This is embarassing/inelegant. Consider writing
container_algorithms::sort(.....), and repeating that prefix in everywhere....
OTOH, provided there's no "using namespace std" somewhere, you can say
"using namespace container_algorithms" and enjoy. I'm not sure....

In this case, directly passing vector to an algorithm is very inefficient.
