Graph Algorithms: Prim’s Algorithm in Python

Minimum Spanning Tree (MST) algorithms find the shortest path that connects all the points in a graph. Tree algorithms that find minimum spanning trees are useful in network design, taxonomies, or cluster analysis. On PythonAlgos, we’ve already covered one MST algorithm, Kruskal’s algorithm. Prim’s algorithm is similar to Kruskal’s algorithm. Whereas Kruskal’s adds to theContinue reading “Graph Algorithms: Prim’s Algorithm in Python”

Dijkstra’s Algorithm in 5 Steps with Python

Dijkstra’s Algorithm is one of the most well-known graph algorithms. It is also one of the hardest to spell and pronounce. It’s pronounced “dike-struss” algorithm. Dijkstra’s algorithm is a shortest path algorithm with many variations. In this post we’ll be going over two Python implementations of Dijkstra’s algorithm. The first is the naive implementation, theContinue reading “Dijkstra’s Algorithm in 5 Steps with Python”
