Leetcode 53 Maximum Subarray Java Solution

Given an integer array nums, find the contiguous subarray (containing at least one number) which has the largest sum and return its sum.


Input: [-2,1,-3,4,-1,2,1,-5,4],
Output: 6
Explanation: [4,-1,2,1] has the largest sum = 6.

If you have figured out the O(n) solution, try coding another solution using the divide and conquer approach, which is more subtle.

Solution 1:

class Solution {
    public int maxSubArray(int[] nums) {
        int max = nums[0];
        for(int i=1;i<nums.length;i++){
            nums[i] = Math.max(nums[i], nums[i]+nums[i-1]);
            max = Math.max(max, nums[i]);
        return max;
