Book description
Understand and implement classic data structures and algorithms using JavaScript
In Detail
A data structure is a particular way of organizing data in a computer to utilize resources efficiently. Data structures and algorithms are the base of every solution to any programming problem.
This book begins by covering the basics of the JavaScript language and then moves on to discuss the most important data structures such as array, queue, stack, and linked list. You will also gain an indepth knowledge of how hash tables and set data structure function. After this, you will be taught what trees are, and how to use the binary tree and the binary search tree.
In subsequent chapters, you will learn about graphs, DFS, and BFS. Finally, we will round off by learning how to differentiate between various searching and sorting algorithms such as sequential search, binary search, quick sort, bubble sort, and so on, and how to implement them. Towards the end of the book, you will also be introduced to dynamic programming.
What You Will Learn
 Declare, initialize, add, and remove items from arrays, stacks, and queues
 Create and use the most complex data structure, graphs, along with DFS and BFS algorithms
 Grasp the power of linked lists, doubly linked lists, and circular linked lists
 Store unique elements with hash tables, dictionaries, and sets
 Explore the applications of binary trees and binary search trees
 Sort data structures using bubble sort, selection sort, insertion sort, merge sort, and quick sort
 Search elements in data structures using sequential sort and binary search
 Understand the importance of big O notation, dynamic programming, and greedy algorithms
