Hands-On Data Structures and Algorithms with Kotlin

By: Chandra Sekhar Nayak, Rivu Chakraborty

Overview of this book

Data structures and algorithms are more than just theoretical concepts. They help you become familiar with computational methods for solving problems and writing logical code. Equipped with this knowledge, you can write efficient programs that run faster and use less memory. Hands-On Data Structures and Algorithms with Kotlin book starts with the basics of algorithms and data structures, helping you get to grips with the fundamentals and measure complexity. You'll then move on to exploring the basics of functional programming while getting used to thinking recursively. Packed with plenty of examples along the way, this book will help you grasp each concept easily. In addition to this, you'll get a clear understanding of how the data structures in Kotlin's collection framework work internally. By the end of this book, you will be able to apply the theory of data structures and algorithms to work out real-world problems.

Summary

So far, we've understood what an algorithm is and how it can be used with any data structures to solve problems easily. We also understood how to analyze the complexity of an algorithm. But this is just the beginning. As the chapters go on, all of the examples we discuss will relate to complexity analysis and similar information.

We will discuss about many commonly used data structures in further chapters and will try to do the complexity analysis for all those data structures and algorithms.
