Parallel computation on 2-3-trees. (English) Zbl 0531.68017

Summary: Our model of computation is a parallel computer with k synchronized processors \(P_ 1,...,P_ k\) sharing a common random access storage, where simultaneous access to the same storage location by two or more processors is not allowed. Suppose a 2-3 tree T with n leaves is implemented in the storage, suppose \(a_ 1,...,a_ k\) are data that may or may not be stored in the leaves, suppose \(a_ 1\leq...\leq a_ k\) and for all i processor \(P_ i\) knows \(a_ i\). We show how to search for \(a_ 1,...,a_ k\) in the tree T, how to insert these data into the tree and how to delete them from the tree in 0 (log n\(+\log k)\) steps.
