CSES - Sliding Cost
|Time limit:||1.00 s
||Memory limit:||512 MB|
You are given an array of $n$ integers. Your task is to calculate for each window of $k$ elements, from left to right, the minimum total cost of making each element the same.
You can increase or decrease each element, and the cost is $x$ where $x$ is the difference between the new and original value. The total cost is the sum of such costs.
The first input line contains two integers $n$ and $k$: the number of elements and the size of the window.
Then there are $n$ integers $x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_n$: the contents of the array.
Output $n-k+1$ values: the costs.
- $1 \le k \le n \le 2 \cdot 10^5$
- $1 \le x_i \le 10^9$
