build_auxiliary_node_connectivity¶

build_auxiliary_node_connectivity
(G)[source]¶ Creates a directed graph D from an undirected graph G to compute flow based node connectivity.
For an undirected graph G having nodes and edges we derive a directed graph D with nodes and arcs by replacing each original node with two nodes , linked by an (internal) arc in D. Then for each edge (, ) in G we add two arcs (, ) and (, ) in D. Finally we set the attribute capacity = 1 for each arc in D [1].

A dictionary with a mapping between nodes in the original graph and the auxiliary digraph is stored as a graph attribute: H.graph[‘mapping’].
