# Detailed explanation of monotonicity of decision-making

Necessary and sufficient conditions for monotonicity of decision making

For two decision points, if at I, the large decision point is better than the small decision point, then at [i+1,n], the large decision point is better than the small decision point

When proving, there is no need for mathematical proof, and it is enough to prove that the cost array is "convex" by typing a table
J < j + 1 < = I < I + 1 prove cost array

# 1D dynamic programming optimization Preliminary optimization of 1D/1D dynamic programming
The so-called 1D/1D dynamic programming refers to the dynamic programming equation with the number of states O(n) and the decision quantity of each state O(n).
The time complexity of direct solution is O(n2), but most of these equations can be solved through reasonable organization and optimization
To optimize the time complexity of O(nlogn) and even O(n). Here I want to talk about some of the more preliminary classic
Understanding of optimization methods.
In this paper, we don't want to prove and deduce too much. We mainly want to explain the establishment, transformation and solution methods of classical models.
Due to my limited knowledge and level, if there are any mistakes and omissions, please make more corrections. In addition, also
I hope Daniel will introduce more in-depth things about dynamic programming optimization to us.
In this paper, two ways are used to represent a function: f(x) and f[x]. The function value expressed in square brackets can be before planning
All are calculated (constants), and the function values expressed in parentheses must be calculated (variables) in the planning process. Whatever it is
Once the function value is determined, it will not be changed in future calculations.

We always think along the idea of "what is the optimal decision of f(x)". Let's change another angle,
For a calculated state f(j), "what states can be updated by f(j)". In this way, every step of the process
Some state decisions may not be optimal, but when the algorithm ends, the decisions corresponding to all States must be optimal
of
At first, only the function value of f(1) is calculated, so the current optimal decision of all States is 1.
111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111
Now, obviously, the value of f(2) has been determined: its most promising decision can only be 1. We update this decision with decision 2
Watch. Due to the monotony of decision-making, we know that the new decision table can only have this form:

111111111111111111111111111111222222222222222222222222222222
This means that we can use dichotomy to find the "turning point", because if at a point x, if decision 2 is more important
Good, then all States larger than x are better than decision 2; If decision 1 is better on x, then all States smaller than x are
Decision 1 is better.
Now that both decision 1 and decision 2 have been updated, f(3) has been determined. Now use decision 3 to update all States.
According to the monotonicity of decision-making, the current decision table can only have the following two types:
11111111111111111111111111111111122222222222222222233333333333
1111111111111111111111111333333333333333333333333333333333333
Such a decision means that it will never happen:
111111111333333333333333333322222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222.
Then, our update algorithm is:
1. Check whether decision 3 is better at point B of the interval [b,e] of decision 2. If so, discard all decision 2 and replace it
Interval allocation decision 3; If not, find the turning point in the interval [b,e] of decision 2.
2. If the answer to question 1 is "yes", examine decision 1 in the same way.
At this stage, I believe that the implementation algorithm of decision monotonicity has been clear: using a stack to maintain data accounts for
Each element holds the starting and ending positions of a decision. Obviously, these positions are connected and incremented in turn. When inserting
When entering a new decision, scan the stack from back to front. For each old decision, do two things:
1. If the new decision is better at the starting point of the old decision, withdraw from the stack, abandon the old decision in full, and merge its interval into
In the new decision, continue to scan the next decision.
2. If the old decision-making is the starting point, the old decision-making must be at the old turning point; Binary search
Then the new decision goes into the stack and ends.
Since a decision will not enter after it is out of the stack, the sharing time is O(1), but due to the existence of binary search,
Therefore, the time complexity of the whole algorithm is O(nlogn).
