Definition—Version 1 A binary tree. Each node v has a point v.pt and two lists v.left and v.right . u.pt < v.pt for nodes u in left subtree of v . u.pt > v.pt for nodes u in right subtree of v . So, it is a binary search tree on pt .

Definition—Version 1 Intervals with r i < v.pt are stored in the left subtree of v . Intervals with l i > v.pt are stored in the right subtree of v . Intervals with l i <= v.pt <= r i are stored in v . v.left has these intervals sorted by l i . v.right has these intervals sorted by r i .

    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.
