# Quicksort program using pivot in java

Write a quicksort program using pivot in java. Quicksort is a programming language written in Java. It works by picking a ‘pivot’ element from the array and partitioning the remaining elements into two subarrays based on whether they are  greater or less than the pivot.

`import java.util.Arrays;class Main {int a(int array[], int low, int high){int pivot = array[high];int i = (low - 1);for (int j = low; j < high; j++) {if (array[j] <= pivot){i++;int temp = array[i];array[i] = array[j];array[j] = temp;}}int temp = array[i + 1];array[i + 1] = array[high];array[high] = temp;return (i + 1);}void quickSort(int array[], int low, int high) {if (low < high) {int pi = a(array, low, high);quickSort(array, low, pi - 1);quickSort(array, pi + 1, high);}}public static void main(String args[]) {int[] data = { 56,787,343,456,987,111};int size = data.length;Main qs = new Main();qs.quickSort(data, 0, size - 1);System.out.println("After sorting");System.out.println(Arrays.toString(data));}}`

Output:

# What is Quick Sort in Java

Quicksort is a sorting algorithm that uses the divide-and-conquer concept to sort data. It has an average complexity of O(n log n) and is one of the most popular sorting algorithms, especially for large data sets.

# Why do the Java uses Quick sort

Quick Sort has added cost from the recursive function calls, insertion sort is faster for small n. Insertion sort is also more stable and uses less memory than Quick sort.

# What is the fastest sorting algorithm in java

Quicksort has an O(n logn) time complexity in the best and average case scenarios, and O(n2) in the worst case. Quicksort is often regarded the “fastest” sorting algorithm because it has the upper hand in the average situations for most inputs.

# Which the fastest sorting method in java

Radix sort: 0.220s. Quicksort: 0.247s. Shell sort: 0.250s. Merge sort: 0.435s.

# Insertion sort vs Quick sort in Java programming

Quick Sort has added cost from the recursive function calls, insertion sort is faster for small n. Insertion sort is also more stable and uses less memory than Quick sort.

# What is Advantages of Quick sort in java

It’s in place since it just requires a modest auxiliary stack. Sorting n things takes only n (log n) seconds. The inner loop is extremely short.
