me but also many problem setters will like to know which types of problems are liked by the contestants and what algorithms they do prefer for those types of problems.

So, let

Hi. I made my choise.
There are people who want to choose not only one answer. You had to mention it too.

Good luck!

My choice...

Post by Andrey Mokhov »

Hi, everyone!

In fact I voted for Number Thoery, but I really like difficult and non-trivial problems. Fortunately there are a lot of such problems in the problemset. To my mind the best were Optimus Prime,Three pigs,Serial-Parallel Networks,Matrix World and others... And of course all of the problems made by Rujia Liu are fantastic. They make me think hard but after AC they seem to be easy...

Why not to vote for the best problemsetter?

Best regards,
Andrey.

geometry is the by far worst for me. I have yet to get one single question correct! it is so hard to program and i always get some kind of error (sometimes even due to precision!)

problemsetters should make questions that everybody likes the least :D

Thanks everybody!

Bugz! That's why this thread for :) that problem setters should know which types of problems are popular among you peoples. :wink:

It's true Bugz that though we are attracted by the beauty of geometry but they cause much problem when solving in computers........."Finding Nemo, Toy Story, A Bugz (sorry bugs) life :wink: " and those

Andrey you can mention about the choice of your favorite problem setter but I think we should avoid contest among them :wink: and concentrate among us and enjoy.

And dear Farid, I am really sorry that I should have mentioned that!

But you can select "others" and mention yourself your choice in the following posts........! ( Yahoo mention your choice & hope Anu you have understood what to do ;) )

And we all know that there are many problems which are of composite type i.e. mixed with different strategy or algorithms and you can put only one choice here & I had nothing to do :-?

And you know if that were, then how many Cartesian product of the problem type sets possible!

So.......... :oops:

heh...I've just started to learn Dynamic Programming and really interested in it. It's fun!

--Hmm, I am just surprised to see

a) There is no option Dynamic Programming
b) Is sorting a class of problem? Generally it should go with trivial
c) Is encryption a class of problem?

Or recursion.. that seems to be missing as well.
Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.

dynamic programming.. i usually cant spot it.. maybe cuz its that i'm unsure of what it is..

Recursion is not, imho, a real kind of problem : you can use it in many of the fields evoked before : graph algorithms may be implemented recursively, some in number theory too, many in comabinatorics, etc. Recursion is not a kind in itself, it's a way to solve problems of other kind - who could also be, at less some of them, be solved iteratively.
