Your function should return true if any value appears at least twice in the array,
and it should return false if every element is distinct.

Algorithm

Use a hash table, traverse the entire array, if the hash table exists, return false, if not, put it into the hash table.

Or, sort the array first, and then compare whether two adjacent numbers are equal, the time complexity depends on the sorting method.

Code

Java

import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.HashSet;
import java.util.Set;

public class Contains_Duplicate {


    public class Solution_extraSpace {
        public boolean containsDuplicate(int[] nums) {
            Set<Integer> set = new HashSet<>();
            for (int i : nums) {
                if (!set.add(i))// if there is same
                    return true;
            }
            return false;
        }
    }

    public class Solution_extraOps {
        public boolean containsDuplicate(int[] nums) {
            Arrays.sort(nums);
            for (int i = 1; i < nums.length; ++i) {
                if (nums[i] == nums[i - 1])
                    return true;
            }
            return false;
        }
    }
}
