Why is processing a sorted array faster than processing an unsorted array?
As many of us know, or as you'll soon learn, sorting is an essential operation in computer science that arranges elements in a specific order. It's a common task that is used in many algorithms, data structures, and applications. When dealing with arrays, sorting them can significantly improve their performance....
Graph Theory and Graph-Related Algorithm's Theory and Implementation
Graphs are an extremely versatile data structure. More so than most people realize! Graphs can be used to model practically anything, given their nature of modeling relationships and hierarchies. Nature and human creators are extremely hierarchical. Words in a sentence, and sentences in a book can be graphs - represented...
Graphs in Java: Minimum Spanning Trees - Prim's Algorithm
Graphs are a convenient way to store certain types of data. The concept was ported from mathematics and appropriated for the needs of computer science. Due to the fact that many things can be represented as graphs, graph traversal has become a common task, especially used in data science and...
How to Write a Makefile - Automating Python Setup, Compilation, and Testing
When you want to run a project that has multiple sources, resources, etc., you need to make sure that all of the code is recompiled before the main program is compiled or run. For example, imagine our software looks something like this: main_program.source -> uses the libraries...
