4 Operators

4.1 Operators for digraphs

digraph1 = digraph2

returns true if digraph1 and digraph2 have the same vertices, and DigraphEdges(digraph1) = DigraphEdges(digraph2), up to some re-ordering of the edge lists.

Note that this operator does not compare the vertex labels of digraph1 and digraph2.

digraph1 < digraph2

This operator returns true if one of the following holds:

4.1-1 IsSubdigraph
‣ IsSubdigraph( super, sub )( operation )

Returns: true or false.

If super and sub are digraphs, then this operation returns true if sub is a subdigraph of super, and false if it is not.

A digraph sub is a subdigraph of a digraph super if sub and super share the same number of vertices, and the collection of edges of super (including repeats) contains the collection of edges of sub (including repeats).

In other words, sub is a subdigraph of super if and only if DigraphNrVertices(sub) = DigraphNrVertices(super), and for each pair of vertices i and j, there are at least as many edges of the form [i, j] in super as there are in sub.

gap> g := Digraph([[2, 3], [1], [2, 3]]);
<digraph with 3 vertices, 5 edges>
gap> h := Digraph([[2, 3], [], [2]]);
<digraph with 3 vertices, 3 edges>
gap> IsSubdigraph(g, h);
true
gap> IsSubdigraph(h, g);
false
gap> IsSubdigraph(CompleteDigraph(4), CycleDigraph(4));
true
gap> IsSubdigraph(CycleDigraph(4), ChainDigraph(4));
true
gap> g := Digraph([[2, 2], [1]]);
<multidigraph with 2 vertices, 3 edges>
gap> h := Digraph([[2], [1]]);
<digraph with 2 vertices, 2 edges>
gap> IsSubdigraph(g, h);
true
gap> IsSubdigraph(h, g);
false

4.1-2 IsUndirectedSpanningTree
‣ IsUndirectedSpanningTree( super, sub )( operation )
‣ IsUndirectedSpanningForest( super, sub )( operation )

Returns: true or false.

The operation IsUndirectedSpanningTree returns true if the digraph sub is an undirected spanning tree of the digraph super, and the operation IsUndirectedSpanningForest returns true if the digraph sub is an undirected spanning forest of the digraph super.

An undirected spanning tree of a digraph super is a subdigraph of super that is an undirected tree (see IsSubdigraph (4.1-1) and IsUndirectedTree (6.3-7)). Note that a digraph whose MaximalSymmetricSubdigraph (3.3-4) is not connected has no undirected spanning trees (see IsConnectedDigraph (6.3-2)).

An undirected spanning forest of a digraph super is a subdigraph of super that is an undirected forest (see IsSubdigraph (4.1-1) and IsUndirectedForest (6.3-7)), and is not contained in any larger such subdigraph of super. Equivalently, an undirected spanning forest is a subdigraph of super whose connected components coincide with those of the MaximalSymmetricSubdigraph (3.3-4) of super (see DigraphConnectedComponents (5.3-8)).

Note that an undirected spanning tree is an undirected spanning forest that is connected.

gap> gr := CompleteDigraph(4);
<digraph with 4 vertices, 12 edges>
gap> tree := Digraph([[3], [4], [1, 4], [2, 3]]);
<digraph with 4 vertices, 6 edges>
gap> IsSubdigraph(gr, tree) and IsUndirectedTree(tree);
true
gap> IsUndirectedSpanningTree(gr, tree);
true
gap> forest := EmptyDigraph(4);
<digraph with 4 vertices, 0 edges>
gap> IsSubdigraph(gr, forest) and IsUndirectedForest(forest);
true
gap> IsUndirectedSpanningForest(gr, forest);
false
gap> IsSubdigraph(tree, forest);
true
gap> gr := DigraphDisjointUnion(CycleDigraph(2), CycleDigraph(2));
<digraph with 4 vertices, 4 edges>
gap> IsUndirectedTree(gr);
false
gap> IsUndirectedForest(gr) and IsUndirectedSpanningForest(gr, gr);
true
