The biggest advantage of linked lists is that they can be expanded in constant time without memory overhead.
For example when you make an array you must allocate memory for a certain number of elements. If you want to add more elements to the array than you allocated for you must create a new array and copy the old array into the new array. This can take lots of time. You can prevent this by allocating lots of space initially but then you might allocate more than you need wasting memory.
With a linked list you can start with space for just one element allocated. And add on new elements easily without the need to do any copying and reallocating.
All lists are linked lists; there is no such thing as a separate "sorted list". There are algorithms that can sort a list, of course, but they all work on linked lists.
*Linked lists can grow or shrink in size during execution of a program. *Linked list does not waste memory space.it uses the memory that is just needed for the list at any point of time. *The linked lists provide flexibility is allowing the items to be rearranged efficiently. *It is easier to insert or delete items by rearranging the links.
Linked-lists and stacks/queues are not really analogous data structures; often if you looks at the source code queues and stacks are simply special types of linked-lists. This is mainly because adding and removing items from a linked-list is generally much faster than using an array.
Both arrays and linked lists have their advantages in different situations. These advantages can vary by language. For example, Java & C# technically don't have pointers, but references to objects. Array advantages (over linked lists): * Can be allocated in a single block. * Uses less memory (linked lists need one or two extra pointers per element). * Allows for fast random access (e.g., computed access, X) Array Disadvantages (over linked lists): * Harder to dynamically grow/shrink (usually allocated larger/smaller array and copy current contents into it). * Harder to insert/delete/move chunks of data around (involves block copy statements to slide the rest of the array left or right) In general: * An array is more appropriate for collections of a known size, needing fast/random access. * Linked lists are more flexible (faster growth/shrink, insert/delete/move), but have slower access time and use more memory for storage.
There is no such thing. There are binary trees and linked lists.

write a program for multiplication of two polynomials. use doubly linked lists
please shoe these advantages
Linked lists take extra memory for storing the addresses. Linked lists have an access time of O(n), arrays have an access time of O(1).
In linked list if there is no any element inside it than we can say linked list is underflow.
High access time
data processing frequently involves storing and processing data organised in to lists and link them with pointers hece termed as linked lists
Create two different singly linked lists. make the head ( or starting pointer) of the 2nd singly linked list, the link of the last (or end) node of the 1st linked list. e.g. last->link=first;
some disadvantages created in stack using array then that problem solve to linked list use in stack.First advantage for size of stack not limited in linked list using.second essay to stack programme implement using only one pointer.
Linked list is a dynamic data structure that contains a "link" to the structure containing the next item. It is a collection of structures ordered not by their physical placement in memory (like array) but by logical links that are stored as part of the data in the structure itself.Advantages of Linked Lists- Dynamic structure (Mem. Allocated at run-time).- We can have more than one datatype.- Re-arrange of linked list is easy (Insertion-Deletion).- It doesn't waste memory.Disadvantages of Linked Lists- In linked list, if we want to access any node it is difficult.- It is occupying more memory.
advantages of linked lists are: 1.Memory utilization is very high in linked list.That is when user want another node then he will create.And the nodes in the list are not contigous.So the memory is greatly utilized. 2.Inserting or deleting nodes from a linked list is very easy at any place of the linked list. 3.And data can be dis-similar types.All the nodes need not have the same type of data. ravi.....
Singly linked lists contain nodes which have a data field as well as a next field, which points to the next node in the linked list.
Advantages of single linked list: # Decrease in storage space per linked list node # Simpler implementation Advantages of double linked list # Decrease in work when accessing a random node # Decrease in work when inserting or deleting a node

A linked list is used in computer science to store data as a series of related nodes. Linked lists are used as the basis for abstract data types when programming. The chief advantage of a linked list is that data can be added or removed from the list without having to reorganize the whole list. A drawback to linked lists can be that it is difficult to sort, organize, or recall specific information from the list.
Linked lists use dynamic memory allocation (also called "heap memory allocation", as the linked list is stored in heap memory).
Typically when one refers to a "linked list" they are actually referring to a "singly linked list." Technically, however, "linked list" refers to the collection of all different implementations of linked lists: singly linked list, doubly linked list, circular linked list, circular double linked list, etc.
in doubly linked list we can move forword or backword by using pointer , but this not in case of singly linked list ... :-)
