22.6.5 Class template priority_­queue [priority.queue] Overview [priqueue.overview]

Any sequence container with random access iterator and supporting operations front(), push_­back() and pop_­back() can be used to instantiate priority_­queue.
In particular, vector and deque can be used.
Instantiating priority_­queue also involves supplying a function or function object for making priority comparisons; the library assumes that the function or function object defines a strict weak ordering.
