I have to demonstrate Prim's algorithm for an assignment and I'm surprised that I found two different solutions, with different MSTs as an outcome. Now I now that shouldn't happen, so I wonder what I did wrong ?
The first solution (using Prim's) is visiting the nodes in the following order: v0,v1,v8,v7,v6,v3,v2,v4,v5 Here the MST has a weight of 37, which is the same result that I got by using Kruskal's on the same graph.
The second solution (again using Prim's) however is the following order of visited notes: v0,v1,v3,v2,v7,v8,v6,v4,v5 , which leads to a MST with a weight of 39. How can this be ? Where is my mistake ?
Thanks in advance
