10\brief Graph structures implemented in LEMON.
11
12The implementation of combinatorial algorithms heavily relies on
13efficient graph implementations. LEMON offers data structures which are
14planned to be easily used in an experimental phase of implementation studies,
15and thereafter the program code can be made efficient by small modifications.
16
17The most efficient implementation of diverse applications require the usage of different physical graph implementations. These differences appear in the size of
18graph we require to handle, memory or time usage limitations or in
19the set of operations through which the graph can be accessed.
20LEMON provides several physical graph structures to meet the
21diverging requirements of the possible users.
22In order to save on running time or on memory usage, some structures may
23fail to provide some graph features like edge or node deletion.
24
25Alteration of standard containers need a very limited number of
26operations, these together satisfy the everyday requirements.
27In the case of graph strutures, different operations are needed which do
28not alter the physical graph, but gives another view. If some nodes or
29edges have to be hidden or the reverse oriented graph have to be used, then
30this is the case. It also may happen that in a flow implemenation
31the residual graph can be accessed by another algorithm, or a node-set
32is to be shrunk for another algorithm.
33LEMON also provides a variety of graphs for these requirements called
34\ref graph_adaptors "graph adaptors". Adaptors cannot be used alone but only
35in conjunction with other graph representation.
36
37You are free to use the graph structure that fit your requirements
38the best, most graph algorithms and auxiliary data structures can be used
39with any graph structures.

79make arithmetic oprerations between one or two maps (negation, scalig,
80addition, multiplication etc.) or e.g. convert a map to another one
