The longest Increasing Subsequence (LIS) problem is to find the length of the longest subsequence of a given sequence such that all elements of the subsequence are sorted in increasing order.

Examples:

Input:[10, 22, 9, 33, 21, 50, 41, 60, 80]Output:[10, 22, 33, 50, 60, 80] OR [10 22 33 41 60 80] or any other LIS of same length.

In previous post, we have discussed about Longest Increasing Subsequence problem. However, the post only covered code related to querying size of LIS, but not the construction of LIS. In this post, we will discuss how to print LIS using similar DP solution discussed earlier.

Let arr[0..n-1] be the input array. We define vector L such that L[i] is itself is a vector that stores LIS of arr that ends with arr[i]. For example, for array [3, 2, 6, 4, 5, 1],

L[0]: 3 L[1]: 2 L[2]: 2 6 L[3]: 2 4 L[4]: 2 4 5 L[5]: 1

Therefore for an index i, L[i] can be recursively written as –

L[0] = {arr[O]} L[i] = {Max(L[j])} + arr[i] where j < i and arr[j] < arr[i] and if there is no such j then L[i] = arr[i]

Below is C++ implementation of above idea –

Output:

Note that the time complexity of the above Dynamic Programming (DP) solution is O(n^2) and there is a O(n Log n) non-DP solution for the LIS problem. See below post for O(n Log n) solution.
