"You can take a look at timsort which for non completely random data performs from question How to optimize quicksort |

"It is faster than mergesort but it still slower than quicksort because quicksort has fewer data movements on random data quicksort requires o log n extra space while timsort from question Why is Collections.sort() much slower than Arrays.sort()? |

Others

Example |
---|

Introsort and timsort have both an o nlogn complexity in average and on worst cases which makes introsort and timsort from question Most effective way of sorting arrya |

Java s array .sort is from about java 6 actually timsort the fastest general purpose #sort out there much from question Fast sort by date of huge file ArrayList I ve read that timsort is from question Why does .Net use Quicksort instead of Timsort? |

If that is so you might find that timsort runs from question Efficient way to merge key value lists from character arrays |

If it is true then timsort will always take from question How can Timsort beat the O(n log n) sorting bound in some cases? |
