The shortest path problem is well known in the field of computer science. An adjacency list is probably the best data structure to represent a set of connected vertices to find the shortest path from one vertex to another. One application for shortest paths is in mapping. Another common application for its use is in computer networking routing to find the shortest trip for a packet.
