VertexTransitiveGraphQ

VertexTransitiveGraphQ[g]

yields True if the graph g is a vertextransitive graph and False otherwise.

Details

  • A graph g is vertex transitive if for any vertices v and w of g, there is an automorphism of g that maps v to w.
  • VertexTransitiveGraphQ is typically used to test whether all vertices in a graph have identical neighborhoods.
