+The Euclidean Minimum Spanning Tree problem is widely used in machine learning
and data mining applications. Given a set \f$S\f$ of points in \f$\mathbf{R}^d\f$,
our task is to compute lowest weight spanning tree in the complete graph on \f$S\f$
-with edge weights given by the Euclidean distance between points.
+with edge weights given by the Euclidean distance between points.
Among other applications, the EMST can be used to compute hierarchical clusterings
of data. A <em>single-linkage clustering</em> can be obtained from the EMST by deleting
all edges longer than a given cluster length. This technique is also referred to as a <em>Friends-of-Friends</em> clustering in the astronomy literature.
