Résumé : The purpose of this paper is to analyze the maxima properties (value and position) of some data structures. Our theorems concern the distribution of these random variables. Previously known results usually dealt with the mean and sometimes the variance of the random variables. Many of our results rely on diffusion techniques. This is a very powerful tool that has already been used with some success in algorithm complexity analysis.
