Introduction to Depth-First Search

Learn about the history and evolution of depth-first search.

We'll cover the following

In this lesson, we focus on a particular instantiation of the algorithm called depth-first search and primarily on the behavior of this algorithm in directed graphs. Although depth-first search can be accurately described as “whatever-first search with a stack,” the algorithm is normally implemented recursively rather than using an explicit stack:
