I've got an implementation of the merge sort in C++ using a custom doubly linked list. I'm coming up with a big O complexity of n^2, based on the
slice operation. But, from what I've read, this algorithm should be
n*log(n), where the log has a base of two.
Can someone help me determine if I'm just determining the complexity incorrectly, or if the implementation can/should be improved to achieve
If you would like some background on my goals for this project, see my blog. I've added comments in the code outlining what I understand the complexity of each method to be.
Clarification - I'm focusing on the C++ implementation with this question. I've got another implementation written in Python, but that was something that was added in addition to my original goal(s).
