Expert's answer

A sorting algorithm is an algorithmthat puts elements of a list in a certain order. The most-used orders are

numerical order and lexicographical order. Efficient sorting is important for

optimizing the use of other algorithms (such as search and merge algorithms)

which require input data to be in sorted lists.
