Program for Quick Sort in C++

Here you will get program for quick sort in C++.

Quick Sort is one of the most efficient sorting algorithm whose best, worst and average case time complexities are O (n log n), O (n2) and O (n log n) respectively.

 How it works?

1. We first pick a pivot element. There are various ways to pick a pivot element.

  • Pick first element
  • Pick last element
  • Pick a random element
  • Pick median element

So we can use anyone of above methods to pick the pivot element. In the program given below I have picked first element as pivot.

2. Now all the elements smaller than pivot are placed at its left while elements bigger are placed at right.

3. Repeat the above two steps recursively for both half.

Below is the program to implement this algorithm in C++.
