While in the last years much theoretical work about external memory minimum spanning trees was done, the practical realization of the designed algorithms was neglected. It is the goal of my Bachelor thesis to fill this gap, i.e., we will show that the computation of minimum spanning trees of very large graphs is possible efficiently not only in theory but also in practice.
