Data Structures, Algorithms, and Performance

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, Jan 1, 1993 - Computers - 594 pages
Consistently using a framework of abstract data types, this book describes all the important data structures and the algorithms that act upon them. The book has two underlying goals: to present the techniques necessary to analyze the performance of data structures and algorithms and to describe the methods used to determine the good and bad features of data structures.
