Selected Solutions for Chapter 24: Single-Source Shortest Paths Solution to Exercise 24.1-3 If the greatest number of edges on any shortest path from the source is m , then the path-relaxation property tells us that after m iterations of BELLMAN-FORD, every vertex ± has achieved its shortest-path weight in ±: d . By the upper-bound property, after m iterations, no d values will ever change. Therefore, no d values will change in the .m C 1/ st iteration. Because we do not know m in advance, we cannot make the algorithm iterate exactly m times and then terminate. But if we just make the algorithm stop when nothing changes any more, it will stop after m C 1 iterations. BELLMAN-FORD-(M+1) .G;w;s/ INITIALIZE-SINGLE-SOURCE .G; s/ changes D TRUE while changes == TRUE changes D FALSE for each edge .u; ±/ 2 G: E RELAX-M .u;±;w/ RELAX-M .u;±; w/ if ±: d > u: d C w.u; ±/ ±: d D u: d C w.u;±/ ±:² D u changes D TRUE The test for a negative-weight cycle (based on there being a d value that would change if another relaxation step was done) has been removed above, because this version of the algorithm will never get out of the while loop unless all d values stop changing. Solution to Exercise 24.3-3 Yes, the algorithm still works. Let u be the leftover vertex that does not get extracted from the priority queue Q . If u is not reachable from s , then
