Given an array where elements are sorted in ascending order, convert it to a height balanced BST.

For this problem, a height-balanced binary tree is defined as a binary tree in which the depth of the two subtrees of every node never differ by more than 1.

Example:

Given the sorted array: [-10,-3,0,5,9],

One possible answer is: [0,-3,9,-10,null,5], which represents the following height balanced BST:

0
/ \
-3   9
/   /
-10  5

## Solution: Recursion

Recursively build a BST for a given range.

def build(nums, l, r):
if l > r: return None
m = l + (r – l) / 2
root = TreeNode(nums[m])
root.left = build(nums, l, m – 1)
root.right = build(nums, m + 1, r)
return root

return build(nums, 0, len(nums) – 1)

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(logn)
