Offered as an introduction to the field of data structures and
algorithms, Open Data Structures covers the implementation and
analysis of data structures for sequences (lists), queues, priority
queues, unordered dictionaries, ordered dictionaries, and graphs.
Focusing on a mathematically rigorous approach that is fast, practical,
and efficient, Morin clearly and briskly presents instruction along
with source code.
Analyzed and implemented in Java, the data structures presented in
the book include stacks, queues, deques, and lists implemented as
arrays and linked-lists; space-efficient implementations of lists; skip
lists; hash tables and hash codes; binary search trees including
treaps, scapegoat trees, and red-black trees; integer searching
structures including binary tries, x-fast tries, and y-fast tries;
heaps, including implicit binary heaps and randomized meldable heaps;
and graphs, including adjacency matrix and adjacency list
representations; and B-trees.
A modern treatment of an essential computer science topic, Open
Data Structures is a measured balance between classical topics and
state-of-the art structures that will serve the needs of all
undergraduate students or self-directed learners.Pat Morin is an associate professor in the School of
Computer Science at Carleton University as well as founder and managing
editor of the open access Journal of Computational Geometry.
He is the author of numerous conference papers and journal publications
on the topics of computational geometry, algorithms, and data
