164. Maximum Gap


Given an unsorted array, find the maximum difference between the successive elements in its sorted form.

Return 0 if the array contains less than 2 elements.

Example 1:

Input: [3,6,9,1]
Output: 3
Explanation: The sorted form of the array is [1,3,6,9], either
             (3,6) or (6,9) has the maximum difference 3.

Example 2:

Input: [10]
Output: 0
Explanation: The array contains less than 2 elements, therefore return 0.


  • You may assume all elements in the array are non-negative integers and fit in the 32-bit signed integer range.
  • Try to solve it in linear time/space.


在数组中找到 2 个数字之间最大的间隔。要求尽量用 O(1) 的时间复杂度和空间复杂度。


虽然使用排序算法可以 AC 这道题。先排序,然后依次计算数组中两两数字之间的间隔,找到最大的一个间隔输出即可。
