Leetcode 232. Implement Queue using Stacks

Monotonic stack

Monotonic stack is used to find the next lager element in an array. Vice verser.

Stack<Integer> stack = new Stack<>();
Map<Integer, Integer> nextGreaterMap = new HashMap();

for(int i = 0; i < nums2.length; i++){
  while(!stack.isEmpty() && stack.peek() < nums2[i]){
    nextGreaterMap.put(stack.pop(), nums2[i]); //pop all element smaller than the current one.
