Use the strong form of mathematical induction on k, a vertex label, the result being clearly true for k = 1. Suppose k > 1 and the result is true for all i in the interval 1 ~ i < k; thus, there is a path from vertex 1 to the vertex labeled i which uses only edges required by the algorithm. We must prove the result for k: We must prove that there is a path from 1 to the vertex with label k which uses only edges required by the algorithm. Vertex k was so labeled because the algorithm found this vertex unlabeled but adjacent to a previously labeled vertex i. At the time a vertex is labeled, the algorithm chooses the smallest unused label, so i < k. By the induction hypothesis, there is a path from 1 to i using edges required by the algorithm; also, the algorithm uses the edge ik to label vertex k.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
