Abstract

The starting point of this paper is a new, purely functional, simple and efficient data structure combining a search tree and a priority queue, which we call a priority search tree. The salient feature of priority search trees is that they offer a decrease-key operation, something that is missing from other simple, purely functional priority queue implementations. As two applications of this data structure we verify purely functional, simple and efficient implementations of Prim's and Dijkstra's algorithms. This constitutes the first verification of an executable and even efficient version of Prim's algorithm.
