Introduction Quick sort or quicksort (sometimes called partition-exchange sort) is an efficient and very fast sorting algorithm for internal sorting, serving as a systematic method for placing the elements of an array in order. When implemented well, it can be about two or three times faster than its main competitors, merge sort and heapsort. In…

Introduction Bubble sort is one of the most popular sorting methods. It can be treated as a selection sort because it is based on successively selecting the smallest element, second smallest element and so on. In order to find the successive smallest elements this process relies heavily on the exchange of the adjacent elements and…

Selection sorting refers to a class of algorithms for sorting a list of items using comparisons. These algorithms select successively smaller or larger items from the list and add them to the output sequence. This is an improvement of the Simple Selection Sort and it is called Straight Selection Sort. Therefore, instead of replacing the…

The simplest possible technique based on the principle of repeated selection makes use of “n” passes over an array elements. In the i-th pass, the i-th smallest element is selected from the given array and it is placed in the i-th position of a separate output array. The already selected element is not selected next…

I will show here an example on shell sort (invented by Donald Shell) using C programming language. This method makes repeated use of straight insertion or shuttle sort. The method starts by sorting pairs of elements far apart from each other, then progressively reducing the gap between elements to be compared. An array with n…

Insertion sort is a simple sorting algorithm that builds the final sorted array (or list) one item at a time. More details can be found here at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insertion_sort Let’s say we have an array a, so at each i-th pass, a[i] is successively compared with a[i-1], a[i-2], etc. until an element smaller than a[i] is…

In Shuttle Sort technique for n elements in an array a, it requires n-1 passes. When i-th pass(1<=i<=n) begins, the first i elements, i.e., elements a[0] to a[i-1] have been sorted and these occupy the first i positions of the array. To insert (i+1)th element, a[i] is compared with a[i-1] and if the value of…

This example shows how Binary Search Algorithm works and I am going to implement it using C programming language. Binary search, also known as half-interval search, logarithmic search, or binary chop, is a search algorithm that finds the position of a target value within a sorted array. Binary search compares the target value to the…

This example shows how Sequential Search algorithm works. In sequential or linear search an element is searched or found in a list. Simple way to search for a key value k in an array a is to compare the values of the elements in a with k. The process starts with the first element of…

Introduction This example shows an example on multiplication of two polynomials using C program. For multiplication of two polynomials we will use here Structure, which is a composite data type, in which we can define all data types under the same name or object. Size of the Structure is determined by computing the size of…

This example shows how to add two polynomials using C program. For addition of two polynomials we will use here Structure, which is a composite data type, in which we can define all data types under the same name or object. Size of the Structure is determined by computing the size of all data types,…

Introduction This example will show you how to compute transpose of a matrix in C program. In this example a user will be asked to enter the number of rows and columns for matrices. Then user will be asked to enter the elements at each index of the matrix. A matrix has to be square…
