Our research paper aims at sorting. Sorting is any process of arranging items according to a certain sequence or in different sets. It is a term that is used to sort the data in ascending or descending order. In this paper, we will discuss about internal and external sorting, and also about some terminologies in this, like: insertion sort, merge sort, quick short, heap short, bubble sort, radix sort and selection sort. We will also discuss about the simple sort, shell sort, comb sort and distribution sort. A comparison of algorithms is also provided in brief detail.
