- periphery(G, e=None, usebounds=False, weight=None)[source]#
Returns the periphery of the graph G.
The periphery is the set of nodes with eccentricity equal to the diameter.
- GNetworkX graph
- eeccentricity dictionary, optional
A precomputed dictionary of eccentricities.
- weightstring, function, or None
If this is a string, then edge weights will be accessed via the edge attribute with this key (that is, the weight of the edge joining
G.edges[u, v][weight]). If no such edge attribute exists, the weight of the edge is assumed to be one.
If this is a function, the weight of an edge is the value returned by the function. The function must accept exactly three positional arguments: the two endpoints of an edge and the dictionary of edge attributes for that edge. The function must return a number.
If this is None, every edge has weight/distance/cost 1.
Weights stored as floating point values can lead to small round-off errors in distances. Use integer weights to avoid this.
Weights should be positive, since they are distances.
