Minimum Spammning Trees

Old News See Also Recommended Books Recommended Links Dominators   Humor Etc

Consider a directed graph, G(N,A), where N and A are the set of nodes and arcs, respectively. Associated with each arc (i,j) in A is a cost c(i,j). Let |N|=n and |A|=m. The problem is to find a rooted directed spanning tree, G(N,S) where S is a subset of A such that the sum of c(i,j) for all (i,j) in S is minimized. The rooted directed spanning tree is defined as a graph which connects, without any cycle, all nodes with n-1 arcs, i.e., each node, except the root, has one and only one incoming arc.

....list. We call this embedding dependent depthfirst search topological. Figure 1 gives an example of an embedded planar graph and spanning tree with preorder and postorder numbering. We denote the preorder and postorder numbers of v by pre(v) and post(v) respectively. It is well known (see e.g. [17]) that for any pair u and v of vertices, v is an ancestor of u if and only if pre(v) pre(u) and post(u) post(v) Let f be a non tree edge fu; vg. We denote by nca(f) the nearest common ancestor of u and v. Edge f is a potential critical edge for every vertex on the tree path connecting u and v, ....

Data Structures and Algorithms Graph Algorithms 10.1 Minimum Spanning Trees

Suppose we have a group of islands that we wish to link with bridges so that it is possible to travel from one island to any other in the group. Further suppose that (as usual) our government wishes to spend the absolute minimum amount on this project (because other factors like the cost of using, maintaining, etc, these bridges will probably be the responsibility of some future government :-). The engineers are able to produce a cost for a bridge linking each possible pair of islands. The set of bridges which will enable one to travel from any island to any other at minimum capital cost to the government is the minimum spanning tree.
