Geometric Data Structures
Winter term 2019/20
We have a look at asymptotically efficient data structures, especially
data structures for geometric problems.
Among other structures,
we discuss heaps, augmented balanced binary search trees,
range trees, interval trees, priority search trees,
segment trees, and point location data structures.
Furthermore, we will discuss data structuring techniques like
making data structures (partially) persistent and
making data structures dynamic.

Basic knowledge in algorithms and data structures (such as sorting algorithms,
balanced binary search trees, lists, and stacks), asymptotic analysis using
the Big-Oh notation, and basic knowledge in computational geometry.
