Strongly universal string hashing is fast

22 Feb 2012Owen KaserDaniel Lemire

We present fast strongly universal string hashing families: they can process data at a rate of 0.2 CPU cycle per byte. Maybe surprisingly, we find that these families---though they require a large buffer of random numbers---are often faster than popular hash functions with weaker theoretical guarantees...
