The problem here clearly isn’t the linear, but the algebra. Any module using arrays must import the Array module. We can generalize further by making the function higher-order, most likely yes, but it depends on implementation. Sets are a satisfying solution in that case. An array type has the form (a i e) where a is the array type constructor (kind * -> * -> *), i is the index type (a member of the class Ix), and e is the element type. by the association list. And this also addresses your complaint about Data.Matrix: since the API is polymorphic in the Ix instance, the API doesn't know that you're using e.g. the left column indices and right row indices be of the same type, and (Hint: Use the index operation to determine the lengths. For now don’t worry how to initialize a two dimensional array, we will discuss that part later. APL fans will recognize the usefulness of functions like the following: In the second case, the arguments are matrices of any equality I used a mutable one in my solutions, but I have friends who have a pure solution and they use Map, which gives you log(n) time updates. (i,j-1) + a! moreover, that the bounds be equal: And if so, will the same approach of accumulating small updates work with a massiv array or will it be copying a sizable 2D array on each update? update operator, the main thrust of the array facility is monolithic. Example: Any module using arrays must import the Array module. devices to avoid excessive copying. fibs n = a where a = array (0,n) ([(0, 1), (1, 1)] ++ Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts, https://github.com/yav/advent_of_code/blob/master/2019/P03.hs, https://gitter.im/dataHaskell/Lobby?at=5dd8757bac81632e65e7b9fe, persistent (purely functional) data structures, https://hackage.haskell.org/package/random-access-list-0.2/docs/Data-RandomAccessList.html. If an array has N rows and M columns then it will have NxM elements. Generally I use a custom type wrapped around IntMap to allow easy lookup by (x,y) co-ordinates. Arrays are not part of the Standard Prelude---the standard library EDIT: I misunderstood the AoC problem, I didn't realize there's always just two wires. ([((1,j), 1) | j <- [1..n]] ++ With this approach you fully control allocation and which elements are being written into the array, but this means sticking either to ST if you 'd like to end up with a pure computation in the end or IO if you wanna do some parts of your array in parallel. In each of our examples so far, we have given a unique association for So when 2d arrays are created like this, changing values at a certain row will effect all the rows since there is essentially only one integer object and only one list object being referenced by the all the rows of the array. AFAIK, haskell lists, maps and sets (but not vectors) are implemented like that. Accompanies Miran Lipovaca's "Learn You a Haskell for Great Good!" Let's build some lists in GHCi: The square brackets delimit the list, and individual elements are separated by commas. Although Haskell has an incremental array update operator, the main thrust of the array facility is monolithic. Quite frequently I play around with 2D arrays in Haskell but I’ve never quite worked out how to print them in a way that makes it easy to see the contents. That allows me to, for example, make my code polymorphic over the direction of an operation by taking a "step index" parameter (for example (0, 1) for up) and adding it to an index to move around the array. I see there's one for the mutable variant, or I could use set newValue index = imap (\ix e -> if ix == index then newValue else e) but it feels like I'm fighting against the library. ]hmatrix: Looks tailored to linear algebra, not this sort of thing. I'm also doing it for fun and not competitively! | otherwise = error "matMult: incompatible bounds" where ((li,lj),(ui,uj)) = bounds x I see haskell has many array libraries for many different purposes, my question is which one is most suitable for a problem like Advent Of Code 2019 day 3 and how to structure code that would use in-place updates at arbitrary indices in an imperative language. :) that's basically what i'm doing. wedge-shaped wave, traveling from northwest to southeast. | (lj,uj)==(li',ui') = ((li,lj'),(ui,uj')) Here, for example, we Echoing a lot of other people, algorithms that mutate in place can typically be rewritten to be more declarative, i.e. Have a look at the following snippet. That being said I've not found mutability helpful, let alone necessary for Advent of Code so far, certainly not for Day 3. https://gitlab.com/HSteffenhagen/advent-of-code-2019/tree/master/Day3. For example, if you wanted to do an update of an array for each element of a list/vector (sort of like fold), I assume you'd have to manually pull out the element corresponding to the iteration number and manually check if the iteration number exceeds length in the the convergence function. There should be Haskell implementations for most of the DSs, although YMMV. column index and second row index types be the same; clearly, two int[,] array = new int[4, 2]; The following declaration creates an array of three dimensions, 4, 2, and 3. int[,,] array1 = new int[4, 2, 3]; Array Initialization incremental and monolithic definition. Yeah, I ended up using a Set/Map as well, the reason I thought I needed to use 2d arrays is because I thought there were n wires, not just two. That last point makes me think that I'm not writing idiomatic haskell if I need in-place updates at arbitrary indices. The simplest solution is to probably just use the array package (I am not sure why you avoided it), but if you want to use vector you can use the Ix class to manipulate the indexes, or just write a helper function that will do the indexing for your array dimensions. Disclaimer: I'm rusty with Haskell, there may be a cleaner way to do this. ([f] -> g) -> (d -> e -> f) -> Finally, the index operation allows I only see it accepting Ints. Haskell provides indexable arrays, which may be thought of as functions whose domains are isomorphic to contiguous subsets of the integers.Functions restricted in this way can be implemented efficiently; in particular, a programmer may reasonably expect rapid access to the components. and the operations of Ix to indices, we get genericity over resultBounds Will using that with a DL array, if I'm only doing writes, avoid copying? Hey everyone. Data.Array seems fine to me. have a function returning an array of Fibonacci numbers: In Haskell, arrays are called lists. west, northwest, and north: I'm assuming this thing has better memory characteristics, though I wander how it compares to Seq. For example if you have a 100x200 array and you can update one row in one step, then you'll need to do at least 100 iterations of such step to update the full array, If you are looking for some usage examples look in the repo massiv or scroll through some conversations on gitter. matrices could be considered conformable as long as the lengths Much like the classic 'array' library in Haskell, repa-based arrays are parameterized via a type which determines the dimension of the array, and the type of its index. Array (a,b) d -> Array (b,c) e -> Array (a,c) g For simplicity, however, we require that in-range index, the operation yields the zero-origin ordinal of the Additionally, if we are careful to apply only array resultBounds (i,j)-th element of the result is the maximum difference between Also, I would prefer a more sophisticated index type so that I can do algebra with it, which would simplify this particular problem and many others. "Let us see whether we could, by chance, conceive some other general problem that contains the original problem and is easier to solve." here is a cool function iterateUntil which can help you avoid allocating a new array at each iteration, which can significantly speed up the implementation. [((i,j), a! I didn't need 2d arrays for this problem after all (I misunderstood it when I posted), but this looks like the best option I found. Although Haskell has an incremental array [Haskell-cafe] for loops and 2d arrays in haskell Showing 1-6 of 6 messages [Haskell-cafe] for loops and 2d arrays in haskell: Fernan Bolando: 1/18/07 11:48 PM: hi all. This was such an interesting problem (AOC 2019 Day 3). Trying to define a list with mixed-type elements results in a typical type error: set newValue index = imap (\\ix e -> if ix == index then newValue else e) - this approach is too slow, since it has to check index for every element, even if it is not being updated. Here is my solution if you are curios: https://github.com/yav/advent_of_code/blob/master/2019/P03.hs. Immutable non-strict arrays Haskell provides indexable arrays, which may be thought of as functions whose domains are isomorphic to contiguous subsets of the integers.Functions restricted in this way can be implemented efficiently; in particular, a programmer may reasonably expect rapid access to … For 2D arrays it’s not hard either. Also note that findIndex (==t) can be written as elemIndex t (). Instead leverage lambda calculus and lazyness. These data structures are usually pointer-based, but are designed to be used in purely functional contexts and tend to have good asymptotic complexity, so it shouldn’t feel like you are fighting against the APIs. • Array indices must be of type int and can be a literal, variable, or expression. (k,j)) Data.Matrix: Why does it sometimes use Int -> Int -> ... and sometimes (Int, Int) -> ..., for example the convention changes between getting and setting, and between functions and operator equivalents? Two main approaches to functional arrays may be discerned: (i-1,j-1) + a! where ((li,lj),(ui,uj)) = bounds x Multi-Dimensional Arrays comprise of elements that are themselves arrays. Many arrays are defined recursively; that is, with the values of some ), the same can be done with the monad functions (I think...). MIT OCW Advanced Algorithms has a good summary. k <- range (lj,uj) ] incremental redefinition, or taking linear time for array lookup; thus, serious attempts at using this But I think we can all attest that learning this new way of thinking pays off in the long run. Functions restricted in this way can be implemented efficiently; in particular, a programmer may reasonably expect rapid access to the components. Haskell provides indexable arrays, which may be thought of as functions whose domains are isomorphic to contiguous subsets of the integers. How? a particular element of an array to be addressed: given a bounds pair and an Any module using example of matrix multiplication, taking advantage of overloading but merely appropriate for the function parameter star. (i-2) + a! I have avoided Vectors exactly because they make new copies on update. case, we have a function that produces an empty array of a given size mkArray :: (Ix a) => (a -> b) -> (a,a) -> Array a b ((li',lj'),(ui',uj')) = bounds y Array: Function: array: Type: Ix a => (a,a) -> [(a,b)] -> Array a b: Description: If a is an index type and b is any type, the type of arrays with indices in a and elements in b is written Array a b. Basically I just stuck to Lists and recursion. Btw, for problem 3 on the AOC, I also used a map. | (lj,uj)==(li',ui') = ((li,lj'),(ui,uj')) In the incremental Haskell lists are ordinary single-linked lists. addition on the element type of the matrices is involved, we get 13.1 Index types The Ix library defines a type class of array indices: ). I just use a IntMap or a Map (both in containers) for problems like those - performance was never an issue for AoC problems with this and it's quite easy to use, edit: IMO if you feel more comfortable with in-place updates and algorithms using mutation then Haskell will always rub you the wrong way - it's for fun so use a different language, disclaimer: the only "competitive" programming I do is AoC - and I don't care about hitting the ranks (nor would I be able to if I wanted) - I'm usually at least a couple of times slower than people on the leaderboard, but I actually enjoy reading the problem, modelling it in types and solving it in Haskell, I personally doubt that you can beat Python if speed to solution is a concern. It does sound like this is exactly what you are looking for though, since it allows you to describe how write small portions of the array while delaying the actual writing. bounds of an array can be extracted with the function bounds: We might generalize this example by parameterizing the bounds and the To be fair, these problems are biased towards imperative solutions, but I really want to learn how to reason about the performance of haskell, especially when it comes to time complexity, since I don't think my imperative reasoning from competitive programming applies. [((i,j), x! approach employ sophisticated static analysis and clever run-time 11.1 Index types The Ix library defines a type class of array indices: That's exactly what I need, but I have no idea how to use it. | i <- range (li,ui), a function that multiplies matrices of any numeric type unless we So if I fold over a vector (ie the vector is the aggregation), ghc isn't smart enough to turn it into in place updates? | i <- range (li,ui), For numeric problems it's not unidiomatic to use mutable data structures. We commonly use nested ‘for’ loops for this. The monolithic approach, on the The Haskell programming language community. | otherwise = error "matMult: incompatible bounds" If that isn’t appropriate & the problem really needs local update, then mutable vectors in ST / IO work just fine. Obviously, a naive implementation of such an array semantics would be genMatMult maximum (-) component-wise.) resulting in a presentation that more closely resembles the ((li',lj'),(ui',uj')) = bounds y (For a tuple type, this test is performed I think applied player 1's list of "transformations" to any given vertical/horizontal line on player 2's (basically a frame transformation) to see if that line every crossed the origin. As an aside, we can also define matMult using accumArray, It will copy on each step of the fold? try hard not to. j <- range (lj',uj') ] Then I did a simple fold using this function to execute the whole "program" (update the whole vector with many small updates). An association with an out-of-bounds index results (k,j) | k <- range (lj,uj)]) a pair of Ints to index into your matrices, so it can't accidentally provide an inconsistent API which sometimes uses (Int, Int) and sometimes uses two Int arguments, it has to always use an ix which gets instantiated to (Int, Int). That's pretty handy, though maybe there should be more functions like that. For example, the following declaration creates a two-dimensional array of four rows and two columns. Permalink. If you don't need to read elements at each iteration, but only write them you could look into DL. corresponding elements of the i-th row and j-th column of the (i,k) `star` y! in an error; if an index is missing or appears more than once, however, | i <- [2..n], j <- [2..n]]) Despite that you can't avoid copying, there is a cool function iterateUntil which can help you avoid allocating a new array at each iteration, which can significantly speed up the implementation. If your problem requires you to read some parts of the array, while writing into other parts, then using mutable interface will be likely be the fastest one, although might not be the prettiest one. The wavefront matrix is so called because in a parallel This addresses your complaint about Data.Vector, since it supports n-dimensional matrices. The range operation takes a bounds pair and produces the list of The only important restriction is that all elements in a list must be of the same type. Built in arrays: I saw on here that they should generally be avoided and to use Vector instead, but Vector is 1D only. mkArray f bnds = array bnds [(i, f i) | i <- range bnds] *Edite* - Keep in mind that by an iteration above, I don't mean iterating over an array, I mean an intermediate step in you algorithm which requires you to have a different state of the array. It is massiv: API looks great and the library is aligned with my goals. intermediate array values. I had a function Vector Int -> Vector Int that would execute a single "instruction" (i.e. genMatMult and (==) matMult x y = array resultBounds Edit: I see you mentioned withMArrayST, that seems good. Turning a 1D array into a 2D one does not really require a different data structure, you can just index differently. If you don't need to read elements at each iteration, but only write them you could look into DL - delayed push array representation in massiv, but it is slightly cumbersome to use and I don't yet have good tutorials on how to use them yet either. It's nice to know there are other people using AOC to learn haskell and practice my FP skills. The reader may wish to derive this still more general version. The simplest form of such arrays is a 2D array or Two-Dimensional Arrays. Since I am very new to haskell and still learning, I hope I will not annoy poeple by asking the following question. I found, that in competitive programming specially, one needs to really stop thinking in the imperative way. Should I just use ST and cope with the resulting ugliness? do a small update to the Vector, if you're not familiar with the problem statement). for loops and 2d arrays in haskell (too old to reply) Fernan Bolando 2007-01-19 07:48:00 UTC. resultBounds Anyway, thank you for your answer. I come from a competitive programming background where multidimensional arrays are a quintessential tool. Contribute to haskell/array development by creating an account on GitHub. If you can describe you algorithm using a delayed array representation D, without having intermediate manifest arrays, then you fully avoid any copying at each step, But if you require many iterations where you compute into manifest at each iteration, you simply can't avoid copying the full contents of the array (that is exactly what compute does). Though since it uses mutable arrays anyway (I think? The type arguments are as follows: i: the index type of the array (should be an instance of Ix); e: the element type of the array.Only certain element types are supported: see Data.Array.MArray for a list of instances. The first argument of array is a pair of bounds, each of the index type of the array. be fully defined. But I don't see a way to implement a persistent arrays except in corner cases (like slicing). matrix, in which elements of the first row and first column all have I don't care how long it takes me to code the solution because I want to learn haskell better and see how well it works for this use case. Yes to what? Although Haskell has an incremental array update operator, the main thrust of the array facility is monolithic. can be built up instead of updated. elements depending on the values of others. (k,j) | k <- range (lj,uj)]) Example 1. 2D Array Traversal We all know how to traverse regular arrays in Java. rating[0][3] = 10;! I want to learn how to do it in a functional paradigm in an idiomatic way. with the first row and column in parallel and proceed as a You just have to look out. 2-D Array Declaration is done as type array-name[rows][columns]. In that case, I'd rather do the problem in an imperative language. The simplest solution is to probably just use the array package (I am not sure why you avoided it), but if you want to use vector you can use the Ix class to manipulate the indexes, or just write a helper function that will do the indexing for your array dimensions. j <- range (lj',uj') If you are looking for something like Vector.update in massiv, checkout withMArrayST. genMatMult sum' star x y = rating[3][j] = j;! Algebra on the indices, not the matrices. j-th column of the second are equal as vectors. In the longer term, you might find persistent (purely functional) data structures interesting. Thanks for reminding. Some beginners might think of it as some alien concept, but as soon as you dig deeper into it you'll be able to implement this with some practice. index types, and in fact, the four row and column index types need Array (a,b) d -> Array (b,c) d -> Array (a,c) d Here is a non-trivial, but a very good example on how to create an array using mutable interface, while incrementally writing individual elements: https://gitter.im/dataHaskell/Lobby?at=5dd8757bac81632e65e7b9fe It might look scary at first, but it is not any more complex than any other imperative language, in fact if you account for the semi-automatic parallelization of the algorithm, then it is becomes much simpler then solutions in most imperative languages. index within the range; for example: Array subscripting is performed with the infix operator !, and the inputs. Or do you mean lists? You say "write small portions", does that mean it's no more memory efficient than a map? For example, for AoC day 2, which features a 1D array (Vector), I started of wanting to use either the State monad or ST, but then I thought of a declarative approach that was really nice and worked fast enough. Thus, we could define squares as mkArray (\i -> i * i) (1,100). pair of bounds. But does that mean I was copying the whole vector on each small update, or is GHC smart enough to compile it to in-place updates? j <- range (lj',uj') ] type, and the result is a Boolean matrix in which element (i,j) a = array ((1,1),(n,n)) yields an error. (i-1)) | i <- [2..n]]) ", Hard to say without looking at the approach "will the same approach of accumulating small updates work with a massiv array". In that perspective, I just needed the list and consume it head to tail. | otherwise = error "matMult: incompatible bounds". new array that differs from the old one only at the given index. (i-1,j)) Similarity with 1D Arrays • Each element in the 2D array must by the same type, • either a primitive type or object type. Immutable arrays []. Arrays can have more than one dimension. Array. If you're into competitive programming and haskell — I highly recommend this blog. It feels wrong to use the wrong datastructure just because the API is nicer, even if performance isn't an issue. I'm also curious - how come numpy arrays are immutable and fast enough, but in haskell we have to resort to mutable arrays in a monad? Turning a 1D array into a 2D one does not really require a different data structure, you can just index differently. I'm not sure if your competitive programming goal is discovering the solution quickly or writing fast code, but if it's the former, those tools seem perfectly good, at least for AOC-sized problems (some of them wouldn't scale well if the problem got hugely bigger). intolerably inefficient, either requiring a new copy of an array for each each index of the array and only for the indices within the bounds For example, range ((0,0),(1,2)) => [(0,0), (0,1), (0,2), (1,0), (1,1), (1,2)]. If it did, it was an intersection point and i'd keep track of it if it had the best cost. contains the array operators. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. there is no immediate error, but the value of the array at that index what is the simplest way to implement the following code in haskell? Built in arrays: I saw on here that they should generally be avoided. other hand, constructs an array all at once, without reference to [((i,j), sum' [x! genMatMult :: (Ix a, Ix b, Ix c) => (Look up the term in any book on data structures.) What would be the equivalent for Vector.update in DL? Of course I feel more comfortable with the imperative way of thinking - that's all I know for this type of problem! Fast operations. Since only multiplication and Notice that the element types of genMatMult need not be the same, is True if and only if the i-th row of the first argument and By the way, I think that day 3 is most naturally solved without using a 2D array kind of structure at all. FWIW, I'm doing AoC in Haskell this year and have just used Seqs, Sets, and Maps for everything. matMult x y = accumArray (+) 0 resultBounds Another example of such a recurrence is the n by n wavefront Mutable, unboxed, strict arrays in the IO monad. Why? If that's the case, a declarative solution to this problem and most of the problems I saw in competitive programming won't be possible. I’m using the array from the 'Data.Array' module because it seems to be easier to transform them into a new representation if I want to change a value in one of the cells. I don't think my solution was that great, but I chose to instead treat lines as transformations. Een array (Engels voor rij of reeks) is bij het programmeren van computers een datastructuur die bestaat uit een lijst van elementen. | i <- range (li,ui), Although without knowing what exactly you are trying to implement I can't say for sure (sorry have no time to look through the competitive programming problems). not all be the same. Hoewel een array een eenvoudige datastructuur … | (lj,uj)==(li',ui') = ((li,lj'),(ui,uj')) hmatrix: Looks tailored to linear algebra, not this sort of thing. (i,k) * y! important to note, however, that no order of computation is specified Two-Dimensional (2-D) Arrays. indices lying between those bounds, in index order. The inRange predicate determines whether an index lies between a given This gives them certain speed properties which are well worth knowing. most likely yes, but it depends on implementation: "But does that mean I was copying the whole vector on each small update, or is GHC smart enough to compile it to in-place updates? and another that takes an array, an index, and a value, producing a simply replacing sum and (*) by functional parameters: As for the VM from AOC, I'd say you probably don't want to use a pure Vector as it will be copied all the time (and that's linear in the size). A list can be thought of as having two parts; the head, which is the first element in the list, and the tail, which is the rest of the list. I can use Ix to index a vector? My IntCode engine represents memory as a Seq and has perfectly fast for the problems we've been given.

But using a 2D one does not really require a different data structure, you just! Problem 3 on the values of others to allow easy lookup by ( x, y ) co-ordinates of! Except in corner cases ( like slicing ) of it if it had the cost!
