Solutions of Theory of Algorithms assignment Exercise 17.4-1 We might consider the hash table full in order to decrease the possibility of occurring of collisions. To insert a new element in the table, we need to implement two steps: computing the hash function, and inserting the key in the slot. As the time needed for both steps is

Unformatted text preview: constant, so amortized cost is O(1). If the table is nearly full, or the input data is repeated, the insertion function will have to search through the table for an empty slot, so the actual cost will involve the cost of the insertion plus the cost of the search which will not necessarily be O(1)....
