  1. push-down list

    A push-down list, also known as a stack, is a linear data structure that follows a particular order in which the operations are performed. The order may be Last In First Out (LIFO) or First In Last Out (FILO). It contains two main operations, 'push' where an element is added to the collection, and 'pop' where the most recently added element that was not yet removed is removed. No random access to data elements is allowed which makes it a very controlled structure. It is called a push-down list because, metaphorically, the elements are pushed down onto the stack and retrieved from the top of the stack. It is commonly used in programming and memory organization in computer systems.
