static data structure
(a) none of the structural information need be stored explicitly within the elements – it is often held in a distinct logical/physical header;
(b) the elements of an allocated structure are physically contiguous, held in a single segment of memory;
(c) all descriptive information, other than the physical location of the allocated structure, is determined by the structure definition;
(d) relationships between elements do not change during the lifetime of the structure.
Relaxation of these features leads to the concept of a dynamic data structure.
