ZOJ Problem Set - 1309
In the ceiling in the basement of a newly open developers building a light source has been installed. Unfortunately, the material used to cover the floor is very sensitive to light. It turned out that its expected life time is decreasing dramatically. To avoid this, authorities have decided to protect light sensitive areas from strong light by covering them. The solution was not very easy because, as it is common, in the basement there are different pipelines under the ceiling and the authorities want to install the covers just on those parts of the floor that are not shielded from the light by pipes. To cope with the situation, the first decision was to simplify the real situation and, instead of solving the problem in 3D space, to construct a 2D model first.
Within this model, the x-axis has been aligned with the level of the floor. The light is considered to be a point light source with integer co-ordinates [bx,by]. The pipes are represented by circles. The center of the circle i has the integer co-ordinates [cxi,cyi] and an integer radius ri. As pipes are made from solid material, circles cannot overlap. Pipes cannot reflect the light and the light cannot go through the pipes. You have to write a program which will determine the non-overlapping intervals on the x-axis where there is, due to the pipes, no light from the light source.
