i fondly remember Dijkstra's shortest path algo from my Discrete mathematics class while doing computer science at NUS years ago.
how sad, this is the second prominent death this week (the first being Galen Rowell's.....)

Yes, I heard the news last week too. "Dijkstra's Algorithm" was one of the first optimisation algorithms I learnt, and I remember being impressed with its sheer elegance yet efficiency. Speaks volumes of the man behind the method. It is sad to see the passing of a true pioneer and giant in his field.
