An analog circuit is devised which selects and outputs the kth largest element among n input voltages. The circuit is composed of n basic transconductance amplifiers connected mutually with an O(n) length wire, thus the complexity of the circuit is O(n). The circuit becomes particularly simple for the case of the selection of the median of inputs.
