Abstract

We develop, present, and analyze a simple, new 2-approximation algorithm for block sorting in which we use a newly introduced combinatorial structure called an ordered pair. Our algorithm achieves the best known approximation ratio of 2, the tightest known upper bound in terms of the number of block moves needed for block sorting.
