Interpolation search vs Binary search
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 22 Mar, 2017

Interpolation search works better than Binary Search for a sorted and uniformly distributed array.

On average the interpolation search makes about log(log(n)) comparisons (if the elements are uniformly distributed), where n is the number of elements to be searched. In the worst case (for instance where the numerical values of the keys increase exponentially) it can make up to O(n) comparisons.
