Often, a programmer will need to organize data together based on the nature of the problem. In this chapter, these data types that are called “abstract data types” are covered. Abstract data types (ADTs) that are covered include stacks, queues, priority queues, bags, sets, lists, maps and trees. By means of a suitable notation These ADTs are formally depicted in terms of operations that define the ADTs. A big part of the chapter is devoted to trees, since they have more varieties both in terms of representation and type, and since they are often encountered in problems that require computationally efficient structured representations. Regarding trees, various application examples of the tree ADT (like Huffman coding, decision trees etc.) are discussed. The chapter is concluded with how ADTs can be represented in Python.

If none of the lines matches in such a multi-line function definition and the argument is legitimate, that is a clear indication of wrong function definition.
The item is assumed to contain its priority information.
Different then some other definitions we do not consider the emptyset as an instance of a tree. Though denotationally it looks attractive, having an empty set as a tree clutters the subtree definition. That way a dangling edge to a subtree, a child, which does not exist at all, becomes possible.
Wikipedia: In computer science and information science, an ontology is a formal representation of knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships between those concepts. It is used to reason about the entities within that domain, and may be used to describe the domain.
The example is taken from the book Algorithms by Sedgewick.
If the indexing started at  instead of , the left child would have been A[2 k] and the right child would have been A[2 k+1].
