Hierarchical Hub Labelings for Shortest Paths

We study hierarchical hub labelings for computing shortest paths. Our new theoretical insights on the structure of hierarchical labels lead to faster preprocessing algorithms, making the labeling approach practical for a wider class of graphs and enabling real-time traffic updates on road networks. We also find smaller labels, improving the query speed.
