Typically. and objects. the introductory courses are presented as a two. This package forms a coherent library of data structures and algorithms in Java specifically designed for educational purposes in a way that is complementary with the Java Collections Framework. Elementary data structures are often briefly introduced in the first programming or introduction to computer science course and this is followed by a more in-depth introduction to data structures in the following course(s). databases. we think of data as instances of an abstract data type (ADT) that includes a repertory of methods for performing operations on the data. for the study of data structures is part of the core of every collegiate computer science and computer engineering major program we are familiar with. we provide an associated Java interface. including the Web. object-oriented solutions are often organized utilizing common design patterns.datastructures. rather than simply viewing data as a collection of bytes and addresses. Thus. The Java code in this the book implementing fundamental data structures is organized in a single Java package. We also give Java implementations of fundamental algorithms (such as sorting and graph traversals) and of sample applications of data structures (such as HTML tag matching and a photo album). this course sequence is typically followed at a later point in the curriculum by a more in-depth study of data structures and algorithms. we sometimes show only code fragments in the book and make the full source code available on the companion Web site http://java. and scientific simulation systems. which facilitate software reuse and robustness. we have tried to take a consistent objectoriented viewpoint throughout this text.viii Preface Use as a Textbook The design and analysis of efficient data structures has long been recognized as a vital subject in computing.datastructures. concrete data structures realizing the ADTs are provided as Java classes implementing the above interfaces.

One of the main ideas of the objectoriented approach is that data should be presented as being encapsulated with the methods that access and modify them. operating systems. net. With the emergence of the object-oriented paradigm as the framework of choice for building robust and reusable software. we present each data structure using ADTs and their respective implementations and we introduce important design patterns as means to organize those implementations into classes. given the importance of efficient data structures in most software systems.

He is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Brown University. . and geometric computing. For example. They have served as principal investigators in several joint projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation. He is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of California. His teaching style is to involve the students in lively interactive classroom sessions that bring out the intuition and insights behind data structuring and algorithmic techniques. We give a summary of other useful mathematical facts.D. in Chapter 3. The instructional Web sites. He is editorin-chief for the Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications and an editor for Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications. He is an editor for the International Journal of Computational Geometry & Applications and Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications. Tamassia has taught Data Structures and Algorithms as an introductory freshman-level course since 1988. sections that use something other than one of these seven functions are considered optional. Previously. About the Authors Professors Goodrich and Tamassia are well-recognized researchers in algorithms and data structures. Irvine.D. including Data Structures as a freshman-sophomore level course and Introduction to Algorithms as an upper level course. computer security. and professionals worldwide.
