A graph G comprises a set V of vertices and a set E of edges Each edge in E is a pair (a,b) of vertices in V If (a,b) is an edge in E, we connect a and b in the graph drawing of G Example: V={1,2,3,4,5,6,7} E={(1,2),(1,3),(2,4). 1 (4,5),(3,5),(4,5), 2 3 (5,6),(6,7)} 4 5 6 i+1 is an edge for each i= 1;:::;k 1. The length of a path P is the number of edges in P. A chord in a path is an edge connecting two non-consecutive vertices. A chordless path is a path without chords. A graph Gis connected if every pair of distinct vertices is joined by a path. Otherwise it is disconnected

- In graph theory, a path in a graph is a finite or infinite sequence of edges which joins a sequence of vertices which, by most definitions, are all distinct (and since the vertices are distinct, so are the edges). A directed path (sometimes called dipath) in a directed graph is a finite or infinite sequence of edges which joins a sequence of distinct vertices, but with the added restriction.
- Proof. Every connected graph with at least two vertices has an edge. In an acyclic graph, the endpoints of a maximum path have only one neighbour on the path and therefore have degree 1.

Consequently, the number of vertices with odd degree is even. Proof. Let S = P v∈V deg( v). Notice that in counting S, we count each edge exactly twice. Thus, S = 2 |E| (the sum of the degrees is twice the number o

The two graphs in Fig 1.4 have the same degree sequence, but they can be readily seen to be non-isom in several ways.

Prove that this property holds if and only if the graph has no cycles of odd length. Solution: Separate into connected components.

Graph theory-based approaches model the brain as a complex network, which is represented graphically as a collection of nodes and edges, where the nodes demonstrate anatomical elements (i.e., brain regions), and edges indicate the relationships between nodes (i.e., connectivity). An accurate method of defining the nodes and edges is crucial for network construction, with current studies focussing on delineating the brain networks on a macroscale by deriving regions-of-interest from an. * Graph theory is a valuable framework to study the organization of functional and anatomical connections in the brain*. Its use for comparing network topologies, however, is not without difficulties. Graph measures may be influenced by the number of nodes (N) and the average degree (k) of the network. The explicit form of that influence depends on the type of network topology, which is usually unknown for experimental data. Direct comparisons of graph measures between empirical.

* An empty graph is a graph of size 0*. Note that a graph must have at least one vertex by de nition. But a graph can certainly have no edges! For now we are not permitting loops, so trivial graphs are necessarily empty. 2.4 Subgraph De nition. Let Gbe a graph. His a subgraph of Gif V(H) V(G) and E(H) E(G). Example. Let G 3 be the graph with V = f1;2;3gand E= ff1;2g;f2;3g;f3;1ggThen G 1;G 2 are subgraphs of G 3 but Graph theory is the study of mathematical objects known as graphs, which consist of vertices (or nodes) connected by edges. (In the figure below, the vertices are the numbered circles, and the edges join the vertices.) A basic graph of 3-Cycle. Any scenario in which one wishes to examine the structure of a network of connected objects is potentially a problem for graph theory

As it is a directed graph, each edge bears an arrow mark that shows its direction. Note that in a directed graph, 'ab' is different from 'ba'. Simple Graph. A graph with no loops and no parallel edges is called a simple graph. The maximum number of edges possible in a single graph with 'n' vertices is n C 2 where n C 2 = n(n - 1)/2 n, is the graph of order n and size 0. The graph N 1 is called the trivial graph. The complete graph of order n, denoted by K n, is the graph of order n that has all possible edges. We observe that K 1 is a trivial graph too. The path graph of order n, denoted by P n = (V;E), is the graph that has as a set of edges E = fx 1x 2;x 2x 3;:::;x n 1x ng nected graph whose edges are assigned lengths according to independent identically distributed random variables is developed from two directions.

- A graph 'G' is defined as G = (V, E) Where V is a set of all vertices and E is a set of all edges in the graph. Example 1 In the above example, ab, ac, cd, and bd are the edges of the graph. Similarly, a, b, c, and d are the vertices of the graph

- This class models an undirected edge for a graph. The edge has two vertices and a length. The length is the Euclidean distance between the two vertices of the Edge. Edges are sorted by length using the comparable interface. To associate a different cost to the edge (other than length) you can use the setCost() method, which will overwrite the length field with the new cost. NOTE: These are.

ACFHI, ABFHI, and ABDHI. Increasing an edge length will increase the length of the shortest path if and only if it is in every shortest path { this is only the edge HI. Decreasing the length of an edge will decrease the length of a shortest path if it is in any shortest path, thus, the edges AB, AC, CF, BF, BD, FH, DH, and HI all work. 2.2. What is the length 'of the longest path from Ato I? For which edges ewil are represented by points (or squares, circles, triangles etc.) and edges are represented by lines connecting vertices.4 2.2 A self-loop is an edge in a graph Gthat contains exactly one vertex. That is, an edge that is a one element subset of the vertex set. Self-loops are illustrated by loops at the vertex in question.

Graph theory is the study of dots and lines: sets and pairwise relations between their elements. Deﬁnition. A graph G is an ordered pair (V(G), E(G)), where V(G) is a set of vertices, E(G) is a set of edges, and a edge is said to be incident to one or two vertices, called its ends. If e is incident to vertices u and v, we write e = uv = vu Definition: An Eulerian circuit is a circuit which uses every edge in the graph. By a theorem of Euler, there exists an Eulerian circuit if and only if each vertex has even degree. Hence, the maximum circuit length for $n$ vertices is $\frac{n(n-1)}{2}$ when $n$ is odd (the total number of edges), and $\frac{n(n-1)}{2}-\frac{n}{2}=\frac{n(n-2)}{2}$ when $n$ is even (we can just delete one edge for each two vertices to make the degree of every vertex even) Further details concerning the setting of attributes can be found in the description of the DOT language.. At present, most device-independent units are either inches or points, which we take as 72 points per inch. Note: Some attributes, such as dir or arrowtail, are ambiguous when used in DOT with an undirected **graph** since the head and tail of an **edge** are meaningless * Complement of Graph in Graph Theory- Complement of a graph G is a graph G' with all the vertices of G in which there is an edge between two vertices v and w if and only if there exist no edge between v and w in the original graph G*. Complement of Graph Examples and Problems In a weighted graph a weight can be assigned to each edge. The size of a graph is equal to the number of vertices of the graph. A graph is connected if any vertex can be reached from any other vertex. In a complete graph all possible edges exist

This mode allows you to draw new nodes and/or edges. Ways you can interact with the graph: Clicking anywhere on the graph canvas creates a new node. Clicking on a node starts the drawing process of a new edge. To cancel the new edge, click anywhere on the canvas. To finish drawing the edge, click on the desired neighbour. Edit mode. This mode allows you to edit nodes' labels and edges' costs. Cut Edge (Bridge) A bridge is a single edge whose removal disconnects a graph. The above graph G1 can be split up into two components by removing one of the edges bc or bd. Therefore, edge bc or bd is a bridge. The above graph G2 can be disconnected by removing a single edge, cd. Therefore, edge cd is a bridge In mathematics, and more specifically in graph theory, a vertex (plural vertices) or node is the fundamental unit of which graphs are formed: an undirected graph consists of a set of vertices and a set of edges (unordered pairs of vertices), while a directed graph consists of a set of vertices and a set of arcs (ordered pairs of vertices). In a diagram of a graph, a vertex is usually represented by a circle with a label, and an edge is represented by a line or arrow extending from one vertex. Then $E'$ is an edge cut of $G$. We define $\lambda(G)$ to be the size of the minimum edge cut. As a special case, we define $\lambda(G) = 0$ for the graph with one vertex and no edges. Theorem 25.13 For all graphs $G=(V,E)$, \begin{equation*} \kappa(G) \leq \lambda(G) \leq \min_{v\in V} \deg(v) \end{equation*} This is a bit tricker than it looks. We'll deal with simple graphs here. The $1$ element simple graph is a special case easily dealt with: $\kappa(G) = \lambda(G) \min_{v\in V} \deg(v.

- Note that the graph is not the same as the underlying polygon|things like edge length and vertex angles are not considered in the graph. So in some sense, the graphs of a polygon is the polygon without its geometry. This is perhaps not so interesting for polygons, but one can do the same for polyhedra (e.g., the Platonic solids) where looking at the analogous graphs is very useful in the study.
- A digraph is connected if the underlying graph is connected. (The underlying graph of a digraph is produced by removing the orientation of the arcs to produce edges, that is, replacing each arc $(v,w)$ by an edge $\{v,w\}$. Even if the digraph is simple, the underlying graph may have multiple edges.) A digraph is strongly connected if for every.

The set V (or V(G) to emphasize that it belongs to the graph G) is called the vertex set of G

A complete graph is one in which an edge exists between any 2 vertices, that is, all the entries in the adjancency matrix are 1. A complete graph with nvertices is denoted as K n.

Let e = uv be an edge. We say that the edge e is incident with the vertices u;v, or say that u;v. * Lets have a look at the following graph: As you can see we have nine nodes*. If we start at the leftmost node A, the following DFS level could be possible: We have two back edges while iterating: (B , A), therefore we found a circle with length 8 (D , A), therefore we found a circle with length 8; However, the shortest circle has length 5. It's. In an undirected connected simple graph G = (V, E), an edge e ∈ E is called a cut edge if G − e has at least two nonempty connected components. Prove: An edge e is a cut edge in G if and only if e does not belong to any simple circuit in G. This needs to be proved in each direction. Typically I would write where I am for a problem like this, but I have no idea how to approach this proof.

A graph G is a collection, E, of distinct unordered pairs of distinct elements of a set V.The elements of V are called vertices or nodes, and the pairs in E are called edges or arcs or the graph. (If a pair (w,v) can occur several times in E we call the structure.
- Definition 5.7.2 If a graph $G$ is connected, any set of edges whose removal disconnects the graph is called a cut. $G$ has edge connectivity $k$ if there is a cut of size $k$ but no smaller cut; the edge connectivity of a one-vertex graph is undefined. $G$ is $k$-edge-connected if the edge connectivity of $G$ is at least $k$. The edge connectivity is denoted $\lambda(G)$. $\square
- If all of the edges in a graph are directed, the graph is said to be a directed graph, also called digraph. If all of the edges in a graph are undirected , the graph is said to be — you guessed.

In fact, Breadth First Search is used to find paths of any length given a starting node.

Theorem 9.2: Given the integers n,δ,κ and λ, there is a graph G of order n such that δ(G) = δ,κ(G) = κ, and λ(G) = λ if and only if one of th In graph theory, a matching in a graph is a set of edges that do not have a set of common vertices. In other words, a matching is a graph where each node has either zero or one edge incident to it. Graph matching is not to be confused with graph isomorphism. Graph isomorphism checks if two graphs are the same whereas a matching is a particular subgraph of a graph (All partite sets have size dn=reor bn=rc.)

Thus m≤ (n−2)2 4 + n−1 = n2 4. Now, if m = j n2 4 k, then all the above inequalities must be equalities. In particular, we must have d(x)+d(y) = n nThe Length of a path of a graph is the number of edges in it. nA path having n vertices is denoted by P n. nA path using k distinct vertices has length k -1. CS218 © Peter Lo 2004 11 Connected & Disconnected Graph n A graph is Connectedif every pair of its vertices is connected by a path. n A graph is Disconnectedif there is not a path between every pair of vertices A walk of length k in a graph G is a succession of k edges of G of the form uv, vw, wx, . . . , yz. We denote this walk by uvwx. . yz and refer to it as a walk between u and z. Trail and Path If all the edges (but no necessarily all the vertices) of a walk are different, then the walk is called a trail. If, in addition, all the vertices are difficult, then the trail is called path Theorem 4.1 Let vbe a vertex of the random graph G(n;p).

The theorem follows from Theorem ??. Theorem 4.1 was for one vertex. The following corollary deals with all vertices ** The graph after adding these edges is shown to the right**. The next shortest edge is from Corvallis to Newport at 52 miles, but adding that edge would give Corvallis degree 3. Continuing on, we can skip over any edge pair that contains Salem or Corvallis, since they both already have degree 2

1. Matchings, covers, and Gallai's theorem Let G = (V,E) be a graph.1 A stable set is a subset C of V such that e ⊆ C for each edge e of G. A vertex cover is a subset W of V such that e∩ W 6= ∅ for each edge e of G. It is not diﬃcult to show that for each U ⊆ V: (1) U is a stable set ⇐⇒ V \U is a vertex cover Then every edge in a maximal matching will be incident to a vertex in the K k 1. Thus, the size of the maximal matching on this graph is k 1. This graph has k 1 2 + (n k+ 1)(k 1) edges, and it is the extremal graph. 3. [page 195, #9 ] Show that deleting at most (m s)(n t)=sedges from a K m;n will never destroy all its K s;t subgraphs When a planar graph is drawn without edges crossing, the edges and vertices of the graph divide the plane into regions. We will call each region a face. The graph above has 3 faces (yes, we do include the outside region as a face). The number of faces does not change no matter how you draw the graph (as long as you do so without the edges crossing), so it makes sense to ascribe the number of faces as a property of the planar graph one edge from each star in L. Example. The graph below has 13 vertices. A matching Of size 4 ap- pears in bold, and adding the solid edges yields an edge cover Of size 9. The dashed edges are not needed in the cover. The edge cover consists Of four stars; from each we extract one edge (bold) to form the matching. Case 2 8.4.32. Theorem. (Thomassen 11994b)) Planar graphs are 5-choosable This theorem is almost obvious, but we state it for completeness - it is enough to note that the graph G is bipartite to be able to use any and all theorems relating to bipartite graphs for any subgraphs we take of G. The concept of coloring vertices and edges comes up in graph theory quite a bit

Theorem 3 A graph is planar if and only if it does not contain a subdivision of K 5 and K 3,3 as a subgraph. Graph Contraction . In the following figure contradiction is done by bringing the vertex w closer and closer to v until w and v coincide and then coalescing multiple edges into a single edge. Bring vertex w closer to v. Coalesce vertex v and vertex w. Finally, coalesce multiple edges. Handshaking Theorem for Directed Graphs (Theorem 3) Let G = (V;E) be a graph with directed edges. Then P v2V deg (v) = P v2V deg+(v) = jEj. Special Graphs Complete Graphs A complete graph on n vertices, denoted by K n, is a simple graph that contains exactly one edge between each pair of distinct vertices. Has n(n 1) 2 edges. Cycles A cycle A walk of length k in a graph G is a succession of k A bipartite graph is a graph whose vertex-set can be split into two sets in such a way that each edge of the graph joins a vertex in first set to a vertex in second set. The examples of bipartite graphs are: Complete Bipartite Graph. A complete bipartite graph is a bipartite graph in which each vertex in the first set is joined to each. edges. The simple graph with n vertices and n 2 edges is called the complete graph, denoted by Kn. The simple graph G on n vertices with 0 edge is called the empty graph. The graph with 0 vertices and 0 edges is called the null graph. K 3 K4 5 K 6 Figure 3: Complete graphs K3, K4, K5, and K6
