Weighted Interval Scheduling Problem

Given a list of jobs where each job has a start and finish time, and also has profit associated with it, find maximum profit subset of non-overlapping jobs.

Box Stacking Problem

Given a set of rectangular 3D boxes, create a stack of boxes which is as tall as possible. A box can be placed on top of another box if the dimensions of the 2D base of the lower box are each strictly larger than those of the 2D base of the higher box. Multiple instances …

Implement a Queue using Stack Data Structure

In this post, we will see how to implement a queue using stack data structure in C++ and Java. In other words, design a queue that supports enqueue and dequeue operations using standard push and pop operations of the stack.

Determine negative-weight cycle in a graph

Given a directed weighted graph, report a negative-weight cycle in the graph if any. A negative-weight cycle is a cycle in graph whose edges sum to a negative value.

Unbounded Binary Search

Given a monotonically increasing function f(x), find the value of x where f(x) becomes positive for the first time. In other words, find a positive integer x such that f(x-1), f(x-2),… are negative and f(x+1), f(x+2),… are positive.
