One of the fundamental issues in Computer Science is the ordering of a list of items - known as sorting. Sorting algorithms such as the Bubble, Insertion and Selection Sort, all have a quadratic time complexity O(N2) that limits their use when the number of elements is very large. This paper presents Use-Me sort. It sorts a list by making the use of already sorted elements present in the list. Moreover, it provides a trade-off between Space and Time Complexity with better performance than the existing sorting algorithms of the O (N2) class.
