16. [BB] Sort the list into increasing order
al
~
a2
~
...
~
an.
If
n
=
2m
+
1 is odd, the median is
am;
if
n
=
2m is even, the median is
~
(am
+
am
+
1). Since determining the parity of
n
adds only another
operation, the complexity of this algorithm is the complexity of the sort, at best
0
(
n
log
n).
