About

Features

  • emphasizes both the abstract and the concrete versions of a concept, so that students learn about the concept itself, its implementation, and its application.
  • explains and analyzes algorithms — showing step-by-step solutions to real problems.
  • presents algorithms as intermediaries between English language descriptions and C programs. The algorithms:
    • are written in C style, interspersed with English.
    • allow students to focus on the method used to solve a problem without concern about declaration of variables and the peculiarities of real languages.
    • In transforming an algorithm into a program, introduces these issues and points out the pitfalls which accompany them.
  • implements each data structure in a variety of ways to show trade-offs and advantages.
  • NEW—covers the C++ language.
    • requires no specific background in C++.
    • introduces the features of C++ in early chapters, showing how they can be used in implementing data structures.
    • covers classes in C++, including function members, inheritance and object orientation, an example of implementing abstract data types in C++, as well as polymorphism.
    • adds an implementation of stacks in C++ using templates, showing how complex data structures can be parameterized for different base types.
    • shows how linked lists can be implemented in C++, showing the limitations, as well as the power, of encapsulation in implementing data structures. Also discusses C++ dynamic allocation and freeing of storage.
  • contains a wealth of tested and debugged programs and algorithms.
    • NEW—revises all C programs to meet ANSI standards.
  • provides nearly 400 problems/exercises that vary widely in type and difficulty:
    • drill exercises.
    • exercises that require modification of programs or algorithms.
    • more challenging exercises.
    • groups of successive exercises that include the complete development of a new topic and that can be used as the basis for a term project.
  • features a large bibliography of both C and C++ sources.

This introduction to the fundamentals of data structures explores abstract concepts, considers how those concepts are useful in problem solving, explains how the abstractions can be made concrete by using a programming language, and shows how to use the C language for advanced programming and how to develop the advanced features of C++. KEY TOPICS: Covers the C++ language, featuring a wealth of tested and debugged working programs in C and C++. Explains and analyzes algorithms — showing step- by-step solutions to real problems. Presents algorithms as intermediaries between English language descriptions and C programs. Covers classes in C++, including function members, inheritance and object orientation, an example of implementing abstract data types in C++, as well as polymorphism.
