Applications of Stack

In this tutorial, We learn applications of stack in data structure and provide a list of stack applications in real life. Also, You will see applications for stack and queue in real life.

A stack is a linear data structure in which objects are just like a pile of the CD on CD spindle(whose one end is closed and other is open) kept on top of each other. Stack work on LIFO(Last IN First OUT) order. Below I share the design for the stack to easily understand stack operations push and pop operation of stacks.

Applications of Stack

In this below list of 10 best practical examples of stack applications.

Expression Evaluation

It can be used to evaluate postfix, prefix, and infix expression.

Expression Conversion

A stack is used to converting one expression into another.
  1. Infix to Postfix
  2. Infix to Prefix
  3. Postfix to Infix
  4. Prefix to Infix

Mathematical Puzzle

In real life, the concept of the stack is used to solve the Tower of Hanoi Puzzle. It is the best example valid recursion of applications of stack.

Memory Management

Memory is allocated in a contiguous block. Any modern computer environment uses a stack as the primary memory management model for a running program.

Reversal String

A stack can be used in the reversed string. We push elements into the stack and pop elements from the stack. then, print the pop element one by one.

Parenthesis Matching

The stack is used by compiler syntax to checking the parenthesis matching in the program i.e. matching of left and right parenthesis is implemented by using stack.

Syntax Parsing

Compilers must parse source code to be able to translate it into low-level code.
Backtracking is used as an algorithm designing technique.

Function Call

The stack can be used in a function call.

Tower of Hanoi

This is a valid stack application in terms of recursion. These maths problem program use of stack in recursion with example in this link Learn Tower of Hanoi 

Below I will provide a link of Applications of stack and queue in real life 

In this tutorial, You see applications of stack and There are many other applications. And also applications of stack in real life. Above I provide a link of applications of stack in real life. Comment below if you have any problem in the above article do not hesitate. 

Happy Coding ๐Ÿ˜Š
