Data Structures Featuring C++ a Programmer's Perspective: Data Structures in C++

Overview

This is a book for students and instructors who love programming in object-oriented style. The authors understand how to write object-oriented code and how to explain it to students. The strength of the book comes from the single-minded focus that we have had throughout the writing of it, on explaining the code thoroughly and consistently. Normally, books on data structures and software in general, do an excellent job explaining the algorithm but somehow fail to follow up the rigor of the algorithm with the ...

Overview

This is a book for students and instructors who love programming in object-oriented style. The authors understand how to write object-oriented code and how to explain it to students. The strength of the book comes from the single-minded focus that we have had throughout the writing of it, on explaining the code thoroughly and consistently. Normally, books on data structures and software in general, do an excellent job explaining the algorithm but somehow fail to follow up the rigor of the algorithm with the clarity of the code resulting from it. It is almost as if the designers wave a wand and utter the magic words "abraca dabra" and the code jumps out. We have consciously made an effort to connect the linkages that exist naturally between different phases of data structures design, and implementation. The second, perhaps more important, development is the use of STL or Standard Template Library in some texts. Experience professors who teach data structures are pretty evenly split between teaching data structures by designing them ground up and teaching data structures using STL. ...

Meet the Author

Sridhar Radhakrishnan is a Professor in the School of Computer Science at The University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma since the Fall of 1990. Prior to joining The University of Oklahoma, he completed his PhD degree in Computer Science from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He has been teaching the Sophomore level course in Data Structures for many years that resulted in the creation of this textbook. He has published widely and his publications appear in numerous IEEE publications and other professional conferences and journals.

Lee Wise has been a software architect and analytics developer for MSCI, Inc., and a predecessor company, RiskMetrics Group, Inc., since 1998. Her particular project, written in C++, has grown from the work of a single programmer to the work of dozens spread across the planet, and from a monolithic program running on a single box to distributed applications running on thousands of cores, handling terabytes of data and processing millions of complex queries per day.

Chandra N. Sekharan is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Loyola University Chicago. Prior to joining Loyola University Chicago in 1993, he was with the Center for Parallel Computation, Department of Computer Science at University of Central Florida, Orlando. He completed his PhD degree in Mathematical Sciences at Clemson University under the supervision of Stephen Hedetniemi. Prof. Sekharan has taught many courses in computer science at both undergraduate and graduate levels. His recent focus in teaching has been on introducing concepts of parallel computing in the CS2 course at Loyola. He has published in IEEE and ACM conferences extensively in the areas of parallel computation, graph algorithms and mobile networking.
