EdgeContract

EdgeContract[g,e]

contracts the edge e of the graph g.

EdgeContract[g,{e1,e2,}]

contracts a collection of edges e1,e2,.

EdgeContract[{vw,},]

uses rules vw to specify the graph g.

Details and Options

  • EdgeContract[g,e] creates a new graph from g by deleting the edge e and merging the vertex v into u.
  • EdgeContract works with undirected graphs, directed graphs, multigraphs, and mixed graphs.
