Minimum Sum Path In 3-D Array

Given a 3-D array arr[l][m][n], the task is to find the minimum path sum from the first cell of array to the last cell of array. We can only traverse to adjacent element, i.e., from a given cell (i, j, k), cells (i+1, j, k), (i, j+1, k) and (i, j, k+1) can be traversed, diagonal traversing is not allowed, We may assume that all costs are positive integers.

Examples:

Input : arr[][][]= { {{1, 2}, {3, 4}},
                     {{4, 8}, {5, 2}} };
Output : 9
Explanation : arr[0][0][0] + arr[0][0][1] + 
              arr[0][1][1] + arr[1][1][1]

Input : { { {1, 2}, {4, 3}},
          { {3, 4}, {2, 1}} };
Output : 7
Explanation : arr[0][0][0] + arr[0][0][1] + 
              arr[0][1][1] + arr[1][1][1]

Let us consider a 3-D array arr[2][2][2] represented by a cuboid having values as:

arr[][][] = {{{1, 2}, {3, 4}},
            { {4, 8}, {5, 2}}};
Result = 9 is calculated as:

This problem is similar to Min cost path. and can be solved using Dynamic Programming/
