Hamiltonian Path in an undirected graph is a path that visits each vertex exactly once. A Hamiltonian cycle (or Hamiltonian circuit) is a Hamiltonian Path… Read More

Given an undirected graph and a number m, determine if the graph can be coloured with at most m colours such that no two adjacent… Read More

Given a Directed Graph and two vertices in it, check whether there is a path from the first given vertex to second. Example: Consider the following… Read More

Given a directed graph, check whether the graph contains a cycle or not. Your function should return true if the given graph contains at least… Read More

Breadth-First Traversal (or Search) for a graph is similar to Breadth-First Traversal of a tree (See method 2 of this post). The only catch… Read More

Depth First Traversal (or Search) for a graph is similar to Depth First Traversal of a tree. The only catch here is, unlike trees,… Read More
