2 (normally) faster than mergesort and heapsort heapsort is another O(n log n) runtime like shell sort, depends somewhat on part of the algorithm n log n on most data
3 the idea: pick some element p (the pivot) split the array into two halves: < p > p move p into place sort the left and right subparts
4 partitioning (splitting array into small and big numbers) iterate: find leftmost element greater than pivot find rightmost element less than pivot swap them stop when the indices cross
5 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 1: pick pivot
6 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition example: pick last element Step 2: find leftmost element greater than (or equal to) pivot
7 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 2: find leftmost element greater than (or equal to) pivot
8 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 2: find leftmost element greater than (or equal to) pivot
9 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 2: find leftmost element greater than (or equal to) pivot found it!
10 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 3: find rightmost element less than (or equal to) pivot
11 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 3: find rightmost element less than (or equal to) pivot
12 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 3: find rightmost element less than (or equal to) pivot found it!
13 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition Step 4: swap the elements we found Keep iterating with steps 2/3/4
14 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition partitioning stops when left/ right index variable cross or equal each other
15 red = pivot green = left partition blue = right partition swap pivot with end of left partition or start of right partition
16 after partitioning, the pivot is in the place it should be (for the sorted array) this property is important
17 recursively sort the left and right partitions why does this work? our partitioning creates two piles each of those piles becomes two finergrained piles until it s completely sorted!
18 if we split into two evenlysized partitions: complexity? O(n log n) what s the most unbalanced the partitions can be? does this affect the complexity? recurrence relation?
19 speed depends on how we pick the pivot the actual data
20 picking the pivot first (or last) element (last shown in example) what happens on presorted or reversesorted data? we re picking the min or max one partition is empty every time O(n 2 )
21 picking the pivot middle element swap it to the end after picking it swap back later O(1) extra work, but makes the code easier how well will this work on presorted or reversed?
22 is quicksort O(n2 ) when picking middle element? yes, though it s rare how about a random element? still O(n 2 ), but can provide a probability for how unlikely it is
23 what s the ideal pivot? the median can we find the median in O(n)? why do we need to find it in O(n) or better? yes, but it s complicated and slow normal methods involve sorting
24 can we do better than middle element? median of some fixed number of elements median of three (first, mid, last) how to compute median of three? manual insertion sort or tree of if/then
25 median of three only O(1) extra work (because 3 is constant) if N is large, it s negligible, but provides better partitioning if N is small, the extra work may not be worth it what happens when we do mo3 for N=3?
26 median of three pros closer to true median than others don t need to check first/last for partitioning first serves as a sentinel (can remove loop condition) cons need special case for small arrays
27 picking pivots can we do better? depends... whatever we try must be O(n) though or else no chance of O(n log n) for the sort
28 picking pivots Tukey s ninther do three different medianofthrees take median of the medians setting it up to get a sentinel value in the first element can be challenging
29 picking pivots could insertion sort sqrt(n) data or shell sort, or merge sort, etc etc common idea: running O(n 2 ) algorithm on sqrt(n) data is O(n) overall
30 iterative version manually maintain a stack (can use vector<int>) push the left/right on, pop them off like a stack of work orders this is akin to implementing the function calls in assembly
31 small arrays can use insertion sort for small arrays just like with mergesort main difference: quicksort processes, then recurses can do a single insertion sort call after the entire tree of quicksort recursion ends usually faster than millions of insertion sort calls
32 small arrays can use insertion sort for small arrays we may want to modify the firstpass findmin if we re doing a single insertion sort call after also, beware that quicksort can be broken and it ll still sort but it ll be O(n 2 )
33 random data N = 10m 20m Shell (SW) 67s 1314s Merge (alt, small cutoff) Quicksort (basic) Quicksort (mo3, small cut) 4s 89s 4s 89s 3s 7s
34 presorted data N = 10m 20m Shell (SW) 1s 3s Merge (alt, small cutoff) Quicksort (basic) Quicksort (mo3, small cut) 1s 23s 12s 2s 1s 2s
35 notes quicksort optimizations interact with O3 a little can have a different pivot selection for large vs medium vs small arrays medof3 is relatively less costly for larger quicksort performs especially well for reversed arrays  why?
