interval_graph(intervals)[source]

Generates an interval graph for a list of intervals given.

In graph theory, an interval graph is an undirected graph formed from a set of closed intervals on the real line, with a vertex for each interval and an edge between vertices whose intervals intersect. It is the intersection graph of the intervals.

Parameters
intervalsa sequence of intervals, say (l, r) where l is the left end,
and r is the right end of the closed interval.
Returns
Gnetworkx graph
Raises
TypeError

if intervals contains None or an element which is not collections.abc.Sequence or not a length of 2.

ValueError

if intervals contains an interval such that min1 > max1 where min1,max1 = interval

Examples

>>> intervals = [(-2, 3), [1, 4], (2, 3), (4, 6)]
>>> G = nx.interval_graph(intervals)
>>> sorted(G.edges)
[((-2, 3), (1, 4)), ((-2, 3), (2, 3)), ((1, 4), (2, 3)), ((1, 4), (4, 6))]
