It has been known for several decades that shortest-paths algorithms such as those of Bellman-Ford and Dijkstra can be generalized to commutative and idempotent semirings. This course will review the basics of this theory, as well as some further generalizations that go beyond semirings. For the core material I will attempt to condense those parts of the 2001 book

  • Graphes, dioides et semi-anneaux : Nouveaux modèles et algorithmes by Michel Gondran, Michel Minoux

which I have found to be most relevant to network routing. No previous knowledge of the area will be assumed.
