woonketwong / selectionRank
Last active Dec 31, 2015
Selection Rank is a well known algorithm in computer science to find the ith smallest (or largest) element in an array in linear time. If the elements are unique, you can find the ith smallest or largest element in expected O(n) time. The code below implements finding the ith smallest element in javascript.
View selectionRank
var selectionRank = function(array, rank){
// randomly select a pivot
var pivotIndex = Math.floor( (Math.random() * array.length) );
var pivot = array[pivotIndex];
// left array stores the smallest <rank> elements in the array
var leftArr = [];
var rightArr = [];
// partition into left and right arrays
for (var i = 0; i < array.length; i++){
woonketwong / sortAndGroupAnagram
Created Dec 30, 2013
A method to sort an array of strings so that all the anagrams next to each other.
View sortAndGroupAnagram
var sortAndGroupAnagram = function(array){
var result = {};
var sortedResult = [];
var currentKey;
var allKey;
for (var i = 0; i < array.length; i++){
currentKey = array[i].split('').sort().join('');
if ( result.hasOwnProperty(currentKey) ){
woonketwong / mergeTwoSortedArray
Created Dec 31, 2013
Given two sorted arrays, A and B, where A has a large enough buffer at the end to hold B. Write a method to merge B into A in sorted order.
View mergeTwoSortedArray
var mergeTwoSortedArray = function(array1, array2){
var array1IndexEnd = array1.length - array2.length - 1;
var arrayExtraIndexEnd = array1.length - 1;
var array2IndexEnd = array2.length - 1;
while( array2IndexEnd >= 0){
if ( array1[array1IndexEnd] > array2[array2IndexEnd]){
array1[arrayExtraIndexEnd] = array1[array1IndexEnd];
woonketwong / findLocInInterspersedSortedArr
Created Dec 31, 2013
A binary search function on a sorted array of strings which is interspersed with empty strings.
View findLocInInterspersedSortedArr
var findLocInInterspersedSortedArr = function(strArr, target, first, last){
var mid = Math.floor( last - first / 2);
if (strArr[mid] === ''){
var left = mid - 1;
var right = mid + 1;
while (true){
if (left < first && right > last){
return -1;
woonketwong / quickSort
Created Jan 10, 2014
Quick sort implementation in JavaScript.
View quickSort
var quickSort = function(array, left, right){
var leftIndex = partition(array, left, right);
if (left < leftIndex - 1){
quickSort(array, left, leftIndex-1);
if (right > leftIndex){

View insertionSort
var insertionSort = function(array){
var target;
var sortedIndex = 0;
var targetIndex;

woonketwong / breathFirstSearch
Created Jan 12, 2014
Breath first search implementation with a queue.
View breathFirstSearch
var breathFirstSearch = function(node){
var queue = [];
// visit root
console.log("Node key, value", node.key, node.value);
while(queue.length !== 0){
currentNode = queue.pop();
woonketwong / isBalanced
Last active Jan 3, 2016
Implement a function to check if a tree is balanced. For the purposes of this question, a balanced tree is defined to be a tree such that no two leaf nodes differ in distance from the root by more than one.
View isBalanced
var isBalanced = function(node){
var maxDepth = function(node){
if (node === undefined){
return 0;
return 1 + Math.max(maxDepth([0]), maxDepth([1]));
var minDepth = function(node){
woonketwong / searchNodeUsingDFS
Created Jan 12, 2014
Given a directed graph, design an algorithm to find out whether there is a route between two nodes using DFS.
View searchNodeUsingDFS
var search = function(startNode, endNode){
//visit startNode
console.log("Visting:", startNode.key);
if (startNode.key === endNode.key){
return true;
startNode.visit = true;
