**Kruskal's Algorithm:**

1.It is an Algorithm in graph theory that finds a minimum spanning tree for a connected weighted graph.

2.Kruskal is where we order the nodes from smallest to largest and pick accordingly.

3.Kruskal allows both new-new nodes and old-old nodes to get connected.

4.Kruskal's algorithm builds a minimum spanning tree by adding one edge at a time.The next line is always the shortest only if it does not create a cycle.

5.Kruskal's require us to sort the edge weight's first.

**Prim's Algorithm:**

1.It is the Algorithm that finds a minimum spanning tree for a connected weighted unidirected graph.

2.In Prim's algorithm we select an arbitrary node then correct the ones nearest to it.

3.Prim's always joins a new vertex to old vertex.

4.Prim's builds a minimum spanning tree by adding one vertex at a time. The next vertex to be added is always the one nearest to a vertex already on a graph.

5.In Prim's algorithm we select the shortest edge when executing the algorithm.

great ..........

ReplyDeletethumbs up...............

WHat exactly do u mean when u say "3.Kruskal allows both new-new nodes and old-old nodes to get connected."?

ReplyDeleteDoes old node mean selected/processed node in the set?and the new one which is the next node to be processed?

ofcors it means the same. you understood it correctly....

ReplyDeletegrest effort!! it is a useful post...

nce,,,

ReplyDeletevery clearly expressive ... great one :)

ReplyDeletevery brief... nice

ReplyDeletetanku :)

ReplyDeleteGreat!!

ReplyDeleteThanks man Great !!!

ReplyDeleteThanks man Great !!!

ReplyDeletethanku bhai :) awesome *_*

ReplyDeletei am understand easly ............

ReplyDeletebut when would we prefer kruskal's algorithm over prim's algorithm??

ReplyDeletebut when would we prefer kruskal's algorithm over prim's algorithm??

ReplyDeleteWhen we have a Sparse Graph then generally we use Kruskal's and for Dense Graph use Prim's....
