(LaTeX) Abstract:
In spite of intensive research, little progress has been
made towards fast and work-efficient parallel algorithms for the
single source shortest path problem. Our \emph{$\Delta$-stepping
algorithm}, a generalization of Dial's algorithm and the Bellman-Ford
algorithm, improves this situation at least in the following
``average-case'' sense:
For random directed graphs with edge probability $\frac{d}{n}$
and uniformly distributed edge weights a PRAM version works in
expected time ${\cal O}(\log^3 n/\log\log n)$ using linear work.

The algorithm also allows for efficient adaptation to
distributed memory machines. Implementations show that
our approach works on real machines.
As a side effect, we get a simple linear time sequential
algorithm for a large class of not necessarily random
directed graphs with random edge weights.
