This introduction to the fundamentals of data structures explores abstract concepts, considers how those concepts are useful in problem solving, explains how the abstractions can be made concrete by using a programming language, and shows how to use the C language for advanced programming and how to develop the advanced features of C++.
Covers the C++ language, featuring a wealth of tested and debugged working programs in C and C++. Explains and analyzes algorithms ? showing step- by-step solutions to real problems. Presents algorithms as intermediaries between English language descriptions and C programs. Covers classes in C++, including function members, inheritance and object orientation, an example of implementing abstract data types in C++, as well as polymorphism.
