Dictionaries Recall the Map ADT 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Map ADT methods: size(), isEmpty() get(k): if the map M has an entry with key k, return its assoiciated value; else, return null put(k, v): insert entry (k, v) into the map M; if key k is not already in M, then return null; else, return old value associated with k remove(k): if the map M has an entry with key k, remove it from M and return its associated value; else, return null keys(): return an iterator of the keys in M values(): return an iterator of the values in M Disadvantage with list-based implementation Map: Key-value entries (k1, v1), (k2, v2), (k3, v3), …

To store and retrieve entries:
Example of Hashing We design a hash table for a map storing entries as (SSN, Name), where SSN (social security number) is a nine-digit positive integer Our hash table uses an array of size N = 10,000 and the hash function h(k) = last four digits of k 1 2 3 4 9997 9998 9999 To store and retrieve entries: h(k) hash table

Hash Functions and Hash Tables
Dictionaries Hash Functions and Hash Tables 4/1/2017 2:36 PM A hash function h maps keys of a given type to integers in a fixed interval [0, N - 1] i = h(k) Example: h(k) = k mod N is a hash function for integer keys The integer h(k) is called the hash value of key k A hash table for a given key type consists of Array (called table) of size N Hash function h When implementing a map with a hash table, the goal is to store item (k, o) at index i = h(k)

Hash Functions Hash code: h1: keys  integers
Dictionaries Hash Functions 4/1/2017 2:36 PM The hash code is applied first, and the compression function is applied next on the result, i.e., h(k) = h2(h1(k)) The goal of the hash function is to “disperse” the keys in an apparently random way A hash function is usually specified as the composition of two functions: Hash code: h1: keys  integers Compression function: h2: integers  [0, N - 1] i = h(k) y = h1(key) h2(y)

Various Hash Codes Memory address: Integer cast: Component sum:
Dictionaries Various Hash Codes 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Memory address: We reinterpret the memory address of the key object as an integer (default hash code of all Java objects) Good in general, except for numeric and string keys Integer cast: We reinterpret the bits of the key as an integer Suitable for keys of length less than or equal to the number of bits of the integer type (e.g., byte, short, int and float in Java) E.g. Float.floatToIntBits(x) for a variable x of base type float Component sum: We partition the bits of the key into components of fixed length (e.g., 16 or 32 bits) and we sum the components (ignoring overflows) Suitable for numeric keys of fixed length greater than or equal to the number of bits of the integer type (e.g., long and double in Java) static int hashCode(long i) {return (int)((i >> 32) + (int) i);}

Polynomial Hash Codes Polynomial accumulation:
Dictionaries Polynomial Hash Codes 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Polynomial accumulation: We partition the bits of the key into a sequence of components of fixed length (e.g., 8, 16 or 32 bits) x0 x1 … xk-1 We evaluate the polynomial p(a) = x0 ak-1+ x1 ak-2 + … xk-2 a + xk-1 at a fixed value a, ignoring overflows Especially suitable for strings (e.g., the choice a = 33 gives at most 6 collisions on a set of 50,000 English words) Polynomial p(a) can be evaluated in O(n) time using Horner’s rule: The following polynomials are successively computed, each from the previous one in O(1) time p0(a) = x0 pi (a) = xi + api-1(a) (i = 1, 2, …, k -1) We have p(a) = pk-1(a) Tom Mary Helen John ‘T’(33)2+’o’(33)1+’m’

Cyclic Shift Hash Codes
Dictionaries Cyclic Shift Hash Codes 4/1/2017 2:36 PM A variant of the polynomial hash code replaces multiplication by a with a cyclic shift of a partial sum by a certain number of bits. static int hashCode(String s) { int h=0; for (int i=0; i<s.length(); i++) { h = (h << 5) | (h >>> 27); // 5-bit cyclic shift of the running sum h += (int) s.charAt(i); // add in next character } return h; Note: “<<” cyclic left shift “>>>” shift bits right, filling in with zeros

Dictionaries 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Note: 5-bit cyclic shift has the best performance for a list over 25,000 English words 5-bit

Compression Functions
Dictionaries 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Compression Functions y = h1(key) Division: h2 (y) = y mod N The size N of the hash table is usually chosen to be a prime The reason has to do with number theory and is beyond the scope of this course Multiply, Add and Divide (MAD): h2 (y) = [(ay + b) mod p] mod N p is a prime number larger than N a and b are integers chosen at random from [0, p1], with a > 0 h2(y)

Collision Handling Collisions occur when different elements are mapped to the same cell, i.e., h(k1) = h(k2) Solutions separate chaining open addressing (i.e., find a different cell) linear probing quadratic probling double hashing 1 2 3 4 h(k1) h(k2)

Dictionaries Separate Chaining 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Let each cell in the table point to a linked list of entries that map there Separate chaining is simple, but requires additional memory outside the table h(k) = k mod 13

Map Methods with Separate Chaining used for Collisions
Dictionaries 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Map Methods with Separate Chaining used for Collisions Algorithm get(k): Output: The value associated with the key k in the map, or null if there is no entry with key equal to k in the map return A[h(k)].get(k) {delegate the get to the list-based map at A[h(k)]} Algorithm put(k,v): Output: If there is an existing entry in our map with key equal to k, then we return its value (replacing it with v); otherwise, we return null t = A[h(k)].put(k,v) {delegate the put to the list-based map at A[h(k)]} if t = null then {k is a new key} n = n + 1 return t Algorithm remove(k): Output: The (removed) value associated with key k in the map, or null if there is no entry with key equal to k in the map t = A[h(k)].remove(k) {delegate the remove to the list-based map at A[h(k)]} if t ≠ null then {k was found} n = n - 1

Dictionaries Linear Probing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM h(k) = k mod 11 k = 15

Linear Probing Example:
Dictionaries Linear Probing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Open addressing: the colliding item is placed in a different cell of the table Linear probing handles collisions by placing the colliding item in the next (circularly) available table cell Each table cell inspected is referred to as a “probe” Colliding items lump together, causing future collisions to cause a longer sequence of probes; that is, the order of A[i], A[(i+1) mod N], A[(i+2) mod N], … where i = h(k) Example: h(k) = k mod 13 Insert keys 18, 41, 22, 44, 59, 32, 31, 73, in this order 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 41 18 44 59 32 22 31 73

Search with Linear Probing
Dictionaries Search with Linear Probing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Consider a hash table A that uses linear probing get(k) We start at cell h(k) We probe consecutive locations until one of the following occurs An item with key k is found, or An empty cell is found, or N cells have been unsuccessfully probed Algorithm get(k) i  h(k) p  0 repeat c  A[i] if c =  return null else if c.key () = k return c.element() else i  (i + 1) mod N p  p + 1 until p = N

Dictionaries Updates with Linear Probing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM To handle insertions and deletions, we introduce a special object, called AVAILABLE, which replaces deleted elements remove(k) We search for an entry with key k If such an entry (k, o) is found, we replace it with the special item AVAILABLE and we return element o Else, we return null put(k, o) We throw an exception if the table is full We start at cell h(k) We probe consecutive cells until one of the following occurs A cell i is found that is either empty or stores AVAILABLE, or N cells have been unsuccessfully probed We store entry (k, o) in cell i remove(22) 41 18 44 59 22 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Quadratic Probing Iteratively trying the buskets
Dictionaries Quadratic Probing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Iteratively trying the buskets A[(i+f(j)) mod N], for j = 0, 1, 2, …, where f(j) = j2 Example: h(k) = k mod 13 Insert keys 18, 41, 22, 44, 59, 32, 31, 73, in this order 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 31 41 18 44 59 73 22 32 quadratic probing linear probing

A[(i + f(j)) mod N] for j = 1, 2, 3, …, where f(j) = j*h’(k).
Dictionaries Double Hashing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM If A[i], with i = h(k) is already occupied, double hashing uses a secondary hash function h’(k) and handles collisions by placing an item in the first available cell of the series The secondary hash function h’(k) cannot have zero values The table size N must be a prime to allow probing of all the cells Common choice of compression function for the secondary hash function: h’(k) = q - (k mod q) where q < N and q is a prime The possible values for h’(k) are 1, 2, … , q A[(i + f(j)) mod N] for j = 1, 2, 3, …, where f(j) = j*h’(k). Collision handling: A[(i + f(j)) mod N] where i = h(k) for j = 1, 2, 3, …, where f(j) = j*h’(k)

Example of Double Hashing
Dictionaries Example of Double Hashing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM Consider a hash table storing integer keys that handles collision with double hashing N = 13 h(k) = k mod 13 h’(k) = 7 - (k mod 7) Insert keys 18, 41, 22, 44, 59, 32, 31, 73, in this order 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 31 41 18 32 59 73 22 44 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Collision handling: A[(i + f(j)) mod N] where i = h(k) for j = 1, 2, 3, …, where f(j) = j*h’(k) h’(k) = q - (k mod q) where q < N and q is a prime

Performance of Hashing
Dictionaries Performance of Hashing 4/1/2017 2:36 PM In the worst case, searches, insertions and removals on a hash table take O(n) time The worst case occurs when all the keys inserted into the map collide The load factor  = n/N affects the performance of a hash table Suggest:  < 0.5 for open addressing schemes and  < 0.9 for separate chaining If load factor goes significantly above the threshold, then rehashing to a new table is performed Assuming that the hash values are like random numbers, it can be shown that the expected number of probes for an insertion with open addressing is (1/(1-) ) The expected running time of all the dictionary ADT operations in a hash table is O(1) In practice, hashing is very fast provided the load factor is not close to 100% Applications of hash tables: small databases compilers browser caches 1 … … n  = n/N Hashing
