# Longest Increasing Subsequence

## Problem Statement

Given a number sequence, find the length of its Longest Increasing Subsequence (LIS). In an increasing subsequence, all the elements are in increasing order (from lowest to highest).

**Example 1:**

```
Input: {4,2,3,6,10,1,12}
Output: 5
Explanation: The LIS is {2,3,6,10,12}.
```

**Example 1:**

```
Input: {-4,10,3,7,15}
Output: 4
Explanation: The LIS is {-4,3,7,15}.
```

**Constraints:**

`1 <= nums.length <= 2500`

- -10<sup>4</sup> <= nums[i] <= 10<sup>4</sup>
