is_tree¶

is_tree
(G)[source]¶ Returns \(True\) if \(G\) is a tree.
A tree is a connected graph with no undirected cycles.
For directed graphs, \(G\) is a tree if the underlying graph is a tree. The underlying graph is obtained by treating each directed edge as a single undirected edge in a multigraph.
Parameters: G : graph
The graph to test.
Returns: b : bool
A boolean that is \(True\) if \(G\) is a tree.

Notes
In another convention, a directed tree is known as a polytree and then tree corresponds to an arborescence.
