Graph Traversals Visit vertices of a graph G to determine some property: Is G connected? Is there a path from vertex a to vertex b? Does G have a cycle? Will removing a single edge disconnect G? If G is directed, what are the strongly connected components? If G is the WWW, follow links to locate information. Most graph algorithms need to examine or process each vertex and each edge.

Breadth-First Search Find the shortest path from a source node s to all other nodes. Outputs the distance of each vertex from s. a tree of shortest paths called the breadth-first tree. Idea: Find nodes at distance 0, then at distance 1, then at distance 2, …

A BFS Example s d b g f e c a L = s 0

4
s d b g f e a Visualized as many simultaneous explorations starting from s and spreading out independently. L = s 0 L = a, c 1 frontier of exploration c

5
s d b g f e c a L = s 0 L = a, c 1 L = d, e, f 2 Dashed edges were explored but had resulted in the discovery of no new vertices.

6
s d b g f e c a L = s 0 L = a, c 1 L = d, e, f 2 L = b, g 3

7
The Finish s d b g f e c a L = s 0 L = a, c 1 L = d, e, f 2 L = b, g 3

8
Breadth-First Tree s d b g f e c a d(b): shortest distance from s to b # visited vertices = 1 + # tree edges 1 + # explored edges.

9
The BFS Algorithm BFS(G, s) for each v V(G) – s do d(v) // shortest distance from s d(s) 0 // initialization L s T i 0 while L ≠ do // all nodes at distance i from s L for each u L do for each v Adj(u) do if d(v) = then // not yet visited d(v) d(u) + 1 insert v into L T T {(u, v)} i i i i+1 i

Correctness Lemma For each i, the set L includes all nodes at distance i from s. i Proof By induction on the distance k from s. s … uv k Basis: L = s includes the only node at distance 0 from s. 0 Inductive step: Suppose L consists of all nodes at distance k ≥ 0 from s. k Corollary At the finish of BFS, d(v) is the length of the shortest path from s to v. k k+1 By hypothesis u L. Thus v L. Every node v at distance k+1 from s must be adjacent to a node u at distance k.

11
Running Time O(|E|) if G is represented using adjacency lists. # edge scans ≤ |E| for a directed graph ≤ 2 |E| for an undirected graph u v e u v e O(|V| ) if represented as an adjacency matrix. 2 Every vertex is inserted at most once into some list L. i # inserted vertices 1 + # scanned edges Courtesy of Dr. Fernandez-Baca |E| + 1.
