Show that there is no comparison sort whose running time is linear for at least half of the $n!$ inputs of length $n$.What about a fraction of $1/n$ inputs of length $n$? What about a fraction $1/2^n$?

Suppose that you are given a sequence of $n$ elements to sort.The input sequence consists of $n/k$ subsequences, each containing $k$ elements.The elements in a given subsequence are all smaller than the elements in the succeeding subsequence and larger than the ... this variant of the sorting problem. (Hint: It is not rigorous to simply combine the lower bounds for the individual subsequences.)

Obtain asymptotically tight bounds on $lg\ (n!)$ without using Stirling’s approximation. Instead, evaluate the summation $\sum_{k=1}^{n} lg\ k$.
