Homework Assignments

We will have 3 homework assignments. (Due 2nd, 4th, and 6th week of the classes)
  • Homework Assignment 01 - due Aug 12, Tuesday
    Select two of the sorting algorithms: Bubblesort, Insertionsort, Selectionsort, Mergesort, Heapsort, and Quicksort and write at least one page description of each algorithm, followed up by an example sorting process. The example should clarify the properties of the sorting algorithm and the array (of integers) needs to be large enough to show these properties. Write a brief description of the differences of these two algorithms.
