Introduction to Data Structures and Algorithms

Can you identify what the different structures above represent?
  • Numbers, names, packets, pictures, people, stations, locations and much more
  • Routes, friendships, connections, order and much more.
  • inputs — ingredients
  • process — recipe or method
  • output — what happens at the end? what do we produce?
Zodiacal light — which gets stored on computers as a collection of bits.
  • Manually search through the whole array (collection of values, starting at index 0, stored in indices)
  • Or you can use an algorithm like Kadane’s to identify the maximum subarray within the array to find the brightest area in the image.
Algorithm we used to speed up our chapter search in the example above.
