Solution which avoid visiting a number more than one time :
import Data.Array.Unboxed import qualified Data.IntSet as S import Data.List takeUntil _  =  takeUntil pred (x:xs) = x : if pred x then takeUntil pred xs else  chain n s = lgo [n] $ properDivisorsSum ! n where lgo xs x | x > 1000000 || S.notMember x s = (xs,) | x `elem` xs = (xs,x : takeUntil (/= x) xs) | otherwise = lgo (x:xs) $ properDivisorsSum ! x properDivisorsSum :: UArray Int Int properDivisorsSum = accumArray (+) 1 (0,1000000) $ (0,-1):[(k,factor)| factor<-[2..1000000 `div` 2] , k<-[2*factor,2*factor+factor..1000000] ] base = S.fromList [1..1000000] problem_95 = fst $ until (S.null . snd) f ((0,0),base) where f (p@(n,m), s) = (p', s') where setMin = head $ S.toAscList s (explored, chn) = chain setMin s len = length chn p' = if len > m then (minimum chn, len) else p s' = foldl' (flip S.delete) s explored
Here is a more straightforward solution, without optimization. Yet it solves the problem in a few seconds when compiled with GHC 6.6.1 with the -O2 flag. I like to let the compiler do the optimization, without cluttering my code.
This solution avoids using unboxed arrays, which many consider to be somewhat of an imperitive-style hack. In fact, no memoization at all is required.

We limit the search to chains whose -- smallest number is no more than m and, optionally, whose -- largest number is no more than m'. longestChain m m' = (n, k) where (n, Just k) = foldl1' cmpChain [(n, findChain n) | n <- [2..m]] findChain n = f  n $ d n f s n n' | n' == n = Just $ 1 + length s | n' < n = Nothing | maybe False (< n') m' = Nothing | n' `elem` s = Nothing | otherwise = f (n' : s) n $ d n' cmpChain p@(n, k) q@(n', k') | (k, negate n) < (k', negate n') = q | otherwise = p problem_95_v2 = longestChain 1000000 (Just 1000000)
