Mergesort

Merge sort is an O(n log n) worst-case comparison-based stable sorting algorithm.

Mergesort is from question Optimal Quicksort for Single Linked List |

That s hard to say.the worst of mergesort is n log2n -n+1 which is accurate if n equals 2 k i have already proved this .and for any n it s between n lg n - n + 1 and n lg n + n + o lg n .but for quicksort its best is nlog2n also n equals 2 k .if you divide mergesort by quicksort it equals one when n is infinite.so it s as if the worst case of mergesort is from question Why is quicksort better than mergesort?
