Sorting Algorithm : Insertion Sort

From this two video I tried to re learn and implement the algorithm with pseudo code.


Implemented Code in C:

Here ary[] means array 🙂

Simple Implementation of Insertion Sorting(Idea Sanfoundry):

It is helpful:

Time complexity of Insertion Sort:

  • Worst case complexity : O(n^2)
  • Best case complexity :    O(n)
  • Average case complextiy:  O(n^2)Reference:

How to calculate complexity there is a example available at the upper video “Lecture 7”

and there are some links

Here a good presentation about this sorting


For descending order I took help from:
Here they change the comparison value for descending at while loop condition

Another good website:

Time complexity of insertion sort when there are O(n) inversions?

For some theory revise this video is good:
