I want to clear a BST so as to take advantage of the garbage collector. So, to clear a BST, is it sufficient to set the root to null, so that I end up with a bunch of abandoned nodes with no pointers to them? Or is it better to...

Once I was interviewed by "One well known company" and the interviewer asked me to find the median of BST. int median(treeNode* root) { } I started to implement the first brute-force solution that I came up with. I fill all the data into a std::vector<int> with inorder traversal (to...

I'm fairly new to c++ and I've recently received a project to create my own Binary Search Tree using a Template. The goal is for the Binary Tree to be able to take in any kind of data type. IntBinaryTree.h should be able to take in object of EmployeeInfo. I've...

According to Ron Wein your able to do split and concatenation of red-black tree's in O(log(n)) time. See his artikle: Efficient Implementation of Red-Black Trees with Split and Catenate Operations However I'm still not convinced that the running time of split really is true. The idea is that split uses...

Assume I had some binary search tree that worked and declared two like this: BinaryTree<string, queue<int> > * tree1 = new BinaryTree<string, queue<int>>; BinaryTree<string, int> * tree2 = new BinaryTree<string, int >; And lets say for the second one this worked perfectly: tree2->Add("Yoyo", 10); How would you add values to...

I've search around SOF for a while and read similar post. I didn't find any of those answers satisfactory. The issue i'm having is that I want to traverse a tree until 'the root node' and a target node are the same. If the 'root' == target, I want to...

I have a scheme function where I have a list and I am trying to put the numbers into a Binary Search Tree one by one. However, I keep getting "unspecified return value" (define (insertB L) (if (not (null? L)) (begin (let() BST (insert (car L) BST)) (insertB (cdr L))...

It is kind of like a hybrid tree/linked list structure. Here's how I defined the structure struct node { nodeP sibling; nodeP child; nodeP parent; char name[100]; }; a node has a child, that is connected to a linked list. Other elements on the linked list may have their...

What are the uses of heaps? Whatever a heap can do can also be done by a self-balancing binary search tree like an AVL tree. The most common use of heap is to find the minimum (or maximum) element in O(1) time (which is always the root). This functionality can...

I want to insert, delete and print strings in this BST using a public method, as opposed to a boolean or void - so I have to return. In my insert method I am trying to check for null, and left and right sides of the tree. In the case...

So I want to find the parent node of a Node in a binary tree. Suppose that I input 30,15,17,45,69,80,7 in the tree through a text file. The tree should be 30 15 45 7 17 69 80 And here is my code : Node* BST::searchforparentnode(Node* pRoot, int value) {...
