ANARC05B - The Double HeLiX


Two finite, strictly increasing, integer sequences are given. Any common integer between the two sequences constitute an intersection point. Take for example the following two sequences where intersection points are
printed in bold:

  • First= 3 5 7 9 20 25 30 40 55 56 57 60 62
  • Second= 1 4 7 11 14 25 44 47 55 57 100

You can ‘walk” over these two sequences in the following way:

  1. You may start at the beginning of any of the two sequences. Now start moving forward.
  2. At each intersection point, you have the choice of either continuing with the same sequence you’re currently on, or switching to the other sequence.

The objective is finding a path that produces the maximum sum of data you walked over. In the above example, the largest possible sum is 450, which is the result of adding 3, 5, 7, 9, 20, 25, 44, 47, 55, 56, 57, 60, and 62

Input

Your program will be tested on a number of test cases. Each test case will be specified on two separate lines. Each line denotes a sequence and is specified using the following format:

n v1 v2 ... vn

Where n is the length of the sequence and vi is the ith element in that sequence. Each sequence will have at least one element but no more than 10,000. All elements are between -10,000 and 10,000 (inclusive).
The last line of the input includes a single zero, which is not part of the test cases.

Output

For each test case, write on a separate line, the largest possible sum that can be produced.

Sample

Input:
13 3 5 7 9 20 25 30 40 55 56 57 60 62
11 1 4 7 11 14 25 44 47 55 57 100
4 -5 100 1000 1005
3 -12 1000 1001
0

Output:
450
2100

While switching to another array make sure to get the index of that common element in the 2nd array...if you are using dp+binary search

O(N*log(N)) Using DP (Top Down) + lower_bound (Binary Search), but it takes a long time to think

mega4411: 2020-08-27 07:44:17

don't think about dp or binary search

rehank478: 2020-08-05 07:01:18

I think it's greedy problem.

Made a mistake you can have not intersection points as well.

coolboy7: 2020-07-12 18:03:24

solving it with dp and binary will simply make an easy problem complex

rum3r: 2020-05-28 11:30:44

Don't waste your time on this problem.. It's not even DP :(

amar_shukla1: 2020-05-16 19:07:44

just do prefix array method

shekhar_12345: 2020-05-05 22:48:23

o(n) no binary search no dp

take care of testcases
