Unformatted text preview: This operation takes O ( log n ) time. Inserting into a Binomial Heap To insert() an element: Make a new heap from the single element to be inserted. Meld the new heap with the old one. To make_heap() from scratch, perform a sequence of inserts. To delete() the min/max element: The children of this element form a new binomial heap. Meld the old heap and the new one. Amortized Analysis meld() and delete() both take O(log n). We will use amortized analysis to show that insert() is constant time overall. Idea : The total number of linking operations can never be more than the number of insert operations. This means that any sequence of inserts takes constant time on average ....
