This wiki has moved to our forum.

It has its own section there. As a result, it's even easier to edit wiki articles and contribute new ones. Head on over: https://forum.freecodecamp.com/c/wiki This GitHub-based wiki that you're looking is out-of-date. We will soon delete it completely.

Algorithm Bubble Sort

Bubble sort is a simple sorting algorithm. This sorting algorithm is comparison based algorithm in which each pair of adjacent elements is compared and elements are swapped if they are not in order. This algorithm does sorting in-place i.e. it does not creates a new array while carrying out the sorting process.

Example

array = [5, 1, 4, 2, 8]

First Pass:
( 5 1 4 2 8 ) –> ( 1 5 4 2 8 ), Here, algorithm compares the first two elements, and swaps since 5 > 1.
( 1 5 4 2 8 ) –>  ( 1 4 5 2 8 ), Swap since 5 > 4
( 1 4 5 2 8 ) –>  ( 1 4 2 5 8 ), Swap since 5 > 2
( 1 4 2 5 8 ) –> ( 1 4 2 5 8 ), Now, since these elements are already in order (8 > 5), algorithm does not swap them.

Second Pass:
( 1 4 2 5 8 ) –> ( 1 4 2 5 8 )
( 1 4 2 5 8 ) –> ( 1 2 4 5 8 ), Swap since 4 > 2
( 1 2 4 5 8 ) –> ( 1 2 4 5 8 )
( 1 2 4 5 8 ) –>  ( 1 2 4 5 8 )
Now, the array is already sorted, but our algorithm does not know if it is completed. The algorithm needs one whole pass without any
swap to know it is sorted.

Third Pass:
( 1 2 4 5 8 ) –> ( 1 2 4 5 8 )
( 1 2 4 5 8 ) –> ( 1 2 4 5 8 )
( 1 2 4 5 8 ) –> ( 1 2 4 5 8 )
( 1 2 4 5 8 ) –> ( 1 2 4 5 8 )

C++ Implementation

// Function to implement bubble sort
void bubble_sort(int array[], int n)
{
// Here n is the number of elements in array
int temp;

for(int i = 0; i < n-1; i++)
{
// Last i elements are already in place
for(int j = 0; j < n-i-1; j++)
{
if (array[j] > array[j+1])
{
// swap elements at index j and j+1
temp = array[j];
array[j] = array[j+1];
array[j+1] = temp;
}
}
}
}

Python Implementation

def bubble_sort(arr):
exchanges = True # A check to see if the array is already sorted so that no further steps gets executed
i = len(arr)-1
while i > 0 and exchanges:
exchanges = False
for j in range(i):
if arr[j]>arr[j+1]:
exchanges = True
arr[j], arr[j+1] = arr[j+1], arr[j]
i -= 1

arr = [5,3,23,1,43,2,54]
bubble_sort(arr)
print(arr) # Prints [1, 2, 3, 5, 23, 43, 54]

Complexity of Algorithm

https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/freeCodeCamp/wiki/Algorithms-Bubble-Sort
Worst and Average Case Time Complexity: O(n*n). Worst case occurs when array is reverse sorted i.e. the elements are in decreasing order
Best Case Time Complexity: O(n). Best case occurs when array is already sorted.
