Abstract A new linear search for hash tables whose increment step is a function of the key being addressed is presented. Comparisons with known methods are given, in terms of efficiency and computation complexity. In particular, the new method applies to tables of size n = 2r. It allows full table searching, and practically eliminates primary clustering at a very low cost.
