Abstract data type


Abstract data type: In computer science, an abstract data type is a mathematical model for a certain class of data structures that have similar behavior; or for certain data types of one or more programming languages that have similar semantics. An abstract data type is defined only by the operations that may be performed on it and by mathematical pre-conditions and constraints on the effects of those operations. They were first proposed by Barbara Liskov and Stephen N. Zilles in 1974.
