Lecture C6: Graphs Response to 'Muddiest Part of the Lecture Cards' (8 respondents) 1) Could the graphs be analogous to Markov chains and then would the weights be analogous to the transitions probabilities ? The Markov chain can be represented as an infinite graph, with probabilities on the transitions instead of weights. 2) Could the shortest path problem also be approached with Markov chains? Maybe for systems with more uncertain weights? Or for systems where future weights are unknowns but estimates exist ? Yes you can. 3) Can you find the shortest path (or least costly) using the adjacent matrix ? Yes, there exists many different kind of algorithms to solve the shortest path problem in graphs. It is common that the algorithms take an NxN adjacency matrix as input and calculates an NxN matrix S, where S i,j is the length of the shortest path from v i to v j , or a special value, e.g., ‘ ’ if there is not path. 4) What is an example of a graph with negative weights ?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
