Programming Assignment # 1 Posted on Mon, Apr 25, due Mon, May 9 CS 130A Data Struc & Alg Hashing is very useful if we are only interested in insert , delete , and find operations; e.g., delete (10) or insert (5) or find (100) . But a hash table provides no assistance for searches that depend on the order or rank of an element in a set, e.g., find the smallest element, delete the largest element, etc. For the latter type of operation, heaps are more appropriate. On the other hand heaps do not support a general delete operation, e.g., delete (100) ; they only support deleting the min element. In this programming assignment, you will develop a “compound” data structure called Quash , which is composed of both a max-heap (priority queue) and a hash table! The Quash supports inserts, delete and lookup using its hash component, and deleteMax using its heap component. In particular, each element in the set will be inserted in both the heap and the hash table. You will

    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.
