The second problem that we will consider for networks is that of finding the shortest route between any two vertices in the network. As the name suggests the shortest route problem is most commonly applied to transport networks. Other applications include, for example, cost minimisation. Although there are a number of algorithms that are designed to find minimum cost routes between vertices in a network the only algorithm with which you need to be familiar for D1 is Dijkstra’s algorithm.
