# Proto Van Emde Boas Tree | Set 5 | Queries: Minimum, Maximum

Please check previous sets of Proto Van Emde Boas Tree article first. It is highly recommended.

Procedure for finding minimum:

1. Base Case: If the size of Proto-VEB is 2 then we will return smallest key present in the cluster if no keys present then we will return -1 as the symbol that no keys are present.
2. Recursion:
• We will start recursion over summary until we reach the first true value(In the code, first not nullptr in the summary cluster) which shows that there is a key present in that cluster.
• Now We will find the position of the key in that cluster using again recursively call over a cluster to find the first true value (In the code, first not nullptr in the cluster) in a cluster as we have done above.
• Finally, we will return the index of that key according to cluster number we get from procedure over summary and position we get from the procedure over the cluster in the last step.

See the image below for the basic understanding of the operation:

Follow the instructions in order of numberings. You can easily get the idea of Maximum from the minimum procedure. See the image below:

        cout << maximum(hello) << endl;  }

Both Minimum and Maximum query runs in O(log2(u)) time complexity.

Recurrence Relation:

T(u) = 2T( ) + O(1)
