An applet for comparing sorting algorithms


And since this is a post about sorting, take a look at this:
''Humans have a natural tendency to find order in sets of information, a skill that has proven difficult to replicate in computers.
"Instead of looking for a particular kind of structure, we came up with a broader algorithm that is able to look for all of these structures and weigh them against each other," said Josh Tenenbaum, an associate professor of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT and senior author of the paper.''

And: ''MIT associate professor Josh Tenenbaum and his former student, Charles Kemp, have developed a computer algorithm that can select the best type of structure to fit a set of data.''

And here are some articles from J. Tenenbaum: [articles].
