Gain a deep understanding of the complexity of data structures and algorithms and discover the right way to write more efficient code
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
This book is for Java developers who want to learn about data structures and algorithms. Basic knowledge of Java is assumed.
What You Will Learn
Java 9 Data Structures and Algorithms covers classical, functional, and reactive data structures, giving you the ability to understand computational complexity, solve problems, and write efficient code. This book is based on the Zero Bug Bounce milestone of Java 9.
We start off with the basics of algorithms and data structures, helping you understand the fundamentals and measure complexity. From here, we introduce you to concepts such as arrays, linked lists, as well as abstract data types such as stacks and queues. Next, we’ll take you through the basics of functional programming while making sure you get used to thinking recursively.
We provide plenty of examples along the way to help you understand each concept. You will get the also get a clear picture of reactive programming, binary searches, sorting, search trees, undirected graphs, and a whole lot more!
Style and approach
This book will teach you about all the major algorithms in a step-by-step manner. Special notes on the Big-O Notation and its impact on algorithms will give you fresh insights.
