single_source_dijkstra_path_length(G, source, cutoff=None, weight='weight')[source]

Compute the shortest path length between source and all other reachable nodes for a weighted graph.

Parameters :

G : NetworkX graph

source : node label

Starting node for path

weight: string, optional (default=’weight’)

Edge data key corresponding to the edge weight.

cutoff : integer or float, optional

Depth to stop the search. Only paths of length <= cutoff are returned.

Returns :

length : dictionary

Dictionary of shortest lengths keyed by target.


Edge weight attributes must be numerical. Distances are calculated as sums of weighted edges traversed.
