0235.lowest-common-ancestor-of-a-binary-search-tree

binary search tree

Given a binary search tree (BST), find the lowest common ancestor (LCA) of two given nodes in the BST.

According to the definition of LCA on Wikipedia: “The lowest common ancestor is defined between two nodes p and q as the lowest node in T that has both p and q as descendants (where we allow a node to be a descendant of itself).”

Given binary search tree:  root = [6,2,8,0,4,7,9,null,null,3,5]


 

Example 1:

Input: root = [6,2,8,0,4,7,9,null,null,3,5], p = 2, q = 8
Output: 6
Explanation: The LCA of nodes 2 and 8 is 6.
Example 2:

Input: root = [6,2,8,0,4,7,9,null,null,3,5], p = 2, q = 4
Output: 2
Explanation: The LCA of nodes 2 and 4 is 2, since a node can be a descendant of itself according to the LCA definition.
 

Note:

All of the nodes' values will be unique.
p and q are different and both values will exist in the BST.
给定一个二叉搜索树, 找到该树中两个指定节点的最近公共祖先。

百度百科中最近公共祖先的定义为:“对于有根树 T 的两个结点 p、q,最近公共祖先表示为一个结点 x,满足 x 是 p、q 的祖先且 x 的深度尽可能大(一个节点也可以是它自己的祖先)。”

例如,给定如下二叉搜索树:  root = [6,2,8,0,4,7,9,null,null,3,5]



 

示例 1:

输入: root = [6,2,8,0,4,7,9,null,null,3,5], p = 2, q = 8
输出: 6 
解释: 节点 2 和节点 8 的最近公共祖先是 6。
示例 2:

输入: root = [6,2,8,0,4,7,9,null,null,3,5], p = 2, q = 4
输出: 2
解释: 节点 2 和节点 4 的最近公共祖先是 2, 因为根据定义最近公共祖先节点可以为节点本身。
 

说明:

所有节点的值都是唯一的。
p、q 为不同节点且均存在于给定的二叉搜索树中。
