IOIPALIN - Palindrome 2000

A palindrome is a symmetrical string, that is, a string read identically from left to right as well as from right to left. You are to write a program which, given a string, determines the minimal number of characters to be inserted into the string in order to obtain a palindrome. As an example, by inserting 2 characters, the string "Ab3bd" can be transformed into a palindrome ("dAb3bAd" or "Adb3bdA"). However, inserting fewer than 2 characters does not produce a palindrome.


The first line contains one integer: the length of the input string N, 3≤N≤5000. The second line contains one string with length N. The string is formed from uppercase letters from ‘A’ to ‘Z’, lowercase letters from ‘a’ to ‘z’ and digits from ‘0’ to ‘9’. Uppercase and lowercase letters are to be considered distinct.


The first line contains one integer, which is the desired minimal number.

I don't know why using macros gives TLE :( Removed macros got AC :)

O(N*N) time and O(N*N) space accepted in 1 go

O(n^2) time complexity not passing

don't write anything extra and O(n*n) space complexity gives AC :)

Just use scanf printf without space optimization it also passes

who says time limit is strict ?
similar with lcs . O(n^2) dp is passing , but do take care of space complexity :)
easy one . :)
