Algorithms for dividing an array into n parts


This is a variant of the partition problem (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partition_problem for details). In fact a solution to this can solve that one (take an array, pad with 0s, and then solve this problem) so this problem is NP hard.

There is a dynamic programming approach that is pseudo-polynomial. For each i from 0 to the size of the array, you keep track of all possible combinations of current sizes for the sub arrays, and their current sums. As long as there are a limited number possible sums of subsets of the array, this runs acceptably fast.

The solution that I would have suggested is to just go for "good enough" closeness. First let's consider the simpler problem with all values positive. Then sort by value descending. Take that array in threes. Build up the three subsets by always adding the largest of the triple to the one with the smallest sum, the smallest to the one with the largest, and the middle to the middle. You will end up dividing the array evenly, and the difference will be no more than the value of the third smallest element.

For the general case you can divide into positive and negative, use the above approach on each, and then brute force all combinations of a group of positives, a group of negatives, and the few leftover values in the middle that did not divide evenly.

Dividing an array into optimum no of equal sum sublists
Finding a single subset with a given weight is NP hard. If you've some way to identify all the subsets of a given weight and whose costs are less than $300 then you need to solve an exact cover problem, which is NP hard in general. So you can't expect to find any algorithm with less than exponential complexity in the worst case. But what I'd try here is this: let W = total weight of all packages

Display parts of data from array in php
Basically you may access array elements by index. Remove the foreach and use $articles[0] for the main article, and $articles[1] and so on for the rest. You may improve the code using array_slice function to extract the sub-news and use a foreach to avoid repeating the code for each of them.

Dividing a list into two lists
You're using lstrip(). lstrip() will remove leading whitespace. The string " <=50K" has leading whitespace. So we might try to compare against a string that has no leading whitespace: if row[-1].strip() == "<=50K": Or perhaps: under_50k = [row[:-1] for row in training_list if row[-1].strip() == "<=50K"] over_50k = [row[:-1] for row in training_list if row[-1].strip() == ">50K"

Graph algorithm for dividing students into two groups
You could use below steps and then use Bipartite Graph algorithm. Consider a graph where each student is a node and then two nodes are connected by an edge if the students could not be in the same group. if student A and B must be in same group then connect B to every node that A is connected and connect A to every node that B is connected too. now you have a graph that you want to check if ve
