We study the problem of maintaining a dynamic ordered set subject to insertions, deletions, and traversals of k consecutive elements. This problem is trivially solved on a RAM and on a simple two-level memory hierarchy. We explore this traversal problem on more realistic memory models: the cache-oblivious model, which applies to unknown and multi-level memory hierarchies, and sequential-access models, where sequential block transfers are less expensive than random block transfers.
