Abstract: In this paper we consider a label-setting dynamic-programming algorithm for the Elementary Shortest Path Problem with Resource Constraints (ESPPRC). We use a pseudo resource to guarantee that labels are permanent. We observe that storing the states based on the subset of nodes visited by the associated path can improve the performance of the algorithm significantly. To this end we use a variant of a prefix tree to store the states and show by computational experiments that the performance of the dynamic programming algorithm is improved significantly when the number of undominated states is large.
