find_induced_nodes¶

find_induced_nodes(G, s, t, treewidth_bound=9223372036854775807)[source]

Returns the set of induced nodes in the path from s to t.

Parameters: G (graph) – A chordal NetworkX graph s (node) – Source node to look for induced nodes t (node) – Destination node to look for induced nodes treewith_bound (float) – Maximum treewidth acceptable for the graph H. The search for induced nodes will end as soon as the treewidth_bound is exceeded. I – The set of induced nodes in the path from s to t in G Set of nodes NetworkXError – The algorithm does not support DiGraph, MultiGraph and MultiDiGraph. If the input graph is an instance of one of these classes, a NetworkXError is raised. The algorithm can only be applied to chordal graphs. If the input graph is found to be non-chordal, a NetworkXError is raised.

Examples

>>> import networkx as nx
>>> G=nx.Graph()
>>> G = nx.generators.classic.path_graph(10)
>>> I = nx.find_induced_nodes(G,1,9,2)
>>> list(I)
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]


Notes

G must be a chordal graph and (s,t) an edge that is not in G.

If a treewidth_bound is provided, the search for induced nodes will end as soon as the treewidth_bound is exceeded.

The algorithm is inspired by Algorithm 4 in [1]. A formal definition of induced node can also be found on that reference.
