Search in a nearly sorted array in O(logn) time

Given a nearly sorted array such that each of the N elements may be misplaced by no more than one position from the correct sorted order, efficiently search a given element in it. Report if the element is not present in the input array.   An element at index i in correct sorted order can …

Exponential search

Given a sorted array of integers and a target value, find out if a target exists in the array or not in O(log(n)) time. If target exists in the array, print index of it.

Interpolation search

Given a sorted array of integers and a target, find out if a target exists in the array or not. If target exists in the array, print index of it.
