Querying using indexes

Suppose we have an index on names and we query the following: SELECT * FROM users WHERE name = 'Captain Nemo' ORDER BY id ASC LIMIT 1. As you can see in the image, Postgre quickly narrows the results down until it finds the specific node where the name is located. A binary search algorithm is then used to quickly find the desired key in the node. The results are now easily fetched as the index points to the place where 'Captain Nemo' is located in memory.
