    Abstract

    The majority problem is a special case of the heavy hitters problem. Whilst the special case of two-colours has been well studied, the average-case performance for arbitrarily many colours has not. In this paper we present an analysis of the average-case performance of the three deterministic algorithms that appear in the literature. For each, we consider straightforward optimisations that, to our knowledge, have not been previously considered.
