This textbook provides an introduction to data structures and the Standard Template Library (STL), which has been recently accepted by the C++ Standards Committee. It provides a carefully integrated discussion of general data structures together with their implementation and use in the STL, thus teaching readers the important features of abstraction whilst using the STL to develop applications.

Learn data structures and the C++ Standard Template Library together! Teaches the advanced C++ features you need to know first Easy techniques based on real code examples Supercharge C++ code performance-and your own productivity! Supercharge your C++ code! Master data structures and STL together! When you understand data structures, you can command many of the most powerful, efficient algorithms ever created! Better yet, the C++ Standard Template Library bundles dozens of these advanced algorithms in a simple, reliable, easy-to-use form. Now, you can learn data structures and STL together, with the first book that teaches them both: Data Structures with STL! Renowned programming instructors William Murray and Chris Pappas begin with the intermediate-to-advanced C++ features you'll need to know first, including namespaces, void * pointers, generic types, and template development. Then, using extensive code examples, they introduce every aspect of working with data structures and STL: Understanding STL extensible framework and components Working with STL: containers, iterators, and algorithms Dynamic memory allocation/deallocation STL-based portable solutions for array creation, element insertion/deletion, sorting, element output, and more Clean, seamless integration of iostreams and exception handling Now's your chance to supercharge the performance and reliability of all your C++ code--and dramatically enhance your own productivity at the same time. Data Structures with STL shows you how-more simply and easily than you ever thought possible!
Data structures and algorithms are used in every application written, and with the complexity of 3D virtual worlds and game environments growing every year, the need to manage this data efficiently is critical for programmers of all levels. For game devel
This book takes a minimalist approach to the traditional data structures course. It covers only those topics that are absolutely essential; the more esoteric structures and algorithms are left for later study. Suitable for an introductory data structures course or self-study, this book is written from the ground up in C++ (not translated from a Java-based text), and uses features of the C++ Standard Template Library to illustrate important concepts. A unique feature of the text is its use of literate programming techniques (originally developed by Donald Knuth) to present the sample code in a way that keeps the code from overwhelming the accompanying explanations. This book is suitable for an undergraduate data structures course using C++ or for developers needing review. Features • Takes a “minimalist” approach to the material that presents only essential concepts. This enables readers to focus on (and remember) just what they’ll need. • Uses select features of the C++11 standard to simplify the sample code and make it easier to understand. • Connects the concepts directly to the classes provided the Standard Template Library (STL), and shows how these classes can be implemented in C++. • Uses “literate programming” techniques that allow the presentation of the sample code to more clearly show the details of the code as well as how the pieces fit together.

Genre: Data structures (Computer science).
Teaches the fundamentals of Data Structures and their implementations. This work uses C++ as the language of instruction. Programming projects, at the end of each chapter, allow students to develop and implement their own data structures or to extend or apply data structures introduced in the chapter.
Facts101 is your complete guide to Data Structures Using C++. In this book, you will learn topics such as as those in your book plus much more. With key features such as key terms, people and places, Facts101 gives you all the information you need to prepare for your next exam. Our practice tests are specific to the textbook and we have designed tools to make the most of your limited study time.
Strengthen your understanding of data structures and their algorithms for the foundation you need to successfully design, implement and maintain virtually any software system. Theoretical, yet practical, DATA STRUCUTRES AND ALGORITHMS IN C++, 4E by experienced author Adam Drosdek highlights the fundamental connection between data structures and their algorithms, giving equal weight to the practical implementation of data structures and the theoretical analysis of algorithms and their efficiency. This edition provides critical new coverage of treaps, k-d trees and k-d B-trees, generational garbage collection, and other advanced topics such as sorting methods and a new hashing technique. Abundant C++ code examples and a variety of case studies provide valuable insights into data structures implementation. DATA STRUCTURES AND ALGORITHMS IN C++ provides the balance of theory and practice to prepare readers for a variety of applications in a modern, object-oriented paradigm.

Although there are many advanced and specialized texts and handbooks on algorithms, until now there was no book that focused exclusively on the wide variety of data structures that have been reported in the literature. The Handbook of Data Structures and Applications responds to the needs of students, professionals, and researchers who need a mainstream reference on data structures by providing a comprehensive survey of data structures of various types. Divided into seven parts, the text begins with a review of introductory material, followed by a discussion of well-known classes of data structures, Priority Queues, Dictionary Structures, and Multidimensional structures. The editors next analyze miscellaneous data structures, which are well-known structures that elude easy classification. The book then addresses mechanisms and tools that were developed to facilitate the use of data structures in real programs. It concludes with an examination of the applications of data structures. The Handbook is invaluable in suggesting new ideas for research in data structures, and for revealing application contexts in which they can be deployed. Practitioners devising algorithms will gain insight into organizing data, allowing them to solve algorithmic problems more efficiently.
