1. What is Sorting?
Input: sequence <a1, a2, …, an> of numbers.
Output: permutation <a'1, a'2, …, a'n> such
that a'1 ≤ a'2 ≤ … ≤ a'n
Example:
Input:
Output:
8 2 4 9 3 6
2 3 4 6 8 9

Sort a list of names.
Organize an MP3 library.
List RSS feed in reverse chronological order.
Find the median.
Find the closest pair.
Binary search in a database.
Identify statistical outliers.
Find duplicates in a mailing list.
Data compression.
Computer graphics.
Computational biology.
Supply chain management.
Load balancing on a parallel computer.
...
obvious applications
problems become easy once
items are in sorted order

Stable?
Parallel?
Deterministic?
Keys all distinct?
Multiple key types?
Large or small items?
Need guaranteed performance?

Many Different Sorting Algorithms
• Internal sorts
o Insertion sort, selection sort, bubblesort, shaker sort
o Quicksort, mergesort, heapsort, samplesort, shellsort
o Solitaire sort, red-black sort, splaysort, , ...
• External sorts
o Poly-phase mergesort, cascade-merge, oscillating sort
o Distribution, MSD, LSD, 3-way string quicksort
• Parallel sorts
o Bitonic sort, Batcher even-odd sort
o Smooth sort, cube sort, column sort
o GPUsort

2. Insertion Sort
INSERTION-SORT (A, n)
⊳ A[1 . . n]
for j ← 2 to n
do key ← A[ j]
i←j–1
while i > 0 and A[i] > key
do A[i+1] ← A[i]
i←i–1
A[i+1] = key
“pseudocode”

Insertion Sort Java Code
void insertionSort(int[] A)
// A[0 .. n-1]
{
(1) for (int j = 1; j < num.length; j++) { // start with 1 (not 2)
(2)
int key = num[j];
(3)
int i = j - 1;
(4)
while((i >= 0) && (A[i] < key)) {
(5)
A[i+1] = A[i];
(6)
i--;
(7)
}
(8)
A[i+1] = key;
(9) }
}

• Lines 2, 3, 5, 6, 8: each is O(1)
• Block of 4-7
= O(1) + O(1) = O(1)
• For of 4-7 is:
this is the hard part –
assume the worse case where
the loop has to move the
most elements)
= O( (n-1) * 1) = O(n-1)
= O(n), simplified
• Block of 1-9
= O(1) + O(1) + O(n) + O(1) = O(n)
• For of 1-8 is:
= O( (n-1) * n) = O(n2 - n)
= O(n2), simplified
