# Cmsc 341 CMSC 341 Lecture 21 Graphs (Introduction) Prof. Neary Based on slides from previous iterations of this course (Dr. Katherine Gibson) Basic Graph Definitions A graph G = (V,E) consists of a finite set of vertices, V, and a finite set of edges, E. Each edge is a pair (v, w) where v, w V V and E are sets, so each vertex v V is unique, and each edge e E is unique. Edges are sometimes called arcs or lines Vertices are sometimes called nodes or points UMBC CMSC 341 Graphs (Introduction) 2 Graph Example A vertex represents an airport and stores the three-letter airport code An edge represents a flight route between two airports and stores the mileage of the route

An edge may also have: Weight or cost -- an associated value Label -- a unique name The degree of a vertex, v, is the number of vertices adjacent to v. Degree is also called valence. UMBC CMSC 341 Graphs (Introduction) 13 Degrees For directed graphs vertex w is adjacent to vertex v if and only if (v, w) E In-degree of a vertex w is the number of edges (v,w) X has in-degree 3 a V b d

every vertex to every other vertex A directed graph is strongly connected if there is a path from every vertex to every other vertex A directed graph is weakly connected if there would be a path from every vertex to every other vertex, disregarding the direction of the edges A complete graph is one in which there is an edge between every pair of vertices A connected component of a graph is any maximal connected subgraph. Connected components are sometimes simply called components UMBC CMSC 341 Graphs (Introduction) 15 Graph Algorithms Graph Traversal Breadth First Search (BFS) Depth First Search (DFS) Uniform Cost Search (UCS) A/A* Search Etc...

Has some associated algorithms to be discussed. 8/3/2007 UMBC CMSC 341 Graphs

19 Adjacency Matrix Implementation Uses array of size |V| |V| where each entry (i ,j) is boolean q TRUE if there is an edge from vertex i to vertex j q FALSE otherwise q store weights when edges are weighted Very simple, but large space requirement = O(|V|2) Appropriate if the graph is dense. Otherwise, most of the entries in the table are FALSE. For example, if a graph is used to represent a street map like Manhattan in which most streets run E/W or N/S, each intersection is attached to only 4 streets and |E| < 4*|V|. If there are 3000 intersections, the table has 9,000,000 entries of which only 12,000 are TRUE. 8/3/2007 UMBC CMSC 341 Graphs 20 Undirected Graph / Adjacency Matrix 1 2

Adjacency Lists are the commonly used representation. The lists may be stored in a data structure or in the Vertex object itself. q Vector of lists: A vector of lists of vertices. The ith element of the vector is a list, Li, of the vertices adjacent to vi. If the graph is sparse, then the space requirement is O( |E| + |V| ), linear in the size of the graph If the graph is dense, then the space requirement is O( |V|2 ) 8/3/2007 UMBC CMSC 341 Graphs 25
