It's a list! It's an array! No, it's...

It may depend on the implementation. For example if it's possible to have a
nonlinear collection of nodes then you may want to think about using
container. For example if the same thing can be used as a tree and a list
then it's a container not a sequence. Then again if you can have circular
node references then graph is the correct term. Each node in a graph can
have any number of references to other nodes.
