Minimum Spanning Tree Update Question in a Connected Graph

Subject Computer Science Data Structures and Algorithms

Question

Let a connected undirected graph G = (V, E) with edge weights and a minimum spanning tree T of G be given. Suppose the weight of an edge (u, v) in G is increased. Describe an O(V + E) algorithm to find a minimum spanning tree with this modification in edge weights.

Observation – if the edge (u,v) doesn’t belong to T, then MST remains the same as before the modification.
If instead the edge (u,v) belongs to T, then the MST might be updated.
We build a set C1 by marking all vertices that are reachable in T from u but don’t go through v. This task can be achieved using either DFS or BFS....
