"Lattices:" A DAG is a lattice if there is one vertex that can reach
every vertex and one vertex that can be reached by every vertex.
- Outline an algorithm to determine if a DAG is a lattice.
- What is the asymptotoc order of its running time?
- Describe how it works on the graph of 9 nodes with directed
(from, to) arcs
between the following nodes:
(1,2) (2,4) (3,4) (5,3) (6,3)
(7,3) (8,2) (9,1) (9,5) (9,6) (9,7) (9,8).

"DGs:" Give a weighted directed graph and a source vertex such that
neither the depth-first search tree nor the breadth-first search
tree is a shortest-path tree, regardless of how the adjacency lists
This solution to the problem of finding the shortest cycle in an
undirected graph does not work because of a fundamental flaw
in the strategy, not a detail. What's wrong?
"When a back edge, say vw, is encountered during a depth-first
search, it forms a cycle with the tree edges from w to
The length of the cycle is depth[v] - depth[w] +1, where
depth is the depth of the DFS tree. So, do a depth-first
search, keeping track of the depth of each vertex. Each time a back
edge is encountered, compute the cycle length and save it if it is
smaller than the shortest one previously seen."
"Hypersink:"Most algorithms that use graph adjacency matrices are
Let G = (V,E) be a digraph with n vertices. Vertex s is a
if, for every v in V except s, there is an edge vs and no edge of the
form sv. Give an algorithm to determine whether G has a hypersink, G
being specified by its n by n adjacency matrix.
How many matrix entries are examined by your algorithm in the worst
case? An n2 algorithm is easy, but there is a linear
