GSS1 - Can you answer these queries I

You are given a sequence A[1], A[2], ..., A[N] . ( |A[i]| ≤ 15007 , 1 ≤ N ≤ 50000 ). A query is defined as follows:
Query(x,y) = Max { a[i]+a[i+1]+...+a[j] ; x ≤ i ≤ j ≤ y }.
Given M queries, your program must output the results of these queries.


  • The first line of the input file contains the integer N.
  • In the second line, N numbers follow.
  • The third line contains the integer M.
  • M lines follow, where line i contains 2 numbers xi and yi.


    Your program should output the results of the M queries, one query per line.

Can't this be solved using maximum subarray algorithm from CLRS?

The time limit is per test case and it is very tight, so you don't want to use an buffered output otherwise you'll get a TLE.

stupendous problem!!

Be careful! You don't have to find the max element in the range . You have to find maximum subvector sum in the range . i . e if array is {1,2,-4,1}......answer should be 3 because 1+2>than all combinations added together linearly .

I am suffering in judge 9. Getting WA. I am using ST concept and I am confident with my logic.
Please someone help me. Give me some really tough test cases.
Thank you

Edit:: Finally done.. Was missing a case.. 10 WA cause of that stupid case:(

Very Good Question! My second segment tree problem :D

Finally Ac after too many wa and sigsev ...had to comment ! worth trying...learnt a lot...used seg tree !! :)

Time is limited so never use "cin" and "cout"

No need to use lazy propagation, no need to use long long int.
Great problem.
