CSS 342: Mathematical Principles of Computing Lab 4: Sorting - Quicksort Professor: Munehiro Fukuda Assigned: See Our Syllabus Purpose This laboraotry work explores quicksort by arranging its algorithm to find the top k items, the bottom k items, and the median. Partial Sorting Sometimes we are interested in a partially sorted data set. For example, we might need to know the top 10 best sellers, the 20 highest-grossing movies, or the top 10% students by GPA. These partial sets can be obtained without completing quicksort on an entire data set, in other words, just by performing quicksort for the first several partiions in a particular range. Statement of Work This is a group work. Form a group of two students. (If you can't find a partner, you may form a group of three.) Decide which problem your group solve, using the following formula: (1) calculate the sum of all the group members' student IDs, (say N ); and (2) calculate the remainder of N / 3, (say Q = N % 3 ).

    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.
