In the computer networks, it is necessary for one device in the computer network to send data to all the other devices. In this paper, broadcast routing algorithms that aim to minimize the cost of the routing path are proposed. A minimum cost broadcast routing scheme based on spanning tree algorithm is presented. Thus, we present a genetic algorithm to find the broadcast routing tree of a given network in terms of its links for using it to solve this problem. The algorithm uses the connection matrix of a given network to find the spanning trees, and also is based on the weight of the links to obtain the minimum spanning tree. An example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of this algorithm over conventional algorithms.
