Abstract

A new data structure for implementing heaps (priority queues) is developed. The structure, Fibonacci heaps (F-heaps), extends the binomial queues proposed by J. Vuillemin (1978). F-heaps support arbitrary deletion from an n-item heap in O(log n) amortized time and all other standard heap operations in O(l) amortized time. Using F-heaps, one can obtain improved running times for several network optimization algorithms.
