Minimum Connector Problems and Prim’s Algorithm is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Networks and Decision Mathematics. It is part of the subtopic Trees and Minimum Connector Problems. A connector problem uses a minimum spanning tree to find the least cost to link locations or objects. These problems are often real-world scenarios. Prim’s Algorithm is a method of finding a minimum spanning tree of a weighted, non-directional network.
What is Prim’s Algorithm?
This video introduces Prim’s Algorithm as a method of finding the minimum spanning tree.
