In this paper we analyze various search schemes in a major/minor loop bubble memory. Specifically, we study balanced tree search, one-sided height-balanced tree search, and one-sided K-Keight-balanced tree search. Two parameters are of interest in the present framework, namely, the number of comparisons and the amount of record movement required for a search. One-sided height- balanced tree search seems to offer the best compromise. Other related issues such as insertion and deletions are also discussed.
