The returned function is specifically suitable for input to

Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph.
weight : string or function
If it is callable, `weight` itself is returned. If it is a string,
it is assumed to be the name of the edge attribute that represents
the weight of an edge. In that case, a function is returned that
gets the edge weight according to the specified edge attribute.
Returns
-------
function
This function returns a callable that accepts exactly three inputs:
a node, an node adjacent to the first one, and the edge attribute
dictionary for the eedge joining those nodes. That function returns
a number representing the weight of an edge.
If `G` is a multigraph, and `weight` is not callable, the
minimum edge weight over all parallel edges is returned. If any edge
does not have an attribute with key `weight`, it is assumed to
have weight one.

"""Returns the shortest weighted path from source to target in G.
Uses Dijkstra's Method to compute the shortest weighted path
between two nodes in a graph.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
source : node
Starting node
target : node
Ending node
weight : string or function
If this is a string, then edge weights will be accessed via the
edge attribute with this key (that is, the weight of the edge
joining `u` to `v` will be ``G.edges[u, v][weight]``). If no
such edge attribute exists, the weight of the edge is assumed to
be one.
If this is a function, the weight of an edge is the value
returned by the function. The function must accept exactly three
positional arguments: the two endpoints of an edge and the
dictionary of edge attributes for that edge. The function must
return a number.
Returns
-------
path : list
List of nodes in a shortest path.
Raises
------
NodeNotFound
If `source` is not in `G`.
NetworkXNoPath
If no path exists between source and target.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.path_graph(5)
>>> print(nx.dijkstra_path(G, 0, 4))
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4]
Notes
-----
Edge weight attributes must be numerical.
Distances are calculated as sums of weighted edges traversed.
The weight function can be used to hide edges by returning None.
So ``weight = lambda u, v, d: 1 if d['color']=="red" else None``
will find the shortest red path.
The weight function can be used to include node weights.
>>> def func(u, v, d):
... node_u_wt = G.nodes[u].get("node_weight", 1)
... node_v_wt = G.nodes[v].get("node_weight", 1)
... edge_wt = d.get("weight", 1)
... return node_u_wt / 2 + node_v_wt / 2 + edge_wt
In this example we take the average of start and end node
weights of an edge and add it to the weight of the edge.

path and length-of-path if you need both, use that.

If this is a function, the weight of an edge is the value
returned by the function. The function must accept exactly three
positional arguments: the two endpoints of an edge and the
dictionary of edge attributes for that edge. The function must
return a number.
Yields
------
(node, (distance, path)) : (node obj, (dict, dict))
Each source node has two associated dicts. The first holds distance
keyed by target and the second holds paths keyed by target.
(See single_source_dijkstra for the source/target node terminology.)
If desired you can apply `dict()` to this function to create a dict
keyed by source node to the two dicts.

--------
>>> G = nx.path_graph(5)
>>> len_path = dict(nx.all_pairs_dijkstra(G))
>>> print(len_path[3][0][1])

[docs]def negative_edge_cycle(G, weight="weight", heuristic=True):
"""Returns True if there exists a negative edge cycle anywhere in G.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
weight : string or function
If this is a string, then edge weights will be accessed via the
edge attribute with this key (that is, the weight of the edge
joining `u` to `v` will be ``G.edges[u, v][weight]``). If no
such edge attribute exists, the weight of the edge is assumed to
be one.
If this is a function, the weight of an edge is the value
returned by the function. The function must accept exactly three
positional arguments: the two endpoints of an edge and the
dictionary of edge attributes for that edge. The function must
return a number.
heuristic : bool
Determines whether to use a heuristic to early detect negative
cycles at a negligible cost. In case of graphs with a negative cycle,
the performance of detection increases by at least an order of magnitude.
Returns
-------
negative_cycle : bool
True if a negative edge cycle exists, otherwise False.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.cycle_graph(5, create_using=nx.DiGraph())
>>> print(nx.negative_edge_cycle(G))
False
>>> G[1][2]["weight"] = -7
>>> print(nx.negative_edge_cycle(G))
True
Notes
-----
Edge weight attributes must be numerical.
Distances are calculated as sums of weighted edges traversed.
This algorithm uses bellman_ford_predecessor_and_distance() but finds
negative cycles on any component by first adding a new node connected to
every node, and starting bellman_ford_predecessor_and_distance on that
node. It then removes that extra node.

[docs]def bidirectional_dijkstra(G, source, target, weight="weight"):
r"""Dijkstra's algorithm for shortest paths using bidirectional search.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
source : node
Starting node.
target : node
Ending node.
weight : string or function
If this is a string, then edge weights will be accessed via the
edge attribute with this key (that is, the weight of the edge
joining `u` to `v` will be ``G.edges[u, v][weight]``). If no
such edge attribute exists, the weight of the edge is assumed to
be one.
If this is a function, the weight of an edge is the value
returned by the function. The function must accept exactly three
positional arguments: the two endpoints of an edge and the
dictionary of edge attributes for that edge. The function must
return a number.
Returns
-------
length, path : number and list
length is the distance from source to target.
path is a list of nodes on a path from source to target.
Raises
------
NodeNotFound
If either `source` or `target` is not in `G`.
NetworkXNoPath
If no path exists between source and target.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.path_graph(5)
>>> length, path = nx.bidirectional_dijkstra(G, 0, 4)
>>> print(length)
4
>>> print(path)
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4]
Notes
-----
Edge weight attributes must be numerical.
Distances are calculated as sums of weighted edges traversed.
In practice bidirectional Dijkstra is much more than twice as fast as
ordinary Dijkstra.
Ordinary Dijkstra expands nodes in a sphere-like manner from the
source. The radius of this sphere will eventually be the length
of the shortest path. Bidirectional Dijkstra will expand nodes
from both the source and the target, making two spheres of half
this radius. Volume of the first sphere is `\pi*r*r` while the
others are `2*\pi*r/2*r/2`, making up half the volume.
This algorithm is not guaranteed to work if edge weights
are negative or are floating point numbers
(overflows and roundoff errors can cause problems).

r"""Uses Johnson's Algorithm to compute shortest paths.
Johnson's Algorithm finds a shortest path between each pair of
nodes in a weighted graph even if negative weights are present.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
weight : string or function
If this is a string, then edge weights will be accessed via the
edge attribute with this key (that is, the weight of the edge
joining `u` to `v` will be ``G.edges[u, v][weight]``). If no
such edge attribute exists, the weight of the edge is assumed to
be one.
If this is a function, the weight of an edge is the value
returned by the function. The function must accept exactly three
positional arguments: the two endpoints of an edge and the
dictionary of edge attributes for that edge. The function must
return a number.
Returns
-------
distance : dictionary
Dictionary, keyed by source and target, of shortest paths.
Raises
------
NetworkXError
If given graph is not weighted.
Examples
--------
>>> graph = nx.DiGraph()
>>> graph.add_weighted_edges_from(
... [("0", "3", 3), ("0", "1", -5), ("0", "2", 2), ("1", "2", 4), ("2", "3", 1)]
... )
>>> paths = nx.johnson(graph, weight="weight")
>>> paths["0"]["2"]
['0', '1', '2']
Notes
-----
Johnson's algorithm is suitable even for graphs with negative weights. It
works by using the Bellmanâ€“Ford algorithm to compute a transformation of
the input graph that removes all negative weights, allowing Dijkstra's
algorithm to be used on the transformed graph.
The time complexity of this algorithm is $O(n^2 \log n + n m)$,
where $n$ is the number of nodes and $m$ the number of edges in the
graph. For dense graphs, this may be faster than the Floydâ€“Warshall
algorithm.
