## 1 Problem 81

Find the minimal path sum from the top left to the bottom right by moving right and down.

Solution:

import Data.List (unfoldr) columns s = unfoldr f s where f [] = Nothing f xs = Just $ (\(a,b) -> (read a, drop 1 b)) $ break (==',') xs firstLine ls = scanl1 (+) ls nextLine pl [] = pl nextLine pl (n:nl) = nextLine p' nl where p' = nextCell (head pl) pl n nextCell _ [] [] = [] nextCell pc (p:pl) (n:nl) = pc' : nextCell pc' pl nl where pc' = n + min p pc minSum (p:nl) = last $ nextLine p' nl where p' = firstLine p problem_81 c = minSum $ map columns $ lines c main=do f<-readFile "matrix.txt" print$problem_81 f

Another solution that uses Data.Array:

import Data.Array problem_81 :: String -> Integer problem_81 txt = b ! (0, 0) where a = listArray ((0,0), (79,79)) . concatMap read . map (\xs -> '[' : xs ++ "]") . lines $ txt b = array ((0,0), (80,80)) $ [((80, i), 0) | i <- [0..80]] ++ [((i, 80), 0) | i <- [0..80]] ++ [((79, i), a ! (79, i) + b ! (79, i+1)) | i <- [79,78..0]] ++ [((i, 79), a ! (i, 79) + b ! (i+1, 79)) | i <- [79,78..0]] ++ [((i, j), a ! (i,j) + min (b ! (i+1, j)) (b ! (i, j+1))) | i <- [78,77..0], j <- [78,77..0]] main :: IO () main = do txt <- readFile "matrix.txt" print $ problem_81 txt

I am offering this solution not because it is particularly brilliant, but because it introduces the wonderful fgl Graph Library written by Martin Erwig. Martin's Data.Graph.Inductive library allows you to solve problems 81,82, and 83 with exactly the same code, and best of all, little or no thinking. The idea is to convert the n by n matrix into an n^2 by n^2 graph whose edges depend on the allowed paths. Fortunately these graphs are very sparse, averaging only 4 edges per node. This allows us to use the Dijkstra algorithm to find the shortest path in a graph.

The only slightly dodgy bit is problem 82, where we must find the shortest path from the first column to the last column. In order to avoid recomputing the Dijkstra algorithm over and over again, you have to be a little careful in the order of evaluation. I used spTree function from Data.Graph.Inductive.Query.SP which generated the shortest path tree from a given initial node to all other nodes. I then map over this tree with the nodes of the graph that are in the last column. The tree only needs to be calculated once for each element in the first column, rather than for every pair (i,j). This reduces the running time by a factor of n. Henry Laxen -- Apr. 27, 2008

Note that problem 82 may also be solved using a straightforward Dijkstra by adding an initial node A connected to all the nodes in the first column, and a final node B that all the nodes of the last column connect to, and then searching for a path from A to B.

## 2 Problem 82

Find the minimal path sum from the left column to the right column.

Solution:

import Data.List import qualified Data.Map as M import Data.Array import Data.Ord (comparing) minPathSum xs t= stepPath M.empty $ M.singleton t $ arr ! t where len = genericLength $ head xs ys = concat $ transpose xs arr = listArray ((1, 1), (len, len)) ys nil = ((0,0),0) stepPath ds as |fs2 p1==len =snd p1 |fs2 p2==len =snd p2 |fs2 p3==len =snd p3 |otherwise=stepPath ds' as3 where fs2=fst.fst ((i, j), cost) = minimumBy (comparing snd) $ M.assocs as tas = M.delete (i,j) as (p1, as1) = if i == len then (nil, tas) else check (i+1, j) tas (p2, as2) = if j == len then (nil, as1) else check (i, j+1) as1 (p3, as3) = if j == 1 then (nil, as2) else check (i, j-1) as2 check pos zs = if pos `M.member` tas || pos `M.member` ds then (nil, zs) else (entry, uncurry M.insert entry $ zs) where entry = (pos, cost + arr ! pos) ds' = M.insert (i, j) cost ds main=do let parse = map (read . ("["++) . (++"]")) . words a<-readFile "matrix.txt" let s=parse a let m=minimum[minPathSum s (1,a)|a<-[1..80]] appendFile "p82.log"$show m problem_82 = main

Another concise approach:

transpose ([]:_) = [] transpose a = map head a : transpose (map tail a) main = do s <- readFile "matrix.txt" let a = transpose . map (\x -> read ("["++x++"]")) . lines $ s print $ minimum $ foldl1 (\u v -> let l1 = (head u + head v) : zipWith3 (\x y z -> x + min y z) (tail v) l1 (tail u) v' = reverse v l1' = reverse l1 l2 = head l1' : zipWith3 (\x y z -> min x (y+z)) (tail l1') l2 (tail v') in reverse l2) a

## 3 Problem 83

Find the minimal path sum from the top left to the bottom right by moving left, right, up, and down.

Solution:

A very verbose solution based on the Dijkstra algorithm. Infinity could be represented by any large value instead of the data type Distance. Also, some equality and ordering tests are not really correct. To be semantically correct, I think infinity == infinity should not be True and infinity > infinity should fail. But for this script's purpose it works like this.

## 4 Problem 84

In the game, Monopoly, find the three most popular squares when using two 4-sided dice.

This may not be the shortest or the fastest implementation, but I hope it is one of the clearest. I have one comment about the experience of solving this problem that I would like to share with you. At first I thought I would have to make use of the Control.Monad.State library, but being relatively new to Haskell, I quickly found myself in the slough of type checker despond. It was then that I remembered that foldl/foldr can used instead of "State," and now I found myself in the celestial city of type checker heaven, with Haskell preventing me from making silly mistakes at every turn.
