networkx.MultiGraph.remove_edges_from

MultiGraph.remove_edges_from(ebunch)[source]

Remove all edges specified in ebunch.

Parameters

ebunch (list or container of edge tuples) – Each edge given in the list or container will be removed from the graph. The edges can be:

  • 2-tuples (u, v) All edges between u and v are removed.

  • 3-tuples (u, v, key) The edge identified by key is removed.

  • 4-tuples (u, v, key, data) where data is ignored.

remove_edge()

remove a single edge

Notes

Will fail silently if an edge in ebunch is not in the graph.

Examples

>>> G = nx.path_graph(4)  # or DiGraph, MultiGraph, MultiDiGraph, etc
>>> ebunch=[(1, 2), (2, 3)]
>>> G.remove_edges_from(ebunch)

Removing multiple copies of edges

>>> G = nx.MultiGraph()
>>> keys = G.add_edges_from([(1, 2), (1, 2), (1, 2)])
>>> G.remove_edges_from([(1, 2), (1, 2)])
>>> list(G.edges())
[(1, 2)]
>>> G.remove_edges_from([(1, 2), (1, 2)]) # silently ignore extra copy
>>> list(G.edges) # now empty graph
