Data Structures and Algorithms


Implementing a Threaded Binary Trees

One of the common operations on a binary tree is traversal. In a linked representation of a binary tree, traversal is usually implemented through recursion. As a result, a stack is maintained in the memory. If the tree is huge, implementing recursion to traverse the tree would require a lot of memory space. In the absence of sufficient memory space, implementing recursion can lead to a memory leak.

Session 14

Data Structures and Algorithms


Defining Threaded Binary Trees

In such a case, it would be good if you have some mechanism by which you can traverse the tree without implementing recursion. You can solve this problem by implementing a threaded binary tree. In a binary search tree, there are many nodes that have an empty left child or empty right child or both. You can utilize these fields in such a way so that the empty left child of a node points to its inorder predecessor and empty right child of the node points to its inorder successor.

How do you identify a root node in a threaded binary tree?

Answer:
In a threaded binary tree, the root node is identified as the left child of the header node. If the tree is empty, the left child of the header node becomes a thread pointing to itself.

How is the structure of a node of a threaded binary tree different from that of a normal binary tree?

Answer:
Each node in a threaded binary tree holds two extra pieces of information known as left thread and right thread. The value of these two fields indicates whether the left/right child field of a node contains a link to a child node or a thread to its inorder predecessor/successor.

Insert an algorithm to locate the position inserting a newto be Write operation refers to the process of of a new node node at its appropriatebinary tree. inserted in a threaded position. To implement an insert operation in a threaded binary tree, you first need to locate the position for the new node to be inserted. For this, you first need to implement a search operation.

Summary

In this session, you learned that:


Binary search trees can be used to implement indexing. A threaded binary tree is a binary tree in which a node with an empty left child stores the address of its inorder predecessor and the empty right child stores the address of its inorder successor. In a threaded binary tree, the left and right child field of a node, which holds the address of its inorder predecessor and inorder successor, respectively, is called a thread. You can traverse a threaded binary tree without implementing recursion. A threaded binary tree is represented as the left subtree of the header node.

Summary (Contd.)

In contrast to a normal binary tree, each node in a threaded binary tree consists of two additional fields to keep track of whether the left and right child field of a node is a thread or a link.
