Data Structure Quotes

It is better to have 100 functions operate on one data structure than 10 functions on 10 data structures.
— Anonymous. —

Following the path of earlier unificationists, one of Eddington's aims was to reduce the contingencies in the description of nature, for example, by explaining the fundamental constants of physics rather than accepting them as merely experimental data. One of these constants was the fine-structure constant ... , which entered prominently in Dirac's theory and was known to be about 1/137.

— Helge Kragh

Tyler Cowen Quotes: Today most of the debate on the cutting
Today most of the debate on the cutting edge in macroeconomics would not call itself "Keynesian" or "monetarist" or any other label relating to a school of thought. The data are considered the ruling principle, and it is considered suspect to have too strong a loyalty to any particular model about the underlying structure of the economy.

— Tyler Cowen

Rob Pike Quotes: To write a kernel without a data
To write a kernel without a data structure and have it be as consistent and graceful as UNIX would have been a much, much harder challenge.

— Rob Pike

The key to a solid foundation in data structures and algorithms is not an exhaustive survey of every conceivable data structure and its subforms, with memorization of each's Big-O value and amortized cost.

— Robert Love

Anonymous. Quotes: It is better to have 100 functions
It is better to have 100 functions operate on one data structure than 10 functions on 10 data structures.

— Anonymous.

The Engineer began dismantling the helmet at a breakneck speed, stacking the components-faceplate, lining, mikes, data processor, even microfans-on the nearest flat surface, a hydroplane-like structure on a small vessel.

— Karen Traviss

But when you look at CMB map, you also see that the structure that is observed, is in fact, in a weird way, correlated with the plane of the earth around the sun. Is this Copernicus coming back to haunt us? That's crazy. We're looking out at the whole universe. There's no way there should be a correlation of structure with our motion of the earth around the sun - the plane of the earth around the sun - the ecliptic. That would say we are truly the center of the universe. The new results are either telling us that all of science is wrong and we're the center of the universe, or maybe the data is (s)imply incorrect, or maybe it's telling us there's something weird about the microwave background results and that maybe, maybe there's something wrong with our theories on the larger scales.

— Lawrence M. Krauss

The mechanist is intimately convinced that a precise knowledge of the chemical constitution, structure, and properties of the various organelles of a cell will solve biological problems. This will come in a few centuries. For the time being, the biologist has to face such concepts as orienting forces or morphogenetic fields. Owing to the scarcity of chemical data and to the complexity of life, and despite the progresses of biochemistry, the biologist is still threatened with vertigo.

— Andre Michel Lwoff

The programmer's primary weapon in the never-ending battle against slow system is to change the intramodular structure. Our first response should be to reorganize the modules' data structures.

— Fred Brooks

The term architecture is used here to describe the attributes of a system as seen by the programmer, i.e., the conceptual structure and functional behavior, as distinct from the organization of the data flow and controls, the logical design, and the physical implementation. i. Additional details concerning the architecture

— Fred Brooks

It's easy to make mistakes that only come out much later, after you've already implemented a lot of code. You'll realize Oh I should have used a different type of data structure. Start over from scratch.

— Guido Van Rossum

A data structure is just a stupid programming language.

— Bill Gosper

Victor J. Stenger Quotes: Thought without the data on which to
Thought, without the data on which to structure that thought, leads nowhere.

— Victor J. Stenger

Precisely constructed models for linguistic structure can play an important role, both negative and positive, in the process of discovery itself. By pushing a precise but inadequate formulation to an unacceptable conclusion, we can often expose the exact source of this inadequacy and, consequently, gain a deep understanding of the linguistic data. More positively, a formalized theory may automatically provide solutions for many problems other than those for which it was explicitly designed.

— Noam Chomsky
