# Least difference in array

## Problem

Find the least difference between any two elements of an integer array.

## Solution

First we can sort the elements of the array. Then we can iterate over the array and find difference between consecutive elements. The least of them would be the least differences between any two elements of the array. The complexity will be O(nlogn) because of the sorting step.

## Code

import java.util.Arrays; public class LeastDifference { public static void main(String[] args) { int[]arr={64,57,2,78,43,73,53,86}; Arrays.sort(arr); int minDiff=Integer.MAX_VALUE; for(int i=0;i < arr.length-1;++i) { int diff=Math.abs(arr[i]-arr[i+1]); if(diff < minDiff) minDiff=diff; } System.out.println(minDiff); } }
