2 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Overview Depth-first search (DFS) DFS Forest Breadth-first search (BFS) Some variants of DFS and BFS Graph modeling

3 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Prerequisites Elementary graph theory Implementations of DFS and BFS

4 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training What is a graph? A set of vertices and edges vertex edge

5 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Trees and related terms root siblings descendents children ancestors parent

6 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training What is graph traversal? Given: a graph Goal: visit all (or some) vertices and edges of the graph using some strategy Two simple strategies: –Depth-first search –Breadth-first search

7 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Depth-first search (DFS) A graph searching method Algorithm: at any time, go further (depth) if you can; otherwise, retreat

8 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training DFS (Pseudo code) DFS (vertex u) { mark u as visited for each vertex v directly reachable from u if v is unvisited DFS (v) } Initially all vertices are marked as unvisited

9 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training F A B C D E DFS (Demonstration) unvisited visited

10 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training “Advanced” DFS Apart from just visiting the vertices, DFS can also provide us with valuable information DFS can be enhanced by introducing: –birth time and death time of a vertex birth time: when the vertex is first visited death time: when we retreat from the vertex –DFS tree –parent of a vertex (see next slide)

11 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training DFS tree / forest A rooted tree The root is the start vertex If v is first visited from u, then u is the parent of v in the DFS tree

13 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Classification of edges Tree edge Forward edge Back edge Cross edge Question: which type of edges is always absent in an undirected graph? A B C F E D G H

14 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Determination of edge types How to determine the type of an arbitrary edge (u, v) after DFS? Tree edge –parent [v] = u Forward edge –not a tree edge; and –birth [v] > birth [u]; and –death [v] < death [u] How about back edge and cross edge?

15 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Applications of DFS Forests Topological sorting (Tsort) Strongly-connected components (SCC) Some more “advanced” algorithms

16 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Example: SCC A graph is strongly-connected if –for any pair of vertices u and v, one can go from u to v and from v to u. Informally speaking, an SCC of a graph is a subset of vertices that –forms a strongly-connected subgraph –does not form a strongly-connected subgraph with the addition of any new vertex

17 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training SCC (Illustration)

18 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training SCC (Algorithm) Compute the DFS forest of the graph G Reverse all edges in G to form G’ Compute a DFS forest of G’, but always choose the vertex with the latest death time when choosing the root for a new tree The SCCs of G are the DFS trees in the DFS forest of G’

21 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Breadth-first search (BFS) A graph searching method Instead of searching “deeply” along one path, BFS tries to search all paths at the same time Makes use of a data structure - queue

22 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training BFS (Pseudo code) while queue not empty dequeue the first vertex u from queue for each vertex v directly reachable from u if v is unvisited enqueue v to queue mark v as visited Initially all vertices except the start vertex are marked as unvisited and the queue contains the start vertex only

23 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training A B C D E F G H I J BFS (Demonstration) unvisited visited visited (dequeued) Queue: ABCFDEHGJI

24 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Applications of BFS Shortest paths finding Flood-fill (can also be handled by DFS)

25 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Comparisons of DFS and BFS DFSBFS Depth-firstBreadth-first StackQueue Does not guarantee shortest paths Guarantees shortest paths

26 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Bidirectional search (BDS) Searches simultaneously from both the start vertex and goal vertex Commonly implemented as bidirectional BFS startgoal

27 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Iterative deepening search (IDS) Iteratively performs DFS with increasing depth bound Shortest paths are guaranteed

28 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training What is graph modeling? Conversion of a problem into a graph problem Sometimes a problem can be easily solved once its underlying graph model is recognized Graph modeling appears almost every year in NOI or IOI

29 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Basics of graph modeling A few steps: –identify the vertices and the edges –identify the objective of the problem –state the objective in graph terms –implementation: construct the graph from the input instance run the suitable graph algorithms on the graph convert the output to the required format

30 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Simple examples (1) Given a grid maze with obstacles, find a shortest path between two given points start goal

31 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Simple examples (2) A student has the phone numbers of some other students Suppose you know all pairs (A, B) such that A has B’s number Now you want to know Alan’s number, what is the minimum number of calls you need to make?

32 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Simple examples (2) Vertex: student Edge: whether A has B’s number Add an edge from A to B if A has B’s number Problem: find a shortest path from your vertex to Alan’s vertex

33 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (1) Same settings as simple example 1 You know a trick – walking through an obstacle! However, it can be used for only once What should a vertex represent? –your position only? –your position + whether you have used the trick

34 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (1) A vertex is in the form (position, used) The vertices are divided into two groups –trick used –trick not used

35 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (1) start goal unused used start goal

36 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (2) The famous 8-puzzle Given a state, find the moves that bring it to the goal state

37 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (2) What does a vertex represent? –the position of the empty square? –the number of tiles that are in wrong positions? –the state (the positions of the eight tiles) What are the edges? What is the equivalent graph problem?

38 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (2)

39 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (3) Theseus and Minotaur –http://www.logicmazes.com/theseus.htmlhttp://www.logicmazes.com/theseus.html –Extract: Theseus must escape from a maze. There is also a mechanical Minotaur in the maze. For every turn that Theseus takes, the Minotaur takes two turns. The Minotaur follows this program for each of his two turns: First he tests if he can move horizontally and get closer to Theseus. If he can, he will move one square horizontally. If he can’t, he will test if he could move vertically and get closer to Theseus. If he can, he will move one square vertically. If he can’t move either horizontally or vertically, then he just skips that turn.

40 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Complex examples (3) What does a vertex represent? –Theseus’ position –Minotaur’s position –Both How long do you need to solve the last maze? How long does a well-written program take to solve it?

41 Advanced DFS & BFS HKOI Training Some more examples How can the followings be modeled? –Tilt maze (Single-goal mazes only) –Double title maze –No-left-turn maze –Same as complex example 1, but you can use the trick for k times
