# DSA Basics

## Introduction to DSA

A data structure is a group of data elements that provides the easiest way to store and perform different actions on the data of the computer. A data structure is a particular way of organizing data in a computer so that it can be used effectively. The idea is to reduce the space and time complexities of different tasks. The choice of a good data structure makes it possible to perform a variety of critical operations effectively. An efficient data structure also uses minimum memory space and execution time to process the structure.

## Real Time Applications Of Data Structures

A data structure is a particular way of organizing data in a computer so that it can be used effectively.

## Types of Data Structures

Data structures are an integral part of computers used for the arrangement of data in memory. They are essential and responsible for organizing, processing, accessing, and storing data efficiently.

## Algorithms

An algorithm can be stated as a step-by-step procedure that defines a set of instructions that must be carried out in a specific order to produce the desired result. Algorithms are generally developed independently of other programming languages, which means that an algorithm can be executed or implemented in more than one programming language.

## Algorithms Classification

An Algorithm is a procedure to solve a particular problem in a finite number of steps for a finite-sized input.
