Recently external memory graph algorithms have received considerable attention because massive graphs arise naturally in many applications involving massive data sets. Even though a large number of I/O-efficient graph algorithms have been developed, a number of fundamental problems still remain open. In this paper we develop an improved algorithm for the problem of computing a minimum spanning tree of a general graph, as well as new algorithms for the single source shortest paths and the multi-way graph separation problems on planar graphs.
