Live Coding with Data Structures for campus/internship/jobs


  • C language


A data structure is a collection of data values, the relationships among them, and the functions or operations that can be applied to the data. Different types of data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific task. Data structures provide a means to manage large amounts of data efficiently. Efficient data structures are key to designing efficient algorithms.  Data structures can be used to organize the storage and retrieval of information stored in both main memory and secondary memory.

Data structures serve as the basis for ADT. The ADT  (Abstract Data Types) defines the logical form of the data type. Data structures are based on the ability of a computer to fetch and store data at any place in its memory, specified by a pointer.

The array and record data structures are based on computing the addresses of data items with arithmetic operations. The linked data structures are based on storing addresses of data items within the structure itself. The implementation of a data structure usually requires writing a set of procedures that create and manipulate instances of that structure.

A linked list is a linear collection of data elements whose order is not given by their physical placement in memory. Each element points to the next. It is a data structure consisting of a collection of nodes which together represent a sequence. Each node contains: data, and a  link to the next node in the sequence. This structure allows for efficient insertion or removal of elements from any position in the sequence during iteration.
