"""Returns True if the graph is distance regular, False otherwise.
A connected graph G is distance-regular if for any nodes x,y
and any integers i,j=0,1,...,d (where d is the graph
diameter), the number of vertices at distance i from x and
distance j from y depends only on i,j and the graph distance
between x and y, independently of the choice of x and y.
Parameters
----------
G: Networkx graph (undirected)
Returns
-------
bool
True if the graph is Distance Regular, False otherwise
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.hypercube_graph(6)
>>> nx.is_distance_regular(G)
True

"""Returns global parameters for a given intersection array.
Given a distance-regular graph G with integers b_i, c_i,i = 0,....,d
such that for any 2 vertices x,y in G at a distance i=d(x,y), there
are exactly c_i neighbors of y at a distance of i-1 from x and b_i
neighbors of y at a distance of i+1 from x.
Thus, a distance regular graph has the global parameters,
[[c_0,a_0,b_0],[c_1,a_1,b_1],......,[c_d,a_d,b_d]] for the
intersection array [b_0,b_1,.....b_{d-1};c_1,c_2,.....c_d]
where a_i+b_i+c_i=k , k= degree of every vertex.
Parameters
----------
b : list
c : list
Returns
-------
iterable
An iterable over three tuples.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.dodecahedral_graph()
>>> b, c = nx.intersection_array(G)
>>> list(nx.global_parameters(b, c))

"""Returns True if and only if the given graph is strongly
regular.
An undirected graph is *strongly regular* if
* it is regular,
* each pair of adjacent vertices has the same number of neighbors in
common,

in common.
Each strongly regular graph is a distance-regular graph.
Conversely, if a distance-regular graph has diameter two, then it is
a strongly regular graph. For more information on distance-regular
graphs, see :func:`is_distance_regular`.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
An undirected graph.
Returns
-------
bool
Whether `G` is strongly regular.
Examples
--------
The cycle graph on five vertices is strongly regular. It is
two-regular, each pair of adjacent vertices has no shared neighbors,
and each pair of nonadjacent vertices has one shared neighbor::
