networkx.algorithms.dominance.dominance_frontiers¶

dominance_frontiers(G, start)[source]

Returns the dominance frontiers of all nodes of a directed graph.

Parameters
• G (a DiGraph or MultiDiGraph) – The graph where dominance is to be computed.

• start (node) – The start node of dominance computation.

Returns

df – A dict containing the dominance frontiers of each node reachable from start as lists.

Return type

dict keyed by nodes

Raises

Examples

>>> G = nx.DiGraph([(1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 5), (3, 4), (4, 5)])
>>> sorted((u, sorted(df)) for u, df in nx.dominance_frontiers(G, 1).items())
[(1, []), (2, [5]), (3, [5]), (4, [5]), (5, [])]
