Motivation
 What ?
 Why ?
 How ?
Tree (Data structure)
 Used to represent hierarchal relationship
between data elements.
 Tree as a data structure is used to
organize our data in an specific order
and has great importance in computer
science.
Simple Tree
 Tree
 Nodes

##  A node can have at most one parent

 Binary tree
 Tree with 0–2 children per node

## Tree Binary Tree

 Terminology
 Root ⇒ no parent
 Leaf ⇒ no child

 Interior ⇒ non-leaf

Root node

## Interior nodes Height

Leaf nodes
Binary Tree
 A binary tree is either empty, or it consists of
a node called the root together with two binary
trees called the left sub-tree and the right sub-
tree of the root.
 A node cannot have more than two sub-trees

## but less than two.

 If a new node is greater than its parent it goes

## to right side and if less to left side.

A Binary Tree Model
Memory Model of Binary
Tree
 In the implementation of binary trees the
child’s of a node are pointed by two
pointers and data is stored in the object
itself.
Binary Search Trees
 Key property
 Value at node
 Smaller values in left subtree
 Larger values in right subtree

 Example
X >Y X
X < Z

Y Z

Importance of Trees
 Representing Algebraic formulas
 Searching large and dynamic lists
 Supports Very effective searching
technique using binary search.
 Trees are used to organize databases and
file systems.
 Unix or DOS/Windows file system
Spanning of Trees
 The process of inserting new data elements
in tree data structure is called spanning of
tree.
 How to build & maintain binary trees?
 Insertion
 Deletion

##  Maintain key property (invariant)

 Smaller values in left subtree
 Larger values in right subtree
Binary Search Tree –
Insertion
 Algorithm
1. Perform search for value X
2. Search will end at node Y (if X not in tree)
3. If X < Y, insert new leaf X as new left
subtree for Y
4. If X > Y, insert new leaf X as new right
subtree for Y
Example Insertion
 Insert ( 20 )
10 10 < 20, right
30 > 20, left
5 30
25 > 20, left
2 25 45 Insert 20 on left

Binary Search Tree –
Deletion
 Algorithm
1. Perform search for value X
2. If X is a leaf, delete X
3. Else
a) Replace with largest value Y on left subtree
OR smallest value Z on right
subtree
b) Delete replacement value (Y or Z) from
subtree
Example Deletion (Leaf)
 Delete ( 25 )
10 10
10 < 25, right
5 30 30 > 25, left 5 30
25 = 25, delete
2 25 45 2 45
Example Deletion (Internal
Node)
 Delete ( 10 ) Delete ( 5 ) Delete ( 5 )
10 5 5

5 30 5 30 2 30

2 25 45 2 25 45 2 25 45

## Replacing 10 Replacing 5 Deleting leaf

Binary Tree Traversal
 How to reach our required node.
 Standard Traversal Orders

1. Preorder NLR
2. Inorder LNR

3. Postorder LRN
 Very Easy by using recursion. We have to

## follow three steps recursively for each node.

PreOrder Traversal
 The algorithm of PreOrder traversal is
following:
 Recursive Definition

## 3. Traverse the right subtree of R in

InOrder Traversal
 The algorithm of InOrder traversal is
following:
 Recursive Definition

## 1. Traverse the left subtree of R in Inorder

2. Process the root R

## 3. Traverse the right subtree of R in Inorder
