O(N 1.5 ) divide-and-conquer technique for Minimum Spanning Tree problem Step 1: Divide the graph into N sub-graph by clustering. Step 2: Solve each sub-problem separately using Prim's algorithm (quadratic complexity) Step 3: Merge the sub-solutions: Construct a meta graph where each node corresponds to one cluster Solve MST for the meta graph Add links from the meta graph to the original graph to complete the solution
