Insertion Sort Algorithm -It sorts a list of values by repetitively inserting a particular value into a subset of the list that has already been sorted. Example: 1 9 6 1 2 9 should be inserted after 3 – no change 3 9 6 1 2 6 should be inserted between 3 and 9 3 6 9 1 2 1 should be inserted before 3 1 3 6 9 2 2 should be inserted between 1 and 3 1 2 3 6 9 The complexity of the insertion sort algorithm is order of n 2

Unformatted text preview: { for (int index = 1; index < numbers.length; index++) { int key = numbers[index]; int position = index; // shift larger values to the right while (position > 0 && numbers[position-1] > key) { numbers[position] = numbers[position-1]; position--; } numbers[position] = key; } } Comparisons are done in this line. A similar computation to the one for selection sort results into: Best Case when an input array is already sorted - O(n) Worst Case when an input array is in the reverse order - O( n 2 ) We consider the worst case for its upper bound, So the insertion sort algorithm is O( n 2 )...
