### Calculating number of inversions in array using AVL Finger Tree

I think there is something wrong with the definition of $TreeRank(x)$. Shouldn't it be define as the position of $x$ among the inserted items in the tree and not $A$ entirely? Otherwise, it will not ...

### If inorder traversal of a tree is in ascending order will the tree definitely be a BST?

Yes, another way is to think about the In-order Traversal. You go Left-Root-Right. Well a property of BST is the left node is less than Root and right node is greater than Root. By going in the ...

### n points in 2d plane and a method(a,b) that returns all points closer to 0 than (a,b)

This is equivalent to finding all the points in a query half-plane, which has a cute, non-obvious solution in terms of convex layers, using fractional cascading to speed up moving from layer to layer.

### Why does the formula floor((i-1)/2) find the parent node in a binary heap?

If you look at the indices of nodes in a binary heap, left child index is always an odd number, and right is always even. e.g. ...

### A nearest neighbor data structure for meshes

It suffices to store all of the triangles from all of the meshes in a nearest-neighbor data structure for triangles. Then, given a point P, find the nearest triangle, check which mesh that triangle ...

### Looking for the English name of algorithm using a precomputed array for interval sum computation

The correct term is Prefix Sum. See e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prefix_sum

### Given a permutation of n integers, how fast can a corresponding Standard Young's Tableau be created?

I believe that no faster algorithm is known, at least if you are interested in computing both tableaux. Dan Romik shows in his paper The Number of Steps in the Robinson-Schensted Algorithm that on ...

### Dictionary with sets as keys where lookup can be set intersection

My understanding: You might have three values in the table with keys (a, b), (a, c), (b, c). When you lookup (d, e, c) you want the values for the keys (a, c) and (b, c) containing a “c”. First you ...

### Dictionary with sets as keys where lookup can be set intersection

Unfortunately, no, this isn't achievable (at least not if you want to handle arbitrary sets as keys). The reason is simple: if $N$ denotes the number of elements in a key set, then it takes $O(N)$ ...
Levels by levels, the indexes of a binary heap are $$0\\1\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 2\\3\ \ \ \ \ \ 4\ \ \ \ \ \ 5\ \ \ \ \ \ 6\\7\ 8\ 9\ 10\,11\,12\,13\,14\\\cdots$$ and it is rather clear that the ...
