### AVL trees

We have seen that all operations depend on the depth of the tree.

We don’t want trees with nodes which have large height

This can be attained if both subtrees of each node have roughly the same height.

• AVL tree is a binary search tree where the height of the two subtrees of a node differs by at most one

• Height of a null tree is -1

AVL Tree

• Suppose an AVL tree of height h contains contains at most S(h) nodes:

• S(h) = L(h) + R(h) + 1

• L(h) is the number of nodes in left subtree

• R(h) is the number of nodes in right subtree

You have larger number of nodes if there is larger imbalance between the subtrees

This happens if one subtree has height h, another h-2

Thus, S(h) = S(h) + S(h-2) + 1

O(log N)

Searching, Complexity?

O(log N)

FindMin, Complexity?

Deletion? Insertion?

Search for the element

If it is not there, insert it in its place.

Any problem?

Insertion may imbalance the tree. Heights of two children of a node may differ by 2 after an insertion.

Tree Rotations used to restore the balance.

Nodes on the path of the inserted node.

• Let U be the node nearest to the inserted one which has an imbalance.

• insertion in the left subtree of the left child of U

• insertion in the right subtree of the left child of U

• insertion in the left subtree of the right child of U

• insertion in the right subtree of the right child of U

• Suppose, imbalance is due to an insertion in the left subtree of right child

• Single Rotation does not work!

Deletions can be done with similar rotations

FN N

S(h) h

h is O(log N)

Using this you can show that h = O(log N)
