Hash Array Mapped Tries (HAMT)

(Phil Bagwell, `Ideal Hash Trees', Technical Report, 2001)

Provided that the hash function have no collisions and yield hash values in a bounded interval, hash tries admit search and update in constant worst-case time (!), bounded by a somewhat larger constant than what one usually finds for the worst-case time of search or replacement, and the amortized time of insertion or deletion, in hash tables. There is no complicated incremental rehashing going on like in some real-time hash tables to attain these constant time bounds; in fact, there is never any rehashing. A little more precisely, `constant' means logarithmically proportional to the length of the interval of the hash values, or, practically, linearly proportional to the number of bits in the hash, with small constant factors.

Yes, this is the same data structure as Clojure uses to implement its hash maps and hash sets. Similarly to Clojure, this code uses hash collision buckets rather than the paper's suggestion of repeating hashes salted by the trie depth.

Although the pronunciation is identical, and despite the title of Bagwell's paper, a hash trie is not a hash tree. Sorry. Nor do these hash tries have any relation to what Knuth calls hash tries.

Except where this is obviously not the case (`hash-table/fold`, for example), every procedure here runs in constant expected time under the assumption of a good key hash function, ignoring the time taken by garbage collection and the time taken by the key hash function and the key equality predicate of the relevant hash trie type. When searching in a hash trie, the key equality predicate is applied to only as many keys extra as share a common hash value with the key whose association is sought. Thus in a hash trie with no collisions, every search involves at most one invocation of the key hash function, and at most one invocation of the key equality predicate.

#### Usage

(import hash-trie)

#### make-hash-trie-type

`make-hash-trie-type``KEY=?``KEY-HASH`procedureConstructor for hash trie types.

`KEY=?`must be a key equality predicate, a procedure of two arguments that returns true to indicate that they are equal and false to indicate that they are not, and that behaves transitively, symmetrically, and reflexively.`KEY-HASH`must be a key hash function that preserves the key equality predicate, i.e. for keys A and B, it must be that if`(KEY=? A B)`, then`(= (KEY-HASH A) (KEY-HASH B))`.

#### hash-trie-type?

`hash-trie-type?``OBJECT`procedureDisjoint type predicate for hash trie types.

#### hash-trie-type/key-equality-predicate

#### hash-trie-type/key-hash-function

`hash-trie-type/key-equality-predicate``HASH-TRIE-TYPE`procedure`hash-trie-type/key-hash-function``HASH-TRIE-TYPE`procedureAccessors for the key equality predicates and key hash functions of hash trie types.

#### make-hash-trie

`make-hash-trie``HASH-TRIE-TYPE`procedureHash trie constructor.

#### hash-trie/type

`hash-trie/type``HASH-TRIE`procedureReturns the

`<hash-trie-type>`of`HASH-TRIE`.

#### hash-trie/count

`hash-trie/count``HASH-TRIE`procedureReturns the number of associations in

`HASH-TRIE`.

#### hash-trie/empty?

`hash-trie/empty?``HASH-TRIE`procedureReturns true if

`HASH-TRIE`has no associations, or false if it has any.

#### hash-trie/search

`hash-trie/search``HASH-TRIE``KEY``IF-FOUND``IF-NOT-FOUND`procedureSearches for an association for

`KEY`in`HASH-TRIE`. If there is one, tail-calls`IF-FOUND`with one argument, the datum associated with key. If not, tail-calls`IF-NOT-FOUND`with zero arguments.

#### hash-trie/lookup

`hash-trie/lookup``HASH-TRIE``KEY``DEFAULT`procedureSearches for an association for

`KEY`in`HASH-TRIE`. If there is one, returns its associated datum; otherwise returns`DEFAULT`.

#### hash-trie/member?

`hash-trie/member?``HASH-TRIE``KEY`procedureReturns true if

`HASH-TRIE`has an association for`KEY`, or false if not.

#### hash-trie/update

`hash-trie/update``HASH-TRIE``KEY``IF-FOUND``IF-NOT-FOUND`procedureSearches for an association for

`KEY`in`HASH-TRIE`. If there is one, tail-calls`IF-FOUND`with three arguments:- the associated datum
- a procedure
`(REPLACE DATUM)`that returns a new hash trie with all the associations in`HASH-TRIE`, but with`DATUM`substituted for the datum associated with`KEY` - a procedure
`(DELETE)`that returns a new hash trie with all the associations in`HASH-TRIE`excluding the association for`KEY`

If there is no such association, tail-calls

`IF-NOT-FOUND`with one argument, a procedure`(INSERT DATUM)`that returns a new hash trie with all the associations in`HASH-TRIE`as well as an association of`DATUM`with`KEY`.

#### hash-trie/insert

`hash-trie/insert``HASH-TRIE``KEY``DATUM`procedureReturns a hash trie with all the associations in

`HASH-TRIE`, but associating`DATUM`with`KEY`, whether`HASH-TRIE`had an association for`KEY`or not.

#### hash-trie/modify

`hash-trie/modify``HASH-TRIE``KEY``DEFAULT``MODIFIER`procedureReturns a hash trie with all the associations in

`HASH-TRIE`, but associating`(MODIFIER D)`with`KEY`if`HASH-TRIE`associated a datum`D`with`KEY`, or associating (`MODIFIER``DEFAULT`) with`KEY`if`HASH-TRIE`had no association for`KEY`.

#### hash-trie/intern

`hash-trie/intern``HASH-TRIE``KEY``GENERATOR`procedureIf

`HASH-TRIE`has an association for`KEY`, returns its associated datum and`HASH-TRIE`. Otherwise, calls (`GENERATOR``KEY`) to obtain a datum`D`, and returns`D`and a hash trie with all the associations in`HASH-TRIE`as well as an association of`D`with`KEY`.

#### hash-trie/delete

`hash-trie/delete``HASH-TRIE``KEY`procedureReturns a hash trie with all the associations in

`HASH-TRIE`, excluding its association, if any, for`KEY`.

#### hash-trie/fold

`hash-trie/fold``HASH-TRIE``INITIAL-VALUE``COMBINATOR`procedureFolds

`HASH-TRIE`by`COMBINATOR`, starting with an initial value`V`of`INITIAL-VALUE`and updating it for each association of a datum`D`with a key`K`, in no particular order, by`(COMBINATOR K D V)`.

#### hash-trie->alist

#### hash-trie/key->list

#### hash-trie/datum->list

`hash-trie->alist``HASH-TRIE`procedure`hash-trie/key->list``HASH-TRIE`procedure`hash-trie/datum->list``HASH-TRIE`procedure`hash-trie->alist`returns a list of pairs, in no particular order, corresponding with the associations in`HASH-TRIE`, with keys in the cars and associated data in the respective cdrs.`hash-trie/key-list`returns a list of all the keys in`HASH-TRIE`, in no particular order.`hash-trie/datum-list`returns a list of all the data in`HASH-TRIE`, in no particular order.

#### alist->hash-trie

`alist->hash-trie``ALIST``HASH-TRIE-TYPE`procedureReturns a hash trie of the given type with the associations listed in

`ALIST`, taking keys from the cars and corresponding data from the respective cdrs.

#### string-hash

#### symbol-hash

`string-hash``STRING`procedure`symbol-hash``SYMBOL`procedure`exact-integer-hash``EXACT-INTEGER`procedure`real-number-hash``REAL-NUMBER`procedure`complex-number-hash``COMPLEX-NUMBER`procedureHash functions for various types of data.

`exact-integer-hash`,`real-number-hash`, and`complex-number-hash`all agree where their domains coincide. The current implementations of these hash functions are all based on the FNV (Fowler-Noll-Vo) family of hash functions, tweaked slightly so that it is more likely to fit into the range of fixnums (small exact integers that can be represented immediately) for most Scheme systems on 32-bit machines.
