An upper bound asymptotic to 2n log n is established for the number of comparators required in a network that classifies n values into two classes, each containing n/2 values, with each value in one class less than or equal to each value in the other. (The best lower bound known for this problem is asymptotic to (n/2) log2 n.) Key words, comparator, classifier, expanding graph, random walk AMS(MOS) subject classifications. 68E05, 94C10
