Date Resource
11/29 Euler and Hamilton Paths
11/26 ACM Programming Constest. (2001 regional problems)
11/26 Dijkstra's Algorithm
11/20 Graphs in general Warshall's Algorithm
  • Some notes (from U of Rochester). Includes C-like code.
Floyd-Warshall All Pairs Shortest Paths
  • Some notes on all pairs shortest paths (from U of Rochester). Includes C-like code, comparison with Dijkstra's Algorithm.
  • Java Demo from the Algorithms Tutoring Web Page (Greece)
  • This Java Demo lets you put in your own graph, but it is not as well designed otherwise.
  • This all-pairs shortest paths page (from Brunel U.) describes the algorithm, and includes a Java demo. The Java demo lets you enter edge lengths for in a 5 x 5 matrix (for graphs with 5 vertices) and shows the shortest paths, but has some annoying features. This applet doesn't really let you see how the algorithm works, only the results.
