Data Structures and Problem Solving Using Java, Second Edition, provides a practical introduction to data structures and algorithms from the perspective of abstract thinking and problem solving, as well as the use of Java. Experienced author and educator Mark Allen Weiss takes a unique approach by clearly separating the specification and implementation of data structures. He presents the interface and running time of data structures in Part II of the book. Then, he provides the opportunity for readers to use the data structures in a variety of practical examples before introducing the implementations in Part IV. By first gaining a familiarity with the interfaces and uses of data structures, readers will be able to think more abstractly about the subject matter. New utilization of the Java 1.2 Collections API frees the second edition from relying upon a non-standard, book-dependent data structures package. The new edition also features new coverage of Design Patterns and significantly revised material of inheritance.
