# Submatrix of given size with maximum 1’s

Given a binary matrix mat[][] and an integer K, the task is to find the submatrix of size K*K such that it contains maximum number of 1’s in the matrix.

Examples:

Input: mat[][] = {{1, 0, 1}, {1, 1, 0}, {1, 0, 0}}, K = 2
Output: 3
Explanation:
In the given matrix, there are 4 sub-matrix of order 2*2,
|1 0| |0 1| |1 1| |1 0|
|1 1|, |1 0|, |1 0|, |0 0|
Out of these sub-matrix, two matrix contains 3, 1’s.

Input: mat[][] = {{1, 0}, {0, 1}}, K = 1
Output: 1
Explanation:
In the given matrix, there are 4 sub-matrix of order 1*1,
|1|, |0|, |1|, |0|
Out of these sub-matrix, two matrix contains 1, 1’s.

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: The idea is to use the sliding window technique to solve this problem, In this technique, we generally compute the value of one window and then slide the window one-by-one to compute the solution for every window of size K.

To compute the maximum 1’s submatrix, count the number of 1’s in the row for every possible window of size K using the sliding window technique and store the counts of the 1’s in the form of a matrix.
For Example:

```Let the matrix be {{1,0,1}, {1, 1, 0}} and K = 2

For Row 1 -
Subarray 1: (1, 0), Count of 1 = 1
Subarray 2: (0, 1), Count of 1 = 1

For Row 2 -
Subarray 1: (1, 1), Count of 1 = 2
Subarray 2: (1, 0), Count of 1 = 1

Then the final matrix for count of 1's will be -
[ 1, 1 ]
[ 2, 1 ]
```

Similarly, apply the sliding window technique on every column on this matrix, to compute the count of 1’s in every possible sub-matrix and take the maximum out of those counts.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Performance Analysis:

• Time Complexity: As in the above approach, there are two loops which takes O(N*M) time, Hence the Time Complexity will be O(N*M).
• Space Complexity: As in the above approach, there is extra space used, Hence the space complexity will be O(N). My Personal Notes arrow_drop_up Check out this Author's contributed articles.
