Data Structures and Other Objects Using C++ takes a gentle approach to the data structures course in C++. Providing an early, self-contained review of object-oriented programming and C++, this text gives students a firm grasp of key concepts and allows those experienced in another language to adjust easily. Flexible by design, professors have the option of emphasizing object-oriented programming, covering recursion and sorting early, or accelerating the pace of the course. Finally, a solid foundation in building and using abstract data types is also provided, along with an assortment of advanced topics such as B-trees for project building and graphs.
The C++ Standard Template Library (STL) plays a larger role in the curriculum than past editions, and the authors have added selected new material to support this. It’s important that students understand both how to use the STL classes in an application program and the possible approaches to implementing these (or similar) classes. With this in mind, the primary changes that you’ll find for this edition are:
Most chapters also include new programming projects, and you may also keep an eye on the project web site, www.cs.colorado.edu/~main/dsoc.html, for new projects as the authors develop them.
