Abstract—Minimum Routing Cost Spanning Tree (MRCT) is one of spanning tree optimization problems having several applications in network design. In general case, the problem is proved to be NP-hard. The paper uses genetic (GA) approach to solve MRCT problem. Computational experiment results show that GA approach outperforms current approximation algorithms.
