Lect 26: Shortest Path Problem

In today’s lecture, we studied Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm and proved its correctness. The slides have been uploaded.

For more information on Dijkstra, check out his wikipedia page. For more on his “EWD” manuscripts, check out the UT Austin page.

Next lecture, we will quickly wrap up the run time analysis of Dijkstra’s algorithm and then move on to the Minimum Spanning Tree problem (Sec 4.5 in the book).

Below are links to the student blog posts for the lecture:
