Overview

In this second edition of his best-selling book, Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C, Mark Allen Weiss, continues to refine and enhance his innovative approach to algorithms and data structures. Using a C implementation, he highlights conceptual topics, focusing on ADTs and the analysis of algorithms for efficiency as well as performance and running time. Dr. Weiss also distinguishes Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C with the extensive use of figures and examples showing the successive stages of an algorithm, his engaging writing style, and a logical organization of topics. Features

  • Includes a chapter on algorithm and design techniques that covers greedy algorithms, divide and conquer algorithms, dynamic programming, randomized algorithms, and backtracking

  • Presents current topics and newer data structures such as Fibonacci heaps, skew heaps, binomial queues, skip lists, and splay trees

  • Contains a chapter on amortized analysis that examines the advanced data structures presented earlier in the book

  • Provides a new chapter on advanced data structures and their implementation covering red black trees, top down splay trees, treaps, k-d trees, pairing heaps, and more

  • Incorporates new results on the average case analysis of heapsort

  • Offers source code from example programs via anonymous FTP
