Tutor description

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 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.FeaturesWhat 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 bubble sorts. It provides only marginal performance improvements, and does not improve asymptotic performance; like the bubble sort, it is not of practical interest (insertion sort is preferred for simple sorts), though it finds some use in education.Other
