Given a graph and a source vertex src in graph, find shortest paths from src to all vertices in the given graph. The graph may contain negative weight edges. Bellman-Ford is also simpler than Dijkstra and suites well for distributed systems. Input: Graph and a source vertex src Output: Shortest distance to all vertices from src.
If there is a negative weight cycle, then shortest distances are not calculated, negative weight cycle is reported. Create an array dist of size V with all values as infinite except dist[src] where src is source vertex. Do following V -1 times where V is the number of vertices in given graph. If we iterate through all edges one more time and get a shorter path for any vertex, then there is a negative weight cycle. How does this work?
Like other Dynamic Programming Problems, the algorithm calculates shortest paths in a bottom-up manner. It first calculates the shortest distances which have at-most one edge in the path. Then, it calculates the shortest paths with at-most 2 edges, and so on. After the i-th iteration of the outer loop, the shortest paths with at most i edges are calculated.
There can be maximum V — 1 edges in any simple path, that is why the outer loop runs v — 1 times. Example Let us understand the algorithm with following example graph. The images are taken from this source. Let the given source vertex be 0. Initialize all distances as infinite, except the distance to the source itself. Total number of vertices in the graph is 5, so all edges must be processed 4 times. We get the following distances when all edges are processed the first time.
The first row shows initial distances. The third row shows distances when A, C is processed. The first iteration guarantees to give all shortest paths which are at most 1 edge long. We get the following distances when all edges are processed second time The last row shows final values.
The second iteration guarantees to give all shortest paths which are at most 2 edges long. The algorithm processes all edges 2 more times. Notes 1 Negative weights are found in various applications of graphs. For example, instead of paying cost for a path, we may get some advantage if we follow the path.
Exercise 1 The standard Bellman-Ford algorithm reports the shortest path only if there are no negative weight cycles. Modify it so that it reports minimum distances even if there is a negative weight cycle. Will this algorithm work? Bellman Ford Algorithm Simple Implementation.

The Bellman—Ford algorithm is an algorithm that computes shortest paths from a single source vertex to all of the other vertices in a weighted digraph. Moore also published the same algorithm in , and for this reason it is also sometimes called the Bellman—Ford—Moore algorithm. Negative edge weights are found in various applications of graphs, hence the usefulness of this algorithm. In such a case, the Bellman—Ford algorithm can detect and report the negative cycle. Like Dijkstra's algorithm , Bellman—Ford proceeds by relaxation , in which approximations to the correct distance are replaced by better ones until they eventually reach the solution.
