DMOJ - Phidas

Authors: Jesse Choe, Sofia Yang

Let dp[i][j]\texttt{dp}[i][j] be the minimum total wasted area with a rectangular slab size of i×ji\times j. Initialize dp[i][j]\texttt{dp}[i][j] as iji \cdot j and set dp[xi][yi]\texttt{dp}[x_i][y_i] as 0, where xi,yix_i, y_i are the width and heights of the desired plate sizes, respectively. Check every sub-rectangle with either ii or jj fixed (but not both) and store the minimum total area that must be wasted for the optimal sub-rectangle.

Time Complexity: O(WH(W+H))\mathcal{O}(W\cdot H\cdot (W + H)).
