  1. Binary Trees Computer Science and Engineering B.Ramamurthy

  2. Introduction • We studied linked list is a dynamic linear data structure. • It is dynamic since it supports efficient addition and deletion of items. • It is linear since it is sequential and each element in it has exactly one successor. • A tree is nonlinear data structure. • Each element may have more than one successor. • Can be static or dynamic. B.Ramamurthy

  3. Topics for Discussion • Elements of a tree • Examples of trees • Binary Tree Definition • Types of binary trees • Contiguous (static) representation • Dynamic representation B.Ramamurthy

  4. Terminology • Trees are used to represent relationships: items in a tree are referred to as nodes and the lines connecting the nodes that express the hierarchical relationship are referred to as edges. • The edges in a tree are directed. • Trees are hierarchical which means that a parent-child relationship exist between the nodes in the tree. • Each node has at most one parent. The node with no parents is the root node. • The nodes that have no successors (no children nodes) are known as leaf nodes. • Lets look at some examples and identify the various elements. B. Ramamurthy

  5. Examples • Family ancestor tree • Directory of files organization in your computer system • Parse tree • Languages are defined using grammar • Grammars are specified using rules or syntax • Syntax is expressed using a notation called Backaus-Naur Form (BNF) (John Backus and Peter Naur) • Expression trees • Game trees B.Ramamurthy

  7. BNF for a Language • BNF notation includes nonterminals and terminals. • Terminals are literals or particular symbols. • Nonterminals are general expressions that can be substituted with terminals and nonterminals. Grammar rules specify the definition of a nonterminal. Nonterminals are enclosed with angle brackets <nonterminal> • Symbols used in construction include ::= (defines), | (or) and other common operators. B.Ramamurthy

  8. BNF for a Java Statement <statement> ::= <selection-stmt> | <other-stmt> <selection-stmt> ::= if (<expr>) <statement> else <statement> <expr>::= <relational-expr>|<assign-expr>|<identifier> <relational-expr> ::= <expr> <rel-op> <expr> <assign-expr> ::= <expr> = <expr> B.Ramamurthy

  9. Parse tree <statement> <selection-stmt> if ( <expr> ) <statement> else <statement> … <expr> <relational-expr> <expr> <expr> <rel-op> …. A major task of the compiler is to construct a parse tree from the input program and verify it is correct. <identifier> <identifier> < b a B.Ramamurthy

  12. Binary Tree • A binary tree can be defined recursively as follows. It is either • empty, or • consists of a root node together with left and right trees, both of which are binary trees. B.Ramamurthy

  16. Characteristics of trees • A path is a sequence of nodes n1, n2, ..., nk such that node ni is the parent of node ni+1 for all 1 <= i <= k. • The length of a path is the number of edges on the path. • The height of a node is the length of the longest path from the node to a leaf. • The height of tree is the height of its root. • The level of a node is the length of the path from the root to the node. B.Ramamurthy

  17. Full Binary Tree • A full binary tree is a tree in which each node has exactly zero or two non-empty children. All leaves are at the same level. • A complete binary tree in which all the leaf nodes are in level n or n-1 and all leaves on the level n are filled from left to right. • There are some interesting properties that arise out of this definition. • Lets look at some examples to illustrate the various definitions.
