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.

The STL is increasingly becoming an extension to the language that will be supported by most if not all C++ compilers. It provides a collection of generic data structures and algorithms and has been adopted by the ANSI committee for the standardisation of C++. Its principal strengths are that: * the STL generalises the concept of iterator * the STL algorithms can be used on regular arrays, thus increasing the applicability of the algorithms * the STL pays particular attention to the efficiency of the algorithms used. This book provides a comprehensive introduction and guide to the STL, pitched at the level of readers already familiar with C++. It presents a thorough overview of the capabilities of the STL, detailed discussions of the use of containers, descriptions of the algorithms and how they may be used, and how the STL may be extended. Finally, an appendix provides an alphabetical reference to the entire STL. As a result, programmers of C++ and students coming to the STL for the first time will find this an extremely useful hands-on text.

Teaches the fundamentals of Data Structures and their implementations. This title uses C++ as the language of instruction, and provides most of the data structures in the Standard Template Library. Discussing alternative implementation, it allows students to implement their own data structures or to apply data structures introduced in the chapter.
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 uses a modern object-oriented approach to data structures, unified around the notion of the Standard Template Library (STL) container classes. The book presents a systematic development of data structures supported by numerous examples and complete programs. The authors separate the applications of a data structure from its implementation. Includes an applied study of interesting and classical algorithms that illustrate the data structures using only simple mathematical concepts (Big-O notation is introduced intuitively); Many additional figures are integrated into the presentation; ADT (Abstract Data Type) for each data structure—immediately used to solve appropriate problems; Early and accessible introduction to templates and iterators; Use of modern C++ constructs in developing data structures and their applications provides enough language detail to sufficiently understand the constructs.
For C++ programmers, the ANSI C++ Standard Template Library (STL) represents a breakthrough opportunity to dramatically improve their productivity and the reliability of their software at the same time. This book introduces the STL in detail, showing how to exploit it most effectively, and teaching developers new techniques for extending the STL to the construction of powerful, optimized new components. Dr. Ulrich Breymann focuses on the heart of the ANSI C++ STL: its containers, functional objects, and especially the iterators and containers that are essential to the working of the STL's standard algorithms. With the foundation in place, he presents in-depth coverage of the library's standard algorithms, illustrating almost every one with a practical example. Section III, the majority of the book, takes Designing Components with the C++ STL far beyond any previous STL book. It offers extensive, in-depth examples and applications that use STL as a foundation for more complex data structures and algorithms, and more powerful abstract data types. Previous Edition ISBN: 0-201-17816-8 -- A complete introduction to the STL and how to make the most of it -- Breakthrough techniques for using the STL as the foundation for even more powerful, faster components -- with detailed examples -- Covers all of the STL's standard algorithms -- with many practical examples and code samples

Standard Template Libraries (STL) were created to provide C++ programmers with a suite of rusable programs, or lines of code, that could be used by everyone to increase programming productivity and quality. This book is the definitive reference on C++ programming using STL, as it was written by the team that created the library.
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.

Excerpt: The Standard Template Library (STL) is a software library extending the capabilities of C++ Standard Library. It provides four components called algorithms, containers, functors, and iterators. More specifically, the C++ Standard Library is based on the STL published by SGI. Both include some features not found in the other. SGI's STL is rigidly specified as a set of headers, while ISO C++ does not specify header content, and allows implementation either in the headers, or in a true library. The STL provides a ready-made set of common classes for C++, such as containers and associative arrays, that can be used with any built-in type and with any user-defined type that supports some elementary operations (such as copying and assignment). STL algorithms are independent of containers, which significantly reduces the complexity of the library. The STL achieves its results through the use of templates. This approach provides compile-time polymorphism that is often more efficient than traditional run-time polymorphism. Modern C++ compilers are tuned to minimize any abstraction penalty arising from heavy use of the STL. The STL was created as the first library of generic algorithms and data structures for C++, with four ideas in mind: generic programming, abstractness without loss of efficiency, the Von Neumann computation model, and value semantics. The STL contains sequence containers and associative containers. The standard sequence containers include, and . The standard associative containers are,, and . There are also container adaptors, and, that are containers with specific interface, using other con...
