Merge Sort

[wpdm_package id=’1181′]

A merge sort is based on the classic divide and conquer paradigm.

Steps:

1. Divide: Partition the n-element sequence to be sorted into two sets of n/2 elements each.

2. Conquer: Sort the two sets recursively using the merge sort.

3. Combine: Merge the two sorted sorted sets of size n/2 each to produce the sorted sequence consisting of n elements.

For example,
