A hash function is a function used to map data of arbitrary size to fixed-size values. These values are used to index a hash table, which is used for efficient data storage and retrieval. Hash functions rely on statistical properties of key and function interaction to achieve nearly optimal performance. They are related to other concepts such as checksums and ciphers.
