Publisher: CRC Press
View: 9283A student-friendly text, A Concise Introduction to Data Structures Using Java takes a developmental approach, starting with simpler concepts first and then building toward greater complexity. Important topics, such as linked lists, are introduced gradually and revisited with increasing depth. More code and guidance are provided at the beginning, allowing students time to adapt to Java while also beginning to learn data structures. As students develop fluency in Java, less code is provided and more algorithms are outlined in pseudocode. The text is designed to support a second course in computer science with an emphasis on elementary data structures. The clear, concise explanations encourage students to read and engage with the material, while partial implementations of most data structures give instructors the flexibility to develop some methods as examples and assign others as exercises. The book also supplies an introductory chapter on Java basics that allows students who are unfamiliar with Java to quickly get up to speed. The book helps students become familiar with how to use, design, implement, and analyze data structures, an important step on the path to becoming skilled software developers.

Data Structures in Java for the Principled Programmer
Author: Duane A. Bailey
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
View: 3967The second edition of Duane Bailey's Java Structures considers the design, implementation, and use of data structures using Java 2. The structure package, a collection of nearly 100 different classes implementing a wide variety of data structures, has been the basis of Java Structures for more than five years. Thousands of faculty, students, researchers, industrial and recreational programmers have investigated this lean and well tested approach to data structure design. In this edition, the text develops a heavily tested package that is independent of but consistent with the Collection package offered by Sun. In many cases, the variety of implementations provides the programmer choices of data structure that are not available with the Collection system. For those curricula that make use of the Collection package, the structure package can be easily integrated into existing applications. All classes are fully documented and make consistent use of pre- and post-conditioning, and include support for assertion testing. The second edition also brings a wealth of new resources, including a large number of new and original exercises and drill problems. Throughout the text, exercises appear in the running text to direct a deeper consideration of subtle issues by students. Perhaps the most innovative feature (first found in Bailey's Java Elements) is the inclusion of more than a dozen original lab exercises that focus on interesting and often classic problems of computer science.All code for the book's examples, documentation, and the STRUCTURE package is posted on the book's website at www.mhhe.com/javastructures.

View: 8609The design and analysis of efficient data structures has long been recognized as a key component of the Computer Science curriculum. Goodrich, Tomassia and Goldwasser's approach to this classic topic is based on the object-oriented paradigm as the framework of choice for the design of data structures. For each ADT presented in the text, the authors provide an associated Java interface. Concrete data structures realizing the ADTs are provided as Java classes implementing the interfaces. The Java code implementing fundamental data structures in this book is organized in a single Java package, net.datastructures. This package forms a coherent library of data structures and algorithms in Java specifically designed for educational purposes in a way that is complimentary with the Java Collections Framework.

A Multimedia Approach
Author: Mark Guzdial,Barbara Ericson
Publisher: Prentice Hall
View: 1777Problem Solving with Data Structures, First Edition is not a traditional data structures textbook that teaches concepts in an abstract, and often dry, context that focuses on data structures using numbers. Instead, this book takes a more creative approach that uses media and simulations (specifically, trees and linked lists of images and music), to make concepts more concrete, more relatable, and therefore much more motivating for students. This book is appropriate for both majors and non-majors. It provides an introduction to object-oriented programming in Java, arrays, linked lists, trees, stacks, queues, lists, maps, and heaps. It also covers an existing simulation package (Greenfoot) and how to create continuous and discrete event simulations.

View: 9384Using C, this book develops the concepts and theory of data structures and algorithm analysis step by step, proceeding from concrete examples to abstract principles. The material is unified by the use of recurring themes such as efficiency, recursion, representation and trade-offs. Important software engineering concepts are also covered, including modularity, abstract data types and information hiding, as well as new developments such as risk-based software, life cycle models and object-oriented programming.

View: 5880Using Java(TM) 1.1, Professor Thomas A. Standish teaches the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms. With this exciting new language, Standish takes a fresh look at the subject matter. New challenges arise any time a new language is used, and the author meets these challenges. For example, although Java is a language without explicit pointers, this book offers pointer diagrams to help students visualize, reason about, and understand this major Data Structures topic. Standish's clear presentation helps readers tie the many concepts of data structures together with recurring themes. Central ideas - such as modularity, levels of abstraction, efficiency, and tradeoffs - serve as integrators in the book in order to tie the material together conceptually and to reveal its underlying unity and interrelationships. Highlights Reviews the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and Java in Chapter 2 and Appendix A, allowing students with no prior knowledge of Java to get up and running quickly. Creates a Java applet with a simple GUI in Chapter 2. Covers recursion early and carefully in Chapter 4 to help students grasp this challenging concept. Includes an introduction to modularity and data abstraction concepts in Chapter 5, and coverage of key software engineering concepts and skills in Appendix C. Contains common pitfall sections at the end of each chapter to help students recognize and avoid potential dangers. ** Instructor's materials are available from your sales rep.

View: 479Although traditional texts present isolated algorithms and data structures, they do not provide a unifying structure and offer little guidance on how to appropriately select among them. Furthermore, these texts furnish little, if any, source code and leave many of the more difficult aspects of the implementation as exercises. A fresh alternative to conventional data structures and algorithms books, A Practical Guide to Data Structures and Algorithms using Java presents comprehensive coverage of fundamental data structures and algorithms in a unifying framework with full implementation details. Recognizing that software development is a top-down process, this applications-centered book provides careful guidance to students and practitioners. Complete and thoroughly integrated Java implementations expose key differences among a wide range of important data structures, including many useful abstract data types not provided in standard Java libraries. Fundamental algorithms appear within the context of their supporting data structures. Case studies, examples, decision trees, and comparison charts throughout the stylized presentation illustrate and support an efficient methodology for the careful selection and application of data structures and algorithms. Appendices summarize major features of the Java programming language, introduce asymptotic notation and complexity analysis, and discuss design patterns applied in the book. A true marriage of theory and practice, this book sets a new standard as a comprehensive practical guide to data structures and algorithms. Practitioners and students will reach for this book often to quickly identify the best data structure or algorithm for their applications.
