Quicksort: Four Semesters of Computer Science in 5 Hours

Quicksort is one of the most useful and powerful sorting algorithms. Like merge sort, quicksort uses recursion to divide and conquer. The last element in the list is used as the “pivot." Everything smaller than the pivot is placed in a “left” list. Larger values are placed in a “right” list. Quicksort is then performed again on the left and right lists.
