Robert Floyd

Birthdate: 8. June 1936
Date of death: 25. September 2001

Robert W "Bob" Floyd was a computer scientist.

His contributions include the design of the Floyd–Warshall algorithm , which efficiently finds all shortest paths in a graph, Floyd's cycle-finding algorithm for detecting cycles in a sequence, and his work on parsing. In one isolated paper he introduced the important concept of error diffusion for rendering images, also called Floyd–Steinberg dithering . One achievement was pioneering the field of program verification using logical assertions with the 1967 paper Assigning Meanings to Programs. This was a contribution to what later became Hoare logic.

Floyd received the Turing Award in 1978.
