Class DirectedEulerianCycle

  • public class DirectedEulerianCycle
    extends Object
    The DirectedEulerianCycle class represents a data type for finding an Eulerian cycle or path in a digraph. An Eulerian cycle is a cycle (not necessarily simple) that uses every edge in the digraph exactly once.

    This implementation uses a nonrecursive depth-first search. The constructor takes Θ(E + V) time in the worst case, where E is the number of edges and V is the number of vertices Each instance method takes Θ(1) time. It uses Θ(V) extra space (not including the digraph).

    To compute Eulerian paths in digraphs, see DirectedEulerianPath. To compute Eulerian cycles and paths in undirected graphs, see EulerianCycle and EulerianPath.
