Bidirectional map

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In computer science, a bidirectional map is an associative data structure in which the (key, value) pairs form a one-to-one correspondence. Thus the binary relation is functional in each direction: value can also act as a key to key. A pair (a, b) thus provides a unique coupling between a and b so that b can be found when a is used as a key and a can be found when b is used as a key.
