Topological Sort It is a sorting of the vertices such that if there is an edge (i,j) then i should appear in the sorting before j. An example Topological sort for the Graph above would be (A,B,C,D,E,F) or (A,C,B,D,E,F). (C,E,A,B,D,F) would not be a topological sort because there is an edge where A goes to C but C appears before A in the sorting. A topological sort is useful for scheduling of events that depend on each other. A topological sort would be a possible schedule of the execution, for example when building a house.

Topological Sort (Foundation, Grass, Walls, Electric, Piping, Windows, End) Algorithm: Topological Sorting Input: A diagraph G with n vertices Output: An array “sorted” with the vertices in topological order. // We use a stack tom store the vertices with no dependencies Stack = {}
// Computed indegree of vertices. for each edge(u,w) v -> w indegree[w]++ // Put vertices without incident edges (no dependencies) in stack for all v in G do if indegree(v) == 0 push v in stack end end i = 0; // index of sorted while Stack is not empty u <- Stack.pop() // u has no dependencies // add to “sorted” Sorted[i] = u; i++;

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
