# 6.18. Summary of Map ADT Implementations¶

Over the past two chapters we have looked at several data structures that can be used to implement the map abstract data type. A binary Search on a list, a hash table, a binary search tree, and a balanced binary search tree. To conclude this section, let’s summarize the performance of each data structure for the key operations defined by the map ADT (see Table 1).

operation | Sorted List | Hash Table | Binary Search Tree | AVL Tree |
---|---|---|---|---|

put | \(O(n)\) | \(O(1)\) | \(O(n)\) | \(O(\log_2{n})\) |

get | \(O(\log_2{n})\) | \(O(1)\) | \(O(n)\) | \(O(\log_2{n})\) |

in | \(O(\log_2{n})\) | \(O(1)\) | \(O(n)\) | \(O(\log_2{n})\) |

del | \(O(n)\) | \(O(1)\) | \(O(n)\) | \(O(\log_2{n})\) |
