We present some analytical and geometric properties of shortest ordered paths joining two given points with respect to a sequence of line segments in a Euclidean space, especially their existence, uniqueness, characteristics, and conditions for concatenation of two shortest ordered paths to be a shortest ordered path. We then focus on straightest paths lying on a sequence of adjacent convex polygons in 2 or 3 dimensional spaces.

Keywords: Shortest paths, ordered paths, shortest ordered paths, straightest paths, concatenation of paths.
