Chapter 06Compiled by: Dr. Mohammad Omar AlhawaratTrees1Definition of TreeA tree is a set of linked nodes, such that there is one and only one path from a unique node (called the root node) to every other node in the tree

2Hierarchical OrganizationExample: File Directories

33Tree TerminologyNodes at a given level are children of nodes of previous levelNode with children is the parent node of those childrenNodes with same parent are siblingsNode with no children is a leaf nodeThe only node with no parent is the root nodeAll others have one parent each44Example of a Tree A C B D E F Groot5Example of a Tree A C B D E F GrootIn a tree, every pair of linked nodes have a parent-child relationship (the parent is closer to the root)6Example of a Tree (Cont.) A C B D E F GrootFor example, C is a parent of G7Example of a Tree (Cont.) A C B D E F GrootE and F are children of D8Example of a Tree (Cont.) A C B D E F GrootThe root node is the only node that has no parent.9Example of a Tree (Cont.) A C B D E F GrootLeaf nodes (or leaves for short) have no children.10Subtrees A B C I K D E F J G HsubtreerootA subtree is a part of a tree that is a tree in itself11Subtrees (Cont.)

B D Hroot I A E J K C F L G21Full Binary Trees B D Hroot I A E J K C F L M G N OA full binary tree is also a complete binary tree.22The formula for the maximum number of nodes is derived from the fact that each node can have only two descendants. Given a height of the binary tree, H, the maximum number of nodes in the full binary tree is given as follows:

Full Binary Trees (Cont.)23To Assure that a binary tree is Balanced one the following algorithms is used:

AVL Trees.Red-Black Trees.2-3 Trees and the general case (B-Trees)B-Trees are used with Fetching data from Large Databases.Balanced Binary Trees24Binary TreesA binary tree is either empty or has the following form

Where Tleft and Tright are binary trees

2525Binary TreesEvery nonleaf in a full binary tree has exactly two childrenA complete binary tree is full to its next-to-last levelLeaves on last level filled from left to rightThe height of a binary tree with n nodes that is either complete or full is log2(n + 1)


Binary Trees2727A tree is a set of nodes that either:is empty orhas a designated node, called the root, from which hierarchically descend zero or more subtrees, which are also trees.Recursive definition of a tree28Recursive definition of a tree (Cont.)

3434Tree Traversal (Cont.)Inorder traversal: visit root between visiting the subtrees

3535Tree Traversal (Cont.)Postorder traversal: visit root after visiting the subtrees

These are examples of a depth-first traversal.3636Tree Traversal (Cont.)Level-order traversal: begin at the root, visit nodes one level at a time

This is an example of a breadth-first traversal.3737Tree Traversals Example 1

41Examples of Binary TreesExpression Trees

4242Example: Expression TreesStore expressions in a binary treeLeaves of tree are operands (e.g., constants, variables)Other internal nodes are unary or binary operatorsUsed by compilers to parse and evaluate expressionsArithmetic, logic, etc.E.g., (a + b * c)+((d * e + f) * g)434343

43Cpt S 223Washington State UniversityTree Traversal - SummaryLevel order traversal is sometimes called breadth-first.The other traversals are called depth-first.Traversal takes (n) in both breadth-first and depth-first.Memory usage in a perfect tree is (log n) in depth-first and (n) in breadth-first traversal.4444Questions?Questions ?4545
