attracting_components¶
- attracting_components(G)[source]¶
Generates a list of attracting components in \(G\).
An attracting component in a directed graph \(G\) is a strongly connected component with the property that a random walker on the graph will never leave the component, once it enters the component.
The nodes in attracting components can also be thought of as recurrent nodes. If a random walker enters the attractor containing the node, then the node will be visited infinitely often.
Parameters : G : DiGraph, MultiDiGraph
The graph to be analyzed.
Returns : attractors : generator of list
The list of attracting components, sorted from largest attracting component to smallest attracting component.
