Search Algorithm - Interpolation Search
Last updated on September 15, 2023 pm
Interpolation Search is an efficient searching algorithm used to find a specific element within a sorted collection, such as an array. It estimates the likely position of the target element based on its value relative to the minimum and maximum values in the array. By using this estimation, it reduces the search space significantly with each iteration, resulting in faster search times compared to linear search algorithms. However, it requires that the data be uniformly distributed for optimal performance.
