 r422 See also: \ref graph_concepts "Graph Structure Concepts". */ /** @defgroup graph_adaptors Adaptor Classes for graphs @ingroup graphs \brief This group contains several adaptor classes for digraphs and graphs The main parts of LEMON are the different graph structures, generic graph algorithms, graph concepts which couple these, and graph adaptors. While the previous notions are more or less clear, the latter one needs further explanation. Graph adaptors are graph classes which serve for considering graph structures in different ways. A short example makes this much clearer.  Suppose that we have an instance \c g of a directed graph type say ListDigraph and an algorithm \code template int algorithm(const Digraph&); \endcode is needed to run on the reverse oriented graph.  It may be expensive (in time or in memory usage) to copy \c g with the reversed arcs.  In this case, an adaptor class is used, which (according to LEMON digraph concepts) works as a digraph.  The adaptor uses the original digraph structure and digraph operations when methods of the reversed oriented graph are called.  This means that the adaptor have minor memory usage, and do not perform sophisticated algorithmic actions.  The purpose of it is to give a tool for the cases when a graph have to be used in a specific alteration.  If this alteration is obtained by a usual construction like filtering the arc-set or considering a new orientation, then an adaptor is worthwhile to use. To come back to the reverse oriented graph, in this situation \code template class ReverseDigraph; \endcode template class can be used. The code looks as follows \code ListDigraph g; ReverseDigraph rg(g); int result = algorithm(rg); \endcode After running the algorithm, the original graph \c g is untouched. This techniques gives rise to an elegant code, and based on stable graph adaptors, complex algorithms can be implemented easily. In flow, circulation and bipartite matching problems, the residual graph is of particular importance. Combining an adaptor implementing this, shortest path algorithms and minimum mean cycle algorithms, a range of weighted and cardinality optimization algorithms can be obtained. For other examples, the interested user is referred to the detailed documentation of particular adaptors. The behavior of graph adaptors can be very different. Some of them keep capabilities of the original graph while in other cases this would be meaningless. This means that the concepts that they are models of depend on the graph adaptor, and the wrapped graph(s). If an arc of \c rg is deleted, this is carried out by deleting the corresponding arc of \c g, thus the adaptor modifies the original graph. But for a residual graph, this operation has no sense. Let us stand one more example here to simplify your work. RevGraphAdaptor has constructor \code ReverseDigraph(Digraph& digraph); \endcode This means that in a situation, when a const ListDigraph& reference to a graph is given, then it have to be instantiated with Digraph=const ListDigraph. \code int algorithm1(const ListDigraph& g) { RevGraphAdaptor rg(g); return algorithm2(rg); } \endcode */
