Ebook Descriptions

Create sound software designs with data structures that use modern object-oriented design patterns! Author Bruno Preiss presents the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms from a modern, object-oriented perspective. The text promotes object-oriented design using Java and illustrates the use of the latest object-oriented design patterns. Virtually all the data structures are discussed in the context of a single class hierarchy. This framework clearly shows the relationships between data structures and illustrates how polymorphism and inheritance can be used effectively.



Key Features of the Text


This book is about the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms -- the basic elements from which large and complex software artifacts are built. The target is to teach you to develop a solid understanding of a data structure, which requires three things.

First, you will learn how the information is arranged in the memory of the computer. Second, you will learn the algorithms for manipulating the information contained in the data structure. And third, you will learn the performance characteristics of the data structure so that when called upon to select a suitable data structure for a particular application, you will be able to make an appropriate decision.

This book also illustrates object-oriented design and it promotes the use of common, object-oriented design patterns. The algorithms and data structures in the book are presented in the Java programming language. Virtually all the data structures are presented in the context of a single class hierarchy. This commitment to a single design allows the programs presented in the later chapters to build upon the programs presented in the earlier chapters.
