Longest Increasing Subsequence
The Longest Increasing Subsequence problem is to find a subsequence of a given sequence in which the subsequence's elements are in sorted order and in which the subsequence is as long as possible

I'm trying to implement a program for Longest Increasing Subsequence, Its giving correct output for some input patterns, But for some its giving incorrect result. Can anybody tell me where is the bug in the code.

What I have tried:

Here is my code
def binary_search(t, l, r, key):
    while (r - l > 1):
        m = l + (r - l)//2
        if (t[m]>=key):
            r = m
            l = m
    return r

def LIS():
    tailTable = [0] * N
    tailTable[0] = lst[0]
    len = 1
    for i in range(1, N):
        if (lst[i] < tailTable[0]):
            # New Smallest Value
            tailTable[0] = lst[i]
        elif (lst[i] > tailTable[len - 1]):
            # lst[i] wants to extend largest subsequence
            tailTable[len] = lst[i]
            len += 1
            # A[i] wants to be current end candidate of an existing
            # subsequence.
            tailTable[binary_search(tailTable, -1, len-1, lst[i])] = lst[i]
    return len
if __name__ == "__main__":
    N = int(input())
    lst = []
    for i in range(N):
    ret = LIS()

Give a sample input that give wrong result.

I am not fluent in Python, but you should try this:
def LIS():
    lenmax = 1
    len = 1
    for i in range(1, N):
        if (lst[i-1] < lst[i]):
            # in sequence
            len += 1
            if (len > lenmax):
                lenmax = len
            # new sequence
            len = 1
    return lenmax

@ppolymorphe That's incorrect way to compute Longest Increasing Subsequence

Can you define what is the correct way, give an example with sequence and result.
