Radix sort in Design and analysis of algorithms free pdf
Radix sort solves the problem of card sorting counterintuitively by sorting on the least significant digit first. The cards are then combined into a single deck, with the cards in the 0 bin preceding the cards in the 1 bin preceding the cards in the 2 bin, and so on. Then the entire deck is sorted again on the second-least significant digit and recombined in a like manner. The process continues until the cards have been sorted on all d digits.
