This book is the second edition of a text designed for undergraduate engineering courses in Data Structures. The treatment of the subject matter in this second edition maintains the same general philosophy as in the first edition but with significant additions. These changes are designed to improve the readability and understandability of all algorithms so that the students acquire a firm grasp of the key concepts.
This book is recommended in Assam Engineering College, Assam, Girijananda Chowdhury Institute of Management and Technology, Assam, Supreme Knowledge Foundation Group, West Bengal, West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT) for B.Tech.
The book provides a complete picture of all important data structures used in modern programming practice.
It shows :
various ways of representing a data structure
different operations to manage a data structure
several applications of a data structure
The algorithms are presented in English-like constructs for ease of comprehension by students, though all of them have been implemented separately in C language to test their correctness.
Key Features :
Red-black tree and spray tree are discussed in detail
Includes a new chapter on Sorting
Includes a new chapter on Searching
Includes a new appendix on Analysis of Algorithms for those who may be unfamiliar with the concepts of algorithms
Provides numerous section-wise assignments in each chapter
Also included are exercises—Problems to Ponder—in each chapter to enhance learning
The book is suitable for students of :
(i) computer science
(ii) computer applications
(iii) information and communication technology (ICT)
(iv) computer science and engineering.
