Online Construction of Minimum Spanning Trees in Random Weighted Graphs

In this talk an online variant of the minimum spanning tree problem in random weighted graphs will be presented. We assume that the input graph is complete and the edge weights have uniform distribution over [0,1]. An algorithm receives the edges one by one in random order and has to decide immediately whether to include the current edge into the spanning tree or to reject it. As a performance measure we consider the expected competitive ratio E[r], where r=ALG/OPT. As our main result, we propose an online algorithm and show that its expected competitive ratio is O(1).
