List the strings that are anagrams from a set of strings?

2 respuestas

Sorting the strings is not optimal because each sort is O(N log N) where N is the number of characters in each word. A more optimal solution is to create a function to encode each word as a hash table of character frequencies, which is O(N) for each word. Menos

sort the strings and compare


How would you design a recommendation system (like amazon)?

2 respuestas

Use collaborate filtering to compare personal preference with others. If A and B are similar, we can recommend preferred items in B to A. Menos

Implement a sampling function with nominal distribution.

2 respuestas

I think you mean Normal distribution! If you are using R use set.seed(). You can then use rnorm() with size, mean & SD. e.g. >set.seed(123) >rnorm(100, 2, 5) Menos

I'm the original poster, sorry for my typo. I actually mean multinomial distribution. And the advanced question was, if the probability is a skewed distribution, how would you speed up your algorithm. You can find both answer from Wikipedia. :) Menos
