Department of Informatics, King’s College London 2020/21, Second term

Topics
• Single-source shortest-paths; restricted cases • Only non-negative edge weights allowed:
Dijkstra’s shortest-paths algorithm
• The input graph is acyclic (a DAG – a directed acyclic graph): Single-source shortest paths algorithm for DAG’s
• In both cases, the Bellman-Ford shortest-paths algorithm can be used.
In both cases, the new algorithms are faster than the Bellman-Ford algorithm.

Dijkstra’s shortest-paths algorithm
• Crucial assumption: all edge weights are nonnegative.
• For convenience, assume that all nodes are reachable from s.

• Q is implemented as a

The correctness of Dijkstra’s algorithm
An intermediate state of the computation (at the end of one iteration).
• Set S grows by one node per one iteration

• All edges from nodes in S, and only these edges, have been relax’ed.
• AllnodesinS orattheendofedgesfromS:
• have finite d[.] values (by induction)
• have parents, forming a tree (no negative cycles and Prop. (8)). • For all other nodes, d[.] = ∞, and not in the parent tree.

The correctness of Dijkstra’s algorithm (2)
At the end of set S = V the computation:
• SetS=V.
For each v ∈ V , d[v] is finite and d[v] ≥ δ(s, v). The parent subgraph is a tree (rooted at s) which includes all nodes.
• We haven’t shown yet that the computed: tree is a shortest paths tree and
the d[.] values are the shortest-path weights.

The correctness of Dijkstra’s algorithm (2): the crucial property
The crucial property (the invariant of the computation of Dijkstra’s algorithm):
At the end of each iteration (on the main loop) of Dijkstra’s algorithm, foreachnodev∈S, d[v]=δ(s,v).
• This property can be shown by induction on the number of iterations.
• Basis of the induction: The property holds at the end of the first iteration:
S={s}, d[s]=0=δ(s,s). set S

The invariant of Dijkstra’s algorithm: the induction step
Induction step:
set S
• Assume the invariant holds at the end of some iteration
(not the last one):
s
for each v ∈ S, d[v] = δ(s, v).
• Let u denote the node selected in the next (current) iteration.
set S
u
• Show that the invariant holds at the end of
the current iteration, (after u added to set S).
s
• That is, show that d[u] = δ(s, u).
6CCS3OME/7CCSMOME, Lecture 2

u

The invariant of Dijkstra’s algorithm: the induction step (cont.)
• We have to show that at the beginning of the current iteration, d[u] is the shortest-path weight from s to u. That is, we have to show that d[u] = δ(s, u).
• We have d[u] ≥ δ(s, u) (relaxation technique). We show d[u] ≤ δ(s, u).
set S the tree path to x
u x
• Take any (simple) path R from s to u and show that its weight w(R) ≥ d[u].
R2
• Letzbethefirstnodeon path R which is outside S, and let y be the predecessor of z on R (so y ∈ S).
s
R1 y
z
x = Parent[u]
• Let R1 be the initial part of path R ending at node y, and let R2 be the part of path R from node z to the final node u.
• w(R) = w(R1)+w(y,z)+w(R2) ≥ d[y]+w(y,z)+w(R2) ≥ d[z]+w(R2) ≥ d[u]+w(R2) ≥ d[u].
• The inequalities above follow from: the inductive assumption, RELAX(y,z) done, the rule for selecting u, and the non-negative weights of edges, respectively.
• Thus no path from s to u has smaller weight than d[u], so d[u] ≤ δ(s, u). 6CCS3OME/7CCSMOME, Lecture 2

The running time of Dijkstra’s algorithm
• n – number of nodes; m – number of edges.
• Initialisation (as in the relaxation technique): Θ(n).
• For every edge (u, v), RELAX(u, v) is performed exactly once.
This happens during the iteration when node u is removed from Q. (Each node is removed from Q exactly once.)
• The running time depends on the implementation of the priority queue Q.
• Notethat n−1≤m≤n(n−1), so m=Ω(n) and m=O(n2).
• The naive implementation of Q, using an unordered list of elements: bcfklpqrsw
Q:w c b k q d:
• one EXTRACT-MIN(Q): O(n) time; all of them: O(n2); • one RELAX operation: O(1); all of them: O(m);
• the total running time: Θ(n) + O(n2) + O(m) = O(n2).
• What would be the running time of Dijkstra’s algorithm, if Q was maintained
asanorderedlist? (LGT).
6CCS3OME/7CCSMOME, Lecture 2 11 / 27

PriorityQueueimplementedasHeap: operationsandperformance
• To improve the running time of Dijkstra’s algorithm, use the Heap implementation of the Priority-Queue to maintain Q.
• The main Priority Queue operations in Heap (n denotes the size of the heap, that is, the number of elements in the heap):
• INSERT(Q, v, k): insert the value-key pair (v, k). O(log n) time
• EXTRACT-MIN(Q): remove and return the pair with the smallest key.
• Check if Heap is not empty.
• Initialise Heap with given n elements.
O(log n) time O(1) (constant) time Θ(n) time.
• In Dijkstra’s algorithm, we also need heap operation: HEAP-DECREASE-KEY(Q, v, k)
– decrease the key associated with v to k. O(log n) time
6CCS3OME/7CCSMOME, Lecture 2
12 / 27

Dijkstra’s algorithm with Heap
• The set Q in Dijkstra’s algorithm maintained as Heap:
• Initialisation of the Heap: Θ(n) time.
• One EXTRACT-MIN(Q): O(log n) time; all: O(n log n) time.
• one RELAX(u, v): O(log n) time, since it may involve one operation HEAP-DECREASE-KEY; all: O(m log n) time.
• The total running time of Dijkstra’s algorithm with Heap is: Θ(n)+Θ(n)+O(nlogn)+O(mlogn)=O(mlogn).
• If the input graph is dense, that is (here), if m = Ω(n2/ log n), then the implementation of Dijkstra’s algorithm without Heap (maintaining Q as an unordered list) gives the better (worst-case) running time – O(n2).
• For the other cases (when m = O(n2/ log n)), the implementation of Dijkstra’s algorithm with Heap gives the better (worst-case) running time.
• In most applications of Dijkstra’s algorithm, graphs are not dense, so Dijkstra’s algorithm is commonly assumed to use Heap.

Heap implementation of Priority Queue data structure
• Heap: An array A[1..n] with a sequence of numbers (keys) and associated data (values), satisfying some specific partial order of the entries.
This specific order is called the heap property (Min-Heap here):
A[i]≤A[2i] and A[i]≤A[2i+1], fori=1,2,… Below, an arrow points from a smaller key to a larger key:
A[1] A[2] A[3] A[4] A[5]A[6]
A[i]
A[2i]A[2i+1]
smallest key
A[4] A[5]
A[6] A[7]
A[2]
A[3]
A[1]
• The operations of extracting the minimum and inserting a new element take O(log n) time, where n is the current size of the Heap.

Heap in Dijkstra’s algorithm
The entries in the Heap array are the pairs (u, d[u]), where u is a node in the graph and d[u] is its current shortest path estimate. The number d[u] is the key of this entry.

• We need a heap operation HEAP-DECREASE-KEY, which restores the heap property when the key of one entry is decreased.
RELAX(u,v) (in Dijkstra’s algorithm, if Q is a Heap) if d[v]>d[u]+w(u,v) then
d[v] ← d[u] + w(u, v); PARENT[v] ← u HEAP-DECREASE-KEY(Q, v, d[v])
Operation HEAP-DECREASE-KEY takes O(log n) time.

Single-source shortest paths in DAG’s

Output: theshortest-pathweightsfromstoallothernodes and a shortest-paths tree from s.
There may be edges with negative weights, but no problem with negative cycles, because there are no cycles at all.

Application
• Determine the critical (longest) paths in PERT chart analysis (Program Evaluation and Review Technique).
• Nodes: milestones of the project (‘synchronisation points’) . Edges: tasks of the project. The weight of an edge: the duration of this task.
Find the longest path from node “begin” to node “end”:
this gives the fastest possible time for completing the whole project (that is, for completing all tasks of the project).

3. (Exercise 24.2-3 from [CLRS])
The PERT chart formulation given in this lecture is somewhat unnatural. More naturally, vertices would represent tasks and edges would represent order constraints; edge (u, v) would indicate that task u must be performed before task v. We would then assign weights (duration of the tasks) to vertices, not edges. Modify the DAGSHORTESTPATHS algorithm so that it finds, in linear time, a longest path in a directed acyclic graph with weighted vertices. Let w(v) denote the weight of a vertex v.
