Routing algorithms

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am confused on what algorithms each Routing protocol uses?

Can someone summarize it for me?

RIP is a distance vector and uses Dijikstra and is a IGP

EIGRP is a hybrid protocol and uses DUAL and Dijikstra and is a IGP

OSPF is a link state protocol and uses SPF and Dijikstra  and is a IGP

BGP is a distance path and is a EGP ????
