The height of list-tries and TST. (English) Zbl 1192.68945
2007 Conference on analysis of algorithms, AofA 07. Papers from the 13th Conference held in Juan-les-Pins, France, June 17–22, 2007. Nancy: The Association Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Science (DMTCS). 247-258, electronic only (2007).
Summary: We characterize the asymptotics of heights of the trees of Briandais (1959) and the ternary search trees of Bentley (1997). Our proof is based on a new analysis of the structure of tries that distinguishes the bulk of the tree, called the core, and the long trees hanging down the core, called the spaghettis.
