Data Structures, Algorithms, and Applications in Java (2/E) is the new version of the very popular first edition. It provides a comprehensive coverage of fundamental data structures, making it ideal for use in a CS2 course. The author, Professor Sartaj Sahni has made the book very user friendly by starting with a gentle introduction, providing intuitive discussions, and including real-world applications.

Real-world applications are a unique feature of this text. Dr. Sahni provides several applications for each data structure and algorithm design method discussed, taking examples from topics such as sorting, compression and coding, and image processing. These applications motivate and interest students by connecting concepts with their use. Dr. Sahni does an excellent job of balancing theoretical and practical information, resulting in learned concepts and interested students.

The market-developed pedagogy in this book reinforces concepts and gives students plenty of practice. There are almost 1,000 exercises, including comprehension and simple programming problems, and projects. Additionally, the book has an associated Web site that contains all the programs in the book, animations, sample data, generated output, solutions to selected exercises, and sample tests with answers.
