LeetCode 154 - Find Minimum in Rotated Sorted Array II


Related - LeetCode 153 - Find the minimum element in a sorted and rotated array
https://leetcode.com/problems/find-minimum-in-rotated-sorted-array-ii/
Follow up for "Find Minimum in Rotated Sorted Array":
What if duplicates are allowed?
Would this affect the run-time complexity? How and why?
Suppose a sorted array is rotated at some pivot unknown to you beforehand.
(i.e., 0 1 2 4 5 6 7 might become 4 5 6 7 0 1 2).
Find the minimum element.
The array may contain duplicates.

    public int findMin(int[] nums) {
        int low = 0, high = nums.length - 1;
        
        while (low < high) {
            // mid == low if high - low < 2
            int mid = low + (high - low) / 2;
            
            // We can NOT compare mid with low because
            // it is possible mid == low and we can not
            // distinguish cases 1) mid == low or 2) nums[mid] == nums[low].
            // However, mid != high is always true.
            if (nums[mid] == nums[high]) high--; 
            else if (nums[mid] < nums[high]) high = mid; // nums[mid..high] is sorted
            else low = mid + 1;
        }
        
        return nums[low];
    }

这道题和上一道题的区别是,数组中可能有相同的数。那么,分下列几种情况:
    def findMin(self, num):
        L = 0; R = len(num)-1
        while L < R and num[L] >= num[R]:
            M = (L+R)/2
            if num[M] > num[L]:
                L = M + 1
            elif num[M] < num[R]:
                R = M
            else:
                L += 1
        return num[L]

This is a follow-up problem of finding minimum element in rotated sorted array without duplicate elements. We only need to add one more condition, which checks if the left-most element and the right-most element are equal. If they are we can simply drop one of them. In my solution below, I drop the left element whenever the left-most equals to the right-most.
public int findMin(int[] num) {
    return findMin(num, 0, num.length-1);
}
 
public int findMin(int[] num, int left, int right){
    if(right==left){
        return num[left];
    }
    if(right == left +1){
        return Math.min(num[left], num[right]);
    }
    // 3 3 1 3 3 3
 
    int middle = (right-left)/2 + left;
    // already sorted
    if(num[right] > num[left]){
        return num[left];
    //right shift one
    }else if(num[right] == num[left]){
        return findMin(num, left+1, right);
    //go right    
    }else if(num[middle] >= num[left]){
        return findMin(num, middle, right);
    //go left    
    }else{
        return findMin(num, left, middle);
    }
}
It is O(n) in the worst case. Run a time complexity analysis of your code for an array with the same element repeated.
In fact it can be proved that worst case complexity cannot be better than O(n). Simply consider the case of an array with all indices set to 1 except for one which is set to 0. Now, this 0 could be anywhere in the array, and you can't possibly know where it is without looking at each possible index.

http://www.jiuzhang.com/solutions/find-minimum-in-rotated-sorted-array-ii/
    public int findMin(int[] num) {
        int min = num[0];
        for (int i = 1; i < num.length; i++) {
            if (num[i] < min)
                min = num[i];
        }
        return min;
    }
在面试中这种问题还是比较常见的,现在的趋势是面试官倾向于从一个问题出发,然后follow up问一些扩展的问题,而且这个题目涉及到了复杂度的改变,所以面试中确实是一个好题,自然也更有可能出现哈。
