The Mycielski Operation on a graph, :math:`G=(V, E)`, constructs a new graph with :math:`2|V| + 1` nodes and :math:`3|E| + |V|` edges. The construction is as follows: Let :math:`V = {0, ..., n-1}`. Construct another vertex set :math:`U = {n, ..., 2n}` and a vertex, `w`. Construct a new graph, `M`, with vertices :math:`U \bigcup V \bigcup w`. For edges, :math:`(u, v) \in E` add edges :math:`(u, v), (u, v + n)`, and :math:`(u + n, v)` to M. Finally, for all vertices :math:`u \in U`, add edge :math:`(u, w)` to M. The Mycielski Operation can be done multiple times by repeating the above process iteratively. More information can be found at Parameters ---------- G : graph A simple, undirected NetworkX graph iterations : int The number of iterations of the Mycielski operation to perform on G. Defaults to 1. Must be a non-negative integer. Returns ------- M : graph The Mycielskian of G after the specified number of iterations. Notes ------ Graph, node, and edge data are not necessarily propagated to the new graph.

The Mycielski family of graphs is an infinite set of graphs. :math:`M_1` is the singleton graph, :math:`M_2` is two vertices with an edge, and, for :math:`i > 2`, :math:`M_i` is the Mycielskian of :math:`M_{i-1}`.

The second Mycielski graph is the :math:`P_2` graph, so the first two are hard coded. The remaining graphs are generated using the Mycielski operation.
