## Class ConnectivityInspector<V,E>

• Type Parameters:
V - the graph vertex type
E - the graph edge type
All Implemented Interfaces:
EventListener, GraphListener<V,E>, VertexSetListener<V>

public class ConnectivityInspector<V,E>
extends Object
implements GraphListener<V,E>
Allows obtaining various connectivity aspects of a graph. The inspected graph is specified at construction time and cannot be modified. Currently, the inspector supports connected components for an undirected graph and weakly connected components for a directed graph. To find strongly connected components, use KosarajuStrongConnectivityInspector instead.

The inspector methods work in a lazy fashion: no computation is performed unless immediately necessary. Computation are done once and results and cached within this class for future need.

The inspector is also a GraphListener. If added as a listener to the inspected graph, the inspector will amend internal cached results instead of recomputing them. It is efficient when a few modifications are applied to a large graph. If many modifications are expected it will not be efficient due to added overhead on graph update operations. If inspector is added as listener to a graph other than the one it inspects, results are undefined.

public ConnectivityInspector(Graph<V,E> g)
Creates a connectivity inspector for the specified graph.
Parameters:
g - the graph for which a connectivity inspector to be created.
• ### Method Detail

• #### isGraphConnected

@Deprecated
public boolean isGraphConnected()
Deprecated. for consistency, this method is renamed to isConnected()
Test if the inspected graph is connected. A graph is connected when there is a path between every pair of vertices. In a connected graph, there are no unreachable vertices. When the inspected graph is a directed graph, this method returns true if and only if the inspected graph is weakly connected. An empty graph is not considered connected.
Returns:
true if and only if inspected graph is connected.
• #### isConnected

public boolean isConnected()
Test if the inspected graph is connected. A graph is connected when there is a path between every pair of vertices. In a connected graph, there are no unreachable vertices. When the inspected graph is a directed graph, this method returns true if and only if the inspected graph is weakly connected. An empty graph is not considered connected.
Returns:
true if and only if inspected graph is connected.
• #### connectedSetOf

public Set<V> connectedSetOf(V vertex)
Returns a set of all vertices that are in the maximally connected component together with the specified vertex. For more on maximally connected component, see http://www.nist.gov/dads/HTML/maximallyConnectedComponent.html.
Parameters:
vertex - the vertex for which the connected set to be returned.
Returns:
a set of all vertices that are in the maximally connected component together with the specified vertex.
• #### connectedSets

public List<Set<V>> connectedSets()
Returns a list of Set s, where each set contains all vertices that are in the same maximally connected component. All graph vertices occur in exactly one set. For more on maximally connected component, see http://www.nist.gov/dads/HTML/maximallyConnectedComponent.html.
Returns:
Returns a list of Set s, where each set contains all vertices that are in the same maximally connected component.

Parameters:
sourceVertex - one end of the path.
