Binary search trees are one of the most fundamental data structures. While the

height of such a tree may be linear in the worst case, the average height with

respect to the uniform distribution is only logarithmic. The exact value is one

Bodo Manthey, Till Tantau

Binary search trees are a fundamental data structure and their height

plays a key role in the analysis of divide-and-conquer algorithms like

quicksort. Their worst-case height is linear; their average height,

whose exact value is one of the best-studied problems in average-case

complexity, is logarithmic. We analyze their smoothed height ...
