Sorting Network Picture
Why is th esorting network picture the same on all sorting sites? This does not make sense, as I actually thought it would depict the curretn sorting algorithm. I think it should be removed from the template. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 09:19, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
- Looks like a mistake to me. Whether it's an exchange sort depends on how you do the random permutation part, but that's a reasonable enough place to leave it. —David Eppstein (talk) 17:51, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
Create category page?
While search algorithms have a category page , sorting algorithms have a template listing all entries. Maybe a category page for this template, or a template for all searching algorithms should be made... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:46, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Aren't Heap Sort and Smooth Sort of the Exchange category?
According to the paper by Dijkstra, smoothsort is of the exchange category. Right now I see smoothsort and heap sort in the selection category.
