A combination of evolutionary algorithms and statistical techniques is used to analyze the worst-case computational complexity of two sorting algorithms. It is shown that excellent bounds for these algorithms can be obtained using this approach; this fact raises interesting prospects for applying the approach to other problems and algorithms. Several guidelines for extending this work are included. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
