Abstract. We present a new scheme for computing shortest paths on realweighted undirected graphs in the fundamental comparisonaddition model. In an efficient preprocessing phase our algorithm creates a linearsize structure that facilitates singlesource shortest path computations in O(m log α) time, where α = α(m, n) is the very slowly growing inverseAckermann function, m the number of edges, and n the number of vertices. As special cases our algorithm implies new bounds on both the allpairs and singlesource shortest paths problems. We solve the allpairs problem in O(mnlog α(m, n)) time and, if the ratio between the maximum and minimum edge lengths is bounded by n (log n)O(1) , we can solve the singlesource problem in O(m + nlog log n) time. Both these results are theoretical improvements over Dijkstra’s algorithm, which was the previous best for real weighted undirected graphs. Our algorithm takes the hierarchybased approach invented by Thorup. Key words. singlesource shortest paths, allpairs shortest paths, undirected graphs, Dijkstra’s

We evaluate the practical eciency of a new shortest path algorithm for undirected graphs which was developed by the rst two authors. This algorithm works on the fundamental comparisonaddition model. Theoretically, this new algorithm outperforms Dijkstra's algorithm on sparse graphs for the allpairs shortest path problem, and more generally, for the problem of computing singlesource shortest paths from !(1) different sources. Our extensive experimental analysis demonstrates that this is also the case in practice. We present results which show the new algorithm to run faster than Dijkstra's on a variety of sparse graphs when the number of vertices ranges from a few thousand to a few million, and when computing singlesource shortest paths from as few as three different sources.

We show how to compute singlesource shortest paths in undirected graphs with nonnegative edge lengths in O ( p nm/B log n + MST (n, m)) I/Os, where n is the number of vertices, m is the number of edges, B is the disk block size, and MST (n, m) is the I/Ocost of computing a minimum spann ..."

Abstract. We show how to compute singlesource shortest paths in undirected graphs with nonnegative edge lengths in O ( p nm/B log n + MST (n, m)) I/Os, where n is the number of vertices, m is the number of edges, B is the disk block size, and MST (n, m) is the I/Ocost of computing a minimum spanning tree. For sparse graphs, the new algorithm performs O((n / √ B) log n) I/Os. This result removes our previous algorithm’s dependence on the edge lengths in the graph. 1

We present an allpairs shortest path algorithm for arbitrary graphs that performs O(mn log (m; n)) comparison and addition operations, where m and n are the number of edges and vertices, resp., and is Tarjan's inverseAckermann function. Our algorithm eliminates the sorting bottleneck inherent in approaches based on Dijkstra's algorithm, and for graphs with O(n) edges our algorithm is within a tiny O(log (n; n)) factor of optimal. Our algorithm can be implemented to run in polynomial time (granted, a large polynomial). We leave open the problem of providing an efficient implementation.

We present a study of multithreaded implementations of Thorup’s algorithm for solving the Single Source Shortest Path (SSSP) problem for undirected graphs. Our implementations leverage the fledgling MultiThreaded Graph Library (MTGL) to perform operations such as finding connected components and extracting induced subgraphs. To achieve good parallel performance from this algorithm, we deviate from several theoretically optimal algorithmic steps. In this paper, we present simplifications that perform better in practice, and we describe details of the multithreaded implementation that were necessary for scalability. We study synthetic graphs that model unstructured networks, such as social networks and economic transaction networks. Most of the recent progress in shortest path algorithms relies on structure that these networks do not have. In this work, we take a step back and explore the synergy between an elegant theoretical algorithm and an elegant computer architecture. Finally, we conclude with a prediction that this work will become relevant to shortest path computation on structured networks. 1.

We consider the problem of preprocessing an edgeweighted directed graph to answer queries that ask for the shortest path from any given vertex to another avoiding a failed link. We present two algorithms that improve on earlier results for this problem. Our first algorithm, which is a modification of an earlier method, improves the query time to a constant while maintaining the earlier bounds for preprocessing time and space. Our second result is a new algorithm whose preprocessing time is considerably faster than earlier results and whose query time and space are worse by no more than a logarithmic factor.
