A Linear List Merging Algorithm

Other Titles
Abstract

A linear list merging algorithm and its analysis is presented. Starting with n lists, each containing a single element, the algorithm will execute an arbitrary sequence of requests to merge lists and to find the name of the list currently containing a given element. If the length of the sequence of requests is bounded by a constant times n, then the execution time of the algorithm on a random access computer is bounded by a constant times n.
