    Database Search Algorithm


    I've given a project to implement the fastest database search algorithm in C.

    So my question is does anyone know the fastest algorithm? and perhaps an example source code?

    I've searched Google and it gives me Grover's Quantum Algorithm.

    Is that the fastest? Any other algorithm or book I should check out?
