A LINEAR TIME SELECTION ALGORITHM
A problem closely related to, but simpler than sorting is that of the selection (also referred to as
the order statistics) problem:
The Selection problem: Given a sequen

CMPSCI611:
Three Selection Algorithms
Lecture 15
Today we will look at three linear-time algorithms for
the selection problem, where we are given a list of n
items and a number k and are asked for the kth smallest
item in a particular ordering. All three
