Fascinating read, Elfprince13, good to know that there's still advances to be made even the algorithms thought to be the most optimized.
Saw this elsewhere first, but a good read. I'm somewhat surprised that it hadn't occurred to anyone to try to improve locality of reference in a heap in such a way before.. it really is quite similar to a B-tree that follows heap ordering.
Very interesting read, tis a shame I understood very little of it, I'll have to bookmark it for next year when I get to some more indepth programing courses.
hmm... interesting...

unfortunately for me though... it raised more questions than what it answered... Sad

Well, like what? I'm sure any of us that have a decent knowledge of the subject would be sure to answer well-reasoned and researched questions. Smile
Cool! Always nice to know that not even the "most optimized" routines are always the best.

True story. If this wasn't the case, then technology fields would be no fun to work in. The whole calculator community, for example, is based on doing more and more with among the most limited hardware platform still commercially sold.
