E - POJ1915 Knight Moves:

Mr Somurolov, fabulous chess-gamer indeed, asserts that no one else but him can move knights from one position to another so fast. Can you beat him?
The Problem
Your task is to write a program to calculate the minimum number of moves needed for a knight to reach one point from another, so that you have the chance to be faster than Somurolov.
For people not familiar with chess, the possible knight moves are shown in Figure 1.

INPUT:The input begins with the number n of scenarios on a single line by itself.
Next follow n scenarios. Each scenario consists of three lines containing integer numbers. The first line specifies the length l of a side of the chess board (4 <= l <= 300). The entire board has size l * l. The second and third line contain pair of integers {0, ..., l-1}*{0, ..., l-1} specifying the starting and ending position of the knight on the board. The integers are separated by a single blank. You can assume that the positions are valid positions on the chess board of that scenario.

OUTPUT:For each scenario of the input you have to calculate the minimal amount of knight moves which are necessary to move from the starting point to the ending point. If starting point and ending point are equal,distance is zero. The distance must be written on a single line.

F - dfs pruning (POJ1011 Sticks): George took sticks of the same length and cut them randomly until all parts become at most 50 units long Now he wants to return sticks to the original state, but he forgot how many sticks he had originally and how long they were originally. Please help him and design a program which computes the smallest possible original length of those sticks. All lengths expressed in units are integers greater than zero.

INPUT:The input contains blocks of 2 lines. The first line contains the number of sticks parts after cutting, there are at most 64 sticks. The second line contains the lengths of those parts separated by the space. The last line of the file contains zero.

The output should contains the smallest possible length of original sticks, one per line.

G - POJ2248 Addition Chain: an addition chain for n is an integer sequence < A0, A1, A2,..., am > with the following four properties:

          1.a0 = 1;
          2.am = n;
          3.a0 < a1 < a2 < ... < am-1 < am;
          4.For each k (1 <= k <= m) there exist two (not necessarily different) integers i and j (0 <= i, j <= k-1) with ak = ai + aj;
       You are given an integer n. Your job is to construct an addition chain for n with minimal length. If there is more than one such sequence, any one is acceptable.

       For example, <1, 2, 3, 5> and <1, 2, 4, 5> are both valid solutions when you are asked for an addition chain for 5.

INPUT:The input will contain one or more test cases. Each test case consists of one line containing one integer n (1 <= n <= 100). Input is terminated by a value of zero (0) for n.

OUTPUT:For each test case, print one line containing the required integer sequence. Separate the numbers by one blank.

H - half search (Luogu 4799 [CEOI2015 Day2] world hockey championship):

This year's world hockey championship was held in the Czech Republic. Bobek has arrived in Prague. He is not a fan of any team and has no sense of time. He just wants to watch a few games. If he had enough money, he would go to all the games. Unfortunately, his property was very limited. He decided to use all his property to buy tickets. Give Bobek's budget and the ticket price of each game. Try: if the total ticket price does not exceed the budget, how many viewing schemes does he have. If there is a game that is watched in one scheme and not in the other, the two schemes are considered to be different


In the first line, two positive integers ﹐ N ﹐ and ﹐ M(1 ≤ N ≤ 40,1 ≤ M ≤))(1≤N≤40,1≤M≤), indicating the number of matches and Bobek's worthless property.  

In the second line, N# positive integers separated by spaces, none of which exceed , representing the price of tickets for each game.

OUTPUT: OUTPUT a line indicating the number of schemes. Because N is very large, note: the answer is ≤

5 1000
100 1500 500 500 1000

The eight schemes are:

  • I didn't watch a game. I slipped away
  • The price is 100 yuan
  • The first game of 500 yuan
  • The second game with a price of , 500 ,
  • The game with a price of , 100 , and the first game with a price of , 500 ,
  • The game with a price of # 100 and the second game with a price of # 500
  • Two games with a price of 500 yuan
  • Competition with a price of , 1000 ,

Algorithm Tips:

1. Two way breadth first search:

For the case where the start state and the end state are given and the forward and inverse search can be realized, taking the start state and the end state as the starting point for BFs at the same time can reduce a considerable part of the search amount compared with one-way BFS, and has a good optimization effect compared with the case where there are more expansion nodes and the target node is deep.

Implementation: we add the starting point and the ending point into the queue for BFS at the same time. We mark the points expanded from the starting point and the ending point with different marks. When a point is about to be marked with the second mark, it indicates that the two-way search meets, and the sum of the steps can be output.

2. Pruning:

    (1). Search order optimization: different search orders will produce search trees of different sizes. When combining each equal length stick, give priority to the long one to start the search, which can reduce the amount of search status.

    (2). Number theory optimization: the length of the combined equal length wooden stick must be the divisor of the total length of all wooden sticks, so we can enumerate the divisor search and test.

    (3). Feasibility pruning: if the first one cannot be used, it must be a failure. The last one with equal length does not need to be searched, because it must be the total length.

    (4). Eliminate equivalent redundancy: record the place found last time. Don't start searching again from the first one. Ensure that the composition of each equal length wooden stick is searched from long to short. Avoid repeatedly searching for sticks of the same length.


3. Iterative search:

The biggest defect of DFS is that each search branch is too deep. When the answer is in a shallow position, it spends too much time in invalid search branches. Iterative deepening search first searches k layers in depth first. If no feasible solution is found, then search k+1 layers in depth first until a feasible solution is found. Since the depth increases gradually from small to large, it can ensure that the search depth is the smallest when the search results are found. The depth of DFS is essentially increased by means of enumeration

4. Half search:

Half search is applicable to the case where the input data is small, but not small enough to use violent search directly. The main idea is to divide the whole search process into two parts, search separately, and finally merge the results of the two parts. The complexity of violent search is often exponential. After using the halved search algorithm, the complexity index can be halved, that is, the complexity can be reduced from O()Down to O ( ).
