# Heap Sort Example Java Program

## Definition

Heapsort is a comparison-based sorting algorithm. Heapsort can be thought of as an improved selection sort: like that algorithm, it divides its input into a sorted and an unsorted region, and it iteratively shrinks the unsorted region by extracting the largest element and moving that to the sorted region. The improvement consists of the use of a heap data structure rather than a linear-time search to find the maximum.

## Heap Sort Example Program

```import java.util.Scanner;

public class HeapSort{
private static int N;
public static void sort(int arr[]){
heapMethod(arr);
for (int i = N; i > 0; i--){
swap(arr,0, i);
N = N-1;
heap(arr, 0);
}
}
public static void heapMethod(int arr[]){
N = arr.length-1;
for (int i = N/2; i >= 0; i--)
heap(arr, i);
}
public static void heap(int arr[], int i){
int left = 2*i ;
int right = 2*i + 1;
int max = i;
if (left <= N && arr[left] > arr[i])
max = left;
if (right <= N && arr[right] > arr[max])
max = right;
if (max != i){
swap(arr, i, max);
heap(arr, max);
}
}
public static void swap(int arr[], int i, int j){
int tmp = arr[i];
arr[i] = arr[j];
arr[j] = tmp;
}
public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner in = new Scanner( System.in );
int n;
System.out.println("Enter the number of elements to be sorted:");
n = in.nextInt();
int arr[] = new int[ n ];
System.out.println("Enter "+ n +" integer elements");
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
arr[i] = in.nextInt();
sort(arr);
System.out.println("After sorting ");
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
System.out.println(arr[i]+" ");
System.out.println();
}
}
```

## Sample Output

```Output is:
Enter the number of elements to be sorted:
6
Enter 6 integer elements
99
54
67
32
1
78
After sorting
1
32
54
67
78
99```
