Revision Reconciliation Algorithm

Hi, I'm trying to understand how Subversion determines the changes
that have occurred between two revision and I was wondering if someone
in here could help understand how it all works. For example, say the
latest (head) revision in the svn repository is 210 and my working
copy is 103. My question is how does subversion calculate all the
adds/updates/removes my working copy needs to bring it's revision
state to 210? What algorithm or techniques does subversion use to
calculate deltas between two revisions and how efficient is it?

Thanks.
