# Search in Rotated Sorted Array

Suppose a sorted array is rotated at some pivot unknown to you beforehand.

(i.e., 0 1 2 4 5 6 7 might become 4 5 6 7 0 1 2).

You are given a target value to search. If found in the array return its index, otherwise return -1.

You may assume no duplicate exists in the array.

public class Solution {
/**the roated list will be splitted into two parts after the rotate,and both are sorted list */
/*we can use the lsearch, but here we can use the binary search with the attribute of rotated list */
/*when we split the list with middle, there must be one sorted list */

//assume no duplicate exists in the array
public int search(int[] nums, int target) {
if(nums == null || nums.length == 0)
return -1;
int low = 0;
int high = nums.length - 1;
while(low <= high) {
int mid = (low + high);
if(nums[mid] == target)
return mid;

if(nums[mid] > nums[low]) {
if(target >= nums[low] && target < nums[mid])
high = mid - 1;
else
low = mid + 1;
}
else {
if(target > nums[mid] && target <= nums[high])
low = mid + 1;
else
high = mid - 1;
}
}

return -1;
}
}
