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.

TreeSets

TreeSets are used in marketing and customer relationship management applications. TreeSet is a set that has a binary tree with unique elements. The elements are sorted in a natural order. In the following code snippet, TreeSet creation, insertion, search, and stringify operations are presented. TreeSet allows only one null value if the set is empty. The elements are sorted and stored as elements. The add, remove, and contains functions cost log(n) on TreeSets:

///main package has examples shown
// in Go Data Structures and algorithms book
package main

// TreeSet class
type TreeSet struct {
bst *BinarySearchTree
}

We will discuss the different TreeSet methods in the following sections.
