Given a directed graph, a source vertex ‘s’ and a destination vertex ‘d’, print all paths from given ‘s’ to ‘d’.
Consider the following directed graph. Let the s be 2 and d be 3. There are 4 different paths from 2 to 3.
- The idea is to do Depth First Traversal of given directed graph.
- Start the DFS traversal from source.
- Keep storing the visited vertices in an array or HashMap say ‘path’.
- If the destination vertex is reached, print contents of path.
- The important thing is to mark current vertices in the path as visited also so that the traversal doesn’t go in a cycle.
Following is implementation of above idea.
Following are all different paths from 2 to 3 2 0 1 3 2 0 3 2 1 3
- Time Complexity: O(V^V).
The time complexity is polynomial. From each vertex there are v vertices that can be visited from current vertex.
- Auxiliary space: O(V^V).
To store the paths V^V space is needed.
