edge_boundary

edge_boundary(G, nbunch1, nbunch2=None)[source]

Return the edge boundary.

Edge boundaries are edges that have only one end in the given set of nodes.

Parameters:
  • G (graph) – A networkx graph
  • nbunch1 (list, container) – Interior node set
  • nbunch2 (list, container) – Exterior node set. If None then it is set to all of the nodes in G not in nbunch1.
Returns:

elist – List of edges

Return type:

list

Notes

Nodes in nbunch1 and nbunch2 that are not in G are ignored.

nbunch1 and nbunch2 are usually meant to be disjoint, but in the interest of speed and generality, that is not required here.
