Description : A skip list implementation in Go
This is a library implementing skip lists for the Go programming
Skip lists are a data structure that can be used in place of balanced
trees. Skip lists use probabilistic balancing rather than strictly
enforced balancing and as a result the algorithms for insertion and
deletion in skip lists are much simpler and significantly faster than
equivalent algorithms for balanced trees.
Skip lists were first described in Pugh, William (June 1990)
(ftp://ftp.cs.umd.edu/pub/skipLists/skiplists.pdf). "Skip lists:
a probabilistic alternative to balanced trees". Communications of the
ACM 33 (6): 668–676
This is a required dependency for golang-github-anacrolix-dms-dev
(ITP#928372) via golang-github-anacrolix-missinggo (ITP#929146).
