1. Q U I C K S O R T I S C O O L partition element unpartitioned left partitioned right Partitioning in Quicksort • How do we partition in-place efficiently? • Partition element = rightmost element. • Scan from left for larger element. • Scan from right for smaller element. • Exchange. • Repeat until pointers cross.
