# find_induced_nodes#

find_induced_nodes(G, s, t, treewidth_bound=9223372036854775807)[source]#

Returns the set of induced nodes in the path from s to t.

Parameters:
Ggraph

A chordal NetworkX graph

snode

Source node to look for induced nodes

tnode

Destination node to look for induced nodes

treewidth_bound: float

Maximum treewidth acceptable for the graph H. The search for induced nodes will end as soon as the treewidth_bound is exceeded.

Returns:
induced_nodesSet of nodes

The set of induced nodes in the path from s to t in G

Raises:
NetworkXError

The algorithm does not support DiGraph, MultiGraph and MultiDiGraph. If the input graph is an instance of one of these classes, a `NetworkXError` is raised. The algorithm can only be applied to chordal graphs. If the input graph is found to be non-chordal, a `NetworkXError` is raised.

Notes

G must be a chordal graph and (s,t) an edge that is not in G.

If a treewidth_bound is provided, the search for induced nodes will end as soon as the treewidth_bound is exceeded.

The algorithm is inspired by Algorithm 4 in [1]. A formal definition of induced node can also be found on that reference.
