About the Authors
  • This text closely examines ideas, analysis, and implementation details of data structures as a specialised topic in applied algorithms. It looks at efficient ways to realise query and update operations on sets of numbers, intervals, or strings by various data structures, including: search trees; structures for sets of intervals or piece-wise constant functions; orthogonal range search structures; heaps; union-find structures; dynamization and persistence of structures; structures for strings; and hash tables. Instead of relegating data structures to trivial material used to illustrate object-oriented programming methodology, this is the first volume to show data structures as a crucial algorithmic topic. Numerous code examples in C and more than 500 references make Advanced Data Structures an indispensable text.

    • This is the only graduate-level textbook on data structures
    • Contains discussion of numerous structures with their analysis, code examples, implementation details, and in most cases a complete implementation on author homepage
    • Contains detailed history for each structure with more than 500 references

    Reviews & endorsements

    'I think this book is well suited as a main or supplemental text in a graduate-level data structures course, not to mention an invaluable desk reference for those interested in implementing the advance structures outlined in this book. This book was a joy to review, and deserves a place on my bookshelf.' SIGACT News

    'It can be briefly said that the reader will be dealing with an illustration, diagram, and code packed book, that will do it's best not to confuse but to very well explain one of the toughest computer science subjects, and he will be pleasantly surprised to learn many new-age data structures.' Igor Gvero, Software Engineering Notes
