For one-semester Introductory courses or two-semester courses in data structures (CS-2) in the departments of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Business, and Management Information Systems. This highly anticipated innovative book by two of the leading CS-1/CS-2 authors focuses the design specification and implementation of ADTs. This book was created from the ground up with objects and Java in mind and shows students how to use and implement key data organizations. Its unique object oriented presentation divides the material into short bite size segments that are organized into small chapters. This makes learning easier for the student and allows for teaching flexibility.

Written for an introductory course in data structures, typically known as CS-2, this book was designed and built from the ground up with Java and objects in mind. Frank Carrano and Walter Savitch provide instructors and students with a carefully crafted and class-tested approach for teaching ADTs and objects with Java. The book's unique design organizes material in short segments and relatively small chapters. This approach makes learning easier and allows for teaching flexibility. The book shows students how to organize their data by using a list, a dictionary, a stack, a queue, and so on. Using these data organizations, students will learn about related techniques for algorithm development.
Frank M. Carrano is a professor emeritus of computer science at the University of Rhode Island. He received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from Syracuse University in 1969. His interests include data structures, computer science education, social issues in computing, and numerical computation. Professor Carrano is particularly interested in the design and delivery of undergraduate courses in computer science. He has authored several well-known computer science textbooks for undergraduates.
Walter Savitchreceived the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1969. Since that time he has been on the faculty at the University of California at San Diego and is currently a Professor of Computer Science and director of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Cognitive Science. Professor Savitch’s research areas include complexity theory, formal language theory, computational linguistics, and the development of computer science education materials. In addition to writing numerous research articles and involvement in other editorial projects, he has written a number of well-known computer science textbooks, including Pascal, Ada, and C++ CS1 and CS2 textbooks.
