- 1. Data Structures and AlgorithmsObjectives In this session, you will learn to: Identify the algorithms that can be used to sort data Sort data by using bubble sort Sort data by using selection sort Sort data by using insertion sort Sort data by using shell sort Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 2. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSorting Data Suppose, you have to invite your friends and relatives for your birthday party. For this, you need to give them a call. You are looking for the telephone number of a friend named Steve in a telephone directory with 10,000 records. However, the records are stored randomly and not in any particular order. Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 3. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSorting Data (Contd.) To search for the telephone number of your friend in such a directory, you would need to scan each entry in the directory in a sequential manner. This would be very time consuming. How can you solve this problem? Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 4. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSorting Data (Contd.) A simple solution to save time, and search records efficiently is sorting. Sorting is the process of arranging data in some pre-defined order or sequence. The order can be either ascending or descending. If the data is ordered, you can directly go to the section that stores the names starting with ‘S’, thereby reducing the number of records to be traversed. Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 5. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSelecting a Sorting Algorithm Sorting is implemented in a program by using an algorithm.

- 102. Data Structures and AlgorithmsDetermining the Efficiency of Insertion Sort Algorithm To sort a list of size n by using insertion sort, you need to perform (n – 1) passes. Best Case Efficiency: Best case occurs when the list is already sorted. In this case, you will have to make only one comparison in each pass. In n – 1 passes, you will need to make n – 1 comparisons. The best case efficiency of insertion sort is of the order O(n). Worst Case Efficiency: – Worst case occurs when the list is sorted in the reverse order. – In this case, you need to perform one comparison in the first pass, two comparisons in the second pass, three comparisons in the third pass, and n – 1 comparisons in the (n – 1)th pass. – The worst case efficiency of insertion sort is of the order O(n2).

- 103. Data Structures and AlgorithmsJust a minute A sales manager has to do a research on best seller cold drinks in the market for the year 2004-2006. David, the software developer, has a list of all the cold drink brands along with their sales figures stored in a file. David has to provide the sorted data to the sales manager. The data in the file is more or less sorted. Which sorting algorithm will be most efficient for sorting this data and why? Answer: Insertion sort provides better efficiency than bubble sort and selection sort when the list is partially sorted. Therefore, David should use the insertion sort algorithm. Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 104. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSorting Data by Using Shell Sort Shell sort algorithm: Insertion sort is an efficient algorithm only if the list is already partially sorted and results in an inefficient solution in an average case. To overcome this limitation, a computer scientist, D.L. Shell proposed an improvement over the insertion sort algorithm. The new algorithm was called shell sort after the name of its proposer.

- 117. Data Structures and AlgorithmsJust a minute Which of the following sorting algorithms compares the elements separated by a distance of several positions to sort the data? The options are: 1. Insertion sort 2. Selection sort 3. Bubble sort 4. Shell sort Answer: 4. Shell sort Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 118. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSummary In this session, you learned that: Sorting is a process of arranging data in some pre-defined order of a key value. The order can be either ascending or descending. There are various sorting algorithms that are used to sort data. Some of them are: Bubble sort Selection sort Insertion sort Shell sort Merge sort Quick sort Heap sort Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 119. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSummary (Contd.) To select an appropriate algorithm, you need to consider the following: – Execution time – Storage space – Programming effort – Bubble sort and selection algorithms have a quadratic order of growth, and are therefore suitable for sorting small lists only. – Insertion sort performs different number of comparisons depending on the initial ordering of elements. When the elements are already in the sorted order, insertion sort needs to make very few comparisons. – Insertion sort is an efficient algorithm than bubble sort and selection sort if the list that needs to be sorted is nearly sorted. Ver. 1.0 Session 4
- 120. Data Structures and AlgorithmsSummary (Contd.) Shell sort improves insertion sort by comparing the elements separated by a distance of several positions. This helps an element to take a bigger step towards its correct position, thereby reducing the number of comparisons. Ver. 1.0 Session 4
