### Abstract

This video illustrates the k-LinkSolver software for computing k-link shortest paths in weighted regions. The k-LinkSolver implements methods to find paths of length at most (1 + ε) times the length of a shortest k-link path, for any fixed ε > 0, and having at most 2k - 1 links. The methods implemented are an improvement over the previously known (1 + ε)-approximation algorithms, which guarantee at most 5k - 2 links.
