Parallel Sorting Algorithm
We developped a novel adaptive sorting algorithm, called PaVO, relying on a Packed Mermory Array data structure. Maintaining gaps in the array of elements enable to reduce the span of modifications needed when reordering elements. This is particularly relevant in a parallel context to reduce the data dependencies. Performance results on a NUMA architecute show that PaVo outperfoms standard parallel sorting algorithms even for a large amount of disorder.
