Sorting is a fundamental concept in computer science and is essential for many applications.

This course will teach you through detailed animations how the most important sorting algorithms work and how to implement them in Python. By the end of this course, you will have an excellent understanding of the six popular sorting algorithms: Bubble Sort, Selection Sort, Insertion Sort, Quick Sort, Merge Sort and Heap Sort.

We will start in the first section with an introduction to sorting, the Big O notation, and a rough overview over the master theorem.

For each sorting algorithm, there is a separate section, where we’ll delve into at least two videos.

The first video serves always as an introduction to the underlying algorithm, covering its core concept, the corresponding Python code, and practical examples.

An additional example video is available for Quick Sort, as it can be a challenging algorithm for beginners to understand. By providing a very detailed example, the corresponding video aims to simplify the learning process and help learners gain a better understanding of the connection of Quick Sort and its implementation.

In the second video, we conduct a comprehensive analysis of the algorithm’s properties. This includes mainly examining its stability, whether it performs in-place sorting, as well as its time complexity under various cases such as best, average, and worst-case scenarios.

This course is for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of sorting algorithms and a bit of Python programming. Join this course today and take the first step in becoming an expert in sorting!
