This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 9th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms, ESA 2001, held in Aarhus, Denmark, in August 2001. The 41 revised full papers presented together with three invited contributions were carefully reviewed and selected from 102 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on caching and prefetching, online algorithms, data structures, optimization and approximation, sequences, scheduling, shortest paths, geometry, distributed algorithms, graph algorithms, pricing, broadcasting and multicasting, graph labeling and graph drawing, and graphs.
