 It tries to come up with numbering schemes for trees that change a lot, because that is the weak spot of the numberting scheme. <<

I just let my ACM membership lapse! Oh well, maybe I can find a copy somewhere.

My approach to this problem in the nested set model is to use large gaps in the (lft,rgt) pair numbering instead of incrementing them. This trick destroys the property that (rgt - left +1)/2 = size of subtree rooted at this node, however.
I sitll need to test various formulas for computig the size of the gaps. Received on Wed Jul 31 2002 - 03:18:40 CEST
