Input: 1 / \ 2 3 Output: 1 2 3 Input: 5 / \ 2 3 \ 6 Output: 5 2 3 6
Approach: The idea is to use Morris Preorder Traversal to traverse the tree in level order traversal.
Observations: There are mainly two observations for the traversal of the tree using Morris preorder traversal. That is –
- In Preorder traversal the left-most nodes of a level are visited first due which it can be used to traverse the tree in level order fashion.
- As we maintain the horizontal distance of the nodes in the top view of the binary tree, Similarly If we maintain the level of the current node and increment or decrement the level accordingly as per the movement, Then the nodes can be traversed easily.
As in the Morris preorder traversal, we connect the right-most node of the left child to its inorder successor to maintain the movement such that we can traverse back to the right child of the parent node after completely exploring the left child of the parent. Therefore, while moving to the rightmost child of the left child we can keep track of the number of the increment in the level to compute the level inorder successor of the child.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
5 2 3 6
- Time Complexity: As in the above approach, every node is touched at max twice due to which the time complexity is O(N), where N is the number of nodes.
- Auxiliary Space: As in the above approach, there is no extra space used due to which auxiliary space used will be O(1)
