Use the greedy algorithm to find a Hamiltonian circuit starting at vertex A in the weighted

To determine

To determine a Hamiltonian circuit starting at vertex A in the weighted graph using the greedy algorithm.

**Given information:**

Given, weighted graph is:

â€ƒâ€ƒ

**Calculation:**

A path in a Hamiltonian graph is said to be a Hamiltonian Circuit if it begins and ends at the same vertex and passes through each vertex of a graph exactly once.

The greedy algorithm states to travel along a connected edge that has the smallest weight that is not yet visited. This process continues till all the vertices are visited and returned to the starting vertex.

Here, the vertex A is selected.

Vertex A is of degree 6 and the weights of the connected edges are 4, 9, 5, 7, 3, 4

Hence, as per the Greedy Algorithm the edge with weight 3 is selected i.e. path reaches F.

Vertex F is of degree 6 and the weights of the connected edges are 3, 2, 3, 5, 5, 7

Hence, as per the Greedy Algorithm the edge with weight 2 is selected i.e. path reaches B.

Vertex B is of degree 6 and the weights of the connected edges are 4, 4, 5, 1, 2, 7

Hence, as per the Greedy Algorithm the edge with weight 1 is selected i.e. path reaches E...
