Longest increasing digital subsequence
Let \(S[1..n]\) be a sequence of integers between \(0\) and \(9\). A digital subsequence of \(S\) is a sequence \(D[1..k]\) of integers such that each integer \(D[i]\) is the numerical value of a sub…

Maintaining fitstrings
Every non-negative integer can be represented as the sum of distinct positive Fibonacci numbers. (As a warmup exercise, prove this claim!) In other words, instead of a string of bits, we can represe…
