Abstract: Sorting is an essential conceptin the study of data structures. There are many sorting algorithms that can sort elements in a given array or list. Counting sort is a sorting algorithm that has the best time complexity. However, the counting sort algorithm only works for positive integers. In this paper, an extension of the counting sort algorithm is proposed that can sort real numbers and integers (both positive and negative).
Keywords: Counting Sort, Sorting, Algorithm.
