Overview

Updated and reorganized, C++ Plus Data Structures, Fourth Edition explores the specifications, applications, and implementations of abstract data types with unmatched accessibility. Written by renowned author and educator Nell Dale, this text provides intuitive explanations that clarify abstract concepts, and approaches the study of data structures with emphasis on computer science theory and software engineering principles. Topics such as modularization, data encapsulation, information hiding, object-oriented decomposition, algorithm analysis, life-cycle software verification models, and data abstraction are carefully presented to foster good software engineering techniques in students from the beginning of their careers. In addition to the meaningful exercises and case studies that define Nell Dale's teaching philosophy, this fourth edition provides an increased emphasis on object-oriented design and an early introduction of object-oriented concepts.
