Talk Description:

In this talk, I would demonstrate how immutable and persistent data structures in functional languages work and why they are more efficient than intuitions.

I would do a case study on various data-structures including array, list, relaxed Radix Balanced Trees, hash array mapped trie. The typical design methods and tradeoffs for such data structures are presented along the way. Then I would talk about the pros and cons, and some best practices of using such data structures.
