The number of spanning trees in graphs (networks) is a crucial invariant, and it is also an important measure of the reliability of a network. Spanning trees are special subgraphs of a graph that have several important properties. First, T must span G, which means it must contain every vertex in graph G, if T is a spanning tree of graph G. T needs to be a subgraph of G, second. Stated differently, any edge present in T needs to be present in G as well. Third, G is the same as T if each edge in T is likewise present in G. In path-finding algorithms like Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm and A* search algorithm, spanning trees play an essential part. In those approaches, spanning trees are computed as component components. Protocols for network routing also take advantage of it. In numerous techniques and applications, minimum spanning trees are highly beneficial. Computer networks, electrical grids, and water networks all frequently use them. They are also utilized in significant algorithms like the min-cut max-flow algorithm and in graph issues like the travelling salesperson problem. In this paper, we use matrix analysis and linear algebra techniques to obtain simple formulas for the number of spanning trees of certain kinds of cyclic snake graphs.
