cycle_graph#

cycle_graph(n, create_using=None)[source]#

Returns the cycle graph $$C_n$$ of cyclically connected nodes.

$$C_n$$ is a path with its two end-nodes connected.

Parameters:
nint or iterable container of nodes

If n is an integer, nodes are from range(n). If n is a container of nodes, those nodes appear in the graph. Warning: n is not checked for duplicates and if present the resulting graph may not be as desired. Make sure you have no duplicates.

create_usingNetworkX graph constructor, optional (default=nx.Graph)

Graph type to create. If graph instance, then cleared before populated.

Notes

If create_using is directed, the direction is in increasing order.
