In many cases of algorithm design, the comparison-based model of computation is not the obvious choice. In this chapter, we show how to design data structures with very good complexity on a realistic model of computation where keys are regarded as binary strings, each one contained in one or more machine words (registers). This model is sometimes referred to as the RAM model, and it may be argued that it reflects real computers more accurately than the comparison-based model.
