What is Amortized Analysis?

In amortized analysis, we average the time needed to perform a sequence of data structure operations. By this method, we can show that the average cost of an operation is small, even if we have a single operation within the sequence which might be expensive. Amortized analysis guarantees the average performance of each operation in the worst case.
