Definition: The problem of finding the kth shortest path from one vertex in a graph to another vertex. Variants may require that paths are edge- or vertex-disjoint, that is sharing no edges or vertices. "Shortest" may be least number of edges, least total weight, etc.
Specialization (... is a kind of me.)
