Alice Mizrahi, thomas Marsh, Brian D. Hoskins, Mark D. Stiles
Finding the shortest path in a graph has applications to a wide range of optimization problems. However, algorithmic methods scale with the size of the graph in terms of time and energy. We propose a method to solve the shortest path problem using circuits
