This thesis presents two algorithms dealing with problems in two classic algorithm areas in computer science. The first algorithm presents a simple solution to the selection problem. The sequential computing model form of this selection algorithm is presented first followed by a general parallel computing model version; The second algorithm is a relatively simple bookkeeping approximation solution to the Steiner tree problem in graphs. The problem presented deals with determining the shortest tree connecting Steiner nodes in a graph that has no direct connections between the Steiner nodes. Both algorithms are described and analyzed in detail with an appropriate running example to illustrate the actions of the algorithms.
