  • A B-tree is a specialized multiway tree designed especially for use on disk. In a B-tree each node may contain a large number of keys. The number of subtrees of each node, then, may also be large. A B-tree is designed to branch out in this large number of directions and to contain a lot of keys in each node so that the height of the tree is relatively small. This means that only a small number of nodes must be read from disk to retrieve an item. The goal is to get fast access to the data, and with disk drives this means reading a very small number of records. Note that a large node size (with lots of keys in the node) also fits with the fact that with a disk drive one can usually read a fair amount of data at once.
  • Insert the following letters into what is originally an empty B-tree of order 5: C N G A H E K Q M F W L T Z D P R X Y S Order 5 means that a node can have a maximum of 5 children and 4 keys. All nodes other than the root must have a minimum of 2 keys. The first 4 letters get inserted into the same node, resulting in this pictureWhen we try to insert the H, we find no room in this node, so we split it into 2 nodes, moving the median item G up into a new root node. Note that in practice we just leave the A and C in the current node and place the H and N into a new node to the right of the old one.Inserting E, K, and Q proceeds without requiring any splits:Inserting M requires a split. Note that M happens to be the median key and so is moved up into the parent node.
  • In the B-tree as we left it at the end of the last section, delete H. Of course, we first do a lookup to find H. Since H is in a leaf and the leaf has more than the minimum number of keys, this is easy. We move the K over where the H had been and the L over where the K had been. Next, delete the T. Since T is not in a leaf, we find its successor (the next item in ascending order), which happens to be W, and move W up to replace the T. That way, what we really have to do is to delete W from the leaf, which we already know how to do, since this leaf has extra keys. In ALL cases we reduce deletion to a deletion in a leaf, by using this method.Next, delete R. Although R is in a leaf, this leaf does not have an extra key; the deletion results in a node with only one key, which is not acceptable for a B-tree of order 5. If the sibling node to the immediate left or right has an extra key, we can then borrow a key from the parent and move a key up from this sibling. In our specific case, the sibling to the right has an extra key. So, the successor W of S (the last key in the node where the deletion occurred), is moved down from the parent, and the X is moved up. (Of course, the S is moved over so that the W can be inserted in its proper place.)Finally, let's delete E. This one causes lots of problems. Although E is in a leaf, the leaf has no extra keys, nor do the siblings to the immediate right or left. In such a case the leaf has to be combined with one of these two siblings. This includes moving down the parent's key that was between those of these two leaves. In our example, let's combine the leaf containing F with the leaf containing A C. We also move down the D.

    1. 1. B-TreeAn Analysis By: Nikhil Sharma BE/8034/09
    2. 2. DefinitionA B-tree is a tree data structure that keeps data sorted and allows searches, sequential access, insertions, and deletions in logarithmic amortized time. The B-tree is a generalization of a binary search tree in which more than two paths diverge from a single node.A B-tree of order m (the maximum number of children for each node) is a tree which satisfies the following properties: Every node has at most m children. Every node (except root and leaves) has at least m⁄2 children. The root has at least two children if it is not a leaf node. All leaves appear in the same level, and carry information. A non-leaf node with k children contains k−1 keys. Declaration in C: typedef struct { int Count; // number of keys stored in the current node ItemType Key[3]; // array to hold the 3 keys [4]; long Branch[4]; // array of fake pointers (record numbers) } NodeType;
    3. 3. Order & Key of a B-TreeThe following is an example of a B-tree of order 5. This meansthat (other than the root node) all internal nodes have at least 3children (and hence at least 2 keys). Of course, the maximumnumber of children that a node can have is 5 (so that 4 is themaximum number of keys). In practice B-trees usually haveorders a lot bigger than 5. The first row in each node shows thekeys, while the second row shows the pointers to the child nodes
    4. 4. Height of B-Tree If n ≥ 1, then for any n-key B-tree T of height h and minimum degree t ≥ 2, h logt (n 1)/2 Height of the B-Tree with n keys is important as it bound the number of disk accesses. The height of the tree is maximum when each node has minimum number of the subtree pointers, q m / 2 . Note:If number of nodes in B-tree equal 2,000,000 (2 million) and m=200 then maximum height of B-tree is 3, where as the binary tree would be of height 20.
    5. 5. Search in a B-Tree Search in a B-tree is similar to the search in BST except that in B- tree we make a multiway branching decision instead of binary branching in BST. 25 62 12 19 32 39 73 84 3 5 15 17 21 23 30 31 34 37 45 51 69 71 75 79 90 94 Search key 71
    6. 6. B-Tree Insert Operation Insertion in B-tree is more complicated than in BST. In BST, the keys are added in top down fashion resulting in an unbalanced tree. B-tree is built bottom up, the keys are added in the leaf node, if the leaf node is full another node is created, keys are evenly distributed and middle key is promoted to the parent. If parent is full, the process is repeated. B-tree can also be built in top down fashion using pre-splitting technique.
    7. 7. Basic Idea : Insertion Find position for the key in the appropriate leaf nodeInsert key in order Is nodeand adjust pointer No full ? yes Split node: If parent is full • Create a new node • Move half of the keys from the full node to the new node and adjust pointers • Promote the median key (before split) to the parent Split guarantees that each node has m/ 2 1 keys.
    8. 8. Cases in B-Tree Insert Operation In B-tree insertion we have the following cases: ◦ Case 1: The leaf node has room for the new key. ◦ Case 2: The leaf in which key is to be placed is full.  This case can lead to the increase in tree height.
    9. 9. B-Tree Insert Operation Case 1: The leaf node has room for the new key. Find appropriate leaf Insert 3 node for key 3 3 10 25 5 8 14 19 20 23 32 38 Insert 3 in order

    13. 13. B-Tree Delete Operation Deletion is analogous to insertion, but a little more complicated. Two major cases ◦ Case 1: Deletion from leaf node ◦ Case 2: Deletion from non-leaf node  Apply delete by copy technique used in BST, this will reduce this case to case 1.  In delete by copy, the key to be deleted is replaced by the largest key in the right subtree or smallest in left subtree (which is always a leaf).
    14. 14. B-Tree Delete Operation Leaf node deletion cases: ◦ After deletion node is at least half full. ◦ After deletion underflow occurs  Redistribute: if number of keys in siblings > 2 . m 1  Merge nodes if number of keys in siblings < m 2 1 .  Merging leads to decrease in tree height.

    19. 19. B-Tree V/s Binary Tree Advantages Efficient in real life problems where number of records is very large (i.e. large datasets) Frees up RAM as all nodes located on secondary memory B Tree reduces depth of the tree hence, desired record is located faster Disadvantages Decision process at each node is more complicated in a B-tree A sophisticated program is required to execute the operations in a B-tree Fig. Comparison of linear growth rate vs. logarithmic growth rate
    20. 20. The End
    21. 21. Insert AlgorithmInsert• Cannot just create a new leaf node and insert it– resulting tree is not B-tree• Insert new key into an existing leaf node• If leaf node is full– Split full node y (with 2t-1) keys around its mediankeyt[y] into two nodes each having t-1 keys– Move the median key into y’s parent.– If parent is full, recursively split, all the way to the rootnode if necessary.– If root is full, split root - height of tree increase by one.
    22. 22. Delete Algorithm• If k is in an internal node, swap k with its inordersuccessor (in a leaf node) then delete k from theleaf node.• Deleting k from a leaf x may cause n[x]<t-1.– if the left sibling has more than t-1 elements, we cantransfer an element from there to retain the propertyn[x]≥t-1. To retain the order of the elements, this isdone by moving the largest element in the left sibling tothe parent and moving the parent to the left mostposition in x
    23. 23. Delete Algorithm– else, if right sibling has more than t-1 element,transfer from right sibling through the parent.– else, merge x with left sibling. One pointerfrom the parent needs to be removed in thiscase. This is done by moving the parentelement into the new merged node. If the parentnow has fewer than t-1 element, recurse on theparent.• Height of the tree may be reduced by 1 ifroot contains no element after delete.• Can also do delete in one pass down, similarto insert (see textbook).

    27. 27. Height of B-Tree The height of B-tree is minimum if all nodes are full, thus we have m-1 keys in the root + m(m-1) keys on the second level +……+ mh-1(m-1) keys in the leaf nodes (m - 1) m(m - 1) m 2 (m - 1) m h-1 (m - 1) h 1 h 1 i ( m 1)m ( m 1) mi i 0 i 0 Applyingt heformulaof geomet ricprogression mh 1 ( m 1) m 1 mh 1 T hus, t henumber of keysin B - T reeof height h is given as : n mh 1 h logm ( n 1) n 1 logm ( n 1) h logq 1 2
