Someone should add the runtime complexity of the algorithm to find matches so I know if it's worth looking up the paper.

Runtime complexity now appears, together with a descriprion of the algorithm and an example of its execution. RobWIrving (talk) 12:55, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Error in the example[edit]

The text explains how in Phase 2, a chain of odd length means that there is no stable pairing. On the other hand, the example ends with a stable pairing after some rotations, one of them of length 3. It's easy to check that that chain is not correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Davidsevilla (talkcontribs) 15:10, 29 June 2011 (UTC)


What is O(n^2)? It is written like it's common knowledge, however I'm pretty certain it's not. IMO encyclopædia should not assume previous knowledge. At least there should be a link an explanatory page. --Kebman (talk) 20:39, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
