mstBird: Bird rule for minimum cost spanning tree problems

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/mstBird.R

Description

Given a graph with at least one minimum cost spanning tree, the mstBird function divides the cost of the tree obtained with Prim's algorithm among the agents. For that purpose it uses the Bird rule, where each agent pays the cost of the arc that connects him to the tree source.

Usage

1
mstBird(nodes, arcs)

Arguments

nodes

vector containing the nodes of the graph, identified by a number that goes from 1 to the order of the graph.

arcs

matrix with the list of arcs of the graph. Each row represents one arc. The first two columns contain the two endpoints of each arc and the third column contains their weights.

Value

mstBird returns a matrix with the agents and their costs.
