The Study of Sorting

I was directed to this page the other day ( and I’d recommend it to anyone who is interested in the design, various implementations and benefits/detrements of several major sorting algorithms.

There are excellent visual representations of the algorithms actively sorting data from various states (i.e. random data, reversed, etc.). Also, for each algorithm, you can view it’s pseudocode and efficiency properties – if that’s even a real term =).

If you have a couple minutes, check it out and learn about how we sort our data!
