An implicit data structure for the dictionary problem maintains n data values in the first n locations of an array in such a way that it efficiently supports the operations insert, delete and search. No information other than that in O(1) memory cells and in the input data is to be retained; and the only operations performed on the data values (other than reads and writes) are comparisons. This paper describes the Implicit B-tree, a new data structure supporting these operations in O(log B n… CONTINUE READING
