Sorting Algorithm Animations

Sorting Algorithm Animations
Discussion These pages show 8 different sorting algorithms on 4 different initial conditions. These visualizations are intended to: Show how each algorithm operates. Show that there is no best sorting algorithm. Show the advantages and disadvantages of each algorithm.

The Algorithm: Idiom of Modern Science by Bernard Chazelle hen the great Dane of 20th century physics, Niels Bohr, was not busy chewing on a juicy morsel of quantum mechanics, he was known to yap away witticisms worthy of Yogi Berra. The classic Bohrism “Prediction is difficult, especially about the future” alas came too late to save Lord Kelvin. Just as physics was set to debut in Einstein's own production of Extreme Makeover, Kelvin judged the time ripe to pen the field's obituary: “There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now.”

CS 240 Computer Science II Syllabus Spring 2008 SYLLABUS This page last changed 6/19/08 Objectives: To develop skills in the design and development of computer software continuing to utilize an object-oriented language, packages, modules and libraries. To develop understanding and build skills in the implementation and use of common data structures used in software development through data abstraction. To further study the Java language and learn to use UNIX as a software design environment. Common Data Structures and Algorithms Estimated Time: 1-2 hrs The basic idea of a data structure is to store data in a way that meets the needs of your particular application. You might be inclined to store a particular kind data in one giant array, but it would be rather time consuming to locate a specific value if you had a significant number and depth of items. So you need to look to other options.

10 Usability Tips Based on Research Studies We hear plenty usability tips and techniques from an incalculable number of sources. Many of the ones we take seriously have sound logic, but it’s even more validating when we find actual data and reports to back up their theories and conjectures. This article discusses usability findings of research results such as eye-tracking studies, reports, analytics, and usability surveys pertaining to website usability and improvements. You’ll discover that many of these usability tips will be common sense but are further supported with numbers; however, some might surprise you and change your outlook on your current design processes. 1.

Java SE 7 Collections-Related APIs and Developer Guides The collections framework is a unified architecture for representing and manipulating collections, enabling them to be manipulated independently of the details of their representation. It reduces programming effort while increasing performance. It enables interoperability among unrelated APIs, reduces effort in designing and learning new APIs, and fosters software reuse. » A Speculative Post on the Idea of Algorithmic Authority Clay Shirky Jack Balkin invited me to be on a panel yesterday at Yale’s Information Society Project conference, Journalism & The New Media Ecology, and I used my remarks to observe that one of the things up for grabs in the current news environment is the nature of authority. In particular, I noted that people trust new classes of aggregators and filters, whether Google or Twitter or Wikipedia (in its ‘breaking news’ mode.) I called this tendency algorithmic authority.

Reverse a linked list in java « Think ! If you search for it you will get millions of solutions but sadly (like many things in internet) the first few solutions seem unintuitive and unnecessarily complex for such a simple problem, not sure why, anyway putting mine out there for somebody to point out why I should go for a more complex solution. [in java for a change] Idea : Use two references and reverse their links and proceed till we reach the end public void reverse_iterative { if(isEmpty()) { return;} //curr == null Node currNode,nextNode , loopNode; currNode = head; nextNode =; = null; while(nextNode ! Data Structures and Algorithms Estimated Time: 6-10 hours Don't forget to use Git to save your projects! Project 1: Searching Binary Trees You learned about binary search trees -- where you take a group of data items and turn them into a tree full of nodes where each left node is "lower" than each right node. The tree starts with the "root node" and any node with no children is called a "leaf node". You also learned about tree search algorithms like breadth-first-search and depth-first-search.

Introduction During hard times sooner or later everyone runs out of soap. Lecture 3: Divide-and-Conquer: Strassen, Fibonacci, Polynomial Multiplication Download this transcript - PDF (English - US) Transcript - Lecture 3 Good morning everyone. Today we are going to do some algorithms, back to algorithms, and we are going to use a lot of the, well, some of the simpler mathematics that we developed last class like the master theorem for solving recurrences. We are going to use this a lot.

A clustering algorithm based on swarm intelligence This paper focuses on swarm intelligence based clustering algorithm. A clustering algorithm based on swarm intelligence is systematically proposed. It derived from a basic model interpreting ant colony organization of cemeteries. Some important concepts, such as swarm similarity, swarm similarity coefficient and probability conversion function are also proposed. Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures This web site is hosted by the Software and Systems Division, Information Technology Laboratory, NIST in collaboration with the FASTAR group. Development of this dictionary started in 1998 under the editorship of Paul E. Black. This is a dictionary of algorithms, algorithmic techniques, data structures, archetypal problems, and related definitions. Algorithms include common functions, such as Ackermann's function.
