Maximum Length Snake Sequence

Given a square matrix, print maximum length snake sequence in it. A Snake sequence is defined as a sequence of numbers where each new number, which can only be located to the right or down of the current number, is either plus or minus one.

Longest Decreasing Subsequence Problem

The longest decreasing subsequence problem is to find a subsequence of a given sequence in which the subsequence’s elements are in sorted order, highest to lowest, and in which the subsequence is as long as possible.

Implement Diff Utility

Implement your own diff utility. i.e given two similar strings, efficiently list out all differences between them.  

Longest Common Subsequence of K-sequences

The longest common subsequence (LCS) problem is the problem of finding the longest subsequence that is present in given two sequences in the same order. i.e. find a longest sequence which can be obtained from the first original sequence by deleting some items, and from the second original sequence by deleting other items.

Wildcard Pattern Matching

Given a string and a pattern containing wildcard characters i.e. ‘*’ and ‘?’, where ‘?’ can match to any single character in input string and ‘*’ can match to any number of characters including zero characters, design an efficient algorithm to find if the pattern matches with the complete input string or not.  

Word Break Problem

Given a string and a dictionary of words, determine if string can be segmented into a space-separated sequence of one or more dictionary words.
