# Array representation

## Array data structure

This formula requires only k multiplications and k additions, for any array that can fit in memory. They are known in this context as control tables and are used in conjunction with a purpose built interpreter whose control flow is altered according to values contained in the array. In C, the array element indices are inclusive in this case. For example, the expressions anArrayName[0] and anArrayName[9] are the first and last elements respectively. Element identifier and addressing formulas[ edit ] When data objects are stored in an array, individual objects are selected by an index that is usually a non-negative scalar integer. Indexes are also called subscripts. Arrays are used to implement other data structures, such as lists, heaps , hash tables , deques , queues , stacks , strings , and VLists. Many databases , small and large, consist of or include one-dimensional arrays whose elements are records. That much space of the array is wasted and can not be used in the future for this queue.

That much space of the array is wasted and can not be used in the future for this queue. History[ edit ] The first digital computers used machine-language programming to set up and access array structures for data tables, vector and matrix computations, and for many other purposes.

Memory wastage : The space of the array, which is used to store queue elements, can never be reused to store the elements of that queue because the elements can only be inserted at front end and the value of front might be so high so that, all the space before that, can never be filled.

Due to the fact that, the queue can be extended at runtime depending upon the problem, the extension in the array size is a time taking process and almost impossible to be performed at runtime since a lot of reallocations take place.

Taking advantage of this feature, some languages like FORTRAN 77 specify that array indices begin at 1, as in mathematical tradition while other languages like Fortran 90, Pascal and Algol let the user choose the minimum value for each index.

Arrays are used to implement other data structures, such as lists, heapshash tablesdequesqueuesstacksstringsand VLists. For this reason, the C programming language specifies that array indices always begin at 0; and many programmers will call that element " zeroth " rather than "first".

Arrays can be used to determine partial or complete control flow in programs, as a compact alternative to otherwise repetitive multiple IF statements. One-dimensional arrays[ edit ] A one-dimensional array or single dimension array is a type of linear array.

### Representation of arrays in data structure ppt

For example: int a[2][3]; This means that array a has 2 rows and 3 columns, and the array is of integer type. History[ edit ] The first digital computers used machine-language programming to set up and access array structures for data tables, vector and matrix computations, and for many other purposes. In standard arrays, each index is restricted to a certain range of consecutive integers or consecutive values of some enumerated type , and the address of an element is computed by a "linear" formula on the indices. Historically, this has sometimes been the only way to allocate "dynamic memory" portably. The above array will be stored as a11, a12, a13, a21, a22, a Array-based implementations of other data structures are frequently simple and space-efficient implicit data structures , requiring little space overhead , but may have poor space complexity, particularly when modified, compared to tree-based data structures compare a sorted array to a search tree. The array may contain subroutine pointers or relative subroutine numbers that can be acted upon by SWITCH statements that direct the path of the execution. May Applications[ edit ] Arrays are used to implement mathematical vectors and matrices , as well as other kinds of rectangular tables. Thus two indices are used for a two-dimensional array, three for a three-dimensional array, and n for an n-dimensional array. Accessing its elements involves a single subscript which can either represent a row or column index. If the numbering does not start at 0, the constant B may not be the address of any element. For example, the expressions anArrayName[0] and anArrayName[9] are the first and last elements respectively. It is often useful to pack these parameters into a record called the array's descriptor or stride vector or dope vector. This formula requires only k multiplications and k additions, for any array that can fit in memory.
