Jan Christian Meyer, Ph.D. in Computer Science and Quora User, Ph.D Computer Science, University of Arizona (2010) · Author has 2.4k answers and 3.3m answer views Of course there are concrete algorithms and such to ascribe to Dijkstra, but I think his influence is mostly felt in his attitude to correctness and rigour in program development …
May 19, 2010 · We’ve all used those horrible SATNAV’s to get from one place to another. But how do they calculate the path we must follow in order to minimize the time needed. This is a shortest distance problem, which shall be covered in this post via Dijkstra’s Algorithm. Greedy Even though it may not seem like it,…
Dijkstra’s algorithm is an algorithm for finding the shortest paths between nodes in a graph, which may represent, for example, road networks. It was conceived by computer scientist Edsger W. Dijkstra in 1956 and published three years later.

On the nature of Computing Science. Now this summer school draws to a close, it seems appropriate to try to put its topic into some perspective
Edsger Dijkstra Quotes. Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes. Edsger Dijkstra. Computers, Computer, More. Simplicity is prerequisite for reliability. Edsger Dijkstra. Reliability, Prerequisite. There should be no such thing as boring mathematics.
Edsger Wybe Dijkstra was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 1930. Both of his parents were intellectual people and had received good educations. His father was a chemist, and his mother was a mathematician.
Among his contributions to computer science is the shortest path-algorithm, also known as Dijkstra’s algorithm; Reverse Polish Notation and related Shunting yard algorithm; the THE multiprogramming system; Banker’s algorithm; and the semaphore construct for coordinating multiple processors and programs.
Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS) is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and of practical techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems.
An interview with Dijkstra (Spanish translation here) was conducted in 1985 by Rogier F. van Vlissingen, who has also written a personal reflection on “Dijkstra’s sense of what computer science and programming are and what they aren’t.”
