Linear search
In computer science, a linear search or sequential search is a method for finding an element within a list. It sequentially checks each element of the
Binary search algorithm
Binary search is faster than linear search except for small arrays. However, the array must be sorted first to be able to apply binary search. There are
Linear search problem
In computational complexity theory, the linear search problem is an optimal search problem introduced by Richard E. Bellman and independently considered
Search algorithm
searches repeatedly target the center of the search structure and divide the search space in half. Comparison search algorithms improve on linear searching
Interpolation search
interpolation-sequential search, interpolation is used to find an item near the one being searched for, then linear search is used to find the exact
Nearest neighbor search
There are no search data structures to maintain, so the linear search has no space complexity beyond the storage of the database. Naive search can, on average
Binary search tree
complexity of a lookup operation is essentially identical with that of a linear search i.e. O ( n ) {\displaystyle O(n)} , which is alike that of data structures
Time complexity
sub-linear time algorithm. Sub-linear time algorithms arise naturally in the investigation of property testing. An algorithm is said to take linear time
Linear probing
cell of the hash table that is already occupied by another key, linear probing searches the table for the closest following free location and inserts the
Brute-force search
table – namely, check all entries of the latter, sequentially – is called linear search. In order candidate for P after the current one c. valid (P, c): check
