Data Structures Using Javais an introduction to data structure abstraction. It provides information on abstract concepts and shows students how those concepts are useful in problem solving. It goes on to demonstrate that abstractions can be made concrete by using Java. Java is an appropriate language to use in teaching the concepts of data abstraction since it contains the control structures necessary to make programs readable and allows basic data structures such as stacks, linked lists and trees to be implemented in a variety of ways. Data Structures Using Javaguides the reader through the steps of how to identify a problem, implement a solution, and apply the solution to a real-world situation. This book is also a valuable reference for professional programmers. Key Features: Algorithms are explained in detail and analyzed showing step-by-step solutions to real-world problems. Issues and pitfalls that may occur as algorithms are transformed into programs are discussed. Each data structure is implemented in a variety of ways that demonstrate the real choices and trade-offs programmers face. Concepts in the text are illustrated by several examples (such as postfix notation, multiword arithmetic, etc.). Additional supplementary materials are available to the instructor. These include chapter objectives, PowerPoint slides of most of the figures in the text, solutions (and, when applicable, working code) to the end-of-chapter exercises, and working versions of all the code in the text.Augenstein, Moshe J. is the author of 'Data Structures Using Java' with ISBN 9780130477217 and ISBN 0130477214.
