"So, we're going to talk today about binary search trees. It's something called randomly built binary search trees. And, I'll abbreviate binary search trees as BST's throughout the lecture. And, you of all seen binary search trees in one place or another, in particular, recitation on Friday. So, we're going to build up the basic ideas presented there, and talk about how to randomize them, and make them good. So, you know that there are good binary search trees, which are relatively balanced, something like this. The height is log n..."
