Review of C programming language. Introduction to Data Structure: Concepts of Data and Information, Classification of Data structures, Abstract Data Types,
Implementation aspects: Memory representation. Data structures operations and
its cost estimation. Introduction to linear data structures- Arrays, Linked List:
Representation of linked list in memory, different implementation of linked list.
Circular linked list, doubly linked list, etc. Application of linked list: polynomial
manipulation using linked list, etc.


Stacks: Stacks as ADT, Different implementation of stack, multiple stacks. Application of Stack: Conversion of infix to postfix notation using stack, evaluation of postfix expression, Recursion. Queues: Queues as ADT, Different implementation of queue, Circular queue, Concept of Dqueue and Priority Queue, Queue simulation, Application of queues.
