My Calendar III

Sweep Line, TreeMap, Interval


Implement a MyCalendarThree class to store your events. A new event can always be added.

Your class will have one method, book(int start, int end). Formally, this represents a booking on the half open interval[start, end), the range of real numbers x such that start <= x < end.

AK-bookinghappens when K events have some non-empty intersection (ie., there is some time that is common to all K events.)

For each call to the, return an integer K representing the largest integer such that there exists aK-booking in the calendar.

Your class will be called like this:

MyCalendarThree cal = new MyCalendarThree();, end)

Example 1:

MyCalendarThree();, 20); // returns 1, 60); // returns 1, 40); // returns 2, 15); // returns 3, 10); // returns 3, 55); // returns 3


The first two events can be booked and are disjoint, so the maximum K-booking is a 1-booking.
The third event [10, 40) intersects the first event, and the maximum K-booking is a 2-booking.
The remaining events cause the maximum K-booking to be only a 3-booking.
Note that the last event locally causes a 2-booking, but the answer is still 3 because
eg. [10, 20), [10, 40), and [5, 15) are still triple booked.


  • The number of calls to per test case will be at most 400.

  • In calls to, end), start and end are integers in the range [0, 10^9].

Solution & Analysis

理解 k-booking:

A K-booking happens when K events have some non-empty intersection (ie., there is some time that is common to all K events.)

Approach: Boundary Count - TreeMap - Sweep Line

基本思想和My Calendar II一样,这里问的变成了k-booking的值,每次新加入的booking不会被拒绝,那也就是说返回所有booking的重叠次数的最大值。完全套用TreeMap based扫描线做法即可。

Time: each booking() operation - O(n + logn), total for n booking(): O(n^2 + nlogn) ~ O(n^2)

Space: O(n)

class MyCalendarThree {
    TreeMap<Integer, Integer> calendar;

    public MyCalendarThree() {
        calendar = new TreeMap<>();

    public int book(int start, int end) {
        calendar.put(start, calendar.getOrDefault(start, 0) + 1);
        calendar.put(end, calendar.getOrDefault(end, 0) - 1);

        int ongoing = 0;
        int maxBooking = 0;
        for (int v: calendar.values()) {
            ongoing += v;
   = Math.max(maxBooking, ongoing);
        return maxBooking;

 * Your MyCalendarThree object will be instantiated and called as such:
 * MyCalendarThree obj = new MyCalendarThree();
 * int param_1 =,end);
