OBJECTIVES:
• To understand the concepts of ADTs
• To Learn linear data structures – lists, stacks, and queues
• To understand sorting, searching and hashing algorithms
• To apply Tree and Graph structures

UNIT I

LINEAR DATA STRUCTURES – LIST

9

Abstract Data Types (ADTs) – List ADT – array-based implementation – linked list implementation –– singly linked lists- circularly linked lists- doubly-linked lists – applications of lists –Polynomial Manipulation – All operations (Insertion, Deletion, Merge, Traversal).

UNIT II

LINEAR DATA STRUCTURES – STACKS, QUEUES

9

Stack ADT – Operations - Applications - Evaluating arithmetic expressions- Conversion of Infix to postfix expression - Queue ADT – Operations - Circular Queue – Priority Queue - deQueue – applications of queues.

UNIT III

NON LINEAR DATA STRUCTURES – TREES

9

Tree ADT – tree traversals - Binary Tree ADT – expression trees – applications of trees – binary search tree ADT –Threaded Binary Trees- AVL Trees – B-Tree - B+ Tree - Heap – Applications of heap.

UNIT IV

NON LINEAR DATA STRUCTURES - GRAPHS

9

Definition – Representation of Graph – Types of graph - Breadth-first traversal - Depth-first traversal – Topological Sort – Bi-connectivity – Cut vertex – Euler circuits – Applications of graphs.

UNIT V

SEARCHING, SORTING AND HASHING TECHNIQUES

9

Searching- Linear Search - Binary Search. Sorting - Bubble sort - Selection sort - Insertion sort - Shell sort – Radix sort. Hashing- Hash Functions – Separate Chaining – Open Addressing – Rehashing – Extendible Hashing.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
• Implement abstract data types for linear data structures.
• Apply the different linear and non-linear data structures to problem solutions.
• Critically analyze the various sorting algorithms.
