Unformatted text preview: 8/27/09 11 8/27/09 MATH 224 Discrete Mathematics Formally a graph is just a collection of unordered or ordered pairs, where for example, if {a,b} G if a, b V. Here G is the graph and V is called the set of nodes. So a graph G(V, E) is a set of objects V (of any type), which are called nodes or sometimes vertices. And E is actually the set of pairs, which are called edges or sometimes called links. The edges may be unordered pairs {a,b} or ordered pairs (a,b). With unordered pairs {a,b} and {b, a} are equivalent. But with ordered pairs the order matters so (a,b) is not the same as (b,a).
