/**
* union find data structure for javascript
*
* In computer science, a disjoint-set data structure, also called a union–find data structure or merge–find set,
* is a data structure that stores a collection of disjoint (non-overlapping) sets. Equivalently, it stores a partition
* of a set into disjoint subsets. It provides operations for adding new sets, merging sets (replacing them by their union),
* and finding a representative member of a set.
* The last operation allows to find out efficiently if any two elements are in the same or different sets.
*
* Disjoint-set data structures play a key role in Kruskal's algorithm for finding the minimum spanning tree of a graph.
* The importance of minimum spanning trees means that disjoint-set data structures underlie a wide variety of algorithms.
* In addition, disjoint-set data structures also have applications to symbolic computation, as well in compilers,
* especially for register allocation problems.
*
