build_auxiliary_node_connectivity
(G)[source]¶ Creates a directed graph D from an undirected graph G to compute flow based node connectivity.
For an undirected graph G having
n
nodes andm
edges we derive a directed graph D with2n
nodes and2m+n
arcs by replacing each original nodev
with two nodesvA
,vB
linked by an (internal) arc in D. Then for each edge (u
,v
) in G we add two arcs (uB
,vA
) and (vB
,uA
) in D. Finally we set the attribute capacity = 1 for each arc in D 1.For a directed graph having
