Hashtable are statistical tools and I need a deterministic solution. The use of merge sort isn't needed. You can use bucket sort because those are whole numbers in the range 1 to m and solve it in O (n+m )

RAM model takes O(1) to define an array with size n (the computer only needs to define the start and end pointers). It takes O(n) to reset it to zeroes. C++ IS a ram model language that's why I brought this example

Sure it can. Creating an array in size n without reseting it takes O(1). That's true for c and c++. Then you can use a very simple data structure to track which cells you've used and which are garbage
