Insertion Sort

Algorithm

  • For every element in the list, pick the element and place it at its corresponding position, either before or after the previous element.

Performance

  • Worst case: $O(n^{2})$ comparisons and swaps
  • Best case: $O(n)$ comparisons, $O(1)$ swaps
  • Average case: $O(n^{2})$ comparisons and swaps
  • Space complexity: $O(n)$ total or $O(1)$ auxiliary
