I learned about single and double rotations of trees in data structures class. But I know I am not seeing the big picture of rotations. I got some questions that been in my head that were left unanswered.


How do you come up with the algorithm for rotating? On my exam, I wrote the rotation code very similar to a swap function only with tree type variables.


Are rotations used in game programming or when to use rotations in certain applications?


I know the terminologies for a tree like depth, height, level but it does not seem to be helping me understand rotations conceptually and programming-wise.
