Conversion of an Undirected Graph to a Directed Euler Circuit
Given an undirected graph with V nodes (say numbered from 1 to V) and E edges, the task is to check whether the graph is an Euler Graph or not and if so then convert it into a Directed Euler Circuit.
A Directed Euler Circuit is a directed graph such that if you start traversing the graph from any node and travel through each edge exactly once you will end up on the starting node.
Note: While traversing a Euler circuit every edge is traversed exactly once. A node can be traversed more than once if needed but an edge cannot be traversed more than once.
The Directed Euler Circuit for the given undirected graph will be:
- First, we need to make sure the given Undirected Graph is Eulerian or not. If the undirected graph is not Eulerian we cannot convert it to a Directed Eulerian Graph.
- To check it we just need to calculate the degree of every node. If the degree of all nodes is even and not equal to 0 then the graph is Eulerian.
- We will be using Depth First Search Traversal to assign the directions.
- While traversing we will set the direction of an edge from parent to child. We will maintain a map to make sure an edge is traversed only once.
Below is the implementation of the above algorithm:
1 2 2 5 5 1 2 4 4 3 3 2
Time Complexity: O(( V + E ) * log( E ))
Space Complexity: O(max( V, E ))
