pgr_kruskalDD
— Catchament nodes using Kruskal’s algorithm.
Availability
Version 3.0.0
New Official function
Description¶
Using Kruskal’s algorithm, extracts the nodes that have aggregate costs less than
or equal to the value Distance
from a root vertex (or vertices) within
the calculated minimum spanning tree.
The main Characteristics are:
It’s implementation is only on undirected graph.
Process is done only on edges with positive costs.
The total weight of all the edges in the tree or forest is minimized.
When the graph is connected
The resulting edges make up a tree
When the graph is not connected,
Finds a minimum spanning tree for each connected component.
The resulting edges make up a forest.
Kruskal’s running time: \(O(E * log E)\)
Returned tree nodes from a root vertex are on Depth First Search order.
Depth First Search running time: \(O(E + V)\)
