Yin-So Chen  The heapsort is a very dependable in-place sorting algorithm, with a rate of growth of O (n log n). Though not quite as fast as quicksort, it has no worst-case scenario. 
Insertion Sort
[Added: 9/13/1999]
Yin-So Chen  Insertion sort can run in O (n) in the best case, however its worst case is O (n2). It can, however, be used to optimize the quicksort, and is therefore worth learning. 
[Added: 9/13/1999]
Yin-So Chen  The quicksort is the fastest known comparison-based sorting algorithm, with a growth rate of O (n log n) on average. However, in the worst case, this degrades to O (n2), but this can be mostly avoided if implemented carefully. 
Radix Sort
[Added: 9/13/1999]
Yin-So Chen  The radix sort is not as versatile as some others, but it runs in linear - O (n) - time. 
Shell Sort
[Added: 9/13/1999]
Yin-So Chen  Shell sort modifies the insertion sort algorithm and avoids its worst-case behavior.
