public class Sorting extends PersistentObject
This is another case demonstrating one primary goal of this library: Delivering easy to use, yet very efficient APIs. The sorts return convenient sort views. This enables the usage of algorithms which scale well with the problem size: For example, sorting a 1000000 x 10000 or a 1000000 x 100 x 100 matrix performs just as fast as sorting a 1000000 x 1 matrix. This is so, because internally the algorithms only move around integer indexes, they do not physically move around entire rows or slices. The original matrix is left unaffected.
The quicksort is a derivative of the JDK 1.2 V1.26 algorithms (which are, in turn, based on Bentley's and McIlroy's fine work). The mergesort is a derivative of the JAL algorithms, with optimisations taken from the JDK algorithms. Mergesort is stable (by definition), while quicksort is not. A stable sort is, for example, helpful, if matrices are sorted successively by multiple columns. It preserves the relative position of equal elements.

DoubleMatrix1D 
sort(DoubleMatrix1D vector)
Sorts the vector into ascending order, according to the natural ordering.

DoubleMatrix1D 
sort(DoubleMatrix1D vector,
DoubleComparator c)
Sorts the vector into ascending order, according to the order induced by the specified comparator.

DoubleMatrix2D 
sort(DoubleMatrix2D matrix,
double[] aggregates)
Sorts the matrix rows into ascending order, according to the natural ordering of the matrix values in the virtual column aggregates;
Particularly efficient when comparing expensive aggregates, because aggregates need not be recomputed time and again, as is the case for comparator based sorts.

DoubleMatrix2D 
sort(DoubleMatrix2D matrix,
DoubleMatrix1DComparator c)
Sorts the matrix rows according to the order induced by the specified comparator.

DoubleMatrix2D 
sort(DoubleMatrix2D matrix,
int column)
Sorts the matrix rows into ascending order, according to the natural ordering of the matrix values in the given column.

DoubleMatrix3D 
sort(DoubleMatrix3D matrix,
DoubleMatrix2DComparator c)
Sorts the matrix slices according to the order induced by the specified comparator.

DoubleMatrix3D 
sort(DoubleMatrix3D matrix,
int row,
int column)
Sorts the matrix slices into ascending order, according to the natural ordering of the matrix values in the given [row,column] position.

 the comparator to determine the order.public DoubleMatrix2D sort(DoubleMatrix2D matrix, double[] aggregates)
The returned view is backed by this matrix, so changes in the returned view are reflected in this matrix, and viceversa. To sort ranges use subranging views. To sort columns by rows, use dice views. To sort descending, use flip views ...
Example: Each aggregate is the sum of a row
4 x 2 matrix: 1, 1 5, 4 3, 0 4, 4 
aggregates= 2 9 3 8 ==> 
4 x 2 matrix: 
// sort 10000 x 1000 matrix by sum of logarithms in a row (i.e. by geometric mean) DoubleMatrix2D matrix = new DenseDoubleMatrix2D(10000,1000); matrix.assign(new cern.jet.random.engine.MersenneTwister()); // initialized randomly cern.jet.math.Functions F = cern.jet.math.Functions.functions; // alias for convenience // THE QUICK VERSION (takes some 3 secs) // aggregates[i] = Sum(log(row)); double[] aggregates = new double[matrix.rows()]; for (int i = matrix.rows(); i >= 0; ) aggregates[i] = matrix.viewRow(i).aggregate(F.plus, F.log); DoubleMatrix2D sorted = quickSort(matrix,aggregates); // THE SLOW VERSION (takes some 90 secs) DoubleMatrix1DComparator comparator = new DoubleMatrix1DComparator() { public int compare(DoubleMatrix1D x, DoubleMatrix1D y) { double a = x.aggregate(F.plus,F.log); double b = y.aggregate(F.plus,F.log); return a < b ? 1 : a==b ? 0 : 1; } }; DoubleMatrix2D sorted = quickSort(matrix,comparator);

The algorithm compares two 2d slices at a time, determinining whether one is smaller, equal or larger than the other. Comparison is based on the cell [row,column] within a slice. Let A and B be two 2d slices. Then we have the following rules
