CMSC 132: Object-Oriented Programming II Sorting 1 Department of Computer Science University of Maryland, College Park Reading Read Chapter 10 in the Koffman text (Chapter 8 in the second edition) Sorting Sorting refers to rearranging a list of elements in a predetermined order, based on the key for each element Derived from ability to compare two keys by size Properties that sorting algorithms can have: Stable means the relative order of equal keys 3 remains unchanged Stable: 3 , 1, 4, 3 , 3 , 2 1, 2, 3 , 3 , 3 , 4 Unstable: 3 , 1, 4, 3 , 3 , 2 1, 2, 3 , 3 , 3 , 4 An in-place sorting algorithm uses only a constant amount of additional space An external sort sorts data that's not in memory (on disk), and has to be able to efficiently sort a large number of keys Types of sorting algorithms A comparison sort only uses pairwise key comparisons Comparison sorting has a proven lower bound of O (n log(n)) A linear sort is more efficient, but relies on 4 some additional properties of keys

Bubble sort Approach 1. Repeatedly sweep through shrinking portions of the list of elements to be sorted 2. Swap an element x with its right neighbor if x is larger 5 Bubble sort example 7 2 8 5 4 2 7 8 5 4 2 7 8 5 4 2 7 5 4 8 2 5 7 4 8 2 7 5 4 8 2 5 4 7 8 2 4 5 7 8 2 5 4 7 8 2 4 5 7 8 2 4 5 7 8 pass 1 pass 2 pass 3 pass 4 6 2 7 5 8 4 2 7 5 4 8 2 5 4 7 8 Bubble sort code void bubbleSort(int[] a) { int outer, inner; for (outer= a.length - 1; outer > 0; outer--) for (inner= 0; inner < outer; inner++) if (a[inner] > a[inner + 1]) swap(a, inner, inner + 1); } swap with right neighbor sweep through array 7 void swap(int a[], int x, int y) { int temp= a[x]; a[x]= a[y]; a[y]= temp; } if larger swap array elements at positions x and y Performance O (n 2 ) in the average and worst case Selection sort Approach 1. Iteratively sweep through shrinking portions of list 2. Select smallest element found in each sweep 3. Swap smallest element 7 2 8 5 4 2 7 8 5 4 Example: 8 with front of current list 2 4 8 5 7 2 4 5 8 7 2 4 5 7 8

Selection sort code void selectionSort(int[] a) { int outer, inner, min; for (outer= 0; outer < a.length - 1; outer++) { min= outer; for (inner= outer + 1; inner < a.length; inner++) sweep through array 9 if (a[inner] < a[min]) min= inner; swap(a, outer, min); } } swap with smallest element found find smallest element Performance O (n 2 ) in the average and worst case Tree sort Approach 1.

    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.
