Published inNerd For Tech·3 days agoFloyd’s Cycle Finding AlgorithmFloyd’s cycle-finding algorithm is famous for detecting if a linked list contains a cycle. This algorithm is also referred to as the Hare-Tortoise algorithm because of the use of a slow and fast pointer. How it Works The algorithm starts with two pointers set to the head of a linked…Computer Science4 min readComputer Science4 min read

Published inNerd For Tech·Jun 26, 2022Bubble SortBubble sort is a sorting algorithm that repeatedly goes through an array and swaps adjacent elements if they are not in order. The algorithm is repeated until the list is sorted. Example Sort the given array {3, 2, 5, 1, 4}.Computer Science5 min readComputer Science5 min read

Published inNerd For Tech·Jun 25, 2022Binary SearchA binary search is an algorithm that finds a given target in a sorted array. The binary search algorithm compares the target to the middle element of the array. Assuming the target is not the middle element you will compare whether the target is larger or smaller than the middle…Computer Science4 min readComputer Science4 min read
