Given a weighted Directed Graph where the weights may be negative, find the shortest path between every pair of vertices in the Graph using Johnson’s Algorithm.

The detailed explanation of Johnson’s algorithm has already been discussed in the previous post

This post focusses on the implementation of Johnson’s Algorithm.

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Algorithm:

1. Let the given graph be G. Add a new vertex s to the graph, add edges from new vertex to all vertices of G. Let the modified graph be G’.
2. Run Bellman-Ford algorithm on G’ with s as source. Let the distances calculated by Bellman-Ford be h[0], h[1], .. h[V-1]. If we find a negative weight cycle, then return. Note that the negative weight cycle cannot be created by new vertex s as there is no edge to s. All edges are from s.
3. Reweight the edges of original graph. For each edge (u, v), assign the new weight as “original weight + h[u] – h[v]”.
4. Remove the added vertex s and run Dijkstra’s algorithm for every vertex.

Example: Let us consider the following graph.

We add a source s and add edges from s to all vertices of the original graph. In the following diagram s is 4.

We calculate the shortest distances from 4 to all other vertices using Bellman-Ford algorithm. The shortest distances from 4 to 0, 1, 2 and 3 are 0, -5, -1 and 0 respectively, i.e., h[] = {0, -5, -1, 0}. Once we get these distances, we remove the source vertex 4 and reweight the edges using following formula. w(u, v) = w(u, v) + h[u] – h[v].

Since all weights are positive now, we can run Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm for every vertex as source.

Time Complexity: The time complexity of the above algorithm is as Dijkstra’s Algorithm takes for adjacency matrix. Note that the above algorithm can be made more efficient by using adjacency list instead of the adjacency matrix to represent the Graph.
