Selection Sorting Algorithm
Algorithms are one of those critical topics in programming that every programmer must know this concept as an initial knowledge.
In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a finite sequence of well-defined, computer-implementable instructions, typically to solve a class of specific problems or to perform a computation [2, 3]. On the other hand, the algorithm is a way of solving the program or problem.
There are many types of sorting algorithms in Python :
- Merge sort
- Selection sort
- Bubble sort
- Insertion sort
- Heap sort
- Quick sort
In this story, I want to expand the Selection-Sorting algorithm. This algorithm is the most common algorithm in python built-in functions.
This algorithm segments the list into two parts: sorted and unsorted. We continuously remove the smallest element of the unsorted segment of the list and append it to the sorted segment .
In the end, you can see the complete source code of the selection-sorting algorithm in the python programming language:
The output will be:
Input array : [64, 25, 64, 12, 24, 22, 11]
Sorted array : [11, 12, 22, 24, 25, 64, 64]
