In this chapter you will be dealing with the various sorting techniques and their algorithms used to manipulate data structure and its storage.
Bubble Sort is a simple algorithm which is used to sort a given set of n elements provided in form of an array with n number of elements. Bubble Sort compares all the element one by one and sort them based on their values.
In computer science , selection sort is an in-place comparison sorting algorithm. It has an O n 2 time complexity , which makes it inefficient on large lists, and generally performs worse than the similar insertion sort. Selection sort is noted for its simplicity and has performance advantages over more complicated algorithms in certain situations, particularly where auxiliary memory is limited. The algorithm divides the input list into two parts: a sorted sublist of items which is built up from left to right at the front left of the list and a sublist of the remaining unsorted items that occupy the rest of the list.

A sorting algorithm is an algorithm that puts elements of a list in a certain order. The most-used orders are numerical order and lexicographical order. Sorting algorithms provide an introduction to a variety of core algorithm concepts, such as big O notation, divide and conquer algorithms, data structures, best-, worst- and average-case analysis, time-space tradeoffs, and lower bounds.
Classification : Computational complexity worst, average and best behavior of element comparisons in terms of the size of the list n. For typical sorting algorithms, a good behavior is O n log n and a bad behavior is O n 2. Computational complexity of swaps for "in place" algorithms. Memory usage and use of other computer resources. In particular, some sorting algorithms are "in place".
This means that they need only O 1 or O log n memory beyond the items being sorted and they don't need to create auxiliary locations for data to be temporarily stored, as in other sorting algorithms.
Recursion : Some algorithms are either recursive or non-recursive. Stability : Stable sorting algorithms maintain the relative order of records with equal keys i.
Whether or not they are a comparison sort. A comparison sort examines the data only by comparing two elements with a comparison operator. General methods: insertion , exchange , selection , merging , etc. Adaptability : Whether or not the presortedness of the input affects the running time. Algorithms that take this into account are known to be adaptive. Stable sorting algorithms maintain the relative order of records with equal keys.
If all keys are different then this distinction is not necessary. But if there are equal keys, then a sorting algorithm is stable if whenever there are two records let's say R and S with the same key, and R appears before S in the original list, then R will always appear before S in the sorted list. When equal elements are indistinguishable, such as with integers, or more generally, any data where the entire element is the key, stability is not an issue. However, assume that the following pairs of numbers are to be sorted by their first component:.
In this case, two different results are possible, one which maintains the relative order of records with equal keys, and one which does not:.
Bubble Sort Bubble sort is a simple sorting algorithm. It works by repeatedly stepping through the list to be sorted, comparing each pair of adjacent items and swapping them if they are in the wrong order.
The pass through the list is repeated until no swaps are needed, which indicates that the list is sorted. Because it only uses comparisons to operate on elements, it is a comparison sort. Step-by-Step Example. Assume we have an array "5 1 4 2 8" and we want to sort the array from the lowest number to the greatest number using bubble sort.
Selection Sort Selection sort is an in-place comparison sort. It has O n 2 complexity, making it inefficient on large lists, and generally performs worse than the similar insertion sort. Selection sort is noted for its simplicity, and also has performance advantages over more complicated algorithms in certain situations.
Effectively, we divide the list into two parts: the sublist of items already sorted and the sublist of items remaining to be sorted. How many comparisons does the algorithm need to perform? How many swaps does the algorithm perform in the worst case? Selecting the lowest element requires scanning all n elements this takes n -1 comparisons and then swapping it into the first position. Each of these scans requires one swap for n -1 elements.
Every iteration of insertion sort removes an element from the input data, inserting it into the correct position in the already-sorted list, until no input elements remain. The choice of which element to remove from the input is arbitrary, and can be made using almost any choice algorithm.
Sorting is typically done in-place. In each iteration the first remaining entry of the input is removed, inserted into the result at the correct position, thus extending the result. Among simple average-case O n 2 algorithms, selection sort almost always outperforms bubble sort, but is generally outperformed by insertion sort.
Experiments show that insertion sort usually performs about half as many comparisons as selection sort. Selection sort will perform identically regardless of the order the array, while insertion sort's running time can vary considerably. Insertion sort runs much more efficiently if the array is already sorted or "close to sorted. Selection sort always performs O n swaps, while insertion sort performs O n 2 swaps in the average and worst case.
Selection sort is preferable if writing to memory is significantly more expensive than reading. Insertion sort or selection sort are both typically faster for small arrays i. A useful optimization in practice for the recursive algorithms is to switch to insertion sort or selection sort for "small enough" subarrays. Merge Sort Merge sort is an O n log n comparison-based sorting algorithm. It is an example of the divide and conquer algorithmic paradigm.
We can solve the recurrence relation given above. We'll write n instead of O n in the first line below because it makes the algebra much simpler. This means we want:. To make this a formal proof you would need to use induction to show that O n log n is the solution to the given recurrence relation, but the "plug and chug" method shown above shows how to derive the solution the subsequent verification that this is the solution is something that can be left to a more advanced algorithms class.
However, in the worst case, it makes O n 2 comparisons. Typically, quicksort is significantly faster than other O n log n algorithms, because its inner loop can be efficiently implemented on most architectures, and in most real-world data, it is possible to make design choices which minimize the probability of requiring quadratic time.
Quicksort is a comparison sort and, in efficient implementations, is not a stable sort. Quicksort sorts by employing a divide and conquer strategy to divide a list into two sub-lists. Quicksort is similar to merge sort in many ways. It divides the elements to be sorted into two groups, sorts the two groups by recursive calls, and combines the two sorted groups into a single array of sorted values.
However, the method for dividing the array in half is much more sophisticated than the simple method we used for merge sort. On the other hand, the method for combining these two groups of sorted elements is trivial compared to the method used in mergesort.
The correctness of the partition algorithm is based on the following two arguments: At each iteration, all the elements processed so far are in the desired position: before the pivot if less than or equal to the pivot's value, after the pivot otherwise.
Each iteration leaves one fewer element to be processed. The disadvantage of the simple version above is that it requires O n extra storage space, which is as bad as merge sort. The additional memory allocations required can also drastically impact speed and cache performance in practical implementations. There is a more complex version which uses an in-place partition algorithm and use much less space.
The choice of a good pivot element is critical to the efficiency of the quicksort algorithm. If we can ensure that the pivot element is near the median of the array values, then quicksort is very efficient. One technique that is often used to increase the likelihood of choosing a good pivot element is to randomly choose three values from the array and then use the middle of these three values as the pivot element. Let's try the quicksort algorithm with the following array: 40, 20, 10, 80, 60, 50, 7, 30, , 90, and Heapsort is similar to selection sort in that it locates the largest value and places it in the final array position.
Then it locates the next largest value and places it in the next-to-last array position and so forth. However, heapsort uses a much more efficient algorithm to locate the array values to be moved. The heapsort begins by building a heap out of the data set, and then removing the largest item and placing it at the end of the sorted array.
After removing the largest item, it reconstructs the heap and removes the largest remaining item and places it in the next open position from the end of the sorted array. This is repeated until there are no items left in the heap and sorted array is full.
Elementary implementations require two arrays -- one to hold the heap and the other to hold the sorted elements. In advanced implementation however, we have an efficient method for representing a heap complete binary tree in an array and thus do not need an extra data structure to hold the heap. Let's try the algorithm with the following binary heap stored in an array: 45, 27, 42, 21, 23, 22, 35, 19, 4, and 5. Back To Lectures Notes. Introduction to Sorting Algorithm. Stability Stable sorting algorithms maintain the relative order of records with equal keys.
Bubble sort is a simple sorting algorithm. Step-by-Step Example Assume we have an array "5 1 4 2 8" and we want to sort the array from the lowest number to the greatest number using bubble sort.
Performance Worst case performance: O n 2 Best case performance: O n Average case performance: O n 2 Worst case space complexity: O n total, O 1 auxiliary Bubble sort is not a practical sorting algorithm when n is large.
Selection sort is an in-place comparison sort. Algorithm Find the minimum value in the list Swap it with the value in the first position Repeat the steps above for the remainder of the list starting at the second position and advancing each time Effectively, we divide the list into two parts: the sublist of items already sorted and the sublist of items remaining to be sorted.
Example : Consider an example of sorting "64 25 12 22 11". Analysis Selecting the lowest element requires scanning all n elements this takes n -1 comparisons and then swapping it into the first position.
Insertion sort is a comparison sort in which the sorted array or list is built one entry at a time. It is much less efficient on large lists than more advanced algorithms such as quicksort, heapsort, or merge sort. However, insertion sort provides several advantages: Simple implementation Efficient for small data sets Adaptive, i. Example: Consider an example of sorting "64 25 12 22 11".
Merge sort is an O n log n comparison-based sorting algorithm. Algorithm Conceptually, a merge sort works as follows: If the list is of length 0 or 1, then it is already sorted.
Otherwise: Divide the unsorted list into two sublists of about half the size.
Sorting refers to arranging data in a particular format. Sorting algorithm specifies the way to arrange data in a particular order. Most common orders are in numerical or lexicographical order. The importance of sorting lies in the fact that data searching can be optimized to a very high level, if data is stored in a sorted manner. Sorting is also used to represent data in more readable formats. Sorting algorithms may require some extra space for comparison and temporary storage of few data elements.

I am too fascinated how algorithms made an impact in our day-to-day lives. An algorithm is a finite sequence of precise instructions for performing a computation or for solving a problem. Now before heading up to main topic, I want to share the basics of analysis of the algorithms including time complexity and space complexity. Always a question arises -.
We have learned that in order to write a computer program which performs some task we must construct a suitable algorithm. However, whatever algorithm we construct is unlikely to be unique — there are likely to be many possible algorithms which can perform the same task. Are some of these algorithms in some sense better than others? Algorithm analysis is the study of this question. Algorithm analysis should begin with a clear statement of the task to be performed.

In computer science , best , worst, and average cases of a given algorithm express what the resource usage is at least , at most and on average , respectively. Usually the resource being considered is running time, i. Best case is the function which performs the minimum number of steps on input data of n elements.
The sorting algorithms Insertion sort. Insertion sort is good only for sorting small arrays usually less than items. In fact, the smaller the array, the faster insertion sort is compared to any other sorting algorithm. However, being an O n 2 algorithm, it becomes very slow very quick when the size of the array increases.
