Trees Data Structures for Beginners. Self-balanced Binary Search Trees. Appendix I: Analysis of Recursive Algorithms. Click on the name to go the section or click on the runtime to go the implementation. Note: Binary search trees and trees, in general, will be cover in the next post. Also, graph data structures. Primitive data types are the most basic elements where all the other data structures are built upon. Some primitives are:. Arrays are collections of zero or more elements.

Arrays are one of the most used data structure because of its simplicity and fast way of retrieving information. When you want to search for something you can go directly to the bin number. However, if you forgot what cabinet had, then you will have to open one by one O n to verify its content until you find what you are looking for. That same happens with an array. Depending on the programming language, arrays have some differences. For some dynamic languages like JavaScript and Ruby, an array can contain different data types: numbers, strings, words, objects, and even functions. In JavaScript, it would automatically increase the size of the array when needed.

For instance, in JavaScript, we can accomplish append to end with push and append to the beginning with unshift. But also, we have pop and shift to remove from an array. There are multiple ways to insert elements into an array. You can append new data to end, or you can add it to the beginning of the collection. Based on the language specification , push just set the new value at the end of the array.

What do you think is the runtime of the insertToHead function? Looks the same as the previous one except that we are using unshift instead of push. So, it will iterate through all the elements. If you know the index for the element that you are looking for, then you can access the element directly like this:. Then you have to iterate through each element on the array until we find what we are looking for.

## Guide to Map Reading for Beginners

Then we use the JS built-in splice function which has a running time of O n. Maps, dictionaries, and associative arrays all describe the same abstract data type. But hash map implementations are distinct from tree map implementations in that one uses a hash table and one uses a binary search tree.

In this example, if you are looking for the DSA. Search time goes from O n to O 1. In arrays, the data is referenced using a numeric index relatively to the position. However, HashMaps uses labels that could be a string, number, object or anything. Internally, the HashMap uses an Array, and it maps the labels to array indexes using a hash function.

### Get A Copy

The most common implementation of Maps is using an array and hash function. As you can see in the image, each key gets translated into a hash code. Since the array size is limited e. Now, What do you think about covering each of the HashMap components in details? Why go through the trouble of converting the key into an index and not using an array directly you might ask. You have to know where your data is. How would you implement that? What is the runtime of approach 1 using two arrays?

If we say, the number of words in the text is n. Then we have to search if the word in the array A and then increment the value on array B matching that index. This double loop leave use with a runtime of O n 2. What is the runtime of approach 2 using a HashMap? Well, we iterate through each word on the text once and increment the value if there is something there or set it to 1 if that word is seen for the first time.

The runtime would be O n which is much more performant than approach 1. The first step to implement a HashMap is to have a hash function. This function will map every key to its value. The perfect hash function is the one that for every key it assigns a unique index. You might have the case where two different keys yields on the same index. This is called collision. Collisions in HashMaps are unavoidable when using an array-like underlying data structure. One way to deal with collisions is to store multiple values in the same bucket using a linked list or another array more on this later.

However, in most implementations, the hash adjusts the size dynamically to avoid too many collisions. So, we can say that the amortized lookup time is O 1. We are going to explain what we mean by amortized runtime later on this post with an example. We have an initial capacity of 2 two buckets. But, we want to store any number of elements on them. Take a look at our hash function in line We are going to talk about it in a bit.

This Map allow us to set a key and a value and then get the value using a key. Both cat and dog will overwrite each other on the position 3 of the array bucket 1. We want to have an initial capacity that is well beyond what we need to fit.

Because rat and art are both , collision! We also can change the initial capacity of the array to minimize collisions. This DecentHashMap gets the job done, but, there are still some issues. However, we have two values in bucket 0 and two more in bucket 1. How is that possible? So, even if the hash code is different, all values will fit on the size of the array: bucket 0 or bucket 1.

So naturally we have increased the initial capacity but by how much? If we have an initial capacity of 1. As you can see, we reduced the number of collisions from 2 to 1 by increasing the initial capacity of the hash map. Having a bigger bucket size is excellent to avoid collisions, but it consumes too much memory , and probably most of the buckets will be unused.

However, how do we know how big a hash map capacity should big?

### What’s the Traveler Card?

A million? Having allocated massive amounts of memory is impractical. So, what we can do is to have the hash map automatically resize itself based on a load factor. This operation is called Rehash. The load factor is the measurement of how full is a hash map. We can get the load factor by dividing the number of items by the bucket size.

Pay special attention to the lines 96 to We basically create a new HashMap with doubled capacity. Take notice that after we add the 12th item, the load factor gets beyond 0. Also, you can see how the number of collisions improves from 2 to 0! We have a decent hash function that produces different output for different data. Two distinct data will never return the same code. Also, we have a rehash function that automatically grows the capacity as needed. Inserting an element on a HashMap requires two things: a key and a value.

We could use our DecentHashMap data structure that we develop or use the built-in as follows:. Also, Map s keeps the order of insertion. Behind the scenes, the Map. So, similar to Array. Insert an element in HashMap runtime is O 1. If rehash is needed, then it will take O n. Our implementation with rehash functionality will keep collisions to the minimum. This is the HashMap. But, we know there will be collisions. If the initial capacity is too small and the hash function is terrible like NaiveHashMap. HashMap access operation has a runtime of O 1 on average and worst-case of O n.

Advanced Note: Another idea to reduce the time to get elements from O n to O log n is to use a binary search tree instead of an array. Editing HashMap. In the case of many collisions, we could face an O n as a worst case. However, with our rehash operation, we can mitigate that risk. HashMap edits and delete operations has a runtime of O 1 on average and worst-case of O n.

How can we implement a Set array without duplicates? Well, we could use an array and check if an element is there before inserting a new one. But the running time of checking if an element is already there is O n. Can we do better than that? We develop the Map that has an amortized run time of O 1! We could use the JavaScript built-in Set. We are going to use the optimized HashMap with rehash functionality. We used HashMap. We use the key as the value, and since hash maps keys are unique we are all set.

Checking if an element is already there can be done using the hashMap. The most operations would be an amortized constant time except for getting the entries which is O n.

## MAP OF METAL

Note: The JS built-in Set. You can see the Set. You should be able to use MySet and the built-in Set interchangeably for these examples. From our Set implementation using a HashMap we can sum up the time complexity as follows very similar to the HashMap :. The linked list is the first data structure that we are going to implement without using an array. Instead, we are going to use a node which holds a value and points to the next element.

When we have a chain of nodes where each one points to the next one we a Singly Linked list.

For a singly linked list, we only have to worry about every element having a reference to the next one. If it is the first element, then adding to the root is O 1. However, finding the last item is O n. Now, removing an element from the end of the list has similar code. A great trip with crew of 2 together with me and the wife. The boat could easily take 8 passanger but if you're 3 you will get the most value for your money. The crew were very skilled an found us some game.

Not the Dear Guest, We thank you for your comment, and as you mentioned we tried our level best, but this is a game and we will surely be happy to see you again The trip was organized by Andy a fellow hotel guest and it was booked through McCloud who works on the beach and who organizes trips everywhere on the island. Andy had already caught a Marlin before so he let me go first, What a complete Had a fantastic day out on this boat.

Had a Wahoo tuna and fantastic blue marlin. Me and my wife love to try new adventures. Fishing was on the list and TBH we feel very lucky to have experienced it with John and the team at Mao. Thank you so so much for the adventure and the fish we caught. Captain Jean picked us up from our hotel at am and we were on the boat by fishing off the East Coast from Trou d'eau Douce. The boat is 42 ft and well equipped with 3 chairs at the back. We fished with We had a fantastic trip out with the crew and my husband caught a kg black marlin and we also caught tuna and bonita.

Crew was extremely professional, friendly and had the experience of a lifetime with them. Highly recommended. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
