Area of Study :

Define and use standard data structures classes. Design program with different data structures: array, linked list, stacks, queues, trees, graph and hash tables. Compare alternative implementations of data structures with respect to the performance. Compare and contrast the costs and benefits of dynamic and static data structure implementations. Choose the appropriate data structures for modeling a given problem.
