Bicomponents

As of Version 10, all the functionality of the GraphUtilities package is built into the Wolfram System. >>

Bicomponents[g]
gives the biconnected components of the undirected graph g.

DetailsDetails

  • Bicomponents functionality is now available in the built-in Wolfram Language function KVertexConnectedComponents.
  • To use , you first need to load the Graph Utilities Package using Needs["GraphUtilities`"].
  • A biconnected component is a maximal subgraph that has no cutpoint, where a cutpoint is a vertex v such that the subgraph becomes disconnected if v and all its edges are removed.
  • treats the input g as an undirected graph.
