## Section 14.4

Trees

### Remember

A graph is connected if there is a path between any two vertices.

Otherwise we say that the graph is disconnected.

### Remember

AB is the only bridge in this graph

Every edge is a bridge in this graph

A Bridge is an edge that when removed, it disconnects the graph.

### Terminology

This graph is not a tree because BC, CD, and DB are not bridges.

This graph is not a tree because it is not connected.

A TREE is a connected graph in which every edge is a bridge.

### Terminology

These are the tree possible spanning trees.

There are 3 possible spanning trees for this graph

A SPANNING TREE is a tree created from another graph by removing edges while still maintaining a path to each vertex.

Azalea

(problem 28 p.971) Lucille wants to install an irrigation system to water all six of her flowerbeds. Use Kruskal’s algorithm to find the smallest length of pipes she would need to install.

### Irrigation System

Bougainvillea

• Note that we do not select the edge Jasmine – Azalea (35) since selecting that edge would create a redundancy in the solution (two ways to get water to Azaleas).
