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.

NEEDS Space Optimisation..!!

cin/cout; string; 0.17-0.19s AC

Quit blaming the frameworks and optimize your implementation!

Too strict Time limit..

Too strict time limit.
Same optimized code in java didn't get ac which in c++ did. :(

space O(N^2) gets accepted with fast I/P in C++..

Too strict time constraints :/ long long int : TLE, int : AC
Also space optimization required

Top Down Memoization AC

String : TLE
Char array : AC!

Almost the same problem as AIBOHP.
