Skiplists are a simpler alternative to balanced binary trees

Project Description

A skip list is a data structure for storing a sorted list
of items using a hierarchy of linked lists that connect increasingly sparse subsequences of the items. These auxiliary lists allow item lookup with efficiency comparable to balanced binary search trees (that is, with number of probes proportional to log n instead of n).
