Monotonically labelled ordered trees and multidimensional binary trees

  • Rainer Kemp
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 710)


The classical one-to-one correspondence between (unlabelled) ordered trees with n nodes and (unlabelled) extended binary trees with (2n−1) nodes is generalized to monotonically labelled ordered trees and multidimensional extended binary trees.
