K-Shortest Simple Paths Using Biobjective Path Search

In this paper we introduce a new algorithm for the k-Shortest Simple Paths (k-SSP) problem with an asymptotic running time matching the state of the art from the literature. It is based on a black-box algorithm due to Roddity and Zwick that solves at most 2k instances of the Second Shortest Simple Path (2-SSP) problem … Read more

Targeted Multiobjective Dijkstra Algorithm

In this paper, we introduce the Targeted Multiobjective Dijkstra Algorithm (T-MDA), a label setting algorithm for the One-to-One Multiobjective Shortest Path (MOSP) Problem. The T-MDA is based on the recently published Multiobjective Dijkstra Algorithm (MDA) and equips it with A*-like techniques. The resulting speedup is comparable to the speedup that the original A* algorithm achieves … Read more

An O(nm) time algorithm for finding the min length directed cycle in a graph

In this paper, we introduce an $O(nm)$ time algorithm to determine the minimum length directed cycle in a directed network with $n$ nodes and $m$ arcs and with no negative length directed cycles. This result improves upon the previous best time bound of $O(nm + n^2 \log\log n)$. Our algorithm first determines the cycle with … Read more
