\brief Graph structures implemented in LEMON.
alpar@40
    28
alpar@209
    29
The implementation of combinatorial algorithms heavily relies on
alpar@209
    30
efficient graph implementations. LEMON offers data structures which are
alpar@209
    31
planned to be easily used in an experimental phase of implementation studies,
alpar@209
    32
and thereafter the program code can be made efficient by small modifications.
alpar@40
    33
alpar@40
    34
The most efficient implementation of diverse applications require the
alpar@40
    35
usage of different physical graph implementations. These differences
alpar@40
    36
appear in the size of graph we require to handle, memory or time usage
alpar@40
    37
limitations or in the set of operations through which the graph can be
alpar@40
    38
accessed.  LEMON provides several physical graph structures to meet
alpar@40
    39
the diverging requirements of the possible users.  In order to save on
alpar@40
    40
running time or on memory usage, some structures may fail to provide
kpeter@83
    41
some graph features like arc/edge or node deletion.
alpar@40
    42
alpar@40
    43
You are free to use the graph structure that fit your requirements
alpar@40
    44
the best, most graph algorithms and auxiliary data structures can be used
kpeter@318
    45
with any graph structure.

    76
kpeter@50
    77
This group describes map adaptors that are used to create "implicit"
kpeter@50
    78
maps from other maps.
alpar@40
    79
kpeter@83
    80
Most of them are \ref lemon::concepts::ReadMap "read-only maps".
kpeter@83
    81
They can make arithmetic and logical operations between one or two maps
kpeter@83
    82
(negation, shifting, addition, multiplication, logical 'and', 'or',
kpeter@83
    83
'not' etc.) or e.g. convert a map to another one of different Value type.
alpar@40
    84
kpeter@50
    85
The typical usage of this classes is passing implicit maps to
alpar@40
    86
algorithms.  If a function type algorithm is called then the function
alpar@40
    87
type map adaptors can be used comfortable. For example let's see the
kpeter@318
    88
usage of map adaptors with the \c graphToEps() function.
alpar@40
    89
\code
alpar@40
    90
  Color nodeColor(int deg) {
alpar@40
    91
    if (deg >= 2) {
alpar@40
    92
      return Color(0.5, 0.0, 0.5);
alpar@40
    93
    } else if (deg == 1) {
alpar@40
    94
      return Color(1.0, 0.5, 1.0);
alpar@40
    95
    } else {
alpar@40
    96
      return Color(0.0, 0.0, 0.0);
alpar@40
    97
    }
alpar@40
    98
  }
alpar@209
    99
kpeter@83
   100
  Digraph::NodeMap<int> degree_map(graph);
alpar@209
   101
kpeter@318
   102
  graphToEps(graph, "graph.eps")
alpar@40
   103
    .coords(coords).scaleToA4().undirected()
kpeter@83
   104
    .nodeColors(composeMap(functorToMap(nodeColor), degree_map))
alpar@40
   105
    .run();
alpar@209
   106
\endcode
kpeter@83
   107
The \c functorToMap() function makes an \c int to \c Color map from the
kpeter@318
   108
\c nodeColor() function. The \c composeMap() compose the \c degree_map
kpeter@83
   109
and the previously created map. The composed map is a proper function to
kpeter@83
   110
get the color of each node.
alpar@40
   111
alpar@40
   112
The usage with class type algorithms is little bit harder. In this
alpar@40
   113
case the function type map adaptors can not be used, because the
kpeter@50
   114
function map adaptors give back temporary objects.
alpar@40
   115
\code
kpeter@83
   116
  Digraph graph;
kpeter@83
   117
kpeter@83
   118
  typedef Digraph::ArcMap<double> DoubleArcMap;
kpeter@83
   119
  DoubleArcMap length(graph);
kpeter@83
   120
  DoubleArcMap speed(graph);
kpeter@83
   121
kpeter@83
   122
  typedef DivMap<DoubleArcMap, DoubleArcMap> TimeMap;
alpar@40
   123
  TimeMap time(length, speed);
alpar@209
   124
kpeter@83
   125
  Dijkstra<Digraph, TimeMap> dijkstra(graph, time);
alpar@40
   126
  dijkstra.run(source, target);
alpar@40
   127
\endcode
kpeter@83
   128
We have a length map and a maximum speed map on the arcs of a digraph.
kpeter@83
   129
The minimum time to pass the arc can be calculated as the division of
kpeter@83
   130
the two maps which can be done implicitly with the \c DivMap template
alpar@40
   131
class. We use the implicit minimum time map as the length map of the
alpar@40
   132
\c Dijkstra algorithm.

alpar@40

alpar@40
   272
The purpose of the classes in this group is fourfold.
alpar@209
   273
alpar@40
   274
- These classes contain the documentations of the concepts. In order
alpar@40
   275
  to avoid document multiplications, an implementation of a concept
alpar@40
   276
  simply refers to the corresponding concept class.
alpar@40
   277
alpar@40
   278
- These classes declare every functions, <tt>typedef</tt>s etc. an
alpar@40
   279
  implementation of the concepts should provide, however completely
alpar@40
   280
  without implementations and real data structures behind the
alpar@40
   281
  interface. On the other hand they should provide nothing else. All
alpar@40
   282
  the algorithms working on a data structure meeting a certain concept
alpar@40
   283
  should compile with these classes. (Though it will not run properly,
alpar@40
   284
  of course.) In this way it is easily to check if an algorithm
alpar@40
   285
  doesn't use any extra feature of a certain implementation.
alpar@40
   286
alpar@40
   287
- The concept descriptor classes also provide a <em>checker class</em>
kpeter@50
   288
  that makes it possible to check whether a certain implementation of a
alpar@40
   289
  concept indeed provides all the required features.
alpar@40
   290
alpar@40
   291
- Finally, They can serve as a skeleton of a new implementation of a concept.
