27 \brief Graph structures implemented in LEMON.

29 The implementation of combinatorial algorithms heavily relies on

30 efficient graph implementations. LEMON offers data structures which are

31 planned to be easily used in an experimental phase of implementation studies,

32 and thereafter the program code can be made efficient by small modifications.

34 The most efficient implementation of diverse applications require the

35 usage of different physical graph implementations. These differences

36 appear in the size of graph we require to handle, memory or time usage

37 limitations or in the set of operations through which the graph can be

38 accessed. LEMON provides several physical graph structures to meet

39 the diverging requirements of the possible users. In order to save on

40 running time or on memory usage, some structures may fail to provide

41 some graph features like arc/edge or node deletion.

43 You are free to use the graph structure that fit your requirements

44 the best, most graph algorithms and auxiliary data structures can be used

45 with any graph structure.

53 \brief Map structures implemented in LEMON.

55 This group describes the map structures implemented in LEMON.

57 LEMON provides several special purpose maps and map adaptors that e.g. combine

58 new maps from existing ones.

72 /**

73 \defgroup map_adaptors Map Adaptors

74 \ingroup maps

75 \brief Tools to create new maps from existing ones

77 This group describes map adaptors that are used to create "implicit"

78 maps from other maps.

80 Most of them are \ref lemon::concepts::ReadMap "read-only maps".

81 They can make arithmetic and logical operations between one or two maps

82 (negation, shifting, addition, multiplication, logical 'and', 'or',

83 'not' etc.) or e.g. convert a map to another one of different Value type.

85 The typical usage of this classes is passing implicit maps to

86 algorithms. If a function type algorithm is called then the function

87 type map adaptors can be used comfortable. For example let's see the

88 usage of map adaptors with the \c graphToEps() function.

89 \code

90 Color nodeColor(int deg) {

91 if (deg >= 2) {

92 return Color(0.5, 0.0, 0.5);

93 } else if (deg == 1) {

94 return Color(1.0, 0.5, 1.0);

95 } else {

96 return Color(0.0, 0.0, 0.0);

97 }

98 }

100 Digraph::NodeMap<int> degree_map(graph);

102 graphToEps(graph, "graph.eps")

103 .coords(coords).scaleToA4().undirected()

104 .nodeColors(composeMap(functorToMap(nodeColor), degree_map))

105 .run();

106 \endcode

107 The \c functorToMap() function makes an \c int to \c Color map from the

108 \c nodeColor() function. The \c composeMap() compose the \c degree_map

109 and the previously created map. The composed map is a proper function to

110 get the color of each node.

112 The usage with class type algorithms is little bit harder. In this

113 case the function type map adaptors can not be used, because the

114 function map adaptors give back temporary objects.

115 \code

116 Digraph graph;

118 typedef Digraph::ArcMap<double> DoubleArcMap;

119 DoubleArcMap length(graph);

120 DoubleArcMap speed(graph);

122 typedef DivMap<DoubleArcMap, DoubleArcMap> TimeMap;

123 TimeMap time(length, speed);

125 Dijkstra<Digraph, TimeMap> dijkstra(graph, time);

126 dijkstra.run(source, target);

127 \endcode

128 We have a length map and a maximum speed map on the arcs of a digraph.

129 The minimum time to pass the arc can be calculated as the division of

130 the two maps which can be done implicitly with the \c DivMap template

131 class. We use the implicit minimum time map as the length map of the

132 \c Dijkstra algorithm.

142 LEMON provides flexible data structures to work with paths.

146 any kind of path structure.

268 This group describes the data/algorithm skeletons and concept checking

269 classes implemented in LEMON.

271 The purpose of the classes in this group is fourfold.

273 - These classes contain the documentations of the %concepts. In order

274 to avoid document multiplications, an implementation of a concept

275 simply refers to the corresponding concept class.

277 - These classes declare every functions, <tt>typedef</tt>s etc. an

278 implementation of the %concepts should provide, however completely

279 without implementations and real data structures behind the

280 interface. On the other hand they should provide nothing else. All

281 the algorithms working on a data structure meeting a certain concept

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

283 of course.) In this way it is easily to check if an algorithm

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

286 - The concept descriptor classes also provide a <em>checker class</em>

287 that makes it possible to check whether a certain implementation of a

288 concept indeed provides all the required features.

290 - Finally, They can serve as a skeleton of a new implementation of a concept.
