Example Key Probability a 0.8 b 0.1 c 0.1 a < b < c Cost = 0.8 * 2 + 0.1 * 1 + 0.1 * 2 = 1.9 Cost = 0.8 * 1 + 0.1 * 2 + 0.1 * 3 = 1.2

Search Types Successful. Search for a key that is in the dictionary. Terminates at an internal node. Unsuccessful. Search for a key that is not in the dictionary. Terminates at an external/failure node. f 0 a b c f 1 f 2 f 3

Internal And External Nodes A binary tree with n internal nodes has n + 1 external nodes. Let s 1 , s 2 , …, s n be the internal nodes, in inorder. key(s 1 ) < key(s 2 ) < … < key(s n ) . Let key(s 0 ) = –infinity and key(s n+1 ) = infinity . Let f 0 , f 1 , …, f n be the external nodes, in inorder. f i is reached iff key(s i ) < search key < key(s i+1 ) . f 0 a b c f 1 f 2 f 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
