We study lazy structure sharing as a tool for optimizing equivalence testing on complex data types, We investigate a number of strategies for implementing lazy structure sharing and provide upper and lower bounds on their performance (how quickly they effect ideal configurations of our data structure). In most cases when the strategies are applied to a restricted case of the problem, the bounds provide nontrivial improvements over the naive linear-time equivalence-testing strategy that employs no optimization. Only one strategy, however, which employs path compression, seems promising for the most general case of the problem.
