Finding the right data we need is an age-old problem before computers. As developers, we create many search algorithms to retrieve data efficiently.
Search algorithms can be divided into two broad categories: sequential and interval searches. Sequential searches check each element in a data structure. Interval searches check various points of the data (called intervals), reducing the time it takes to find an item, given a sorted dataset.
In this article, you will cover Jump Search in Python - a hybrid combination of sequential search and interval search on sorted arrays.
