Basic Terminology of Data Structure

Hey guys in this session,I am going to tell all of you about the basic terminology of Data Structure.

WHAT IS DATA STRUCTURE —:

Data structure is a very important part of Data management .

“A data structure is basically a group of data elements that are put togather under one name ,and which defines a particular way of storing and organising data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.”

Data structures are almost used in every program or software system.some common example of data structures are ARRAY,LINKED LIST,STACK,QUEUE,TREE,GRAPHS etc.

Data Structures are videly used in given bellow areas.

  • COMPILER DESIGN
  • OPERATING SYSTEM
  • DBMS
  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
  • GRAPHICS
  • SIMULATION
  • NUMERICAL ANALYSIS etc.

CLASSIFICATION OF DATA STRUCTURES —:

Classification of Data Structures in C
Classification of Data Structures

PRIMITIVE DATA TYPE –:

Primitive data structures are the fundamental data types which are supported by a programming language. some basic data types are integer , character , Boolean pointer , float , double , real.

NON PRIMITIVE DATA STRUCTURES —:

Non primitive data structures are that data structures which are created using primitive data structures as—: array , linked list , tree etc

LINEAR DATA STRUCTURES —-:

If the element of data structures are stored in linear or sequential order then it is called linear data structures as—-:array , stack , queue , linked list.

Linear data structures stored in memory with linear relationship between elements by mean of sequential memory location.

NON LINEAR DATA STRUCTURES —–:

If the element of data structures are not stored in sequential order then it is called non linear data structures. As —: tree and graph.

Non linear data structures stored in memory with random orders location.

CONCLUSION —:

Hey guys I hope this post definetely be a important and knowledge inhancer for all of you.i will try my best to cover whole data structures in this blog thank you.
