Handbook of Data Structures and Applicationsby Dinesh P. Mehta
Synopses & Reviews
Handbook of Data Structures and Applications responds to the needs of data structure and algorithm researchers by providing a comprehensive survey of data structures of various types. Divided into seven parts, the text begins with a review of introductory material, followed by a discussion of well-know classes of data structures, Priority Queues, Dictionary Structures, and Multidimensional structures. It next analyzes miscellaneous data structures, which are well-known structures that elude easy classification. The book then addresses mechanisms and tools that were developed to facilitate the use of data structures in real programs. It concludes with an examination applications of data structures.
Book News Annotation:
Reflecting progress in the field in the decades since Donald Knuth's work in the late 1960s defined data structures and Niklaus Wirth stated that "Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs," this handbook presents a comprehensive survey. Mehta (Colorado School of Mines) and Sahni (U. of Florida) present introductory material, which is followed by discussion of priority queues, dictionary structures, and multidimensional structures--all well known--and a section addressing less-easily classified data structures. These theoretical chapters lead to a more practical discussion of mechanisms and tools for using the structures, and a final section on applications.
