Hey guys, in this session,I will tell you about the basic terminology of Data Structure.
WHAT IS DATA STRUCTURE AND SOME BASIC TERMINOLOGY OF 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 together under one name, and which defines a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.”
Data structures are almost used in every program or software system. some typical examples of data structures are ARRAY, LINKED LIST, STACK, QUEUE, TREE, GRAPHS, etc.
Data Structures are widely used in the given below areas.
- COMPILER DESIGN
- OPERATING SYSTEM
- ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
- NUMERICAL ANALYSIS etc.
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, and real.
NON-PRIMITIVE DATA STRUCTURES —:
Non-primitive data structures are that data structures that are created using primitive data structures as—: 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 are stored in memory with a linear relationship between elements by means of a 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 are stored in memory with random orders location.
Hey guys I hope this post definitely be an important knowledge enhancer for all of you. I will try my best to cover whole data structures in this blog thank you.
