instead. This class offers an
alternative implementation of some of the functionality encountered in
ConnectivityInspector
. It is likely to perform somewhat slower than
ConnectivityInspector
, but offers more functionality in return.
The algorithm implemented in this class is Hopcroft and Tarjan's biconnected components algorithm, described in: Hopcroft, J. Tarjan, R. Algorithm 447: efficient algorithms for graph manipulation, 1973. Communications of the ACM. 16 (6): 372–378. This implementation runs in linear time $O(V+E)$ and is based on a recursive depthfirst search. More information about this subject be be found in this wikipedia article.
The inspector methods work in a lazy fashion: no computations are performed unless immediately necessary. Computation are done once and results are cached within this class for future need. The core of this class is built around a recursive Depthfirst search.
