Discrete Mathematics Chapter 9 Graphs §9.1 Graphs and Graph Models What are Graphs? General meaning in everyday math: A plot or chart of numerical data using a coordinate system. Not Technical meaning in discrete mathematics: A particular class of discrete structures (to be de°ned) that is useful for representing relations and has a convenient webby-looking graphical representation.

Discrete Mathematics Chapter 9 Graphs §9.1 Graphs and Graph Models Simple Graphs Correspond to symmetric binary relations R . Visual Representation of a Simple Graph A simple graph G = ( V , E ) consists of: 1 A set V of vertices or nodes ( V corresponds to the universe of the relation R ). 2 A set E of edges / arcs / links: unordered pairs of [distinct?] elements u , v 2 V , such that uRv .
