Maximum length subsequence with difference between adjacent elements as either 0 or 1 | Set 2

Given an array of n integers. The problem is to find maximum length of the subsequence with difference between adjacent elements in the subsequence as either 0 or 1. Time Complexity of O(n) is required.

Examples:

Input : arr[] = {2, 5, 6, 3, 7, 6, 5, 8}
Output : 5
The subsequence is {5, 6, 7, 6, 5}.

Input : arr[] = {-2, -1, 5, -1, 4, 0, 3}
Output : 4
The subsequence is {-2, -1, -1, 0}.



Method 1: Previously an approach having time complexity of O(n2) have been discussed in this post.

Method 2 (Efficient Approach): The idea is to create a hash map having tuples in the form (ele, len), where len denotes the length of the longest subsequence ending with the element ele. Now, for each element arr[i] we can find the length of the values arr[i]-1, arr[i] and arr[i]+1 in the hash table and consider the maximum among them. Let this maximum value be max. Now, the length of longest subsequence ending with arr[i] would be max+1. Update this length along with the element arr[i] in the hash table. Finally, the element having the maximum length in the hash table gives the maximum length subsequence.

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
   
// function to find maximum length subsequence 
// with difference between adjacent elements as
// either 0 or 1
int maxLenSub(int arr[], int n)
{
    // hash table to map the array element with the
    // length of the longest subsequence of which
    // it is a part of and is the last element of
    // that subsequence
    unordered_map<int, int> um;
      
    // to store the maximum length subsequence
    int maxLen = 0;
      
    // traverse the array elements
    for (int i=0; i<n; i++)
    {
        // initialize current length 
        // for element arr[i] as 0
        int len = 0;
          
        // if 'arr[i]-1' is in 'um' and its length of 
        // subsequence is greater than 'len'
        if (um.find(arr[i]-1) != um.end() && len < um[arr[i]-1])
            len = um[arr[i]-1];
          
        // if 'arr[i]' is in 'um' and its length of 
        // subsequence is greater than 'len'    
        if (um.find(arr[i]) != um.end() && len < um[arr[i]])
            len = um[arr[i]];
              
        // if 'arr[i]+1' is in 'um' and its length of 
        // subsequence is greater than 'len'        
        if (um.find(arr[i]+1) != um.end() && len < um[arr[i]+1])
            len = um[arr[i]+1];    
          
        // update arr[i] subsequence length in 'um'    
        um[arr[i]] = len + 1;
          
        // update maximum length
        if (maxLen < um[arr[i]])    
            maxLen = um[arr[i]];
    }
       
    // required maximum length subsequence
    return maxLen;        
}
   
// Driver program to test above
int main()
{
    int arr[] = {2, 5, 6, 3, 7, 6, 5, 8};
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    cout << "Maximum length subsequence = "
         << maxLenSub(arr, n);
    return 0;

Output:

Maximum length subsequence = 5

Time Complexity: O(n)
Auxiliary Space: O(n)
