# Euler Tour of Tree

A Tree is a generalization of connected graph where it has N nodes that will have exactly N-1 edges, i.e one edge between every pair of vertices. Find the Euler tour of tree represented by adjacency list.

Examples:

Input : Output : 1 2 3 2 4 2 1

Input : Output : 1 5 4 2 4 3 4 5 1

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Euler tour is defined as a way of traversing tree such that each vertex is added to the tour when we visit it (either moving down from parent vertex or returning from child vertex). We start from root and reach back to root after visiting all vertices.

It requires exactly 2*N-1 vertices to store Euler tour.

Approach: We will run DFS(Depth first search) algorithm on Tree as: (1) Visit root node, i.e 1
vis=1, Euler=1
run dfs() for all unvisited adjacent nodes(2)
(2) Visit node 2
vis=1, Euler=2
run dfs() for all unvisited adjacent nodes(3, 4)
(3) Visit node 3
vis=1, Euler=3
and add parent to Euler tour Euler=2
(4) Visit node 4
vis=1, Euler=4
and add parent to Euler tour, Euler=2
(5) Visit node 2
and add parent to Euler tour, Euler=1
(6) Visit node 1
All adjacent nodes are already visited, and node 1 is root node
so, we stop our recursion here.
