Samples

The following are samples to see how Algorithm may be used within your applications.

Probability

Each data structure within Algorithm is equipped with probability tools.

Basic Probability

For example, determining the probability of rolling a 3 using a die of 6 numbers.

let die = [Int](arrayLiteral: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

if 0.1 < die.probability(of: 3) 
		// Do something ...
}

Conditional Probability

For conditional probabilities that require a more complex calculation, use block statements.

let die = [Int](arrayLiteral: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

let pOfX = die.probability { (number) in
	return 5 < number || 0 == number % 3
}

if 0.33 < pOfX {
	// Do something ...
}

Expected Value

The expected value of rolling a 3 or 6 with 100 trials using a die of 6 numbers.

let die = [Int](arrayLiteral: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

if 20 < die.expectedValue(trials: 100, for: 3, 6) {
		// Do something ...
}

DoublyLinkedList

The DoublyLinkedList data structure is excellent for large growing collections of data. Below is an example of its usage.

var listA = DoublyLinkedList<Int>()
        
listA.insert(atFront: 3)
listA.insert(atFront: 2)
listA.insert(atFront: 1)

var listB = DoublyLinkedList<Int>()

listB.insert(atBack: 4)
listB.insert(atBack: 5)
listB.insert(atBack: 6)

var listC = listA + listB

listC.cursorToFront()

var value = listC.cursor

while nil != value {
    // Do something ...
    
    value = listC.next()
}

Stack

The Stack data structure is a container of objects that are inserted and removed according to the last-in-first-out (LIFO) principle. Below is an example of its usage.

var stack = Stack<Int>()

stack.push(1)
stack.push(2)
stack.push(3)

while !stack.isEmpty {
	let value = stack.pop()
	
	// Do something ...
}

Queue

The Queue data structure is a container of objects that are inserted and removed according to the first-in-first-out (FIFO) principle. Below is an example of its usage.

var queue = Queue<Int>()

queue.enqueue(1)
queue.enqueue(2)
queue.enqueue(3)

while !queue.isEmpty {
    let value = queue.dequeue()

    // Do something ...
}

Deque

The Deque data structure is a container of objects that are inserted and removed according to the first-in-first-out (FIFO) and last-in-first-out (LIFO) principle. Essentially, a Deque is a Stack and Queue combined. Below are examples of its usage.

var dequeA = Deque<Int>()
dequeA.insert(atBack: 1)
dequeA.insert(atBack: 2)
dequeA.insert(atBack: 3)

while !dequeA.isEmpty {
	let value = dequeA.removeAtFront()
	
	// Do something ...
}

var dequeB = Deque<Int>()
dequeB.insert(atBack: 4)
dequeB.insert(atBack: 5)
dequeB.insert(atBack: 6)

while !dequeB.isEmpty {
	let value = dequeB.removeAtFront()
	
	// Do something ...
}

RedBlackTree

A RedBlackTree is a Balanced Binary Search Tree that maintains insert, remove, update, and search operations in a complexity of O(logn). The following implementation of a RedBlackTree also includes an order-statistic, which allows the data structure to be accessed using subscripts like an array or dictionary. RedBlackTrees may store unique keys or non-unique key values. Below is an example of its usage.

var ages = RedBlackTree<String, Int>(uniqueKeys: true)

ages.insert(value: 16, for: "Sarah")
ages.insert(value: 12, for: "Peter")
ages.insert(value: 23, for: "Alex")

let node = ages[1]

if "Peter" == node.key {
    // Do something ...
}

SortedSet

SortedSets are a powerful data structure for algorithm and analysis design. Elements within a SortedSet are unique and insert, remove, and search operations have a complexity of O(logn). The following implementation of a SortedSet also includes an order-statistic, which allows the data structure to be accessed using an index subscript like an array. Below are examples of its usage.

let setA = SortedSet<Int>(elements: 1, 2, 3)
let setB = SortedSet<Int>(elements: 4, 3, 6)
let setC = SortedSet<Int>(elements: 7, 1, 2)
let setD = SortedSet<Int>(elements: 1, 7)
let setE = SortedSet<Int>(elements: 1, 6, 7)

// Union.
setA + setB
setA.union(setB)

// Intersection.
setC.intersection(setD)

// Subset.
setD < setC
setD.isSubset(of: setC)

// Superset.
setD > setC
setD.isSuperset(of: setC)

// Contains.
setE.contains(setA.first!)

// Probability.
setE.probability(of: setA.first!, setA.last!)

SortedMultiSet

A SortedMultiSet is identical to a SortedSet, except that a SortedMultiSet allows non-unique elements. Look at SortedSet for examples of its usage.

SortedDictionary

A SortedDictionary is a powerful data structure that maintains a sorted set of keys with value pairs. Keys within a SortedDictionary are unique and insert, remove, update, and search operations have a complexity of O(logn).

SortedMultiDictionary

A SortedMultiDictionary is identical to a SortedDictionary, except that a SortedMultiDictionary allows non-unique keys. Below is an example of its usage.

struct Student {
    var name: String
}

let sarah = Student(name: "Sarah")
let peter = Student(name: "Peter")
let alex = Student(name: "Alex")

var students = SortedMultiDictionary<String, Student>()

students.insert(value: sarah, for: sarah.name)
students.insert(value: peter, for: peter.name)
students.insert(value: alex, for: alex.name)

for student in students {
    // Do something ...
}
