is_distance_regular(G)[source]

Returns True if the graph is distance regular, False otherwise.

A connected graph G is distance-regular if for any nodes x,y and any integers i,j=0,1,…,d (where d is the graph diameter), the number of vertices at distance i from x and distance j from y depends only on i,j and the graph distance between x and y, independently of the choice of x and y.

Parameters

G (Networkx graph (undirected))

Returns

True if the graph is Distance Regular, False otherwise

Return type

bool

Examples

>>> G=nx.hypercube_graph(6)
>>> nx.is_distance_regular(G)
True

Notes

For undirected and simple graphs only
