GraphAutomorphismGroup

GraphAutomorphismGroup[g]

gives the automorphism group of a graph g.

GraphAutomorphismGroup[{vw,}]

uses rules vw to specify the graph g.

Details

  • GraphAutomorphismGroup[g] gives a PermutationGroup that represents the group of automorphisms of the graph g.
  • The automorphism group for a graph can be used to enumerate isomorphic variants of a graph.
  • An automorphism of the graph g is a permutation of vertices of g that preserves the edge-vertex connectivity, i.e. if is an edge in g then is also an edge in g.
