### data science

##### Computer science; Algorithms & data structures

Data science is the study and practice of deriving intelligence from the vast stores of big data. It incorporates varying elements from mathematics, statistics, data engineering, ...

### clustering free

##### Computer science; Algorithms & data structures

When a collision resolution scheme spreads out entries in a hash table.

### relaxed balance

##### Computer science; Algorithms & data structures

When rebalancing a search tree is independent of updating the tree.

### asymptotically tight bound

##### Computer science; Algorithms & data structures

When the asymptotic complexity of an algorithm exactly matches the theoretically proved asymptotic complexity of the corresponding problem. Informally, when an algorithm solves a ...

### polynomial time

##### Computer science; Algorithms & data structures

When the execution time of a computation, m(n), is no more than a polynomial function of the problem size, n. More formally m(n) = O(n k ) where k is a constant.

### search tree property

##### Computer science; Algorithms & data structures

When the key of every node of a binary tree is larger than the key of its left child and smaller than its right child. A binary tree which has this property is a binary search ...
