Recently external memory graph problems 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.
The results in this paper fall in two main classes. First we develop an improved algorithm for
the problem of computing a minimum spanning tree (MST) of a general undirected graph. Second
we show that on planar undirected graphs the problems of computing a multi-way graph separation
and single source shortest paths (SSSP) can be reduced I/O-efficiently to planar breadth-first search
