Insertion, Bubble, Merge and Quick Sort Algorithms

In computer science, sorting algorithms are used to sort the elements of a data sets in numerical or alphabetical order. In this blog post will investigate the Python code used to implement 4 of the most frequently used sorting algorithms:

  • Insertion Sort
  • Bubble Sort
  • Merge Sort
  • Quick Sort

We will implement the first two algorithm using nested loops. (Iterative algorithms) whereas the Merge sort and Quick sort algorithms will be based on using recursive functions to implement the divide-and-conquer approach these algorithms are based on.
