In this second edition of his best-selling book, Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C, Mark Allen Weiss, continues to refine and enhance his innovative approach to algorithms and data structures. Using a C implementation, he highlights conceptual topics, focusing on ADTs and the analysis of algorithms for efficiency as well as performance and running time. Dr. Weiss also distinguishes Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C with the extensive use of figures and examples showing the successive stages of an algorithm, his engaging writing style, and a logical organization of topics.
A textbook for an advanced undergraduate course in data structures, or a first-year graduate course in algorithm analysis. Assumes an intermediate knowledge of programming, and some background in discrete math. Extensive diagrams illustrate the development and relative efficiency of algorithms. Continues Weiss's coverage of the major computer languages. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
