Class SmallestDegreeLastColoring<V,​E>

  • Type Parameters:
    V - the graph vertex type
    E - the graph edge type
    All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class SmallestDegreeLastColoring<V,​E>
    extends GreedyColoring<V,​E>
    The smallest degree last greedy coloring algorithm.

    This is the greedy coloring algorithm with the smallest-last ordering of the vertices. The basic idea is as follows: Assuming that vertices $v_{k+1}, \dotso, v_n$ have been already selected, choose $v_k$ so that the degree of $v_k$ in the subgraph induced by $V - $(v_{k+1}, \dotso, v_n)$ is minimal. See the following paper for details.
