Sorting

Sorting

Sorting is the process of arranging elements in a specific order, usually in ascending or descending order, based on some criteria or key. Sorting is a fundamental operation in computer science and is used in various applications and algorithms.

There are many sorting algorithms available, each with its own characteristics, efficiency, and best-case/worst-case time complexity. Some commonly used sorting algorithms include:



The choice of sorting algorithm depends on various factors such as the size of the data, the expected range of values, stability requirements, memory usage, and desired time complexity. Each sorting algorithm has its own trade-offs in terms of time complexity, space complexity, and stability.

Sorting is a fundamental concept in computer science, and understanding different sorting algorithms is essential for efficiently manipulating and organizing data in various applications.
