SHPATH - The Shortest Path

You are given a list of cities. Each direct connection between two cities has its transportation cost (an integer bigger than 0). The goal is to find the paths of minimum cost between pairs of cities. Assume that the cost of each path (which is the sum of costs of all direct connections belongning to this path) is at most 200000. The name of a city is a string containing characters a,...,z and is at most 10 characters long.



s [the number of tests <= 10]
n [the number of cities <= 10000]
NAME [city name]
p [the number of neighbours of city NAME]
nr cost [nr - index of a city connected to NAME (the index of the first city is 1)]
           [cost - the transportation cost]
r [the number of paths to find <= 100]
NAME1 NAME2 [NAME1 - source, NAME2 - destination]
[empty line separating the tests]




cost [the minimum transportation cost from city NAME1 to city NAME2 (one per line)]

was getting TLE!!!.
Just break the loop when you have reached the destination vertex.

1. Why using set gives TLE ? Because it doesn't keep duplicate entries, use multiset else priority queue.
2. What if the destination not connected with source? Assume connected.

AC in one Go :)
Dijkstra =AC
floyd warshall= TLE
this is becoz value of r is <=100 worth use Dijkstra

Was getting TLE
Stopped Dijkstra if the destination is arrived i.e if current node is destination
AC in 0.84

AC in one go! Easy problem. Just store these strings into a map and implement standard Dijkstra algorithm.

Naive Dijkstra->TLE, Dijkstra on sparse graphs->AC. ;)

if you are getting tle after every possible optimization, check if you have forgetten to clear your adajency list after each test case.

Use Priority Queue,Set Costed me 6 TLE
