Subject Keyword Searching ♦ Hash code ♦ Hash table ♦ Scatter storage
Abstract Introduced is a hash coding method based on fixed-point division rather than multiplication or logical operations. This new method allows the hash table to have almost any length. Also a new method of handling collisions is discussed. Known as quadratic search, this method is faster than random search and free from the “clusters” that build up with a linear search.
