29 | \brief Graph structures implemented in LEMON. |
---|
30 | |
---|
31 | The implementation of combinatorial algorithms heavily relies on |
---|
32 | efficient graph implementations. LEMON offers data structures which are |
---|
33 | planned to be easily used in an experimental phase of implementation studies, |
---|
34 | and thereafter the program code can be made efficient by small modifications. |
---|
35 | |
---|
36 | The most efficient implementation of diverse applications require the |
---|
37 | usage of different physical graph implementations. These differences |
---|
38 | appear in the size of graph we require to handle, memory or time usage |
---|
39 | limitations or in the set of operations through which the graph can be |
---|
40 | accessed. LEMON provides several physical graph structures to meet |
---|
41 | the diverging requirements of the possible users. In order to save on |
---|
42 | running time or on memory usage, some structures may fail to provide |
---|
43 | some graph features like arc/edge or node deletion. |
---|
44 | |
---|
45 | Alteration of standard containers need a very limited number of |
---|
46 | operations, these together satisfy the everyday requirements. |
---|
47 | In the case of graph structures, different operations are needed which do |
---|
48 | not alter the physical graph, but gives another view. If some nodes or |
---|
49 | arcs have to be hidden or the reverse oriented graph have to be used, then |
---|
50 | this is the case. It also may happen that in a flow implementation |
---|
51 | the residual graph can be accessed by another algorithm, or a node-set |
---|
52 | is to be shrunk for another algorithm. |
---|
53 | LEMON also provides a variety of graphs for these requirements called |
---|
54 | \ref graph_adaptors "graph adaptors". Adaptors cannot be used alone but only |
---|
55 | in conjunction with other graph representations. |
---|
56 | |
---|
57 | You are free to use the graph structure that fit your requirements |
---|
58 | the best, most graph algorithms and auxiliary data structures can be used |
---|
59 | with any graph structure. |

---|
67 | \brief Adaptor classes for digraphs and graphs |
---|
68 | |
---|
69 | This group contains several useful adaptor classes for digraphs and graphs. |
---|
70 | |
---|
71 | The main parts of LEMON are the different graph structures, generic |
---|
72 | graph algorithms, graph concepts, which couple them, and graph |
---|
73 | adaptors. While the previous notions are more or less clear, the |
---|
74 | latter one needs further explanation. Graph adaptors are graph classes |
---|
75 | which serve for considering graph structures in different ways. |
---|
76 | |
---|
77 | A short example makes this much clearer. Suppose that we have an |
---|
78 | instance \c g of a directed graph type, say ListDigraph and an algorithm |
---|
79 | \code |
---|
80 | template <typename Digraph> |
---|
81 | int algorithm(const Digraph&); |
---|
82 | \endcode |
---|
83 | is needed to run on the reverse oriented graph. It may be expensive |
---|
84 | (in time or in memory usage) to copy \c g with the reversed |
---|
85 | arcs. In this case, an adaptor class is used, which (according |
---|
86 | to LEMON \ref concepts::Digraph "digraph concepts") works as a digraph. |
---|
87 | The adaptor uses the original digraph structure and digraph operations when |
---|
88 | methods of the reversed oriented graph are called. This means that the adaptor |
---|
89 | have minor memory usage, and do not perform sophisticated algorithmic |
---|
90 | actions. The purpose of it is to give a tool for the cases when a |
---|
91 | graph have to be used in a specific alteration. If this alteration is |
---|
92 | obtained by a usual construction like filtering the node or the arc set or |
---|
93 | considering a new orientation, then an adaptor is worthwhile to use. |
---|
94 | To come back to the reverse oriented graph, in this situation |
---|
95 | \code |
---|
96 | template<typename Digraph> class ReverseDigraph; |
---|
97 | \endcode |
---|
98 | template class can be used. The code looks as follows |
---|
99 | \code |
---|
100 | ListDigraph g; |
---|
101 | ReverseDigraph<ListDigraph> rg(g); |
---|
102 | int result = algorithm(rg); |
---|
103 | \endcode |
---|
104 | During running the algorithm, the original digraph \c g is untouched. |
---|
105 | This techniques give rise to an elegant code, and based on stable |
---|
106 | graph adaptors, complex algorithms can be implemented easily. |
---|
107 | |
---|
108 | In flow, circulation and matching problems, the residual |
---|
109 | graph is of particular importance. Combining an adaptor implementing |
---|
110 | this with shortest path algorithms or minimum mean cycle algorithms, |
---|
111 | a range of weighted and cardinality optimization algorithms can be |
---|
112 | obtained. For other examples, the interested user is referred to the |
---|
113 | detailed documentation of particular adaptors. |
---|
114 | |
---|
115 | Since the adaptor classes conform to the \ref graph_concepts "graph concepts", |
---|
116 | an adaptor can even be applied to another one. |
---|
117 | The following image illustrates a situation when a \ref SubDigraph adaptor |
---|
118 | is applied on a digraph and \ref Undirector is applied on the subgraph. |
---|
119 | |
---|
120 | \image html adaptors2.png |
---|
121 | \image latex adaptors2.eps "Using graph adaptors" width=\textwidth |
---|
122 | |
---|
123 | The behavior of graph adaptors can be very different. Some of them keep |
---|
124 | capabilities of the original graph while in other cases this would be |
---|
125 | meaningless. This means that the concepts that they meet depend |
---|
126 | on the graph adaptor, and the wrapped graph. |
---|
127 | For example, if an arc of a reversed digraph is deleted, this is carried |
---|
128 | out by deleting the corresponding arc of the original digraph, thus the |
---|
129 | adaptor modifies the original digraph. |
---|
130 | However in case of a residual digraph, this operation has no sense. |
---|
131 | |
---|
132 | Let us stand one more example here to simplify your work. |
---|
133 | ReverseDigraph has constructor |
---|
134 | \code |
---|
135 | ReverseDigraph(Digraph& digraph); |
---|
136 | \endcode |
---|
137 | This means that in a situation, when a <tt>const %ListDigraph&</tt> |
---|
138 | reference to a graph is given, then it have to be instantiated with |
---|
139 | <tt>Digraph=const %ListDigraph</tt>. |
---|
140 | \code |
---|
141 | int algorithm1(const ListDigraph& g) { |
---|
142 | ReverseDigraph<const ListDigraph> rg(g); |
---|
143 | return algorithm2(rg); |
---|
144 | } |
---|

176 | \brief Tools to create new maps from existing ones |
---|
177 | |
---|
178 | This group contains map adaptors that are used to create "implicit" |
---|
179 | maps from other maps. |
---|
180 | |
---|
181 | Most of them are \ref concepts::ReadMap "read-only maps". |
---|
182 | They can make arithmetic and logical operations between one or two maps |
---|
183 | (negation, shifting, addition, multiplication, logical 'and', 'or', |
---|
184 | 'not' etc.) or e.g. convert a map to another one of different Value type. |
---|
185 | |
---|
186 | The typical usage of this classes is passing implicit maps to |
---|
187 | algorithms. If a function type algorithm is called then the function |
---|
188 | type map adaptors can be used comfortable. For example let's see the |
---|
189 | usage of map adaptors with the \c graphToEps() function. |
---|
190 | \code |
---|
191 | Color nodeColor(int deg) { |
---|
192 | if (deg >= 2) { |
---|
193 | return Color(0.5, 0.0, 0.5); |
---|
194 | } else if (deg == 1) { |
---|
195 | return Color(1.0, 0.5, 1.0); |
---|
196 | } else { |
---|
197 | return Color(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); |
---|
198 | } |
---|
199 | } |
---|
200 | |
---|
201 | Digraph::NodeMap<int> degree_map(graph); |
---|
202 | |
---|
203 | graphToEps(graph, "graph.eps") |
---|
204 | .coords(coords).scaleToA4().undirected() |
---|
205 | .nodeColors(composeMap(functorToMap(nodeColor), degree_map)) |
---|
206 | .run(); |
---|
207 | \endcode |
---|
208 | The \c functorToMap() function makes an \c int to \c Color map from the |
---|
209 | \c nodeColor() function. The \c composeMap() compose the \c degree_map |
---|
210 | and the previously created map. The composed map is a proper function to |
---|
211 | get the color of each node. |
---|
212 | |
---|
213 | The usage with class type algorithms is little bit harder. In this |
---|
214 | case the function type map adaptors can not be used, because the |
---|
215 | function map adaptors give back temporary objects. |
---|
216 | \code |
---|
217 | Digraph graph; |
---|
218 | |
---|
219 | typedef Digraph::ArcMap<double> DoubleArcMap; |
---|
220 | DoubleArcMap length(graph); |
---|
221 | DoubleArcMap speed(graph); |
---|
222 | |
---|
223 | typedef DivMap<DoubleArcMap, DoubleArcMap> TimeMap; |
---|
224 | TimeMap time(length, speed); |
---|
225 | |
---|
226 | Dijkstra<Digraph, TimeMap> dijkstra(graph, time); |
---|
227 | dijkstra.run(source, target); |
---|
228 | \endcode |
---|
229 | We have a length map and a maximum speed map on the arcs of a digraph. |
---|
230 | The minimum time to pass the arc can be calculated as the division of |
---|
231 | the two maps which can be done implicitly with the \c DivMap template |
---|
232 | class. We use the implicit minimum time map as the length map of the |
---|
233 | \c Dijkstra algorithm. |

417 | In general, \ref NetworkSimplex and \ref CostScaling are the most efficient |

418 | implementations. |

419 | \ref NetworkSimplex is usually the fastest on relatively small graphs (up to |
---|
420 | several thousands of nodes) and on dense graphs, while \ref CostScaling is |
---|
421 | typically more efficient on large graphs (e.g. hundreds of thousands of |
---|
422 | nodes or above), especially if they are sparse. |
---|
423 | However, other algorithms could be faster in special cases. |
---|
424 | For example, if the total supply and/or capacities are rather small, |
---|
425 | \ref CapacityScaling is usually the fastest algorithm (without effective scaling). |
---|
426 | |
---|
427 | These classes are intended to be used with integer-valued input data |
---|
428 | (capacities, supply values, and costs), except for \ref CapacityScaling, |
---|
429 | which is capable of handling real-valued arc costs (other numerical |
---|
430 | data are required to be integer). |

444 | This group contains the algorithms for finding minimum cut in graphs. |
---|
445 | |
---|
446 | The \e minimum \e cut \e problem is to find a non-empty and non-complete |
---|
447 | \f$X\f$ subset of the nodes with minimum overall capacity on |
---|
448 | outgoing arcs. Formally, there is a \f$G=(V,A)\f$ digraph, a |
---|
449 | \f$cap: A\rightarrow\mathbf{R}^+_0\f$ capacity function. The minimum |
---|
450 | cut is the \f$X\f$ solution of the next optimization problem: |
---|
451 | |
---|
452 | \f[ \min_{X \subset V, X\not\in \{\emptyset, V\}} |
---|
453 | \sum_{uv\in A: u\in X, v\not\in X}cap(uv) \f] |
---|
454 | |
---|
455 | LEMON contains several algorithms related to minimum cut problems: |
---|
456 | |
---|
457 | - \ref HaoOrlin "Hao-Orlin algorithm" for calculating minimum cut |
---|
458 | in directed graphs. |

474 | \cite amo93networkflows, \cite karp78characterization. |
---|
475 | |
---|
476 | The \e minimum \e mean \e cycle \e problem is to find a directed cycle |
---|
477 | of minimum mean length (cost) in a digraph. |
---|
478 | The mean length of a cycle is the average length of its arcs, i.e. the |
---|
479 | ratio between the total length of the cycle and the number of arcs on it. |
---|
480 | |
---|
481 | This problem has an important connection to \e conservative \e length |
---|
482 | \e functions, too. A length function on the arcs of a digraph is called |
---|
483 | conservative if and only if there is no directed cycle of negative total |
---|
484 | length. For an arbitrary length function, the negative of the minimum |
---|
485 | cycle mean is the smallest \f$\epsilon\f$ value so that increasing the |
---|
486 | arc lengths uniformly by \f$\epsilon\f$ results in a conservative length |
---|
487 | function. |
---|
488 | |
---|
489 | LEMON contains three algorithms for solving the minimum mean cycle problem: |
---|
490 | - \ref KarpMmc Karp's original algorithm \cite karp78characterization. |
---|
491 | - \ref HartmannOrlinMmc Hartmann-Orlin's algorithm, which is an improved |
---|
492 | version of Karp's algorithm \cite hartmann93finding. |

493 | - \ref HowardMmc Howard's policy iteration algorithm |
---|
494 | \cite dasdan98minmeancycle, \cite dasdan04experimental. |
---|
495 | |
---|
496 | In practice, the \ref HowardMmc "Howard" algorithm turned out to be by far the |
---|
497 | most efficient one, though the best known theoretical bound on its running |
---|
498 | time is exponential. |
---|
499 | Both \ref KarpMmc "Karp" and \ref HartmannOrlinMmc "Hartmann-Orlin" algorithms |

507 | |

508 | This group contains the algorithms for calculating |

510 | finding a subset of the edges for which each node has at most one incident |

512 | |
---|
513 | There are several different algorithms for calculate matchings in |

514 | graphs. The matching problems in bipartite graphs are generally |
---|
515 | easier than in general graphs. The goal of the matching optimization |
---|
516 | can be finding maximum cardinality, maximum weight or minimum cost |

517 | matching. The search can be constrained to find perfect or |

518 | maximum cardinality matching. |

578 | |
---|
579 | This group contains basic heuristic algorithms for the the symmetric |
---|
580 | \e traveling \e salesman \e problem (TSP). |
---|
581 | Given an \ref FullGraph "undirected full graph" with a cost map on its edges, |
---|
582 | the problem is to find a shortest possible tour that visits each node exactly |
---|
583 | once (i.e. the minimum cost Hamiltonian cycle). |
---|
584 | |
---|
585 | These TSP algorithms are intended to be used with a \e metric \e cost |
---|
586 | \e function, i.e. the edge costs should satisfy the triangle inequality. |
---|
587 | Otherwise the algorithms could yield worse results. |
---|
588 | |
---|
589 | LEMON provides five well-known heuristics for solving symmetric TSP: |
---|
590 | - \ref NearestNeighborTsp Neareast neighbor algorithm |
---|
591 | - \ref GreedyTsp Greedy algorithm |
---|
592 | - \ref InsertionTsp Insertion heuristic (with four selection methods) |
---|
593 | - \ref ChristofidesTsp Christofides algorithm |
---|
594 | - \ref Opt2Tsp 2-opt algorithm |
---|
595 | |
---|
596 | \ref NearestNeighborTsp, \ref GreedyTsp, and \ref InsertionTsp are the fastest |
---|
597 | solution methods. Furthermore, \ref InsertionTsp is usually quite effective. |
---|
598 | |
---|
599 | \ref ChristofidesTsp is somewhat slower, but it has the best guaranteed |
---|
600 | approximation factor: 3/2. |
---|
601 | |
---|
602 | \ref Opt2Tsp usually provides the best results in practice, but |
---|
603 | it is the slowest method. It can also be used to improve given tours, |
---|
604 | for example, the results of other algorithms. |

776 | should compile with these classes. (Though it will not run properly, |

778 | doesn't use any extra feature of a certain implementation. |
