* This newest edition examines fundamental data structures by following a consistent object-oriented framework that builds intuition and analysis skills of data structures and algorithms
* Presents new figures, simpler language, and more practical motivations from real-world scenarios
* Numerous illustrations, Web-based animations, and simplified mathematical analyses help readers quickly learn important concepts
This text for a freshman-sophomore level (CS2) course introduces data structures and algorithms, including their design, analysis, and implementation. It incorporates the object-oriented design paradigm, using Java as the implementation language. Goodrich (computer science, Johns Hopkins U.) and Tamassia (computer science, Brown U.) explain the use of stacks, queues, deques, vectors, lists, sequences, trees, dictionaries, sorting, sets, selection, text processing, and graphs. Concepts in the text are further explained with illustrations, web- based animations, and simplified mathematical analyses. Readers should be somewhat familiar with a high level programming language. Included in the first edition, but absent from the second edition is material more suitable for a junior-senior level (CS7) course. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Professor Goodrich and Tamassia are well-recognized researchers in algorithms and data structures, having published many papers in this field, with applications to Internet computing, information visualization, computer security, and geometric computing. they have served as principal investigators in several joint projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Army Research Office, and the Defense Advanced research Projects Agency. They are also active in educational technology research, with special emphasis on algorithm visualization systems.
Michael Goodrich received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University in 1987. He is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Irvine. Previously, he was a professor at Johns Hopkins University. He is an editor for the International Journal of Computational Geometry & Applications and Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications.
Roberto Tamassia received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1988. He is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Brown University. He is editor-in-chief for the Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications and an editor for Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications. he previously served on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Computers.
In addition to their research accomplishments, the authors also have extensive experience in the classroom. For example, Dr. Goodrich has taught data structures and algorithms courses, including Data Structures as a freshman-sophomore level course and Introduction to Algorithms as an upper level course. He has earned several teaching wards in this capacity. His teaching style is to involve the students in lively interactive classroom session that bring out the intuition and insights behind data structuring and algorithmic techniques. Dr. Tamassia has taught Data Structures and Algorithms as an introductory freshman-level course since 1988. One thing that has set his teaching style apart is his effective use of interactive hypermedia presentations integrated with the Web.
This instructional Web sites, datastructures.net and algorithmdesign.net, supported by Drs. Goodrich and Tamassia, are used as reference material by students, teachers, and professionals worldwide.
