If you have ever used a navigation service to find optimal route and estimate time to destination, you've used algorithms on graphs. Graphs arise in various real-world situations as there are road networks, computer networks and, most recently, social networks! If you're looking for the fastest time to get to work, cheapest way to connect set of computers into a network or efficient algorithm to automatically find communities and opinion leaders in Facebook, you're going to work with graphs and algorithms on graphs.
In this course, you will first learn what a graph is and what are some of the most important properties. Then you'll learn several ways to traverse graphs and how you can do useful things while traversing the graph in some order. We will then talk about shortest paths algorithms — from the basic ones to those which open door for 1000000 times faster algorithms used in Google Maps and other navigational services. You will use these algorithms if you choose to work on our Fast Shortest Routes industrial capstone project. We will finish with minimum spanning trees which are used to plan road, telephone and computer networks and also find applications in clustering and approximate algorithms....

Excellent Course for anyone looking to expertise Graph Algorithm. Professor's explained each problem and algorithm in a very easy to learn approach. Grades are tough and yet func to get challenged.

Good balance between theory and practice. The assignments are well thought to measure the understanding of videos, which I had to watch many times to grasp the hidden tips from the instructor.

I have finished the specialization. This course is mostly useful though challenging. I wish there were less overly theoretical lectures and more practical examples and assignments instead. Textbooks already have theory.

Overall good course, programming tasks are fun!

However, some of the video lectures are only of average quality. Accent of the TA is sometimes confusing (fyi I'm not a native speaker).

Awesome course! Learned a lot about graphs, and I thought it was super awesome. One recommendation is to make the proof videos more engaging, but otherwise, the course was perfect!

Very interesting and well presented course. I particularly wanted to learn more on graphs and this helped me get not only a basic but a more advanced understanding.

Perfect as previous courses of the specialization. Just basic graph algorithms were given. I'm inclined to believe, it was introduction to algorithms on graphs.

Fairly good course. I wish the edge cases for some of the programming assignments had some more discussions. Needed some sifting through the forums while stuck.

Covers almost all topics, clear all concepts with good explanation and examples. Instructors are fluent and engaging, while assignments are also good.

It was good for basic graph algorithms but advanced data structures and its use was missing such as segment trees! It can be included in it.

the course theory was good but for precise pseudo code should have been provided, i had little difficulty writing those pseudo code in C++.

Amazing material and assignments

the only disadvantage of it that the section of the shortest path is not perfect (not in assignments)

this course provides the simplist way to explain algorithms, but more exercises may be helpful to improve understanding of topics.

Quite a tough course but they must provide a little bit more support for students who are unable to solve assignment problems.

Good course but assignments are pretty straight forward and lectures are nor clear enough.Highly suggested for basic learning.

I never a reply when i ask a question on the discussion forum, kindly improve this, otherwise the course was great.

This course is easier than the previous three, but will help in gaining basic to intermediate knowledge on graphs.

Rather easy course. But week^(which is optional) is not that easy at all, covering more interesting algorithms.

Great course for graph algorithms. However I feel like some of the algorithms were not fully clear explained.

Great course for learning or revisiting the concepts of algorithms on graphs. Definitely recommend it.

Week 5 Instructor's accent is quite difficult to get, otherwise overall course is good.

It's worth!!!
