  author={Alan M. Frieze and P{\'a}ll Melsted and Michael Mitzenmacher},
In this paper, we provide a polylogarithmic bound that holds with high probability on the insertion time for cuckoo hashing under the random-walk insertion method. Cuckoo hashing provides a useful methodology for building practical, high-performance hash tables. The essential idea of cuckoo hashing is to combine the power of schemes that allow multiple hash locations for an item with the power to dynamically change the location of an item among its possible locations.
