Data Structures and AlgorithmsArrays : Popular Sorting and Searching Algorithms
 Bubble Sort  One of the most elementary sorting algorithms to implement  and also very inefficient. Runs in quadratic time. A good starting point to understand sorting in general, before moving on to more advanced techniques and algorithms. A general idea of how the algorithm works and a the code for a C program. Insertion Sort  Another quadratic time sorting algorithm  an example of dynamic programming. An explanation and step through of how the algorithm works, as well as the source code for a C program which performs insertion sort. Selection Sort  Another quadratic time sorting algorithm  an example of a greedy algorithm. An explanation and step through of how the algorithm works, as well as the source code for a C program which performs selection sort. Shell Sort An inefficient but interesting algorithm, the complexity of which is not exactly known. Merge Sort An example of a Divide and Conquer algorithm. Works in O(n log n) time. The memory complexity for this is a bit of a disadvantage. Quick Sort In the average case, this works in O(n log n) time. No additional memory overhead  so this is better than merge sort in this regard. A partition element is selected, the array is restructured such that all elements greater or less than the partition are on opposite sides of the partition. These two parts of the array are then sorted recursively. Heap Sort Efficient sorting algorithm which runs in O(n log n) time. Uses the Heap data structure. Binary Search Algorithm Commonly used algorithm used to find the position of an element in a sorted array. Runs in O(log n) time. 
Basic Data Structures and Operations on them  Stacks Last In First Out data structures ( LIFO ). Like a stack of cards from which you pick up the one on the top ( which is the last one to be placed on top of the stack ). Documentation of the various operations and the stages a stack passes through when elements are inserted or deleted. C program to help you get an idea of how a stack is implemented in code. Queues First in First Out data structure (FIFO). Like people waiting to buy tickets in a queue  the first one to stand in the queue, gets the ticket first and gets to leave the queue first. Documentation of the various operations and the stages a queue passes through as elements are inserted or deleted. C Program source code to help you get an idea of how a queue is implemented in code. Single Linked List A self referential data structure. A list of elements, with a head and a tail; each element points to another of its own kind. Double Linked List A self referential data structure. A list of elements, with a head and a tail; each element points to another of its own kind in front of it, as well as another of its own kind, which happens to be behind it in the sequence. Circular Linked List Linked list with no head and tail  elements point to each other in a circular fashion. 
Tree Data Structures  Binary Search Trees A basic form of tree data structures. Inserting and deleting elements in them. Different kind of binary tree traversal algorithms. Heaps  A tree like data structure where every element is lesser (or greater) than the one above it. Heap formation, sorting using heaps in O(n log n) time. Height Balanced Trees  Ensuring that trees remain balanced to optimize complexity of operations which are performed on them. 
Graphs and Graph Algorithms
Popular Algorithms in Dynamic Programming  Dynamic Programming A technique used to solve optimization problems, based on identifying and solving subparts of a problem first.

Longest Common Subsequence Given two strings, find the longest common sub sequence between them. Dynamic Programming Algorithms covered previously: Insertion Sort, Floyd Warshall Algorithm Algorithms which we already covered, which are example of dynamic programming.
