Abstract

We deal with the problem of computing in parallel the first K shortest paths from a single origin node to all other nodes of a directed graph. Our approach is based on a very easy way to introduce parallelism in the typical sequential label-correcting method. We describe formally an asynchronous method defined on a shared-memory parallel computational model, and we prove its theoretical correctness under very weak assumptions. According to different strategies used to implement the generic method, we propose several parallel labelcorrecting algorithms, and we analyze the numerical performance of the resulting codes on a nonuniform memory access multiprocessor via computational results collected on random generated networks. The advantage of parallelism is significant for very large-scale problems of practical interest.
