A simple graph G = ( V , E ) consists of Ø V , the set of vertices (nodes, points) , and Ø E , the set of edges (lines) Undirected graphs are graphs where edges have no direction ( unordered pairs of V ). Example: V = {a, b, c, d, e} E = {{a,b}, {a, c}, {c, d}, {c, e}, {d, e}} Directed graphs are graphs where edges have directions, i.e., E consists of ordered pairs of V Example: V = {u, x, y, z} E = {(x, y), (x, z), (y, u), (z, x), (z, u)} a b c d e z x y u 3 ENGG1007 FCS Simple Graphs and Multigraphs Simple graphs at most one edge between any pair of vertices. Multigraphs having multiple edges between the same pair of vertices, or even with selfloops. Examples: Ø Multiple roads between same pair of cities If x , y are two vertices, and e = { x , y } is in E , then Ø x and y are adjacent Ø e is incident with x and y Ø x and y are the endpoints of e Degree ( v ) = number of edges incident with vertex v Ø deg ( y ) = 2 , deg ( u ) = 2 , deg ( x ) = 3 , deg ( z ) = 5 z x y u 4 ENGG1007 FCS Other Applications – Graph Models Acquaintanceship vertices = people edges = two people know each other Competition (tournaments) vertices = teams edges = matches (directed edges to show winners and losers) Game tree vertices = state of the game Edge = move 5 ENGG1007 FCS Graph properties: Degrees By pigeon hole principle, there exist two vertices with the same degree. For an undirected graph G = ( V , E ): e.g. sum of degrees = 3+2+5+2 = 12,  E  = 6 Proof: every edge is counted twice in counting degrees. Fact: Any undirected graph has an even number of odd degree vertices (as the sum of degrees is even) For a directed graph G = ( V , E ): z x y u 6 ENGG1007 FCS Game tree  Tic tac toe Vertices = state of the game represented by (position, whose move) position = (s1, s2, s3, s4, s5, s6, s7, s8, s9 ), where s i W { x, 0,  } Example: initial state, v0 = ( ( , , , , , , , ,  ), 0 ) v5 = ( ( x, , 0, 0, 0, , x, ,  ), x ) What are valid vertices? Assuming 0 is the first move, say vi = ( ( x, , x, 0, 0, , x, ,  ), x ) ? If ‘0’ is the first moves, number(x)=number(0)1 or number(0) say vj = ( ( x, , x, 0, 0, , x, 0,  ), x ) ?...
