Learn Data Structures and Algorithms with Golang

By: Bhagvan Kommadi

Overview of this book

Golang is one of the fastest growing programming languages in the software industry. Its speed, simplicity, and reliability make it the perfect choice for building robust applications. This brings the need to have a solid foundation in data structures and algorithms with Go so as to build scalable applications. Complete with hands-on tutorials, this book will guide you in using the best data structures and algorithms for problem solving. The book begins with an introduction to Go data structures and algorithms. You'll learn how to store data using linked lists, arrays, stacks, and queues. Moving ahead, you'll discover how to implement sorting and searching algorithms, followed by binary search trees. This book will also help you improve the performance of your applications by stringing data types and implementing hash structures in algorithm design. Finally, you'll be able to apply traditional data structures to solve real-world problems. By the end of the book, you'll have become adept at implementing classic data structures and algorithms in Go, propelling you to become a confident Go programmer.

Non-Linear Data Structures

Non-linear data structures are used in cryptography and other areas. A non-linear data structure is an arrangement in which an element is connected to many elements. These structures use memory quickly and efficiently. Free contiguous memory is not required for adding new elements.

The length of the data structures is not important before adding new elements. A non-linear data structure has multiple levels and a linear one has a single level. The values of the elements are not organized in a non-linear data structure. The data elements in a non-linear data structure cannot be iterated in one step. The implementation of these data structures is complicated.

Tree types such as binary search trees, treaps, and symbol tables are explained in this chapter.

This chapter covers the following non-linear data structures:

  • Trees
  • Tables
  • Containers
  • Hash functions...
