Summary

This classic book has been revised to enhance its focus on data abstraction and data structures using C++. It provides a firm foundation in data abstraction, emphasizing the distinction between specification and implementation as the foundation for an object-oriented approach. Author Frank Carrano covers key object-oriented concepts, including encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism. However, the focus remains on data abstraction instead of simply C++ syntax. He illustrates the role of classes and ADTs in the problem-solving process, and includes major applications of ADTs, such as searching a flight map and event-driven simulation. The book offers early, extensive coverage of recursion and uses this technique in many examples and exercises. It also introduces analysis Of algorithms and the Big "O" notation. In addition, an appendix reviews basic C++ syntax for those who either have studied the language previously or are making the transition from another language to C++.
