What is a Network? Network graph Informally a graph is a set of nodesjoined by a set of lines or arrows.Network/GraphTheory Representing a problem as a graph canprovide a different point of viewRepresenting a problem as a graph canmake a problem much simpler More accurately, it can provide theappropriate tools for solving the problemWhat makes a problem graph-like?

Definition: GraphDefinitions G is an ordered triple G: (V, E, f)– V is a set of nodes, points, or vertices.– E is a set, whose elements are known asedges or lines.– f is a function Vertex– Basic Element– Drawn as a node or a dot.– Vertex set of G is usually denoted by V(G), or V Edge– A set of two elements– Drawn as a line connecting two vertices, calledend vertices, or endpoints.– The edge set of G is usually denoted by E(G), orE. maps each element of E to an unordered pair of vertices in V.Simple GraphsExampleSimple graphs are graphs without multipleedges or self-loops. V: {1,2,3,4,5,6} E: d Graph (digraph)Weighted graphs is a graph for which each edge has anassociated weight, usually given by a weightfunction w: E R. Edges have directions– An edge is an ordered pair of nodesloopmultiple arcarc1node1.

Structures and structuralmetrics Graph structures are used to isolateinteresting or important sections of agraphStructural metrics provide a measurementof a structural property of a graph Global metrics refer to a whole graphLocal metrics refer to a single node in a graphConnectivity a graph is connected if– you can get from any node to any other byfollowing a sequence of edges OR– any two nodes are connected by a path.Graph structures Identify interesting sections of a graph Interesting because they form a significantdomain-specific structure, or because theysignificantly contribute to graph propertiesA subset of the nodes and edges in agraph that possess certain characteristics,or relate to each other in particular waysComponent Every disconnected graph can be splitup into a number of connectedcomponents. A directed graph is strongly connected ifthere is a directed path from any node to anyother node.DegreeDegree (Directed Graphs) Number of edges incident on a node In-degree: Number of edges entering Out-degree: Number of edges leaving Degree indeg outdegoutdeg(1) 2indeg(1) 0outdeg(2) 2indeg(2) 2The degree of 5 is 3outdeg(3) 1indeg(3) 4

Planar Graphs Can be drawn on a plane such that no two edgesintersect K4 is the largest complete graph that is planarSpecial Subgraphs:Subgraphs: CliquesA clique is a maximum completeconnected subgraph.ABCDEFGHISpanning tree Let G be a connected graph. Then aspanning tree in G is a subgraph of Gthat includes every node and is also atree.Subgraph Vertex and edge sets are subsets ofthose of G– a supergraph of a graph G is a graph thatcontains G as a subgraph.Spanning subgraph Subgraph H has the same vertex set asG.– Possibly not all the edges– “H spans G”.Isomorphism Bijection, i.e., a one-to-one mapping:f : V(G) - V(H)u and v from G are adjacent if and onlyif f(u) and f(v) are adjacent in H. If an isomorphism can be constructedbetween two graphs, then we say thosegraphs are isomorphic.
