We all have our weak sides, areas of knowledge that are way too far from an acceptable level. What is an acceptable level then, is all a matter of what you do and what’s the purpose of your knowledge. Changing job or project is going to greatly influence what will be your skill set in […]
Sometime you really want a book, but you cannot find the damn book anywhere! This is the case of Competitive Programming 3, which friends of mine referred to me many times, so I decide to give him a try. First place where normally I look for books is A., but no luck there. Then I […]
An entire post covering both the theoretical part and the implementation is going to take too long, for this reason I’m splitting the material in two parts: A post with some theory introduction, and one post which will be focused on implementation details. The algorithm I would like to show you is the Ukkonen method for […]
Sorry, this item can’t be shipped to your selected address.
Since I’m having some hard time in understanding the implementation of all the on-line algorithms for the construction of suffix-tree, I decided to move on buying some additional books which supposedly are going to cover more clearly those topics. Technical books are outrageously expensive, and when you think you’re able to save some money by […]

Ain’t I’m tired, I’m exhausted!
I wasn’t programming very much in the recent period, I’m still deep involved in my combinatorics book and in a couple of papers on the Ramsey Theory, additionality in the evening before I go to bed –or when I’m in the bed– I spent few time on my new book on text algorithms. Sometime I […]
Summary for the week.
This was a very long week! Most of my free time I was at the gym or on my combinatorics book learning fancy details about the pigeonhole principle, which is very simple but with large implications in problem solving. The pigeonhole principle basically say that if you want to put three pigeon in two holes, […]
