COP 3503 – Computer Science II CLASS NOTES - DAY #11 Supplement Elementary Sorting Algorithms Selection Sort Selection sort is an attempt to localize the exchanges of array elements by finding a misplaced element first and putting it in its final place. The element with the lowest value is selected and exchanged with the element in the first position. Then for the remaining elements the smallest value is found and interchanged with the second position in the array, and so on. Example – Selection Sort Initial array 7 5 2 3 1 4 6 First swap produces (underlined cells indicate sorted portion of the array) 1 5 2 3 7 4 6 Second swap produces 1 2 5 3 7 4 6 Third swap produces 1 2 3 5 7 4 6 Fourth swap produces 1 2 3 4 7 5 6 Fifth swap produces 1 2 3 4 5 7 6 Sixth swap produces – completes sort 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Day 11 Supplement - 1

Pseudocode and Java Implementations of Selection Sort Pseudocode version selectionsort(data[ ]) for (i = 0; i < data.length-1; i++) select the smallest element among data[i] , …, data[data.length-1]; swap it with data[i]; Generic Java version public void selectionsort( Object[ ] data) { int i, j, least; for (i=0;i < data.length-1; i++) { for j = i + 1; least = i; j < data.length; j++) if (((Comparable) data[j]).compareTo.(data[least]) < 0) least = j; swap(data,least, i); } } where swap( ) exchanges elements data[least], and data[i].

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
