### dp

yes, it's DP

time complexity is about o(k * n^2)

Hint :

think when there is no rule that :
You can step on at most k negative integers from source to destination.

then you'll get DP algorithm,

it will be not difficult.

Are you sure about o(k * n^2) ?

My algo takes o(k * n^3). And work fast enough.
My time complexity is O(kn^2), too. And the memory complexity is O(kn).

Thx, I optimized my algo. Now it's O(k * n^2) too.

However running time didn't improved much.

It would have been more significiant if n would be much bigger than 75.

Can someone post some example cases? Thanks!

I'm lazy to generate any inputs , but if you post some here I can generate the correct answers for you.

hi,
i cannot make a way to use DP in this problem. if you anyone describe how to implement DP here, i will be greatly helped. btw, can this problem be solved within time limit using dfs?

I used following DP-algorithm:
In cell t[i,j,g] save the maximum sum of integers of the path to cell(i,j), g is a count negative integer in the sum.
1.) As we start at cell (1,1), in all cells of first row we can arrive from left only. So, t[1,i,g] = t[1,i-1,g]+m[1,i] if m[1,i] >= 0 else t[1,i,g+1] = t[1,i-1,g]+m[1,i].
2.) Then for all row from 2 to n do:
- move down from row (i-1) to row i
if m[i,j] >= 0 then t[i,j,g] = t[i-1,j,g]+m[i,j]
else t[i,j,g] = t[i-1,j,g-1]+m[i,j]
- buf1[j,g] = buf2[j,g] = t[i,j,g]
- move from cell(i,1) to cell (i,n) try to maximize the result in buf1:
if (m[i,j] >= 0) then buf1[j,g] = max(buf1[j,g],buf1[j-1,g]+m[i,j]) else buf1[j,g] = max(buf1[j,g],buf1[j-1,g-1]+m[i,j])
- also move from cell(i,n) to cell (1,n) correct buf2
- t[i,j,g] = max(t[i,j,g],buf1[j,g],buf2[j,g]);
3.) the maximum sum of integers of the path is max(t[n,n,g]) where 0<=g<=k.

my outputs :

Case 1: 1
Case 2: impossible
Case 3: -1
Case 4: 9
Case 5: 13
Case 6: 14
Case 7: -5
Case 8: impossible
Case 9: 280

but Same result, WA.
do u use "long long" data type ? i also use this type.

pls send more data
