Practical InPlace Mergesort
, 1996
"... Two inplace variants of the classical mergesort algorithm are analysed in detail. The first, straightforward variant performs at most N log 2 N + O(N ) comparisons and 3N log 2 N + O(N ) moves to sort N elements. The second, more advanced variant requires at most N log 2 N + O(N ) comparisons and " ..."

Two inplace variants of the classical mergesort algorithm are analysed in detail. The first, straightforward variant performs at most N log 2 N + O(N ) comparisons and 3N log 2 N + O(N ) moves to sort N elements. The second, more advanced variant requires at most N log 2 N + O(N ) comparisons and "N log 2 N moves, for any fixed " ? 0 and any N ? N ("). In theory, the second one is superior to advanced versions of heapsort. In practice, due to the overhead in the index manipulation, our fastest inplace mergesort behaves still about 50 per cent slower than the bottomup heapsort. However, our implementations are practical compared to mergesort algorithms based on inplace merging. Key words: sorting, mergesort, inplace algorithms CR Classification: F.2.2 1.
An InPlace Sorting with O(n log n) Comparisons and O(n) Moves
 In Proc. 44th Annual IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science

"... Abstract. We present the first inplace algorithm for sorting an array of size n that performs, in the worst case, at most O(n log n) element comparisons and O(n) element transports. This solves a longstanding open problem, stated explicitly, e.g., in [J.I. Munro and V. Raman, Sorting with minimum ..."

Abstract. We present the first inplace algorithm for sorting an array of size n that performs, in the worst case, at most O(n log n) element comparisons and O(n) element transports. This solves a longstanding open problem, stated explicitly, e.g., in [J.I. Munro and V. Raman, Sorting with minimum data movement, J. Algorithms, 13, 374–93, 1992], of whether there exists a sorting algorithm that matches the asymptotic lower bounds on all computational resources simultaneously.

this paper we study, both analytically and experimentally, the performance of programs that construct a binary heap [Williams 1964] in a hierarchical memory system. Especially, we consider the largest memory level that is too small to fit the whole heap. We call that particular level simply the cache. It should, however, be emphasized that our analysis is valid for the memory levels below this cache as well, provided that all our assumptions are fulfilled. We let B denote the size of the blocks transferred between the cache and the memory level above it, and M the capacity of the cache, both measured in elements being manipulated.
The Ultimate Heapsort

. A variant of Heapsortnamed Ultimate Heapsortis presented that sorts n elements inplace in \Theta(n log 2 (n+ 1)) worstcase time by performing at most n log 2 n + \Theta(n) key comparisons and n log 2 n + \Theta(n) element moves. The secret behind Ultimate Heapsort is that it occasionally transforms the heap it operates with to a twolayer heap which keeps small elements at the leaves. Basically, Ultimate Heapsort is like BottomUp Heapsort but, due to the twolayer heap property, an element taken from a leaf has to be moved towards the root only O(1) levels, on an average. Let a[1::n] be an array of n elements each consisting of a key and some information associated with this key. This array is a (maximum) heap if, for all i 2 f2; : : : ; ng, the key of element a[bi=2c] is larger than or equal to that of element a[i]. That is, a heap is a pointerfree representation of a left complete binary tree, where the elements stored are partially ordered according to their keys. Ele...
Multiway Blockwise Inplace Merging

Given an array A containing sorted subsequences A1,..., Ak of respective lengths n1,..., nk, where ∑k ni = n, we assume i=1 that extra k·s elements (so called buffer elements) are positioned at the ve ..."

Abstract. We present an algorithm for asymptotically efficient multiway blockwise inplace merging. Given an array A containing sorted subsequences A1,..., Ak of respective lengths n1,..., nk, where ∑k ni = n, we assume i=1 that extra k·s elements (so called buffer elements) are positioned at the very end of array A, and that the lengths n1,..., nk are positive integer multiples of some parameter s (i.e., multiples of a given block of length s). The number of input sequences k is a fixed constant parameter, not dependent on the lengths of input sequences. Then our algorithm merges the subsequences A1,..., Ak into a single sorted sequence, performing Θ(log k·n) + O((n/s) 2) + O(s· log s) element comparisons and 3·n + O(s·log s) element moves. 1 Then, for s = ⌈n 2/3 /(log n) 1/3 ⌉, this gives an algorithm performing Θ(log k·n) + O((n·log n) 2/3) comparisons and 3·n + O((n·log n) 2/3) moves. That is, our algorithm runs in linear time, with an asymptotically optimal number of comparisons and with the number of moves independent on the number of input sequences. Moreover, our algorithm is “almost inplace”, it requires only k extra blocks of size s = o(n). 1
