Please submit each problem separately, i.e. each problem should begin on a new page and only the
pages for one problem should be stapled together. Failure to do so might result in some problem(s)
not being graded.

In class I mentioned that Dijkstra’s algorithm does not work when the edge lengths can be
negative. Show this is possible in the strongest possible sense by giving an example that
exhibits this. In particular, come up with an example of a directed graph (with
no
directed
cycles) along with edge lengths (
exactly
one of which is negative) and two nodes

the graph such that when Dijkstra’s algorithm is run on the graph, it does not output the
