The minimum-weight spanning tree problem is one of the most typical and well-known problems of combinatorial optimisation. E$cient solution techniques had been known for many years. However, in the last two decades asymptotically faster algorithms have been invented. Each new algorithm brought the time bound one step closer to linearity and "nally Karger, Klein and Tarjan proposed the only known expected linear-time method. Modern algorithms make use of more advanced data structures and appear… CONTINUE READING
