Parallel Implementation of Borvka's Minimum Spanning Tree Algorithm


We study parallel algorithms for the minimum spanning tree problem, based on the sequential algorithm of Borůvka. The target architectures for our algorithm are asynchronous, distributed-memory machines. Analysis of our parallel algorithm, on a simple model that is reminiscent of the LogP model, shows that in principle a speedup proportional to the number… (More)
