## Detailed Description

The implementation is quite straightforward, but the way feature values are handled in order to support efficient joins, deletions and re-arrangement needs to be explained. This is achieved by adding a layer of indirection:

• Call each feature value (either original or obtained by a join operation) a node. Nodes are identified by numbers.
• Call each element of the various arrays (such as VlAIB::Px) an entry.
• Entries are dynamically associated to nodes as specified by VlAIB::nodes. For example, Px[i] refers to the node nodes[i].

Total number of entries (= # active nodes)

## ◆ nlabels

 vl_uint VlAIB::nlabels

Number of labels

## ◆ nodes

 vl_uint* VlAIB::nodes

## ◆ nvalues

 vl_uint VlAIB::nvalues
