Define Merge Sort

 Merge sort is a perfect example of a successful application of the divide and conquer method. It sorts a given array A[0...n-l] by separating it into two halves A[0...[n/2] - 1] and  A[[n/2]....n-l], sorting each of them recursively, and then merging the two smaller sorted arrays into a single sorted one.
