Data Structures

Why data structures are important?

The most important question that computer scientists think of is how their data is stored in memory (RAM)? Depending upon the design of the data structures searching time, retrieval time, deletion time and also updation time may vary.

We want our data to be accessible fast. That's why we designed various data structures. The most important ones are the following

  1. Linked lists

  2. Stacks and queues

  3. Dictionary [HashMaps / Hash Tables]

  4. Tree

  5. Graphs

  6. Disjoint Sets
