def k_components(G, flow_func=None):
r"""Returns the k-component structure of a graph G.
A `k`-component is a maximal subgraph of a graph G that has, at least,
node connectivity `k`: we need to remove at least `k` nodes to break it
into more components. `k`-components have an inherent hierarchical
structure because they are nested in terms of connectivity: a connected
graph can contain several 2-components, each of which can contain
one or more 3-components, and so forth.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
flow_func : function
Function to perform the underlying flow computations. Default value
:meth:`edmonds_karp`. This function performs better in sparse graphs with
right tailed degree distributions. :meth:`shortest_augmenting_path` will
perform better in denser graphs.
Returns
-------
k_components : dict
Dictionary with all connectivity levels `k` in the input Graph as keys
and a list of sets of nodes that form a k-component of level `k` as
values.
Raises
------
NetworkXNotImplemented
If the input graph is directed.
Examples
--------
>>> # Petersen graph has 10 nodes and it is triconnected, thus all
>>> # nodes are in a single component on all three connectivity levels
>>> G = nx.petersen_graph()
>>> k_components = nx.k_components(G)
Notes
-----
Moody and White [1]_ (appendix A) provide an algorithm for identifying
k-components in a graph, which is based on Kanevsky's algorithm [2]_
for finding all minimum-size node cut-sets of a graph (implemented in
:meth:`all_node_cuts` function):
1. Compute node connectivity, k, of the input graph G.
2. Identify all k-cutsets at the current level of connectivity using
Kanevsky's algorithm.
3. Generate new graph components based on the removal of
these cutsets. Nodes in a cutset belong to both sides
of the induced cut.
4. If the graph is neither complete nor trivial, return to 1;
else end.
This implementation also uses some heuristics (see [3]_ for details)
to speed up the computation.

k_edge_components : similar to this function, but uses edge-connectivity
instead of node-connectivity
