7 CLASS queue Constructor queue(); Create an empty queue. CLASS queue Operations bool empty() const; Check whether the queue is empty. Return true if it is empty and false otherwise. T& front(); Return a reference to the value of the item at the font of the queue. Precondition: The queue is not empty.

Queues 8 CLASS queue Operations const T& front() const; Constant version of front(). void pop(); Remove the item from the front of the queue. Precondition:The queue is not empty. Postcondition:The element at the front of the queue is the element that was added immediately after the element just popped or the queue is empty.

Queues 9 CLASS queue Operations void push(const T& item); Insert the argument item at the back of the queue. Postcondition:The queue has a new item at the back int size() const; Return the number of elements in the queue.

Queues 15 Implementing Queue: adapter of std::list This is a simple adapter class, with following mappings:  Queue push maps to push_back  Queue front maps front  Queue pop maps to pop_front ... This is the approach taken by the C++ standard library. Any sequential container that supports push_back, front, and pop_front can be used. The list The deque

Queues 21

Queues 22 The Radix Sort Order ten 2 digit numbers in 10 bins from smallest number to largest number. Requires 2 calls to the sort Algorithm. Initial Sequence:91 6 85 15 92 35 30 22 39 Pass 0: Distribute the cards into bins according to the 1's digit (10 0 ).

Queues 23 The Radix Sort After Collection:30 91 92 22 85 15 35 6 39 Pass 1: Take the new sequence and distribute the cards into bins determined by the 10's digit (10 1 ). Final Sequence:6 15 22 30 35 39 85 91 92

Queues 24 Radix Sort Use an array of queues (or vector of queues) as the “buckets” void radixSort (vector & v, int d) { int i; int power = 1; queue digitQueue[10]; for (i=0;i < d;i++) { distribute(v, digitQueue, power); collect(digitQueue, v); power *= 10; }

Queues 25 // support function for radixSort() // distribute vector elements into one of 10 queues // using the digit corresponding to power // power = 1 ==> 1's digit // power = 10 ==> 10's digit // power = 100 ==> 100's digit //... void distribute(const vector & v, queue digitQueue[], int power) { int i; // loop through the vector, inserting each element into // the queue (v[i] / power) % 10 for (i = 0; i < v.size(); i++) digitQueue[(v[i] / power) % 10].push(v[i]); }

Queues 26 // support function for radixSort() // gather elements from the queues and copy back to the vector void collect(queue digitQueue[], vector & v) { int i = 0, digit; // scan the vector of queues using indices 0, 1, 2, etc. for (digit = 0; digit < 10; digit++) // collect items until queue empty and copy items back // to the vector while (!digitQueue[digit].empty()) { v[i] = digitQueue[digit].front(); digitQueue[digit].pop(); i++; }

Queues 35 Simulating Waiting Lines Using Queues Simulation is used to study the performance:  Of a physical (“real”) system  By using a physical, mathematical, or computer model of the system Simulation allows designers to estimate performance  Before building a system Simulation can lead to design improvements  Giving better expected performance of the system

Queues 36 Simulating Waiting Lines Using Queues Simulation is particular useful when:  Building/changing the system is expensive  Changing the system later may be dangerous Often use computer models to simulate “real” systems  Airline check-in counter, for example  Special branch of mathematics for these problems: Queuing Theory

Queues 37 Simulate Strategies for Airline Check-In

Queues 38 Simulate Airline Check-In We will maintain a simulated clock  Counts in integer “ticks”, from 0 At each tick, one or more events can happen: 1. Frequent flyer (FF) passenger arrives in line 2. Regular (R) passenger arrives in line 3. Agent finishes, then serves next FF passenger 4. Agent finishes, then serves next R passenger 5. Agent is idle (both lines empty)

Queues 39 Simulate Airline Check-In Simulation uses some parameters:  Max # FF served between regular passengers  Arrival rate of FF passengers  Arrival rate of R passengers  Service time Desired output:  Statistics on waiting times, agent idle time, etc.  Optionally, a detailed trace

Queues 40 Simulate Airline Check-In Design approach:  Agent data type models airline agent  Passenger data type models passengers  2 queue, 1 for FF, 1 for R  Overall Airline_Checkin_Sim class

Queues 51 Implementing a Queue Array based  Where is front? Where is top? Array suffers from “rightward” drift To solve, use circular array  How are elements added, removed? Using circular array, a new problem arises What does empty look like? What does single element look like? What does full look like?

Queues 52 Array-based Queue Use an array of size N in a circular fashion Two variables keep track of the front and rear f index of the front element r index immediately past the rear element Array location r is kept empty Q 012rf normal configuration Q 012fr wrapped-around configuration

Queues 53 Implementing queue With a Circular Array Basic idea: Maintain two integer indices into an array front: index of first element in the queue rear: index of the last element in the queue Elements thus fall at front through rear Key innovation: If you hit the end of the array wrap around to slot 0 This prevents our needing to shift elements around Still have to deal with overflow of space

Queues 57 The Bounded queue

Queues 58 Methods to Implement i = (( i + 1) == max) ? 0 : (i + 1); if (( i + 1) == max) i = 0; else i = i + 1; i = ( i + 1) % max;

Queues 59 Queue Operations We use the modulo operator (remainder of division) Algorithm size() return (N  f + r) mod N Algorithm isEmpty() return (f  r) Q 012rf Q 012fr

Queues 60 Queue Operations (cont.) Algorithm enqueue(o) if size() = N  1 then throw FullQueueException else Q[r]  o r  (r + 1) mod N Operation enqueue throws an exception if the array is full This exception is implementation-dependent Q 012rf Q 012fr

Queues 61 Queue Operations (cont.) Operation dequeue throws an exception if the queue is empty This exception is specified in the queue ADT Algorithm dequeue() if isEmpty() then throw EmptyQueueException else o  Q[f] f  (f + 1) mod N return o Q 012rf Q 012fr

Queues 62 Boundary Conditions

Queues 63 Implementation Considerations The physical model: a linear array with the front always in the first position and all entries moved up the array whenever the front is deleted. A linear array with two indices always increasing. A circular array with front and rear indices and one position left vacant. A circular array with front and rear indices and a Boolean flag to indicate fullness (or emptiness). A circular array with front and rear indices and an integer counter of entries. A circular array with front and rear indices taking special values to indicate emptiness.

Queues 64 Growable Array-based Queue In an enqueue operation, when the array is full, instead of throwing an exception, we can replace the array with a larger one Similar to what we did for an array-based stack The enqueue operation has amortized running time  O(n) with the incremental strategy  O(1) with the doubling strategy

Queues 65 Implementing a Queue Linked List based  Where is front? Where is back?  How are elements added, removed? Efficiency of operations

Queues 66 Queue with a Singly Linked List We can implement a queue with a singly linked list  The front element is stored at the first node  The rear element is stored at the last node The space used is O(n) and each operation of the Queue ADT takes O(1) time f r  nodes elements

Queues 67 Implementing Queue: Singly-Linked List This requires front and rear Node pointers: template class queue {... private: // Insert implementation-specific data fields // Insert definition of Node here #include "Node.h" // Data fields Node* front_of_queue; Node* back_of_queue; size_t num_items; };

Queues 68 Using a Single-Linked List to Implement a Queue (continued)

Queues 69 Implementing Queue: Singly-Linked List Insert at tail, using back_of_queue for speed Remove using front_of_queue Adjust size when adding/removing  No need to iterate through to determine size

Queues 70 Analysis of the Space/Time Issues Time efficiency of singly- or doubly-linked list good: O(1) for all Queue operations Space cost: ~3 extra words per item  vector uses 1 word per item when fully packed  2 words per item when just grown  On average ~1.5 words per item, for larger lists

Queues 71 Comparing the Three Implementations All three are comparable in time: O(1) operations Linked-lists require more storage  Singly-linked list: ~3 extra words / element  Doubly-linked list: ~4 extra words / element Circular array: 0-1 extra word / element  On average, ~0.5 extra word / element

Queues 72 Analysis of the Space/Time Issues vector Implementation  Insertion at end of vector is O(1), on average  Removal from the front is linear time: O(n)  Removal from rear of vector is O(1)  Insertion at the front is linear time: O(n)

Queues 76 The deque The deque is an abstract data type that combines the features of a stack and a queue. The name deque is an abbreviation for double-ended queue. The C++ standard defines the deque as a full-fledged sequential container that supports random access.

Queues 85 The Standard Library Implementation The standard library uses a randomly accessible circular array. Each item in the circular array points to a fixed size, dynamically allocated array that contains the data.  The advantage of this implementation is that when reallocation is required, only the pointers need to be copied into the new circular array.

Queues 99 Priority Queue A Special form of queue from which items are removed according to their designated priority and not the order in which they entered. Items entered the queue in sequential order but will be removed in the order #2, #1, #4, #3.

Queues 100 CLASS priority_queue Constructor priority_queue(); Create an empty priority queue. Type T must implement the operator <. CLASS priority_queue Operations bool empty() const; Check whether the priority queue is empty. Return true if it is empty, and false otherwise. Create void pop(); Remove the item of highest priority from the queue. Precondition:The priority queue is not empty. Postcondition:The priority queue has 1 less element

Queues 101 CLASS priority_queue Operations void push(const T& item); Insert the argument item into the priority queue. Postcondition: The priority queue contains a new element. int size() const; Return the number of items in the priority queue. T& top(); Return a reference to the item having the highest priority. Precondition: The priority queue is not empty. const T& top(); Constant version of top().

Queues 102 PQ Implementation How would you implement a priority queue?

Queues 103 103 Summary Slide 1 §- Queue -A first-come-first-served data structure. §- Insertion operations (push()) occur at the back of the sequence §- deletion operations (pop()) occur at the front of the sequence.

Queues 104 104 Summary Slide 2 §- The radix sort algorithm -Orders an integer vector by using queues (bins). -This sorting technique has running time O(n) but has only specialized applications. -The more general in-place O(n log2n) sorting algorithms are preferable in most cases.

Queues 105 105 Summary Slide 3 §- Implementing a queue with a fixed-size array -Indices qfront and qback move circularly around the array. -Gives O(1) time push() and pop() operations with no wasted space in the array.

Queues 106 106 Summary Slide 4 §- Priority queue -Pop() returns the highest priority item (largest or smallest). -Normally implemented by a heap, which is discussed later in the class. -The push() and pop() operations have running time O(log 2 n)
