Finding the biconnected components of a graph
A named list with three components:
Numeric scalar, an integer giving the number of biconnected components in the graph.
The components themselves, a list of numeric vectors. Each vector is a set of edge ids giving the edges in a biconnected component. These edges define a spanning tree of the component.
A list of numeric vectors. It gives all edges in the components.
A list of numeric vectors, the vertices of the components.
The articulation points of the graph. See
A graph is biconnected if the removal of any single vertex (and its adjacent edges) does not disconnect it.
A biconnected component of a graph is a maximal biconnected subgraph of it. The biconnected components of a graph can be given by the partition of its edges: every edge is a member of exactly one biconnected component. Note that this is not true for vertices: the same vertex can be part of many biconnected components.
