The effective entropy of next/previous larger/smaller value queries.
We study the problem of storing the minimum number of bits required to answer next/previous larger/smaller value queries on an array $A$ of $n$ numbers, without storing $A$. We show that these queries can be answered by storing at most $3.701 n$ bits. Our result improves the result of Jo and Satti [TCS 2016] that gives an upper bound of $4.088n$ bits for this problem.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
