    Binomial Heaps

  • In this Lecture

    Binomial Trees Definition properties Binomial Heaps efficient merging Implementation Operations About Midterm

  • Binary Heaps

    Binary heap is a data structure that allows insert in O(log n) deleteMin in O(log n) findMin in O(1) How about merging two heaps complexity is O(n) So we discuss a data structure that allows merge in O(log n)

  • Applications of Heaps

    Binary Heaps efficient findMin, deleteMin many applications Binomial Heaps Efficient merge of two heaps Merging two heap based data structures Binomial Heap is build using a structure called Binomial Trees

  • Binomial Trees

    A Binomial Tree Bk of order k is defined as follows B0 is a tree with one node Bk is a pair of Bk-1 trees, where root of one Bk-1 becomes the left most child of the other (for all k 1)





  • Merging two binomial trees

    Merging two equal binomial trees of order j



    New tree has order j + 1

  • Properties of Binomial trees

    The following properties hold for a binomial tree of order k Bk has 2k nodes The height of Bk is k Bk has kCi nodes at level i for i = 0,1,k The root of Bk has k-children B0, B1, Bk-1 (in that order) where the ith child is a binomial tree of order i. If binomial tree of order k has n nodes, then k log n

  • Proofs

    Lemma 1: BK has 2k nodes

    Proof: (by induction). True for k=0, assume true for k=r. Consider Br+1

    Br+1 has 2r + 2r = 2r+1 nodes

    Lemma 2: Bk has height k

    Proof: homework

    Lemma 3: Bk has kCi nodes at level i for i = 0,1,k

    Proof: Let T(k,i) be the number of nodes at depth i. Then T(k,i) = T(k-1,i) + T(k-1,i-1)

    = k-1Ci + k-1Ci-1 = kCi

  • Binomial Heap

    Binomial Heap is a collection of binomial trees that satisfies the following properties No two binomial trees in the collection have the same size Each node in the collection has a key Each binomial tree in the collection satisfies the heap order property Roots of the binomial trees are connected and are in increasing order

  • Example

    A binomial heap of n=15 nodes containing B0, B1, B2 and B3 binomial trees

    What is the connection between n and the binomial trees in the heap?

  • Lemma

    Given any integer n, there exists a binomial heap that contain n nodes


  • implementation

  • Implementation Binomial Tree Node

    Fields in a binomial tree node Key number of children (or degree) Left most child Right most sibling A pointer P to parent

  • Implementation Binomial Heap






  • Operations

  • Operations on Binomial Heaps

    Merge is the key operation on binomial heaps merge() insert() findMin() find the min of all children O(log n) deleteRoot() deleteNode() decreaseKey()

  • Merging two binomial heaps

    Suppose H1 and H2 are two binomial heaps Merge H1 and H2 into a new heap H Algorithm: Let A and B be pointers to H1 and H2 for all orders i If there is one order i tree, merge it to H If there are two order i trees, merge them into a new tree of order i+1 and store them in a temp tree T If there are three order i trees in H1,H2 and T, merge two of them, store as T and add the remainder to H

  • Example

  • Binary Heap Operations

    Insert make a new heap H0 with the new node Merge(H0, H) FindMin min is one of the children connected to the root cost is O(log n)

  • Binary Heap Operations

    DeleteRoot() Find the tree with the given root Split the heap into two heaps H1 and H2

  • Binary Heap Operations

    DeleteRoot() ctd.. Rearrange binomial trees in heap H2 Merge the two heaps



  • Example

  • DeleteNode()

    To delete a node, decrease its key to -, percolate up to root, then delete the root

    DecreaseKey(): Decrease the key and percolate up until heap order property is satisfied

  • Summary

    Two heaps Binary Heaps deleteMin() Binomial Heaps mergeHeaps()
