A data structure is a convenient way to organize and manipulate data. There are many kinds of data structures and each of them has distinct applications.
For instance, compiler implementations use hash tables for looking up identifiers. Similarly, B-trees are suitable for databases. Data structures are used in Artificial Intelligence, compiler design, database management, graphics, numerical analysis, operating systems, and statistical analysis.
