876. Middle of the Linked List

题目地址

题目描述

Given a non-empty, singly linked list with head node head, return a middle node of linked list.
If there are two middle nodes, return the second middle node.
Example 1:
Input: [1,2,3,4,5]
Output: Node 3 from this list (Serialization: [3,4,5])
The returned node has value 3. (The judge's serialization of this node is [3,4,5]).
Note that we returned a ListNode object ans, such that:
ans.val = 3, ans.next.val = 4, ans.next.next.val = 5, and ans.next.next.next = NULL.
Example 2:
Input: [1,2,3,4,5,6]
Output: Node 4 from this list (Serialization: [4,5,6])
Since the list has two middle nodes with values 3 and 4, we return the second one.
Note:
The number of nodes in the given list will be between 1 and 100.

代码

Approach #1 Output to Array

Time O(N) Space O(N)
/**
* Definition for singly-linked list.
* public class ListNode {
* int val;
* ListNode next;
* ListNode(int x) { val = x; }
* }
*/
class Solution {
public ListNode middleNode(ListNode head) {
ListNode[] A = new ListNode[100];
int t = 0;
while (head != null) {
A[t++] = head;
head = head.next;
}
return A[t / 2];
}
}

Approach #2 Fast and Slow Pointer

Time O(N) Space O(1)
class Solution {
public ListNode middleNode(ListNode head) {
ListNode slow = head, fast = head;
while (fast != null && fast.next != null) {
slow = slow.next;
fast = fast.next.next;
}
return slow;
}
}
