McKelvey Hall, 1020

William TheisenĀ 
PhD Candidate
Computer Vision Research Lab
University of Notre Dame

During this lecture, after a brief review of graph representation we will be introducing the idea of Single-Source Shortest Paths (SSSP) discovery in a graph. After an informal introduction of the algorithm, we will discuss data structure designs that could improve the efficiency of our algorithm and the overall complexity.
