Explore Python data structures and delve into the details of some of the basic structures, such as linked lists, stacks, and queues. Key concepts covered in this 12-video course include the metrics on which algorithms and operations on data are evaluated; learning how the performance of operations and algorithms is expressed in terms of size of input; and learning about linked lists and their contents and structure. Next, study different ways in which nodes can be added to a linked list and how search operations work on this data structure; learn methods to remove nodes from a linked list and the process of reversing the order of nodes in this data structure; and learn techniques used to keep track of numbers of elements in linked lists. You will examine workings of a stack data structure, including the addition and removal of elements; learn some of the operations on stacks, such as ISEMPTY and ISFULL, and the complexities of different stack operations; and learn the queue data structure and how to compare it to stacks.
