Graphs
Graphs  Network
Example 1  Web graph
•
Each vertex is a web page
•
Each edge is one or more links from a page to another
Directed graph
 all edges have direction
•
e.g. street map, prereq graph (on Rutgers CS website)
Neighbors of a vertex
•
y is a neighbor of x if
edge, y is adjacent to x
o
neighbor = adjacent
•
(x) > (y)
o
x is not
a neighbor of y, not adjacent to y
Path
from x to y is sequence of edges without repetition
•
p1 > p2 (simple edge is a path)
•
p4 > p6 > p4 is a path, actually a
cycle
o
cycle is a path with the same start and end points
o
p3 > p5 > p6 > p3 = (p3, p5, p6, p3)
indegree
 number of edges into a vertex
•
for p6, indegree = 2
outdegree
 number of edges out of p6
•
for p6, indegree = 2
Degree
 int + out = 4
Facebook graph is
undirected
•
‘symmetric’ relationship
o
e.g. friendship on facebook
•
(p1, p3) in an undirected graph:
o
p1 is adjacent to p3, and vice versa
Directed  ALL edges have direction
Undirected  NO edge has direction
Cliques  group within a graph
Can have weights at the edges  edge “weight”
•
e.g. distance in a street graph
•
e.g. molecules bonds
o
undirected, weights would be bond strength
(double bond, triple bond)
