Sounds just like every video game I played in the 70s!

I give it a 98, `cause you can dance to it.

Selection, Insertion, Bubble, and Gnome have O(n^2) average case performance.

Mergesort and quicksort have O(nlogn) average case.

That`s why some tend to take longer than others.

Now if this isn`t work out music, I don`t know what is

Whichever one starts at 1:56 - that`s the bomb.

Yes I`m watching this on a Saturday night...

Some of the algorithms I`ve never even thought of, while others seem highly ineffective

Cajun: It`s been decades since I coded any kind of sorting program, so it was interesting to see those algorithms.

Cocktail sort is simply a bubble sort going back and forth.

Bogo sort simply "shuffles" the array like a deck of cards until it is sorted.

Merge sort (stable sort uses a variant of this)

Quicksort

Heapsort

Radix sort

Shellsort

Gnome sort

I swear, the sounds like a cross between dial-up and and an 8-bit game.

Am I too much of a nerd to recognize how the algorithms work just by seeing this video?

I knew 4 of these before. The bubble, shell, insertion and selection sorts are rather straight forward. Like to see the code for the others though, to confirm my guesses.

Thanks, thought I`d take a break from political posts. Software Engineering a cool thing. Some of these algorithms I`m rather unfamiliar with though ("Bitonic sort").
