I've been working on an interesting sorting algorithm that is efficient for an array of problems. I wrote up a paper on my findings and it has turned into about 5 pages. I've researched pretty thoroughly and there aren't any papers that use the method I have found or solve the problem I was working on as efficiently. I'm curious if there is an easy place to publish work. I got my undergrad in statistics and never did research so I don't really know how the process works. Just checking to see if y'all have any recommendations.

    I would advice you to prepare your report for conferences such as FOCS, SODA. These are top conferences in the field. Just read a few previously published paper from the same conferences. However, you may talk to one of your professors who might show some interests in the findings.

it is at least somewhat common to find a collaborator with more publishing experience, who can help with the process. i would encourage that because personal conversations are a much higher bandwidth connection than Q&A on this site.

if you are intent on getting your work out there alone, you'll choose to target some point on the spectrum from likely rejection at a high-impact journal to certain acceptance at an unimportant conference. a journal that has already published related work is a good option. read their web site, look at their document norms and submission process for an idea what would be involved in getting a yes or no answer. (if it's a no, of course, you get to start over, somewhat wiser.)
