Graph Search Methods A vertex u is reachable from vertex v iff there is a path from v to u. A search method starts at a given vertex v and visits/labels/marks every vertex that is reachable from v. 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10

Graph Search Methods Many graph problems solved by a search method – Finding a path from one vertex to another. – Determining whether a graph is connected – Find a spanning tree – Finding a minimum-cost path/spanning tree Commonly used search methods – Breadth-first search (BFS) – Depth-first search (DFS)

Breadth-First Search (BFS) Algorithm BFS algorithm is the method of starting at a vertex and identifying all vertices reachable from it Read Section 16.8.1 and the pseudo-code of BFS in Figure 16.7 Similar to the level-order traversal of a binary tree

Breadth-First Search (BFS) Algorithm Visit the starting vertex and put into a FIFO queue Repeatedly remove a vertex from the queue, visit its unvisited adjacent vertices, put newly visited vertices into the queue All vertices reachable from the start vertex (including the start vertex) are visited When the queue becomes empty, the search is terminated

Breadth-First Search Example Start search at vertex 1. 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10

Breadth-First Search Example Mark/label start vertex and put in a FIFO queue. Remove 1 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 1

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 2 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. Are there any newly visited vertices? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 2 4

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 4 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. Are there any newly visited vertices? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 4 5 3 6

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 5 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. Are there any newly visited vertices? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 5 3 6

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 3 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. Are there any newly visited vertices? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 3 6 9 7

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 6 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. Are there any newly visited vertices? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 6 9 7

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 9 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put the visited vertices in Queue. Are there any newly visited vertices? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 9 7

Breadth-First Search Example Remove 7 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put in Queue. 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 7 8

Breadth-First Search Example 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue 8 Remove 8 from Queue; Visit adjacent unvisited vertices; Put in Queue.

Breadth-First Search Example Queue is empty, thus the search terminates. 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10 FIFO queue

Breadth-First Search Example What was the order of visited vertices?  1, 2, 4, 5, 3, 6, 9, 7, 8 What is the subgraph formed by the edges used to reach new vertices during the BFS? 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7

Time Complexity Each visited vertex is put on the queue exactly once. When a vertex is removed from the queue, we examine its adjacent vertices. – O(n) if adjacency matrix used. – O(vertex degree) if adjacency lists used. Total time – O(n 2 ) if adjacency matrix used – O(n+e) if adjacency lists used where e is the sum of vertex degrees and therefore e is also the number of edges.

Path Finding Problem from vertex u to vertex v Start a breadth-first search at vertex u. Terminate if either of the following occurs – successfully when vertex v is visited or – unsuccessfully when queue becomes empty but v is not visited Time – O(n 2 ) when adjacency matrix used – O(n+e) when adjacency lists used (e is number of edges)

Is a Graph Connected? Start a breadth-first search at any vertex of the graph. A graph is connected iff all n vertices are visited. Time – O(n 2 ) when adjacency matrix used – O(n+e) when adjacency lists used (e is number of edges)

Connected Components Start a breadth-first search at any unvisited vertex of the graph. Newly visited vertices (plus edges between them) define a component. Repeat until all vertices are visited. Time – O(n 2 ) when adjacency matrix used – O(n+e) when adjacency lists used (e is number of edges)

Connected Components 2 3 5 4 1 8 9 6 7 11 10

Breath-First Spanning Tree Start a breadth-first search at any vertex of the graph. If a graph is connected, the n-1 edges used to get to unvisited vertices define a spanning tree  breadth-first spanning tree Time – O(n 2 ) when adjacency matrix used – O(n+e) when adjacency lists used (e is number of edges)

Depth-First Search (DFS) Algorithm DFS algorithm is an alternative to BFS Similar to the pre-order traversal of a binary tree See Figure 16.18 for the pseudo-code of DFS

Visit the starting vertex v and mark it as reached Select an unreached vertex u adjacent from v If such a vertex does not exist, the search terminates, otherwise a depth-first search from u is initiated When this search is completed, we select another unreached vertex adjacent to from v If such a vertex does not exist, then the search terminates, otherwise a depth-first search starts from this vertex and so on….. Depth-First Search (DFS) Algorithm
