In the problem description, there is a line "Note: If there are several possible values for h, the maximum one is taken as the hindex."
I cannot come up with an example that could have several possible values for h.
IMO, there is only one value for h for each example according to the definition of HIndex.
Please correct me if i'm wrong.
Thanks!
Just curious, what kind of case could have multiple possible values of h?


@Tsien I kind of agree with you on that. What do your think of it? @1337c0d3r
Let's just suppose there are two different
Hindex
a and b (a < b) then there are b of his/her N papers have at least
b
citations each, and the other N − b papers have no more thanb
citations each  then there are at least
b
of his/her N papers have at leasta
citations each (since a < b), and the are no chance that there will be otherN − a
(Nb
at most actually) papers have no more thana
citations each
 there are b of his/her N papers have at least
