Description

Dijkstra’s algorithm, conceived by Dutch computer scientist Edsger Dijkstra in 1956. It is a graph search algorithm that solves the shortest path problem for a graph with non-negative edge path costs, producing a shortest path from a starting vertex to an ending vertex. This implementation can be used with a directed graph and an undirected graph.

  • Process is done only on edges with positive costs.

    • A negative value on a cost column is interpreted as the edge does not exist.

  • Values are returned when there is a path.

  • When there is no path:

    • When the starting vertex and ending vertex are the same.

      • The aggregate cost of the non included values \((v, v)\) is \(0\)

    • When the starting vertex and ending vertex are the different and there is no path:

      • The aggregate cost the non included values \((u, v)\) is \(\infty\)

  • For optimization purposes, any duplicated value in the starting vertices or on the ending vertices are ignored.

  • Running time: \(O(| start\ vids | * (V \log V + E))\)

  • Running time: \(O(| start\_vids | * (V \log V + E))\)
