Competitive Programming Library

1. Rationale

During my Competitive Programming's journey, I spent a good time exploring novel approaches on many interesting problems. This lead me to learn many new algorithms and data structures, and even incorporate my knowledge from different fields (Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra...) to solve many hard problems. So I decided to write them in this repository.

I chose to write that acquired knowledge on this repository so that I can share my wonderful journey with any interested person.

2. Content

This repository contains a list of non-trivial algorithms & data structures that I have used at least once in competitive programming settings. It is written with emphasis on readability, zero-overhead, and also correctness and mathematical rigour.

The following list of topics are present on this library:

  1. Data Structures:
    • Segment Tree over an associative binary operation
    • Fenwick Tree over a group
    • Sparse Table over an assoviative idempotent binary operation
    • Order Statistic Tree
    • Statistic Trees with Statistic acting on keys and/or values (over an associative binary operation)
  2. String (To Be Completed):
    • Rabin-Karp probabilistic string matching algorithm.
    • ...
  3. Graph (To Be Done)
  4. Abstract Algebra:
    • Generic definition of usual binary operations
    • Fast Exponentiation over a monoid
    • Extended Euclidean Algorithm, and Bezout Coefficient over an integral domain

The following list of topics was not intended for CP, but I chose to include it as a demonstration to the power of this library:

  1. Analysis:
    • First terms of over a suitable commutative ring
    • over a Banach algebra $\mathcal{A}$

    • pointwise binary operators
    • foreach over iterables
    • pointwise reduce: reduce all elements under an associative binary operator
    • pointwise aggregate: transform each element of a matrix/vector to a given element, and reduce the resulting matrix/vector under an associative operator

    • Guaranteed to have performance, even for large values of .

4. Remarks

This is only a tiny subset of the computer science & mathematical litterature, so I recommend you to frequently read and discover new topics.
