# Why there's no quicksort and mergesort as a hybrid-sorting algorithm? Is it not possible?

From my perception and experience, Lomuto's is slower than Hoare's, and quicksort that uses it's median as the pivot seems faster. The best case of it is the same as mergesort's average case which the array recursively evenly divided by 2. I tried to make my own hybrid-sorting algorithm that combines the concept of quicksort by median and mergesort since I never found one. I'm not questioning the code, my question is, is it not actually possible to combine quick and merge sort? Edit: Thanks to Schindlabua, I just realized my question is not detailed enough. The quicksort that I'm imagine is where you take the middle index as the pivot. From 0 to m, increment until it gets a number higher than the pivot, decrement until it gets a number lower than the pivot from n-1 to m. After that, swap them, and then recursively split them into 2 subarrays, do the same thing again and so on.
