C++ Data Structures and Algorithms

More Information
  • Build applications using hash tables, dictionaries, and sets.
  • Implement a URL shortening service using a bloom filter.
  • Apply common algorithms such as heapsort and merge sort for string data types.
  • Use C++ template metaprogramming to write code libraries
  • Explore how modern hardware affects the actual run-time performance of programs.
  • Use appropriate modern C++ idioms like std:: array instead of C-style arrays.

C++ is a mature multi-paradigm programming language that enables you to write high-level code with great control over the hardware. Today, significant parts of software infrastructure (including databases, browsers, frameworks, and GUI toolkits) are written in C++.

This book starts by introducing C++ data structures and how to store data using linked lists, arrays, stacks, and queues. In later chapters, the book explains the basic algorithm design techniques such as greedy algorithms and divide and conquer algorithms as well as how they facilitate faster computations in your programs. Finally, you will learn advanced techniques such as graph algorithms and dynamic programming to develop applications that can perform high calculations.

By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to implement standard data structures and algorithms in idiomatic C++ 14 or C++ 17 code that proves to be efficient and scales well.

  • Explore data structures such as arrays, stacks, and graphs with real-world examples. Study the trade-offs between algorithms and data structures and discover what works and what doesn't. Discover how techniques such as bloom filters and multi-way heaps boost real-world applications.
