There are many variations of balanced and semi- balanced binary trees. One of them, which is due to the work of Gaston H. Gonnet published in 1983, is the Internal Path Reduction (IPR) tree. Its height is the same as the AVL tree, but produces a slightly more compact structure. The internal path (IP) is defined as the sum of the path lengths of all nodes measured from the root. On average, the IPR tree produces an internal path of about 10% smaller than the AVL one. In addition, the IPR tree has a tunable parameter that determines the acceptable level of imbalance. IPR Trees are with no doubt superior compared to AVL Trees

AVL vs. IPR  Both are BSTs  Both are HB(1)  They do not tolerate imbalance and the tree is restored to a proper shape by predefined rotations.  IPR rotations are geared towards reducing IP in the tree ( ( IP = Σpath length from Node i to root i=1 to n )  AVL has attracted much more attention in the literature but IPR is kinda forsaken
