Expand description

[Generic] k’th shortest path algorithm.

Compute the length of the k’th shortest path from start to every reachable node.

The graph should be Visitable and implement IntoEdges. The function edge_cost should return the cost for a particular edge, which is used to compute path costs. Edge costs must be non-negative.

If goal is not None, then the algorithm terminates once the goal node’s cost is calculated.

Computes in *O(k * (|E| + |V|log(|V|))) time (average).

Returns a HashMap that maps NodeId to path cost.
