Find if a crest is present in the index range [L, R] of the given array
  • Last Updated : 22 Mar, 2021

Given an array arr[] of N distinct elements and an index range [L, R]. The task is to find whether a crest is present in that index range in the array or not. Any element arr[i] in the subarray arr[L…R] is called a crest if all the elements of the subarray arr[L…i] are strictly increasing and all elements of the subarray arr[i…R] are strictly decreasing.
Examples: 
 

Input: arr[] = {2, 1, 3, 5, 12, 11, 7, 9}, L = 2, R = 6 
Output: Yes 
Element 12 is a crest in the subarray {3, 5, 12, 11, 7}.
Input: arr[] = {2, 1, 3, 5, 12, 11, 7, 9}, L = 0, R = 2 
Output: No 
 

 

Approach: 
 

  • Check whether in the given index range [L, R] there exists an element which satisfies the Property where arr[i – 1] ≥ arr[i] ≤ arr[i + 1].
  • If any element in the given range satisifes the above property then the given range cannot contain a crest otherwise the crest is always possible.
  • To find which element satisifes the above property, maintain an array present[] where present[i] will be 1 if arr[i – 1] ≥ arr[i] ≤ arr[i + 1] else present[i] will be 0.
  • Now convert the present[] array to its cumulative sum where present[i] will now represent number of elements in the index range [0, i] that satisfy the property.
  • For an index range [L, R] to contain a crest, present[L] must be equal to present[R – 1].

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function that returns true if the
// array contains a crest in
// the index range [L, R]
bool hasCrest(int arr[], int n, int L, int R)
{
    // To keep track of elements
    // which satisfy the Property
    int present[n] = { 0 };
 
    for (int i = 1; i <= n - 2; i++) {
 
        // Property is satisfied for
        // the current element
        if ((arr[i] <= arr[i + 1])
            && (arr[i] <= arr[i - 1])) {
            present[i] = 1;
        }
    }
 
    // Cumulative Sum
    for (int i = 1; i < n; i++) {
        present[i] += present[i - 1];
    }
 
    // If a crest is present in
    // the given index range
    if (present[L] == present[R - 1])
        return true;
 
    return false;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 2, 1, 3, 5, 12, 11, 7, 9 };
    int N = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    int L = 2;
    int R = 6;
 
    if (hasCrest(arr, N, L, R))
        cout << "Yes";
    else
        cout << "No";
 
    return 0;
}

{
    // To keep track of elements
    // which satisfy the Property
    int []present = new int[n];
    for(int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
        present[i] = 0;
    }
 
    for (int i = 1; i <= n - 2; i++)
    {
 
        // Property is satisfied for
        // the current element
