Fibonacci heap

In computer science, a Fibonacci Heap is a set of min-heap-ordered-trees. The Fibonacci heaps are similar to the binomial heaps and would have similar properties.

A Fibonacci heap has a minimum node, usually at the root of a tree containing a minimum key. The roots of all trees are usually linked using a circular, doubly linked list called the root list.

The Fibonacci heap's potential performance to do operations is given by

Peformance = t + 2m

where t is the number of trees in the root list of a Fibonacci heap, and m is the number of marked nodes.
