2 Wide Range of Shortest Path Problems Sources and Destinations We will consider single source problems in this lecture Properties of the costs. We will consider non-negative cost coefficients in this lecture Network topology. We will consider all directed graphs
3 Assumptions for the Problem Today Integral, non-negative data There is a directed path from source node s to all other nodes. Objective: find the shortest path from node s to each other node. Applications. Vehicle routing Communication systems

5 Approximating Piecewise Linear Functions INPUT: A piecewise linear function n points a 1 = (x 1 ,y 1 ), a 2 = (x 2 ,y 2 ),. .., a n = (x n ,y n ). x 1 x 2 ... x n . Objective: approximate f with fewer points c* is the “cost” per point included c ij = cost of approximating the function through points a i , a i+1 , . . ., a jj by a single line joining point a i to point a j . Find the minimum cost path from node 1 to node n. Each path from 1 to n corresponds to an approximation of the data points a 1 to a n .

7 A Key Step in Shortest Path Algorithms In this lecture, and in subsequent lectures, we let d( ) denote a vector of temporary distance labels. d(i) is the length of some path from the origin node 1 to node i. Procedure Update(i) for each (i,j) A(i) do if d(j) > d(i) + c ij then d(j) : = d(i) + c ij and pred(j) : = i; Update(i) used in Dijkstra’s algorithm and in the label correcting algorithm
