A binary tree is a data structure used in computer science to organize and store data. It consists of nodes connected by edges, where each node can have at most two children nodes. The topmost node in a binary tree is called the root, and the nodes with no children are called leaf nodes. Binary trees are commonly used in search algorithms, sorting algorithms, and data compression algorithms.
