**Stable Sort:** A sorting algorithm is said to be stable if two objects with equal keys appear in the same order in sorted output as they appear in the input unsorted array. Some sorting algorithms are stable by nature like Insertion sort, Merge Sort, Bubble Sort,

**Complete Binary Tree:** A complete binary tree is a binary tree in which every level, except possibly the last, is completely filled, and all nodes are as far left as possible. A Binary Heap is a complete Binary Tree.

Karumanchi is also good for explanation , pg 180-185

// To heapify a subtree rooted with node i which is // an index in arr[]. n is size of heap void heapify(int arr[], int n, int i) { int largest = i; // Initialize largest as root int l = 2*i + 1; // left = 2*i + 1 int r = 2*i + 2; // right = 2*i + 2 // If left child is larger than root if (l < n && arr[l] > arr[largest]) largest = l; // If right child is larger than largest so far if (r < n && arr[r] > arr[largest]) largest = r; // If largest is not root if (largest != i) { swap(arr[i], arr[largest]); // Recursively heapify the affected sub-tree heapify(arr, n, largest); } } // main function to do heap sort void heapSort(int arr[], int n) { // Build heap (rearrange array) for (int i = n / 2 - 1; i >= 0; i--) heapify(arr, n, i); // One by one extract an element from heap for (int i=n-1; i>=0; i--) { // Move current root to end swap(arr[0], arr[i]); // call max heapify on the reduced heap heapify(arr, i, 0); } }
