This book is an update of the classic "Walls and Mirrors" approach to programming, which instills the use of both abstraction (the walls) and recursion (the mirrors) to design solutions to problems. Data Abstraction and Problem Solving with Java: Walls and Mirrors provides a focus on the important concepts of data abstraction and data structures in a manner accessible to students at the introductory level. The book carefully accounts for the strengths and weaknesses of the Java language and is committed to a pedagogical approach that makes the material student friendly. The focus of this book is data abstraction, as well as key object-oriented concepts, including encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism.

Data Abstraction and Problem Solving in C++, and is now updated to the Java programming language. It uses the running theme of "Walls and Mirrors" to help make clear the challenging concepts of recursion (the mirrors) and data abstraction (the walls). Authors Carrano and Prichard cover key object-oriented concepts, including encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. However, the focus of the book remains on data abstraction instead of simply Java syntax.
Dr. Janet Prichard is an assistant professor at Bryant College where she teaches web design and development, object-oriented computing, operating systems, and data structures courses. She has a B.A. in mathematics from Providence College, and earned her M.S. and Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Rhode Island. Her academic interests include real-time databases, database query languages, object-oriented analysis and design methodologies, database standards, client-server models, and Internet security. Dr. Prichard is the lead author of the Third Edition of Data Abstraction and Problem Solving with Java.
Frank M. Carrano is Professor Emeritus of Computer Science at the University of Rhode Island. He received his 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.
