## Data Structures and Other Objects Using JavaThis text uses a five-step method for working with data types, to ensure students have a thorough knowledge of the subject and understand the data type abstractly. It also aims to teach students how to use the data type, design and implement it, and analyze the implementation. |

So the worst-case running time for

**quicksort**is quadratic. Despite a poor worst-case time,

**quicksort**generally is quite good. In fact, the average time (which wewon't develop) turns out to be 0(n log n). This is the same as mergesort, and we ...
