Data Structures and Algorithms in C++: Pocket Primer (Mercury)
Data Structures and Algorithms in C++: Pocket Primer (Mercury)
Wednesday, 26 July 2017

This book takes a minimalist approach to the traditional data structures course. It covers only those topics that are absolutely essential; the more esoteric structures and algorithms are left for later study. Author Lee Wittenberg has written the book from the ground up in C++, and uses features of the C++ Standard Template Library to illustrate important concepts.

<ASIN:1683920848>

A unique feature of the text is its use of literate programming techniques (originally developed by Donald Knuth) to present the sample code in a way that keeps the code from overwhelming the accompanying explanations. This book is suitable for an undergraduate data structures course using C++ or for developers needing review.

  • Takes a "minimalist" approach to the material that presents only essential concepts.  This enables readers to focus on (and remember) just what they'll need.
  • Uses select features of the C++11 standard to simplify the sample code and make it easier to understand.
  • Connects the concepts directly to the classes provided the Standard Template Library (STL), and shows how these classes can be implemented in C++.
  • Uses "literate programming" techniques that allow the presentation of the sample code to more clearly show the details of the code as well as how the pieces fit together.
