Abstract Data Types and Subprograms
Chapter 8 Abstract Data Types and Subprograms

What is Computer Science?
One More Definition of Computer Science: “Computer Science is the Automation of Abstractions” – anonymous

Data Instructions More Simply Stated…
Data organization and Algorithm affect each other

Chapter Goals array-based implementation linked implementation
What is an Abstract Data Type? Concept of “The Separation of Interface from Implementation” array-based implementation linked implementation

More Chapter Goals Some Specific Common Abstract Data Types
arrays and lists stacks and queues binary trees and binary search trees Graphs Common Algorithms that Operate on these ADT’s Tree Searches Traveling Salesman Problem, etc

Abstract Data Types Abstract data type
A composite data type containing: Data in a particular organization Operations (algorithms) to operate on that data Remember the most powerful tool for managing complexity?

Abstract Data Types Abstract data type The goals are to:
Reduce complexity thru abstraction Organize our data into various kinds of containers Think about our problem in terms of data and the operations (algorithms) that are done to them

Why do We Need ADT’s? Very DIFFICULT to write this without ADT’s

Why do We Need ADT’s? Almost IMPOSSIBLE to write this without ADT’s

All operations occur at the top
Stacks All operations occur at the top

structures that are stacks
An abstract data type in which accesses are made at only one end LIFO, which stands for Last In First Out The insert is called Push and the delete is called Pop Name some everyday structures that are stacks

Hand simulate this algorithm
Stacks WHILE (more data) Read value Push(myStack, value) WHILE (NOT IsEmpty(myStack)) Pop(myStack, value) Write value Hand simulate this algorithm 12 12

All operations occur at the front and back
Queues All operations occur at the front and back

Queues Queue An abstract data type in which items are entered at one end and removed from the other end FIFO, for “First In First Out” EnQue: Get in line at rear Deque: Get served at front

Hand simulate this algorithm
Queues WHILE (more data) Read value Enque(myQueue, value) WHILE (NOT IsEmpty(myQueue)) Deque(myQueue, value) Write value Hand simulate this algorithm 15

Stacks and Queues (using a Linked Implementation)
Stack and queue visualized as linked structures

Implementation: What’s Inside?
There are several ways to implement any ADT 2 Common implementations use: An Array Linked Nodes Here, we are concerned with the details inside the ADT (Building the car instead of Driving the car)

ADT Implementations Array-based implementation Items are in an array, physically next to each other in memory Linked-based implementation Items are not next to each other in memory, instead each item points to the next item Did you ever play treasure hunt, a game in which each clue told you where to go to get the next clue?

Array-Based Implementations

Algorithm for Playing Solitaire
WHILE (deck not empty) Pop the deckStack Check for Aces While (There are playStacks to check) If(can place card) Push card onto playStack Else push card onto usedStack Does implementation matter at this point?

“Logical Level” The algorithm that uses the list does not need to know how it is implemented We have written algorithms using a stack, a queue, and a list without ever knowing the internal workings of the operations on these containers 22 22

Can represent more complex relationships between data
Trees Can represent more complex relationships between data

Trees What is the unique path to the node containing 5? 9? 7? …
Root node Node with two children Node with right child Leaf node What is the unique path to the node containing 5? 9? 7? … Node with left child

Why Trees? Some real-world data is tree-like
Geneology Family trees Management Hierarchies File Systems (Folders etc) Treeses are easy to search

Binary Search Trees Binary search tree
Each “sub-tree” has the following property(s): All sub-trees on one side are greater All sub-tress on the other side are smaller

Binary Search Tree Each node is the root of a subtree made up of
its left and right children Prove that this tree is a BST Figure 8.7 A binary search tree

Binary Search Tree (A Look at Implementation Details)

Like Mona Lisa, Trees have repeating patterns at smaller levels
Trees and Recursion Like Mona Lisa, Trees have repeating patterns at smaller levels

Recursive Binary Search Algorithm
Boolean BinSearch(node, item) If (node is null) item does not exist Else If (item < node) BinSearch(node.leftchild, item) BinSearch(node.rightchild, item)

Binary Search Tree

Building Binary Search Tree
Insert(tree, item) IF (tree is null) Put item in tree ELSE IF (item < info(tree)) Insert (left(tree), item) Insert (right(tree), item) 33 33

Can represent more complex relationships between data
Graphs Can represent more complex relationships between data

Graphs Graph A set of nodes and a set of edges that relate the nodes to each other Undirected graph Edges have no direction Directed graph (Digraph) Each edge has a direction (arrowhead) Weighted Graph Edges have values

Graphs Figure 8.10 Examples of graphs

Graphs Figure Examples of graphs

Graphs Figure 8.10 Examples of graphs

Common Graph Algorithms
Traveling salesman problem Finding the cheapest or shortest path through several cities Internet data routing algorithms Family tree software Neural Nets (An Artificial Intelligence technique)

Graph Algorithms A Depth-First Searching Algorithm--Given a starting vertex and an ending vertex, we can develop an algorithm that finds a path from startVertex to endVertex This is called a depth-first search because we start at a given vertex and go to the deepest branch and exploring as far down one path before taking alternative choices at earlier branches

Depth First Search(startVertex, endVertex) Set found to FALSE Push(myStack, startVertex) WHILE (NOT IsEmpty(myStack) AND NOT found) Pop(myStack, tempVertex) IF (tempVertex equals endVertex) Write endVertex Set found to TRUE ELSE IF (tempVertex not visited) Write tempVertex Push all unvisited vertexes adjacent with tempVertex Mark tempVertex as visited IF (found) Write "Path has been printed" ELSE Write "Path does not exist")

Breadth-First Search What if we want to answer the question of how to get from City X to City Y with the fewest number of airline stops? A Breadth-First Search answers this question A Breadth-First Search examines all of the vertices adjacent with startVertex before looking at those adjacent with those adjacent to these vertices A Breadth-First Search uses a queue, not a stack, to answer this above question Why??

Set found to FALSE Enque(myQueue, startVertex) WHILE (NOT IsEmpty(myQueue) AND NOT found) Deque(myQueue, tempVertex) IF (tempVertex equals endVertex) Write endVertex Set found to TRUE ELSE IF (tempVertex not visited) Write tempVertex Enque all unvisited vertexes adjacent with tempVertex Mark tempVertex as visited IF (found) Write "Path has been printed" ELSE Write "Path does not exist"
