Given a matrix (or 2D array) a of integers, find prefix sum matrix for it. Let prefix sum matrix be psa. The value of psa[i][j] contains sum of all values which are above it or on left of it.
Prerequisite: Prefix Sum – 1D
A simple solution is to find psa[i][j] by traversing and adding values from a to a[i][j]. Time complexity o this solution is O(R * C * R * C).
An efficient solution is to use previously computed values to compute psa[i][j]. Unlike 1D array prefix sum, this is tricky, here if we simply add psa[i][j-1] and psa[i-1][j], we get sum of elements from a to a[i-1][j-1] twice, so we subtract psa[i-1][j-1].
psa = psa + psa - psa + a = 6 + 6 - 4 + 1 = 9 The general formula: psa[i][j] = psa[i-1][j] + psa[i][j-1] - psa[i-1][j-1] + a[i][j] Corner Cases (First row and first column) If i = 0 and j = 0 psa[i][j] = a[i][j] If i = 0 and j > 0 psa[i][j] = psa[i][j-1] + a[i][j] If i > 0 and j = 0 psa[i][j] = psa[i-1][j] + a[i][j]
