This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Algorithms and Data Structures, WADS '95, held in Kingston, Canada in August 1995. The book presents 40 full refereed papers selected from a total of 121 submissions together with invited papers by Preparata and Bilardi, Sharir, Toussaint, and Vitanyi and Li. The book addresses various aspects of algorithms, data structures, computational geometry, scheduling, computational graph theory, and searching.
