Click on Generate Random Problem
to quickly produce a random network with random travel times.
The textfield labeled Nodes can be editted to specify
the number of nodes in the network.
If the Seed field is left blank
then an internally generated seed value will be used and the behavior of the
random problem generator will be different every time the applet is run.
however, a seed value is given (it must be an integer), then that value is
used to seed the random number generator.
Specifying a value for the number of
nodes and for the seed uniquely determines the sequence of problems
Click once on Setup Dijkstra select the initial set of ``candidate'' arcs
that lead into the root node. Candidate arcs are shown as blue.
Then, click on Do Dijkstra multiple times to perform the iterations of
the Dijkstra algorithm. Each click, converts one candidate arc to an arc on
the shortest path. The converted arc is shown in red and other arcs are added
to the set of blue candidate arcs.
