**Decision Maths 1**Shortest path algorithm Dijkstra’s Algorithm A V Ali : www.2july-maths.co.uk**Dijkstra’s algorithm used to find the shortest path**through a network. • Set up 1 : Decide on a Start Node and End Node. • Set up 2 : Add a recording box to each node in the network – use the following format to help keep track of each choice : • Box 1 : Route length to this node • Box 2 : Shortest Route • Box 3 : Node order • Step 1 : For first node label Box 1, 2 and 3 all 0. • Step 2 : Each node has Box 1 labeled as the shortest distance to this node from the start so far. • Step 3 : Go from each node labeled so far, and replace Box 1 value if a new shortest path from the start is found. • Step 4 : Repeat 3, for all nodes in the network. Label Box 2 when you have checked the shortest path has been found. Label Box 3 with the node order number through the path.
