Episode 25 - Desert Wind

One of the viewers, Mikhail Goncharov, has happily contributed time links to an old episode of algorithms live. You can see the links in the description of the knapsack episode. It is now way easier to navigate the episode to find a useful subtopic being discussed. This expanded description also gives a nice outline so you get an overview of an old episode. Thank you so much! If anyone else would like to contribute similar time links, just send me an overview of the episode in this form (either PM through Codeforces or YouTube):

00:00 Introduction
03:23 Technique 1
5:31 Problem Name
13:21 Technique 2
14:30 Coding

I really appreciate this type of contribution. If you can contribute to even one episode, please do!

In this week's episode, I will be discussing an old problem that I find interesting, Desert Wind. You can the problem statement here:

The episode should be a bit shorter than usual but I hope you will all still enjoy it. I should be done right before the start of this week's Codeforces Educational Round.

See you live! (time, stream)
