LKS - Large Knapsack

The knapsack problem or rucksack problem is a problem in combinatorial optimization: Given a set of items, each with a weight and a value, determine the number of each item to include in a collection so that the total weight is less than or equal to a given limit and the total value is as large as possible. It derives its name from the problem faced by someone who is constrained by a fixed-size knapsack and must fill it with the most valuable items.

Just implement 0/1 Knapsack.


First line contains two integers K and N, where K in the maximum knapsack size and N is the number of items. N lines follow where ith line describes ith item in the form vi and wi where vi is the value and wi is the weight of ith item.


Output a single number - maximum value of knapsack. (All operations and the answer are guaranteed to fit in signed 32-bit integer.)

Time limit changed to 2s on 02.07.11.


10 3
7 3
8 8
4 6



K <= 2000000
N <= 500
Vi <= 10^7
Wi <= 10^7

use the optimized knapsack
int will work fine.

How are people getting 0.00 seconds on this one . My space optimised 0-1 knapsack dp of order O(nW) took 1 second even in C.

unbelievable turned long long to int got ac??

normal knapsack...N*K time complexity...i think input file doesn't contain k = 2000000 and if so then n*k = 1e9...-> tle

Space optimized java solution gives tle. Same code accepted in cpp.

I thought it need some complicated optimization, but it turns out not.

need some pretty good space optimisations.
