Binary Decision Diagram Data Structure

A BDD (Bryant 1986) or branching program is a data structure that is used to represent a Boolean function. On a more abstract level, BDDs can be considered as a compressed representation of sets or relations. Unlike other compressed representations, operations are performed directly on the compressed representation, i.e. without decompression.

Trie Data Structure

A trie (Fredkin, 1960), also called digital tree and sometimes radix tree, is an ordered multi-way tree data structure that is used to store a dynamic set or associative array where the keys are usually strings. Unlike a binary search tree, no node in the tree stores the key associated with that node; instead, its position in the tree defines the key with which it is associated.

Find the middle element of linked list in C

In order to find middle element of linked list in one pass, you need to maintain two pointers, one increment at each node while other increments after two nodes at a time. By having this arrangement, when first pointer reaches end, second pointer will point to middle element of linked list.
