Storage Overhead of O-trees, B-trees, and Prefix B-trees: A Comparative Analysis

By Ratko Orlandic and Hosam M. Mahmoud


The O-tree is an indexing mechanism closely related to B-trees and Prefix B-trees. In this paper we derive the expected storage overhead of O-Trees under the standard Bernoulli model of randomness, compare the results with the expected overhead of B-trees and Prefix B-trees under the same conditions, and assess the expected relative improvements
