Point Update Range Sum

Contributor: Andrew Wang

Introduces Segment Tree, Binary Indexed Tree, and C++ Order Statistic Tree.

Focus Problem – read through this problem before continuing!

Most gold range query problems require you to support following tasks in O(logN)\mathcal{O}(\log N) time each on an array of size NN:

  • Update the element at a single position (point).
  • Query the sum of some consecutive subarray.

Both segment trees and binary indexed trees can accomplish this.

Segment Tree

Focus Problem – read through this problem before continuing!

A segment tree allows you to do point update and range query in O(logN)\mathcal{O}(\log N) time each for any associative operation, not just summation.

You can skip more advanced applications such as lazy propagation for now. They will be covered in platinum.

simple implementation

Benq

based off above

C++

Note that st.init(n+1) allows us to update and query indices in the range [0,n+1)=[0,n].

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
template<class T> struct Seg { // comb(ID,b) = b
const T ID = 1e18; T comb(T a, T b) { return min(a,b); }
int n; vector<T> seg;
void init(int _n) { n = _n; seg.assign(2*n,ID); }
void pull(int p) { seg[p] = comb(seg[2*p],seg[2*p+1]); }
void upd(int p, T val) { // set val at position p
seg[p += n] = val; for (p /= 2; p; p /= 2) pull(p); }

Java

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
public class DynamicRangeMinQueries {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Kattio io = new Kattio();
int n = io.nextInt();
int q = io.nextInt();
SegmentTree seg = new SegmentTree(n);

Solution - Dynamic Range Sum Queries

C++

Compared to the previous problem, all we need to change are T, ID, and comb.

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
template<class T> struct Seg { // comb(ID,b) = b
const T ID = 0; T comb(T a, T b) { return a+b; }
int n; vector<T> seg;
void init(int _n) { n = _n; seg.assign(2*n,ID); }
void pull(int p) { seg[p] = comb(seg[2*p],seg[2*p+1]); }
void upd(int p, T val) { // set val at position p
seg[p += n] = val; for (p /= 2; p; p /= 2) pull(p); }

Java

Compared to the previous problem, all we need to change is the way we aggregate values (change from Math.min() to summation) and the data type we use to store the query (int to long).

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
public class DynamicRangeSumQueries {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Kattio io = new Kattio();
int n = io.nextInt();
int q = io.nextInt();
SegmentTree seg = new SegmentTree(n);

Binary Indexed Tree

Implementation is shorter than segment tree, but maybe more confusing at first glance.

Solution - Dynamic Range Sum Queries (With a BIT)

C++

Solution 1

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
using ll = long long;
const int MX = 2e5+5;
int n, q;
vector<ll> bit(MX), x(MX);
void upd(int i, ll v) {

Solution 2

Writing a BIT this way has the advantage of generalizing to multiple dimensions.

/**
* Description: range sum queries and point updates for $D$ dimensions
* Source: https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/64914
* Verification: SPOJ matsum
* Usage: \texttt{BIT<int,10,10>} gives 2D BIT
* Time: O((\log N)^D)
*/
template <class T, int ...Ns> struct BIT {
T val = 0; void upd(T v) { val += v; }

Java

import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
public class DynamicRangeSumQueries {
static long[] bit;
static int n;
public static void main(String[] args) {
Kattio io = new Kattio();
n = io.nextInt();
int q = io.nextInt();

Finding kk-th Element

Suppose that we want a data structure that supports all the operations as a set in C++ in addition to the following:

  • order_of_key(x): counts the number of elements in the set that are strictly less than x.
  • find_by_order(k): similar to find, returns the iterator corresponding to the k-th lowest element in the set (0-indexed).

Order Statistic Tree

Luckily, such a built-in data structure already exists in C++.

code

To use indexed set locally, you need to install GCC.

With a BIT

Assumes all updates are in the range [1,N][1,N].

Coordinate Compression

If the coordinates are large (say, up to 10910^9), then you should apply coordinate compression before using a BIT or segment tree (though sparse segment trees do exist).
