## Parallel Single-Source Shortest Path Algorithms

· 3 min read

In graph theory, finding the shortest paths from a single source to all other vertices in a graph is a crucial problem that extends beyond theoretical computer science to practical applications in network routing, urban planning, and optimization. Traditionally addressed by sequential algorithms like Dijkstra’s or Bellman-Ford, the rise of parallel computing has prompted the development of methods that use multiple processors to manage larger graphs efficiently. This blog post explores the key concepts and advancements in parallel single-source shortest path (SSSP) algorithms.
