Insertion Sort
Insertion sort belongs to the O(n2) sorting algorithms. Unlike many sorting algorithms with quadratic complexity, it is actually applied in practice for sorting small arrays of data. For instance, it is used to improve quicksort routine. Some sources notice, that people use same algorithm ordering items, for example, hand of cards. Algorithm

Insertion sort algorithm somewhat resembles selection sort. Array is imaginary divided into two parts - sorted one and unsorted one. At the beginning, sorted part contains first element of the array and unsorted one contains the rest. At every step, algorithm takes first element in the unsorted part and inserts it to the right place of the sorted one. When unsorted part becomes empty, algorithm stops. Sketchy, insertion sort algorithm step looks like this: [pic]

The idea of the sketch was originaly posted here.
Let us see an example of insertion sort routine to make the idea of algorithm clearer. Example. Sort {7, -5, 2, 16, 4} using insertion sort.

The ideas of insertion
The main operation of the algorithm is insertion. The task is to insert a value into the sorted part of the array. Let us see the variants of how we can do it. "Sifting down" using swaps
The simplest way to insert next element into the sorted part is to sift it down, until it occupies correct position. Initially the element stays right after the sorted part. At each step algorithm compares the element with one before it and, if they stay in reversed order, swap them. Let us see an illustration. [pic]

This approach writes sifted element to temporary position many times. Next implementation eliminates those unnecessary writes. Shifting instead of swapping
We can modify previous algorithm, so it will write sifted element only to the final correct position. Let us see an illustration. [pic]
It is the most commonly used modification of the insertion sort. Using binary search
It is reasonable to use binary search...

Bubble sort, often incorrectly referred to as sinking sort, is a simple sorting algorithm that works by repeatedly stepping through the list to be sorted, comparing each pair of adjacent items and swapping them if they are in the wrong order. The pass through the list is repeated until no swaps are needed, which indicates that the list is sorted. The algorithm gets its name from the way smaller elements "bubble" to the top of the list. Because it only uses comparisons to operate on elements, it is a comparison sort. Although the algorithm is simple, some other algorithms are more efficient for sorting large lists.

History of shaker sort
Shaker Sort
(implemented by Jason Harrison)
Shaker Sort is like Selection Sort in that it passes over the unsorted part of the array to select the next element(s) to add to the sorted part. It differs in that with each pass it looks for the smallest and the largest remaining element. It then moves the smallest element into its position at the left end of the array and the largest element into position at the right end. Thus the sorted part of the array grows from each end.

What is Shaker Sort?
Shaker sort, also known as bidirectional bubble sort, cocktail shaker sort, shaker sort (which can also refer to a variant of selection sort), ripple sort, shuffle sort,[1] shuttle sort or happy hour sort, is a variation of bubble sort that is both a stable sorting algorithm and a comparison sort. The algorithm differs from a bubble sort in that it sorts in both directions on each pass through the list. This sorting algorithm is only marginally more difficult to implement than a bubble sort, and solves the problem of turtles in...

ABSTRACT
Sorting involves rearranging information into either ascending or descending order. There are many sorting algorithms, among which is Bubble Sort. Bubble Sort is not known to be a very good sorting algorithm because it is beset with redundant comparisons. However, efforts have been made to improve the performance of the algorithm. With Bidirectional Bubble Sort, the average number of comparisons is slightly reduced. This paper presents a meta algorithm called Oyelami’s Sort that combines the technique of Bidirectional Bubble Sort with a modified diminishing increment sorting. The results show the comparison between

Experiment Name:Insertion sort Algorithm
Objective:To learn about Insertionsort algorithm,know how it works and use it in real life.
Application: Suppose there exists a function called Insert designed to insert a value into a sorted sequence at the beginning of an array. It operates by beginning at the end of the sequence and shifting each element one place to the right until a suitable position is found for the new element. The function has the side effect of overwriting the value stored immediately after the sorted sequence in the array.To perform an insertionsort, begin at the left-most element of the array and invoke Insert to insert each element encountered into its correct position. The ordered sequence into which the element is inserted is stored at the beginning of the array in the set of indices already examined. Each insertion overwrites a single value: the value being inserted.
Pseudocode:
// The values in A[i] are checked in-order, starting at the second one
for i ← 1 to i ← length(A)
{
// at the start of the iteration, A[0..i-1] are in sorted order
// this iteration will insert A[i] into that sorted order
// save A[i], the value that will be inserted into the array on this iteration
valueToInsert ← A[i]
// now mark position i as the hole; A[i]=A[holePos] is now empty
holePos ← i
// keep moving the hole down until the valueToInsert is...

External Sorting Algorithms
Internal vs External Sorts
Internal Sort – sorting items entirely in main memory ICS 2, ICS 3, CS 101 External Sort – sorting files in secondary storage using main memory CS 102 Why external sort ?
Some files may be too large to fit in main memory
Some Terminologies
A Pass – an iteration that goes through the items (or records) of a list (or file) once to include reading it from file, processing it in main memory and writing it to file. A Run – a grouping of some items of a list. Usually a run starts as a block of records but eventually increases in size. Size of a Run – the number of items in a run. Usually no less than the blocking factor. A Merge – combining lists into one

OBJECTIVE:
The objective of the lab session is to write an assembly level language program to sort an array of decimal numbers in ascending order.
EQUIPMENTS AND SOFTWARE PACKAGES:
PC, PCB with HCS12 Microcontroller and MINI IDE software.
THEORY:
HCS12 microcontroller is an 8bit microcontroller, manufactured by Free scale Semiconductors. It has three 8bit registers (A, B, CCR) and four 16bit pointers(X, Y, SP, PC).
A bubble sort algorithm loops through a set of data items. Comparing items and switching them if they are in the wrong order. This process is repeated until the list is sorted. It is called a bubble sort because the smaller items “bubble up” towards the top of the list.
PROCEDURE:
1. Open the mini IDE software.
2. Type the ALP in the mini IDE text editor or in the Note pad and Load the ALP.
3. Turn on the board by connecting +5v power supply and ground terminal.
4. Build the Program using build option and check for any errors (correct if any) (this step generates a source file with extension .s19).
5. Now load the program using the Load instruction and download option available in the dropdown menu in terminal command.
6. Now verify the result by noting the values in different...

...Discussion: Coded by a polymorphic gene, Alu insertion is found within an intron of the tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), which is lacking in ancient DNA sequences (Batzer et al, 1994). In this experiment, the lining of cheek cells of 105 individuals were tested for the presence/absence of Alu insertion titled tPA-25 by using PCR amplification. Using oligonucleotide primers to border around a tPA-25 insertion site, PCR products were amplified for 400bp fragments which were positive for Alu and 100bp fragments which were absent. The observed genotypes expressed in Table 1 (Appendix A) contain 17 individuals of 400bp fragment, 27 individuals of 100bp fragment, and 61 individuals of both from a party of 105. These observed values were detected using an Orange G dye running through an agarose gel. With these results, the allele frequency was determined at 0.4524 for tPA-25 present (+) and 0.5476 for tPA-25 absent (-) (Allele frequency calculation, Appendix B). Furthermore, the computed value for the chi-squared test revealed that the alleles coding for tPA(+) and tPA(-) insertion are in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium as the null hypothesis could not be rejected (Chi-squared test, Appendix A).
For something to be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium five conditions must be met: random mating, no mutations, no migration, infinite size/population and no sexual/natural selection. Since the equilibrium is met in this experiment, it...

...Analysis of Amplification of Alu insertion polymorphism by PCR
Introduction
Alu elements have been accumulated in human genome throught mankind evolution, reaching over 1 million copies in genome. They are short, and repetitive DNA fragments found in primates. Each Alu element is known to have 300 base pairs in length. DNA repeats contribute to partial gene deletion or duplications in many cases of hereditary diseases.Alu insertion polymorphisms consists of absence or presence of Alu elements at a particular chromosomal location.(Novick et al,1993) They are typed by rapid PCR , which are stable polymorphisms. Newly inserted Alu elements rarely ever go trough deletion.(Stonekening, 1997)The presence of Alu element represent probability that different Alu elements would independently insert into the exact same chromosomal location is negligible. The theory of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium gives the gene frequencies (proportions of all possible alleles at a given locus)of a given population in absence of evolution.For it to be present within a population,conditions must be met.No net mutations,No difference found in alllele selection, no movement of indivduals into or out of population.(Novick et al, 1993)Population must be infinitely large and mating must be comletely at random.I hypothesize that our class results wont be in equilibrium in regards to the abundance of TPA-25 element.(Stonekening, 1997) There are 2 alleles in this locus.The +...
