Example: h ( x ) = x mod 13 Insert keys 18, 41, 22, 44, 59, 32, 31, 73, in this order 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 41 18 44 59 32 22 31 73 k h(k) i 18 5 5 41 2 2 22 9 9 44 5 6 59 7 7 32 6 8 31 5 10 73 8 11 Ø

Elder - 27 - Removal with Linear Probing To address this problem, we introduce a special object, called AVAILABLE , which replaces deleted elements AVAILABLE has a null key No changes to get (k) are required. Algorithm get ( k ) i h ( k ) p 0 repeat c A [ i ] if c = Ø return null else if c.key () = k return c.element () else i ( i + 1) mod N p p + 1 until p = N return null

• 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.
