Learn the latest object-oriented design patterns needed to create sound software designs Author Bruno Preiss presents the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms from a modern, object-oriented perspective. The text promotes object-oriented design using C++ and illustrates the use of the latest object-oriented design patterns. Virtually all the data structures are discussed in the context of a single class hierarchy. This framework clearly shows the relationships between data structures and illustrates how polymorphism and inheritance can be used effectively. Key Features of the Text All data structures are presented using a common framework. This clearly shows the relationship between the data structures and how they are implemented. Object-oriented design patterns are used to demonstrate how a good design fits together and transcends the problem at hand. A single C++ software design is used throughout the text to provide a better understanding of the operation of complicated data structures. Just-in-time presentation of mathematical analysis techniques introduces students to mathematical concepts as needed.

An object-oriented learning framework for creating good software design.
Bruno Preiss presents readers with a modern, object-oriented perspective for looking at data structures and algorithms, clearly showing how to use polymorphism and inheritance, and including fragments from working and tested programs.
Ein neues Lehrbuch, das dem Studenten das Gebiet der Datenstrukturen und Algorithmen von einem modernen, objektorientierten Standpunkt her nahe bringt. Präzise dargestellt sind die Beziehungen zwischen Datenstrukturen sowie Möglichkeiten, Polymorphismen und Vererbung effektiv zu nutzen. Das Material orientiert sich einheitlich an C++; für alle Übungsaufgaben im Text sind Lösungen gegeben. (8/98)
