About

Various heap implementations for arbitrary values and with customizable ordering.

Type agnostic Heap and Priority Queue implementations with customizable ordering and fanout / tree arity (in case of DHeap) and largely unified API:

Heaps

import { defDHeap } from "@thi.ng/heaps";

// with initial values, custom comparator and heap arity
const h = defDHeap<number>(
    [5, 2, 10, 15, 18, 23, 22, -1],
    {
        // custom comparator
        compare: (a, b) => b - a,
        // branch size (DHeap only)
        d: 4
    }
);

h.pop();
// 23
h.pop();
// 22

// insert new value unless it's a new root
// else pop and return current root
h.pushPop(16)
// 18

h.push(24);

Priority queue

Even though all provided heap implementations support arbitrary values and comparators and could be used as-is to implement a priority queue, since v1.3.0 this package also includes a dedicated PriorityQueue class, a thin veneer wrapper for a backing Heap and exposing a PQ-like API for arbitrary values, with configurable value equality handling and priority ordering:

  • By default higher priority values mean higher priority
  • Already queued items can be reprioritized or removed
  • The queue head can be inspected via peek() and/or peekPriority() without removing it from the queue
  • Multiple items can be added at once via into()
  • The queue is iterable (in priority order, according to given comparator)
import { defPriorityQueue } from "@thi.ng/heaps";

// use default config
const queue = defPriorityQueue();

// add items
queue.push(["alice", 5]);
queue.into([["bob", 3], ["charlie", 10], ["dora", 8]]);

// peek at top priority item
queue.peek()
// "charlie"
queue.peekPriority()
// 10

// reprioritize
queue.reprioritize("alice", 20)

// retrieve & remove top priority item
queue.pop()
// "alice"
