networkx.algorithms.graphical.is_multigraphical

is_multigraphical(sequence)[source]

Returns True if some multigraph can realize the sequence.

Parameters
sequencelist

A list of integers

Returns
validbool

True if deg_sequence is a multigraphic degree sequence and False if not.

Notes

The worst-case run time is \(O(n)\) where \(n\) is the length of the sequence.
