File Information

[ DIST, PATH ] = graphkshortestpaths( G, S, T, K ) determines the K shortest paths from node S to node T. weights of the edges are all positive entries in the n-by-n adjacency matrix represented by the sparse matrix G. DIST are the K distances from S to T; PATH is a cell array with the K shortest paths themselves.

the shortest path algorithm used is Dijkstra's algorithm (graphshortestpath).

**Please note that the algorithm implemented here is an undirected version of Yen's algorithm**

@Javier Montoya: This is an implementation of the undirected version of Yen's algorithm. I would suspect that several changes will be needed to make it directed; the line you mentioned should probably be deleted, among other alterations.

@El-ad David Amir, I guess, that you're considering the sG sparse graph as being undirected (symmetric), right?
In case of directed graph, then following line should not be used, right
=> k_G( j_next_node, i_node ) = 0; ?

@El-ad David Amir, By symmetric graphs I was referring to undirected graphs ;-)

@El-ad David Amir
Some function ur script used is missing in my matlab, I thought is a intact, but now, I fix the problem. Sorry for the misunderstanding, thanks for your reply.

@Qiu: What do you mean by "not intact"?

I have clarified the description by highlighting the fact that this is an undirected version of the algorithm.

I have fixed a bug that deleted the entire candidates list instead of just the k^th shortest path.
