HashSet<E> class Null safety

An unordered hash-table based Set implementation.

The elements of a HashSet must have consistent equality and hashCode implementations. This means that the equals operation must define a stable equivalence relation on the elements (reflexive, symmetric, transitive, and consistent over time), and that the hashCode must consistent with equality, so that the same for objects that are considered equal.

Most simple operations on HashSet are done in (potentially amortized) constant time: add, contains, remove, and length, provided the hash codes of objects are well distributed.

The iteration order of the set is not specified and depends on the hashcodes of the provided elements. However, the order is stable: multiple iterations over the same set produce the same order, as long as the set is not modified.
