Hey guys, I am looking at a proposal for a Thirds search, similar to a binary search but cuts the array in thirds instead of halves, do you think this would be more efficient, or less efficient than a binary search?

@Fieora I don't know but ultimately you have to compare two things to make order. Only if you could do in parallel I guess. But then you would have a binary within tertiary.
Just some interesting talk about algorithms and secondary effects in real life https://youtu.be/pO-brBVRyN8
