Computing approximate shortest paths in the dynamic streaming setting is a fundamental challenge that has been intensively studied. Currently existing solutions for this problem either build a sparse multiplicative spanner of the input graph and compute shortest paths in the spanner offline, or compute an exact single source BFS tree. Solutions of the first type are doomed to incur a stretch-space tradeoff of 2k - 1 versus n1+1/k , for an integer parameter k. (In fact, existing solutions also incur an extra factor of 1+ in the stretch for weighted graphs, and an additional factor of logO(1) n in the space.) The only existing solution of the second type uses n1/2-O(1/k) passes over the stream (for space O(n1+1/k )), and applies only to unweighted graphs.
