Abstract: We study the problem of finding the next-to-shortest paths in a graph. A next-to-shortest $(u,v)$-path is a shortest $(u,v)$-path amongst $(u,v)$-paths with length strictly greater than the length of the shortest $(u,v)$-path. In constrast to the situation in directed graphs, where the problem has been shown to be NP-hard, providing edges of length zero are allowed, we prove the somewhat surprising result that there is a polynomial time algorithm for the undirected version of the problem.
