1801. Number of Orders in the Backlog
Description
You are given a 2D integer array orders
, where each orders[i] = [price_{i}, amount_{i}, orderType_{i}]
denotes that amount_{i}
_{ }orders have been placed of type orderType_{i}
at the price price_{i}
. The orderType_{i}
is:
0
if it is a batch ofbuy
orders, or1
if it is a batch ofsell
orders.
Note that orders[i]
represents a batch of amount_{i}
independent orders with the same price and order type. All orders represented by orders[i]
will be placed before all orders represented by orders[i+1]
for all valid i
.
There is a backlog that consists of orders that have not been executed. The backlog is initially empty. When an order is placed, the following happens:
 If the order is a
buy
order, you look at thesell
order with the smallest price in the backlog. If thatsell
order's price is smaller than or equal to the currentbuy
order's price, they will match and be executed, and thatsell
order will be removed from the backlog. Else, thebuy
order is added to the backlog.  Vice versa, if the order is a
sell
order, you look at thebuy
order with the largest price in the backlog. If thatbuy
order's price is larger than or equal to the currentsell
order's price, they will match and be executed, and thatbuy
order will be removed from the backlog. Else, thesell
order is added to the backlog.
Return the total amount of orders in the backlog after placing all the orders from the input. Since this number can be large, return it modulo 10^{9} + 7
.
Example 1:
Input: orders = [[10,5,0],[15,2,1],[25,1,1],[30,4,0]] Output: 6 Explanation: Here is what happens with the orders:  5 orders of type buy with price 10 are placed. There are no sell orders, so the 5 orders are added to the backlog.  2 orders of type sell with price 15 are placed. There are no buy orders with prices larger than or equal to 15, so the 2 orders are added to the backlog.  1 order of type sell with price 25 is placed. There are no buy orders with prices larger than or equal to 25 in the backlog, so this order is added to the backlog.  4 orders of type buy with price 30 are placed. The first 2 orders are matched with the 2 sell orders of the least price, which is 15 and these 2 sell orders are removed from the backlog. The 3^{rd} order is matched with the sell order of the least price, which is 25 and this sell order is removed from the backlog. Then, there are no more sell orders in the backlog, so the 4^{th} order is added to the backlog. Finally, the backlog has 5 buy orders with price 10, and 1 buy order with price 30. So the total number of orders in the backlog is 6.
Example 2:
Input: orders = [[7,1000000000,1],[15,3,0],[5,999999995,0],[5,1,1]] Output: 999999984 Explanation: Here is what happens with the orders:  10^{9} orders of type sell with price 7 are placed. There are no buy orders, so the 10^{9} orders are added to the backlog.  3 orders of type buy with price 15 are placed. They are matched with the 3 sell orders with the least price which is 7, and those 3 sell orders are removed from the backlog.  999999995 orders of type buy with price 5 are placed. The least price of a sell order is 7, so the 999999995 orders are added to the backlog.  1 order of type sell with price 5 is placed. It is matched with the buy order of the highest price, which is 5, and that buy order is removed from the backlog. Finally, the backlog has (10000000003) sell orders with price 7, and (9999999951) buy orders with price 5. So the total number of orders = 1999999991, which is equal to 999999984 % (10^{9} + 7).
Constraints:
1 <= orders.length <= 10^{5}
orders[i].length == 3
1 <= price_{i}, amount_{i} <= 10^{9}
orderType_{i}
is either0
or1
.
Solutions
Solution 1: Priority Queue (MaxMin Heap) + Simulation
We can use a priority queue (maxmin heap) to maintain the current backlog of orders, where the max heap buy
maintains the backlog of purchase orders, and the min heap sell
maintains the backlog of sales orders. Each element in the heap is a tuple $(price, amount)$, indicating that the number of orders at price price
is amount
.
Next, we traverse the order array orders
, and simulate according to the problem’s requirements.
After the traversal, we add the order quantities in buy
and sell
, which is the final backlog of orders. Note that the answer may be very large, so we need to take the modulus of $10^9 + 7$.
The time complexity is $O(n \times \log n)$, and the space complexity is $O(n)$. Here, $n$ is the length of orders
.
