## Minimum Increments to reach the given MEX in C++In C++, there also exists a case in which, the . MEX in general finds the increments which has no occurrences among the array elements. The final product of the instruction is the filled array having the minimum number of increments possible to contain all non-negative integers up to the given MEX value.smallest non-negative integerThis can be done by conducting operations. To start with you sort the array. The lastly, you use binary search to get the position of the MEX in the arranges array. The time difference of the found binary search and their positions give you the minimum number of steps that can be counted. This method presents the array construction. At the same time, the method allows MEX criterion to be optimal and having MEX time complexity.O(N)## MEX (Minimum EXcluded):MEX is the The problem is the increment will keep the array containing integers in the range from 0 up to the specified MEX. ## Minimum Increments:An " The aim is to find the minimum number of increments needed to accomplish the targeted MEX. ## Approach 1: Using Sorting
Original Array: 1 3 2 5 Minimum increments required to reach MEX 4: 0
The presented C++ source code solves the issue of determining the least increments required to obtain a **Sorting the array:**
The elements of the . Sorting serves as the vital operation in the array element traversal.ascending order**Tracking Variables:**
Two variables are utilized to keep track of the progress through the array and the increments made:
**Iterating Through the Sorted Array:**
The loop iterates through the sorted array (sorted_nums). During each iteration, the code checks the relationship between the current element and the current MEX: So if the element is equal to the Suppose the element exceeds the current MEX; the code increments the current MEX, and the total increments by the absolute difference between the . This is why the array gets filled with consecutive integers at the expense of performance.element**Handling Remaining MEX Values:**
After the array is sorted, the next step is to
The Function returns the
The main Function demonstrates the usage of the algorithm by considering a given array (nums) and a predetermined MEX value. It invokes the The program displays the original array and the smallest jumps needed to achieve the required MEX. This helps users understand how changes to the array meet the
The time and space complexity of the presented C++ code can be observed to determine the minimum increment that will bring the MEX to the target value to understand its
The time complexity depends on the way of sorting the data. In the C++ where 'n' represents the input array's size.O(n log n),
The sort operation sorts the array sorted_nums of length 'n'. The complexity of the sorting algorithm is The algorithm scans through the array once after the sorting. Every iteration contains a constant-time operation, which includes comparisons and increments. Therefore, the total time complexity of this step is
The last step, dealing with the rest of the MEX values, also includes constant-time operations and thus adds The O(n log n).
The space complexity of the code is affected by the data structures created and used dynamically during the algorithm's execution.
So, the new vector sorted_nums is created to store the sorted version of the original array. This vector's space complexity is
Two variables (increments and current_mex), which are integers, are used to keep track of the increments and the to the space complexity.O(1)
The code uses a few other local variables, such as loop counters and temporary variables, which consume constant space and contribute The dominant term in space complexity is the space required for the sorted array. Thus, the entire space complexity of the code is ## Approach 2: Using Counting Array
Original Array: 1 3 2 5 Minimum increments required to reach MEX 4: 0
The given C++ code is developed to find out the least amount of additions required to obtain a particular MEX element in an array with the help of a counting array approach. **Initialization of Counting Array (count):**
First, a counting array (count) will be prepared with the size of MEX.**Counting Occurrences in the Original Array (nums):**
The code goes through each element of the original array (nums) and updates the counting array with the number of occurrences of each number. This step guarantees the presence of each int's occurrence count till its **Iterating Through the Counting Array:**
Two variables are initialized: the text value current_mex is to be used to track the . If a gap implies some integers are missing, then the sequences of increments are made to fill in those gaps. The difference between the existing MEX and the index is added to all indexincrements.**Returning Total Increments:**
The Function returns the total increment, the minimum number of increments required to reach the MEX in the beginning.
**Invalid Input Handling:**
The code has a check for invalid inputs. The Function returns -1 if the MEX value specified is a negative number. This indicates that the MEX value is **Example Usage in Main:**
The main case shows how to implement the algorithm on an array (nums) with a specified MEX value. This Function is called with these

We can calculate the execution time and memory consumption of the given C++ code to evaluate its performance.
The main factor determining the algorithmic complexity is the iterations over the initial array (nums) and the subsequent iterations over the counting array.
The innermost loop will iterate through the original array (nums), and its time complexity is
In the second loop, the loop variable indexes through the counting array that has a size of MEX + 1. In the worst case, it takes 'MEX' iterations for this loop to run. Therefore, the time complexity of this loop is This way, the time complexity of the code is O(n).
The extra data structures created determine the space or the additional memory the algorithm requires.
The space taken by the counting array (count) is O(mex).
Two integer variables (current_mex and increments) are being used here to track the progress of the array and increments made. These variables are constant space, and the remaining
The code also utilizes a few other local variables like loop counters and temporary variables, which use ## Approach 3: Using HashSet

The space complexity of the program depends on the additional data structures created during the run time.
O(n).
Calculating all these parameters, the time complexity of the program is ## Approach 4: Using Binary Search AlgorithmAnother method is based on binary search, which can also be used to find the MEX in a sorted array. This method performs a binary search to check the initial guess, sorts the array and then returns the smallest missing non-negative integer.
Original Array: 1 3 2 5 Sorted Array: 1 3 2 5 Minimum increments required to reach MEX: 0
Using a binary search technique, the C++ code here aims to calculate the minimum incrementations required to attain the stated Minimum Excluded (MEX) value in the given array.
**Sort the Array:**
First, the Function copies the original array and then sorts it in non-decreasing order by using the sort function from the C++ STL **Binary Search for MEX:**
It then sets two pointers, 'low' and 'high', to specify the search range in the array. The Function conducts a binary searching until the . In each iteration, it calculates the middle index and then compares the values at that index with the index itself. Based on the comparison, it narrows down the search range either to the left or right side, according to the results.'high' pointer**Calculate Increments:**
After finishing the binary search, the Function identifies the MEX value and calculates the least increment needed to achieve it. The **Main Function:**

The code sorts the input array using the sort function from the C++ STL. Usually, the sorting order is
The binary search algorithm is applied to the sorted array to find the time, where n is the size of the sorted array. This is the fact that the search space is halved in each iteration until the target value is found.O(log n)Finally, sorting is the most important factor in the time complexity.
