Question:

Is in place Merge Sort sorting a good strategy to implement when you want to reduce space in memory?

Karina S.
Answer:

Merge Sort requires \Theta ( n ) additional auxiliary space to copy the elements of the array. While In-place Merge Sort does not need extra space in memory (auxiliary space), however runs slower than Merge Sort. In-place merge Sort running time > Merge sort running time ( \Theta n log(n) ) In-place merge Sort run slower due the fact that there are many comparisons involved, and also read and write elements of the original array. Because you needs to read , write and swaps more elements of the original array.
