kl_connected_subgraph¶

kl_connected_subgraph
(G, k, l, low_memory=False, same_as_graph=False)[source]¶ Returns the maximum locally connected subgraph of
G
.A graph is locally connected if for each edge in the graph there are at least edgedisjoint paths of length at most joining to .
Parameters:  G (NetworkX graph) – The graph in which to find a maximum locally connected subgraph.
 k (integer) – The maximum length of paths to consider. A higher number means a looser connectivity requirement.
 l (integer) – The number of edgedisjoint paths. A higher number means a stricter connectivity requirement.
 low_memory (bool) – If this is
True
, this function uses an algorithm that uses slightly more time but less memory.  same_as_graph (bool) – If this is
True
then return a tuple of the form(H, is_same)
, whereH
is the maximum locally connected subgraph andis_same
is a Boolean representing whetherG
is locally connected (and hence, whetherH
is simply a copy of the input graphG
).
Returns: If
same_as_graph
isTrue
, then this function returns a twotuple as described above. Otherwise, it returns only the maximum locally connected subgraph.Return type: NetworkX graph or twotuple
