Lect 24: Dijkstra’s Algorithm

In today’s lecture started talking about the shortest path problem and then we sort of “derived” Dijkstra’s algorithm. Next lecture, we will prove the correctness of the algorithm and do its run time analysis. All this material is from Section 4.4 in the textbook.

The slides and notes have been uploaded.

Here is a link to the archived webpage of Dijkstra, where the article appear as “EWD”s. I mis-spoke a bit in class: his articles where not always hand written but they started in the 70s I think. For more information check out his Wikipedia page.
