# networkx.algorithms.components.is_semiconnected¶

is_semiconnected(G, topo_order=None)[source]

Returns True if the graph is semiconnected, False otherwise.

A graph is semiconnected if, and only if, for any pair of nodes, either one is reachable from the other, or they are mutually reachable.

Parameters
• G (NetworkX graph) – A directed graph.

• topo_order (list or tuple, optional) – A topological order for G (if None, the function will compute one)

Returns

semiconnected – True if the graph is semiconnected, False otherwise.

Return type

bool

Raises

Examples

>>> G=nx.path_graph(4,create_using=nx.DiGraph())
>>> print(nx.is_semiconnected(G))
True
>>> G=nx.DiGraph([(1, 2), (3, 2)])
>>> print(nx.is_semiconnected(G))
False
