Talk:Graph (graph theory)

Things that need to be added to this article:

  • A proper definition of a graph. ("Formally, a graph $G$ is a pair, $G = (V, E)$, of a set $V$ of vertices together with a subset $E$ of pairs of members of $V$.") Done
  • Directed graphs, multigraphs, loopless graphs, simple graphs, and the distinctions between these.
  • "Path," "tree," "forest," "circuit" or "cycle," "Hamiltonian path" (and circuit and cycle), etc.
  • To distinguish between a formal graph (a pair of two sets) and a geometric realization of a graph.
  • Most of these words deserve their own page and so should be linked to.

I would have started doing this, but the first two points together are difficult to integrate into a single intro section. Help would be appreciated. --JBL 10:20, 4 January 2008 (EST)

The words that deserve their own page will be created eventually. For now, I'll just focus on integrating them into the article. I already defined path and cycle... I'll put a definition for tree in there, but I'm afraid that I don't know what some of the terms mean. Temperalxy 13:09, 4 January 2008 (EST)
Thanks. I'll continue to make some of the satellite pages and add to this one. --JBL 12:04, 11 January 2008 (EST)
