leetcode N-Queens/N-Queens II, backtracking, hdu 2553 count N-Queens, dfs

  1. for the backtracking part, thanks to the video of stanford cs106b lecture 10 by Julie Zelenski for the nice explanation of recursion and backtracking, highly recommended.

  2. in hdu 2553 cout N-Queens solutions problem, dfs is used.
    // please ignore, below analysis is inaccurate, though for inspiration considerations, I decided to let it remain.
    and we use a extra occupied[] array to opimize the validation test, early termination when occupied[i]==1, and in function isSafe the test change from 3 to 2 comparisons.
    for the improvement, here is an analysis:
    noted that total call of dfs for n is less than factorial(n), for convenience we take as factorial(n),
    in this appoach, in pow(n,n)-factorial(n) cases, we conduct one comparison, and three for others
    otherwise, for all pow(n,n) cases, we must conduct three comparisons,
    blow is a list for n from 1 to 10,

   n        n!           n^n   n!/n^n
   1        1             1   1.00000
   2        2             4   0.50000
   3        6            27   0.22222
   4       24           256   0.09375
   5      120          3125   0.03840
   6      720         46656   0.01543
   7     5040        823543   0.00612
   8    40320      16777216   0.00240
   9   362880     387420489   0.00094
  10  3628800   10000000000   0.00036

the table shows that, for almost all of the cases of large n (n>=4), we reduce 3 to 1 comparison in doing validation check.

occupied[i] is initilized to 0, before dfs, mark.

occupied[val]=1;

after dfs, unmark,

occupied[val]=0;

where val is the value chosen.
