This book is a fast-paced introduction to using data structures with Java. Numerous code samples and listings are included to support myriad topics. The first chapter contains a quick introduction to Java, along with Java code samples to check for leap years, find divisors of a number, and work with arrays of strings. The second chapter introduces recursion and usescode samples to check if a positive number is prime, to find the prime divisors of a positive integer, to calculate the GCD (greatest common divisor) and LCM (lowest common multiple) of a pair of positive integers. The third chapter contains Java code samples involving strings and arrays, such as finding binary substrings of a number, checking if strings contain unique characters, counting bits in a range of numbers, and how to compute XOR without using the XOR function. Chapters 4 through 6 include Java code samples involving search algorithms, concepts in linked lists, and tasks involving linked lists. Finally, Chapter 7 discusses data structures called queues and stacks, along with additional Java code samples.
