I am attempting to implement a minimum spanning tree problem on the D wave quantum computing architecture. I have seen many graph problems implemented, such as a graph coloring example. There are also a variety of Traveling Salesman Tutorials available. What would be the best approach for making a functioning application of the MST on a D Wave system? Are there any related tutorials or examples to this problem other than the ones mentioned?

Well first you will have to specify the MST in a QUBO/Ising formulation. In this article showing formulations for different types of problems, section 8.1 is about the MST with a maximal degree constraint. This paper contains results of Spanning Tree calculations.

When you have the formulation, you map it on the Chimera Graph if the hardware size is not limiting. Otherwise, one would try a divide and conquer approach to solve the optimization problem.
