Using Java 1.1, this book teaches the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms. With this exciting new language, Tim 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.
