The data structures are user defined data types specifically created for the manipulation of data in a predefined manner. Examples of data structures would be stacks,queues,trees,graphs and even arrays(also reffered as data structure)

1) Logical data structures are structures that emphasize on data relationships and how data is related from the view of the user. 2) Physical data structures are data models that emphasize on the use of efficiently and effectively storing data in memory.

trees and graphs are very important data structures. they are used in compilers and in data base. compiler uses tree structures do convert data types and do calculations on booleans and variables. even the modem on your computer uses a binary tree structure called huffman encoding for data compression.

User Avatar

Data types are forms of data itself, Integer, Boolean, String, etc. This is related to how the 1's and 0's are interpreted for that piece of data. Data structures are arrangements such as linked lists, stacks, queues for arranging the data (usually) for accessibility.

User Avatar

Data structures could be used to implement an efficient database. Linked lists for example will optimize insertion and deletion for ordered lists.

User Avatar

Without data-structures you cannot even store expressions, let alone convert or evaluate them.

User Avatar

Structures encapsulate only data whereas objects capture both data and behavior in the form of methods.

There is no name which is specific to the Data Structures only. Data structures is the part of your project work, as an example , there is a product name "Router". When the functioning of router will be designed there will be a lot of use of Data structures as well, which will used to store various routing IP address and there will be a lot of functioning which is supposed to play with these IP Address. so there will be a lot of insertion/deletion/reading of IP address, when router will take decision of some path, so the designing of its data structures must be so optimal so It can work effectively in normal/hard/poor conditions. ORACLE/SQL Server they provides the user interface to design the database, which internally is a data structures which is use extensively primitive data types and in the top of that a lot or non-primitive data types , e.g; linear/non-linear data structures for effective functioning. A lot of searching/sorting/insertion/deletion algorithms are part of the data structures. So Data structures is part of your project, every project play with data, and you design the data , which call as Data structure and on the top of you use a lot of functions, Regarding the design and functioning on this data, totally depends on the project specific.
