If the graph G has m edges, and we sort the edges in increasing order, then Kruskal's algorithm has complexity O(mlog m), since we can sort the edges using an optimal algorithm such as Mergesort having O(mlog m) complexity, and we can check for cycles with complexity O(mlog m) if we use the union and find algorithms discussed earlier.
