Offered as an introduction to the field of data structures and algorithms/ Open Data Structures covers the implementation and analysis of data structures for sequences (lists)/ queues/ priority queues/ unordered dictionaries/ ordered dictionaries/ and graphs. Focusing on a mathematically rigorous approach that is fast/ practical/ and efficient/ Morin clearly and briskly presents instruction along with source code. Analyzed and implemented in Java/ the data structures presented in the book include stacks/ queues/ deques/ and lists implemented as arrays and linked-lists; space-efficient implementations of lists; skip lists; hash tables and hash codes; binary search trees including treaps/ scapegoat trees/ and red-black trees; integer searching structures including binary tries/ x-fast tries/ and y-fast tries; heaps/ including implicit binary heaps and randomized meldable heaps; graphs/ including adjacency matrix and adjacency list representations; and B-trees. A modern treatment of an essential computer science topic/ Open Data Structures is a measured balance between classical topics and state-of-the art structures that will serve the needs of all undergraduate students or self-directed learners.
