Root is a level 0, childis at level(parent) + 1.

Depth/height of a treeis the length of the longest path.level 0

Many tree processingalgorithms are bestwritten recursively.#binary treeEach node has two successorsone called the left childone called the right childleft child and/or right child may be emptyA binary tree is either - empty or - consists of a root and two binary trees, one called the left subtree and one called the right subtree#binary tree density (shape)a binary tree of depth n is complete ifflevels 1 .. n have all possible nodes filled-inlevel 1: 1level 2: 2level 3: 4level n: ?nodes at level n occupy the leftmost positionsmax nodes level at n: 2n-1max nodes in binary tree of depth n: 2n-1depth of binary tree with k nodes: >floor[log2 k]depth of binary tree with k nodes: subtree.root)Insert_aux (subtree.left, item) // try insert on right Else already in treeJust keep moving down the tree#deletion casesitem to be deleted is in a leaf nodepointer to its node (in parent) must be changed to NULLitem to be deleted is in a node with one empty subtreepointer to its node (in parent) must be changed to the non-empty subtreeitem to be deleted is in a node with two non-empty subtrees#31the easy cases362042122439452140Just prune itJust set its parent (42) to skip this node#32the hard case362042122439452140#33
