Telephone interview: Find largest integer from an array of integers. The integers in the array are arranged in strictly increasing (no 2 integers are same) or strictly increasing then decreasing; so like a curve and you have to find the peak. Discuss time complexity. Write code.

Binary search

First, binary search will not work since just looking at a single point will not tell you if it's on the decreasing or increasing side of the curve. What you need is modified binary search. Looking at position i check position i+1 if it's increasing then search right otherwise search left; Code: int peak(vector V, int i, int iStart, int iEnd){ assert( i >= 0 && i = 0 && iStart = 0 && iEnd < V.size()); assert( iStart <= i && i <= iEnd ); if (i == iEnd) return i; int iCurr = V[i]; int iNext = V[i+1]; int iStartNew = iStart; int iEndNew = iEndl if( iCurr < iNext ) iStartNew = i; else iEndNew = i; int iNew = (iEndNew-iStartNew)/2; if( iNew == i ) iNew++; return peak(V, iNew, iStartNew, iEndNew); }

The question is a variation of the commonly asked problem of finding the start/end index of a sorted array that has been rotated. Takes O(log n) time.

Give me one example from your past employment history where unusual events created interpersonal conflict and/or impaired customer service (i.e. patient and/or physician), including how you solved these multiple problems, and what was the final outcome.
