A related problem to search is set membership. Any algorithm that does lookup, like binary search, can also be used for set membership.

There are other algorithms that are more specifically suited for set membership. A bit array is the simplest, useful when the range of keys is limited.

It compactly stores a collection of bits , with each bit representing a single key within the range of keys. For approximate results, Bloom filters , another probabilistic data structure based on hashing, store a set of keys by encoding the keys using a bit array and multiple hash functions.

Bloom filters are much more space-efficient than bit arrays in most cases and not much slower: However, Bloom filters suffer from false positives.

There exist data structures that may improve on binary search in some cases for both searching and other operations available for sorted arrays.

For example, searches, approximate matches, and the operations available to sorted arrays can be performed more efficiently than binary search on specialized data structures such as van Emde Boas trees , fusion trees , tries , and bit arrays.

These specialized data structures are usually only faster because they take advantage of the properties of keys with a certain attribute usually keys that are small integers , and thus will be time or space consuming for keys that lack that attribute.

Some structures, such as Judy arrays, use a combination of approaches to mitigate this while retaining efficiency and the ability to perform approximate matching.

Uniform binary search stores, instead of the lower and upper bounds, the index of the middle element and the change in the middle element from the current iteration to the next iteration.

Each step reduces the change by about half. Uniform binary search works on the basis that the difference between the index of middle element of the array and the left and right subarrays is the same.

The main advantage of uniform binary search is that the procedure can store a table of the differences between indices for each iteration of the procedure.

Uniform binary search may be faster on systems where it is inefficient to calculate the midpoint, such as on decimal computers.

It starts by finding the first element with an index that is both a power of two and greater than the target value. Afterwards, it sets that index as the upper bound, and switches to binary search.

Exponential search works on bounded lists, but becomes an improvement over binary search only if the target value lies near the beginning of the array.

Instead of calculating the midpoint, interpolation search estimates the position of the target value, taking into account the lowest and highest elements in the array as well as length of the array.

This is only possible if the array elements are numbers. It works on the basis that the midpoint is not the best guess in many cases.

For example, if the target value is close to the highest element in the array, it is likely to be located near the end of the array.

In practice, interpolation search is slower than binary search for small arrays, as interpolation search requires extra computation.

Its time complexity grows more slowly than binary search, but this only compensates for the extra computation for large arrays.

Fractional cascading is a technique that speeds up binary searches for the same element in multiple sorted arrays. Fractional cascading was originally developed to efficiently solve various computational geometry problems.

Fractional cascading has been applied elsewhere, such as in data mining and Internet Protocol routing. Noisy binary search algorithms solve the case where the algorithm cannot reliably compare elements of the array.

For each pair of elements, there is a certain probability that the algorithm makes the wrong comparison.

Noisy binary search can find the correct position of the target with a given probability that controls the reliability of the yielded position.

In , John Mauchly made the first mention of binary search as part of the Moore School Lectures , a seminal and foundational college course in computing.

Chandra of Stanford University in Guibas introduced fractional cascading as a method to solve numerous search problems in computational geometry.

Although the basic idea of binary search is comparatively straightforward, the details can be surprisingly tricky When Jon Bentley assigned binary search as a problem in a course for professional programmers, he found that ninety percent failed to provide a correct solution after several hours of working on it, mainly because the incorrect implementations failed to run or returned a wrong answer in rare edge cases.

The Java programming language library implementation of binary search had the same overflow bug for more than nine years. In a practical implementation, the variables used to represent the indices will often be of fixed size, and this can result in an arithmetic overflow for very large arrays.

An infinite loop may occur if the exit conditions for the loop are not defined correctly. In addition, the loop must be exited when the target element is found, or in the case of an implementation where this check is moved to the end, checks for whether the search was successful or failed at the end must be in place.

Bentley found that most of the programmers who incorrectly implemented binary search made an error in defining the exit conditions.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Search algorithm finding the position of a target value within a sorted array.

This article is about searching a finite sorted array. For searching continuous function values, see bisection method. Take for example the array [1, 2, The first iteration will select the midpoint of 8.

On the left subarray are eight elements, but on the right are nine. If the search takes the right path, there is a higher chance that the search will make the maximum number of comparisons.

An internal path is any path from the root to an existing node. This is because internal paths represent the elements that the search algorithm compares to the target.

The lengths of these internal paths represent the number of iterations after the root node. Adding the average of these lengths to the one iteration at the root yields the average case.

It turns out that the tree for binary search minimizes the internal path length. Knuth proved that the external path length the path length over all nodes where both children are present for each already-existing node is minimized when the external nodes the nodes with no children lie within two consecutive levels of the tree.

When each subtree has a similar number of nodes, or equivalently the array is divided into halves in each iteration, the external nodes as well as their interior parent nodes lie within two levels.

It follows that binary search minimizes the number of average comparisons as its comparison tree has the lowest possible internal path length. The time complexity for this variation grows slightly more slowly, but at the cost of higher initial complexity.

Linear search has lower initial complexity because it requires minimal computation, but it quickly outgrows binary search in complexity. A modification to the half-interval search binary search method.

In keeping with customary representation of numerals using Arabic numerals , binary numbers are commonly written using the symbols 0 and 1. When written, binary numerals are often subscripted, prefixed or suffixed in order to indicate their base, or radix.

The following notations are equivalent:. When spoken, binary numerals are usually read digit-by-digit, in order to distinguish them from decimal numerals.

For example, the binary numeral is pronounced one zero zero , rather than one hundred , to make its binary nature explicit, and for purposes of correctness.

Since the binary numeral represents the value four, it would be confusing to refer to the numeral as one hundred a word that represents a completely different value, or amount.

Alternatively, the binary numeral can be read out as "four" the correct value , but this does not make its binary nature explicit. Counting in binary is similar to counting in any other number system.

Beginning with a single digit, counting proceeds through each symbol, in increasing order. Before examining binary counting, it is useful to briefly discuss the more familiar decimal counting system as a frame of reference.

Decimal counting uses the ten symbols 0 through 9. Counting begins with the incremental substitution of the least significant digit rightmost digit which is often called the first digit.

When the available symbols for this position are exhausted, the least significant digit is reset to 0 , and the next digit of higher significance one position to the left is incremented overflow , and incremental substitution of the low-order digit resumes.

This method of reset and overflow is repeated for each digit of significance. Counting progresses as follows:. Binary counting follows the same procedure, except that only the two symbols 0 and 1 are available.

Thus, after a digit reaches 1 in binary, an increment resets it to 0 but also causes an increment of the next digit to the left:. In the binary system, each digit represents an increasing power of 2, with the rightmost digit representing 2 0 , the next representing 2 1 , then 2 2 , and so on.

The equivalent decimal representation of a binary number is sum of the powers of 2 which each digit represents. For example, the binary number is converted to decimal form as follows:.

Fractions in binary arithmetic terminate only if 2 is the only prime factor in the denominator. Arithmetic in binary is much like arithmetic in other numeral systems.

Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division can be performed on binary numerals. The simplest arithmetic operation in binary is addition. Adding two single-digit binary numbers is relatively simple, using a form of carrying:.

Adding two "1" digits produces a digit "0", while 1 will have to be added to the next column. This is similar to what happens in decimal when certain single-digit numbers are added together; if the result equals or exceeds the value of the radix 10 , the digit to the left is incremented:.

This is known as carrying. This is correct since the next position has a weight that is higher by a factor equal to the radix.

Carrying works the same way in binary:. In this example, two numerals are being added together: The top row shows the carry bits used.

The 1 is carried to the left, and the 0 is written at the bottom of the rightmost column. The second column from the right is added: This time, a 1 is carried, and a 1 is written in the bottom row.

Proceeding like this gives the final answer 2 36 decimal. When computers must add two numbers, the rule that: This method is generally useful in any binary addition in which one of the numbers contains a long "string" of ones.

It is based on the simple premise that under the binary system, when given a "string" of digits composed entirely of n ones where: That concept follows, logically, just as in the decimal system, where adding 1 to a string of n 9s will result in the number 1 followed by a string of n 0s:.

Such long strings are quite common in the binary system. From that one finds that large binary numbers can be added using two simple steps, without excessive carry operations.

In the following example, two numerals are being added together: Instead of the standard carry from one column to the next, the lowest-ordered "1" with a "1" in the corresponding place value beneath it may be added and a "1" may be carried to one digit past the end of the series.

The "used" numbers must be crossed off, since they are already added. Other long strings may likewise be cancelled using the same technique.

Then, simply add together any remaining digits normally. Proceeding in this manner gives the final answer of 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 2 In our simple example using small numbers, the traditional carry method required eight carry operations, yet the long carry method required only two, representing a substantial reduction of effort.

Subtracting a "1" digit from a "0" digit produces the digit "1", while 1 will have to be subtracted from the next column. This is known as borrowing.

The principle is the same as for carrying. Subtracting a positive number is equivalent to adding a negative number of equal absolute value.

Such representations eliminate the need for a separate "subtract" operation. Multiplication in binary is similar to its decimal counterpart.

Two numbers A and B can be multiplied by partial products: The sum of all these partial products gives the final result.

Since there are only two digits in binary, there are only two possible outcomes of each partial multiplication:. Binary numbers can also be multiplied with bits after a binary point:.

Long division in binary is again similar to its decimal counterpart. My password hashing function was always returning the same hash Because I was XOR-ing it with a salt that was sometimes empty!

Be careful of order of operations. Use at your own peril. In order to get the result I expected 01 , it was necessary to AND the result with the number of bits I wanted: Be aware that all return values will have zeros removed from the left until they reach a bit that is set to 1.

Continuing the above example, the following: This is probably a good thing. If what you want is just to reverse a string of bits without any interpretation, you can use a function like this: You can then treat it as a binary number, use bindec to turn it into a decimal, or whatever you want.

I hope this helps someone as much as it would have helped me a week ago! I found the bit limitation on the bitwise ands to be a bit frustrating in large scale permission control applications.

I have a situation involving page-level access with more than 50 pages. I was able to workaround the limitation by adding a loop that dropped 31 bits off of the right until the resource identifier bit is within the first For those who were searching for a way to actually rotate the bits of a number, here are some little functions I wrote: For those like me who are trying to do bit masking with very large numbers, here is a useful function to do the work for you.

The following function will perform a bit left shift on a bit machine: By this I mean managing a set of options which can either be ON or OFF, where zero or more of these options may be set and each option may only be set once.

Here is the code: You can store loads of flags in a single integer. When you want to test later if a certain flag is set, use e.

Here is the process: Write a list of your flags 2. Working backwards through your list, from the last to the first, define each one as half of the previous one.

You should reach 1 when you get to the first If you want to understand binary numbers, bits and bitwise operation better, the wikipedia page explains it well - http: Hopefully this may help someone understand the fun of Bitwise Operators Nice example of bitwise operation with strings:

In this method, multiplying one number by a second is performed by a sequence of steps in which a value initially the first of the two numbers is either doubled or has the first number added back into it; the order in which these steps are to be performed is given by the binary representation of the second number.

This method can be seen in use, for instance, in the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus , which dates to around BC.

It is based on taoistic duality of yin and yang. The Song Dynasty scholar Shao Yong — rearranged the hexagrams in a format that resembles modern binary numbers, although he did not intend his arrangement to be used mathematically.

The Indian scholar Pingala c. The residents of the island of Mangareva in French Polynesia were using a hybrid binary- decimal system before In the late 13th century Ramon Llull had the ambition to account for all wisdom in every branch of human knowledge of the time.

In Francis Bacon discussed a system whereby letters of the alphabet could be reduced to sequences of binary digits, which could then be encoded as scarcely visible variations in the font in any random text.

John Napier in described a system he called location arithmetic for doing binary calculations using a non-positional representation by letters.

Thomas Harriot investigated several positional numbering systems, including binary, but did not publish his results; they were found later among his papers.

Leibniz interpreted the hexagrams of the I Ching as evidence of binary calculus. Leibniz saw the I Ching hexagrams as an affirmation of the universality of his own religious beliefs as a Christian.

He believed that binary numbers were symbolic of the Christian idea of creatio ex nihilo or creation out of nothing. Now one can say that nothing in the world can better present and demonstrate this power than the origin of numbers, as it is presented here through the simple and unadorned presentation of One and Zero or Nothing.

In , British mathematician George Boole published a landmark paper detailing an algebraic system of logic that would become known as Boolean algebra.

His logical calculus was to become instrumental in the design of digital electronic circuitry. In November , George Stibitz , then working at Bell Labs , completed a relay-based computer he dubbed the "Model K" for " K itchen", where he had assembled it , which calculated using binary addition.

Their Complex Number Computer, completed 8 January , was able to calculate complex numbers. In a demonstration to the American Mathematical Society conference at Dartmouth College on 11 September , Stibitz was able to send the Complex Number Calculator remote commands over telephone lines by a teletype.

It was the first computing machine ever used remotely over a phone line. Some participants of the conference who witnessed the demonstration were John von Neumann , John Mauchly and Norbert Wiener , who wrote about it in his memoirs.

The Z1 computer , which was designed and built by Konrad Zuse between and , used Boolean logic and binary floating point numbers. Any number can be represented by a sequence of bits binary digits , which in turn may be represented by any mechanism capable of being in two mutually exclusive states.

Any of the following rows of symbols can be interpreted as the binary numeric value of The numeric value represented in each case is dependent upon the value assigned to each symbol.

In a computer, the numeric values may be represented by two different voltages ; on a magnetic disk , magnetic polarities may be used. A "positive", " yes ", or "on" state is not necessarily equivalent to the numerical value of one; it depends on the architecture in use.

Notice I am defining const variables AND methods to use them. With the User class, you can now see how easy and intuitive bitwise flag operations become.

Initially, I found bitmasking to be a confusing concept and found no use for it. Just remember to raise each value by the power of two to avoid problems.

So 8 gets returned. A bitwise operators practical case: FE , Green: A9 , Blue: Freely switching between int and float is good for most cases, but problems happen when your value is near the word size of your machine.

Which is to say, bit machines will encounter problems with values that hover around 0x - primarily because PHP does not support unsigned integers.

More referencing this for myself than anything Here is an example for bitwise leftrotate and rightrotate. Note that this function works only with decimal numbers - other types can be converted with pack.

For those who are looking for a circular bit shift function in PHP especially useful for cryptographic functions that works with negtive values, here is a little function I wrote: So, one solution would to have an array of bitmasks, that are accessed through some kind of interface.

Here is my solution for this: A class to store an array of integers being the bitmasks. It can hold up to bits, and frees up unused bitmasks when there are no bits being stored in them.

Just learning Bitwise Shift Operators. However, a complement is necessary to complete this sentence. In other words, try avoiding using the binary operators on strings: Just a note regarding negative shift values, as the documentation states each shift is an integer multiply or divide left or right respectively by 2.

That means a negative shift value the right hand operand effects the sign of the shift and NOT the direction of the shift as I would have expected.

So this is the right way: Converting a negative decimal number ie: If the left most bit is a 1 then the binary number is negative and you flip the bits and add 1.

By doing this, the algorithm eliminates the half in which the target value cannot lie in each iteration. The procedure may be expressed in pseudocode as follows, where the variable names and types remain the same as above, floor is the floor function, and unsuccessful refers to a specific value that conveys the failure of the search.

Some implementations leave out this check during each iteration. This results in a faster comparison loop, as one comparison is eliminated per iteration.

However, it requires one more iteration on average. Hermann Bottenbruch published the first implementation to leave out this check in The procedure may return any index whose element is equal to the target value, even if there are duplicate elements in the array.

The regular procedure would return the 4th element index 3. However, it is sometimes necessary to find the leftmost element or the rightmost element if the target value is duplicated in the array.

In the above example, the 4th element is the leftmost element of the value 4, while the 5th element is the rightmost element of the value 4.

The alternative procedure above will always return the index of the rightmost element if an element is duplicated in the array. To find the leftmost element, the following procedure can be used: To find the rightmost element, the following procedure can be used: The above procedure only performs exact matches, finding the position of a target value.

However, it is trivial to extend binary search to perform approximate matches because binary search operates on sorted arrays.

For example, binary search can be used to compute, for a given value, its rank the number of smaller elements , predecessor next-smallest element , successor next-largest element , and nearest neighbor.

Range queries seeking the number of elements between two values can be performed with two rank queries.

The performance of binary search can be analyzed by reducing the procedure to a binary comparison tree. The root node of the tree is the middle element of the array.

The middle element of the lower half is the left child node of the root and the middle element of the upper half is the right child node of the root.

The rest of the tree is built in a similar fashion. This model represents binary search. Starting from the root node, the left or right subtrees are traversed depending on whether the target value is less or more than the node under consideration.

This represents the successive elimination of elements. The worst case is reached when the search reaches the deepest level of the tree.

This is equivalent to a binary search that has reduced to one element and always eliminates the smaller subarray out of the two in each iteration if they are not of equal size.

The worst case may also be reached when the target element is not in the array. In the best case, where the target value is the middle element of the array, its position is returned after one iteration.

In terms of iterations, no search algorithm that works only by comparing elements can exhibit better average and worst-case performance than binary search.

The comparison tree representing binary search has the fewest levels possible as every level above the lowest level of the tree is filled completely.

This is the case for other search algorithms based on comparisons, as while they may work faster on some target values, the average performance over all elements is worse than binary search.

By dividing the array in half, binary search ensures that the size of both subarrays are as similar as possible. Each iteration of the binary search procedure defined above makes one or two comparisons, checking if the middle element is equal to the target in each iteration.

Assuming that each element is equally likely to be searched, each iteration makes 1. A variation of the algorithm checks whether the middle element is equal to the target at the end of the search.

On average, this eliminates half a comparison from each iteration. This slightly cuts the time taken per iteration on most computers.

However, it guarantees that the search takes the maximum number of iterations, on average adding one iteration to the search.

In addition, sorted arrays can complicate memory use especially when elements are often inserted into the array. Binary search can be used to perform exact matching and set membership determining whether a target value is in a collection of values.

There are data structures that support faster exact matching and set membership. For implementing associative arrays , hash tables , a data structure that maps keys to records using a hash function , are generally faster than binary search on a sorted array of records.

Binary search also supports approximate matches. Some operations, like finding the smallest and largest element, can be done efficiently on sorted arrays but not on hash tables.

A binary search tree is a binary tree data structure that works based on the principle of binary search. The records of the tree are arranged in sorted order, and each record in the tree can be searched using an algorithm similar to binary search, taking on average logarithmic time.

Insertion and deletion also require on average logarithmic time in binary search trees. This can be faster than the linear time insertion and deletion of sorted arrays, and binary trees retain the ability to perform all the operations possible on a sorted array, including range and approximate queries.

However, binary search is usually more efficient for searching as binary search trees will most likely be imperfectly balanced, resulting in slightly worse performance than binary search.

This even applies to balanced binary search trees , binary search trees that balance their own nodes, because they rarely produce optimally -balanced trees.

Binary search trees lend themselves to fast searching in external memory stored in hard disks, as binary search trees can efficiently be structured in filesystems.

The B-tree generalizes this method of tree organization. B-trees are frequently used to organize long-term storage such as databases and filesystems.

Linear search is a simple search algorithm that checks every record until it finds the target value. Linear search can be done on a linked list, which allows for faster insertion and deletion than an array.

Binary search is faster than linear search for sorted arrays except if the array is short, although the array needs to be sorted beforehand.

There are operations such as finding the smallest and largest element that can be done efficiently on a sorted array but not on an unsorted array.

A related problem to search is set membership. Any algorithm that does lookup, like binary search, can also be used for set membership.

There are other algorithms that are more specifically suited for set membership. A bit array is the simplest, useful when the range of keys is limited.

It compactly stores a collection of bits , with each bit representing a single key within the range of keys. For approximate results, Bloom filters , another probabilistic data structure based on hashing, store a set of keys by encoding the keys using a bit array and multiple hash functions.

For example, searches, approximate matches, and the operations available to sorted arrays can be performed more efficiently than binary search on specialized data structures such as van Emde Boas trees , fusion trees , tries , and bit arrays.

These specialized data structures are usually only faster because they take advantage of the properties of keys with a certain attribute usually keys that are small integers , and thus will be time or space consuming for keys that lack that attribute.
