It sounds like you are wanting something akin to Numerical Recipes:

However, note that good books on data structures will be language agnostic (as they should be...). If you are wanting meaty, comprehensive, & dense, Cormen's Introduction to Algorithms is perhaps the best:

http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-A...5736157&sr=1-1

Note that Cormen, et. al. approaches both algorithms & the data structures needed to implement such algorithms from a traditional mathematical standpoint. As such, this book is frequently used in graduate-level coursework. It is also a timeless text, much in the same manner as Knuth's The Art of Computer Programming:
