### CSC 413/513: Intro to Algorithms

Graph Algorithms

DFS

Depth-First Search
• Depth-first search is another strategy for exploring a graph
• Explore “deeper” in the graph whenever possible
• Edges are explored out of the most recently discovered vertex v that still has unexplored edges
• When all of v’s edges have been explored, backtrack to the vertex from which v was discovered
Depth-First Search
• Vertices initially colored white
• Then colored gray when discovered
• Then black when finished
DFS(G)

{

for each vertex u  G->V

{

u->color = WHITE;

}

time = 0;

for each vertex u  G->V

{

if (u->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(u);

}

}

DFS_Visit(u)

{

u->color = GREY;

time = time+1;

u->d = time;

{

if (v->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(v);

}

u->color = BLACK;

time = time+1;

u->f = time;

}

DFS(G)

{

for each vertex u  G->V

{

u->color = WHITE;

}

time = 0;

for each vertex u  G->V

{

if (u->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(u);

}

}

DFS_Visit(u)

{

u->color = GREY;

time = time+1;

u->d = time;

{

if (v->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(v);

}

u->color = BLACK;

time = time+1;

u->f = time;

}

Depth-First Search: The Code

What will be the running time?

DFS(G)

{

for each vertex u  G->V

{

u->color = WHITE;

}

time = 0;

for each vertex u  G->V

{

if (u->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(u);

}

}

DFS_Visit(u)

{

u->color = GREY;

time = time+1;

u->d = time;

{

if (v->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(v);

}

u->color = BLACK;

time = time+1;

u->f = time;

}

Depth-First Search: The Code

Running time: O(n2) because call DFS_Visit on each vertex, and the loop over Adj[] can run as many as |V| times

DFS(G)

{

for each vertex u  G->V

{

u->color = WHITE;

}

time = 0;

for each vertex u  G->V

{

if (u->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(u);

}

}

DFS_Visit(u)

{

u->color = GREY;

time = time+1;

u->d = time;

{

if (v->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(v);

}

u->color = BLACK;

time = time+1;

u->f = time;

}

Depth-First Search: The Code

BUT, there is actually a tighter bound. How many times will DFS_Visit() actually be called?

Depth-First Search Analysis
• For a node u
• DFS_Visit(u) cannot be called more than once
• DFS_Visit(u) cannot be called less than once
• Therefore, exactly once
• DFS_Visit(u) requires c + ϴ(|Adj(u)|) time
• The fact that recursive calls are made to v’s is accounted for by DFS_Visit(v)
• Total= ∑u ( c + ϴ(|Adj(u)|) ) = ϴ(V+E)
• Considered linear in input size, since adjacency list is a ϴ(V+E) representation
DFS: Kinds of edges
• DFS introduces an important distinction among edges in the original graph:
• Tree edge: encounter new (white) vertex
• The tree edges form a spanning forest
• Can tree edges form cycles? Why or why not?

Tree edges

DFS: Kinds of edges
• DFS introduces an important distinction among edges in the original graph:
• Tree edge: encounter new (white) vertex
• Back edge: from descendent to ancestor
• Encounter a grey vertex (grey to grey)

Tree edges

Back edges

DFS: Kinds of edges
• DFS introduces an important distinction among edges in the original graph:
• Tree edge: encounter new (white) vertex
• Back edge: from descendent to ancestor
• Forward edge: from ancestor to descendent
• Not a tree edge, though
• If forward edge, then grey node to black node
• Converse not true; could be a cross edge (see next)

Forward edges

DFS: Kinds of edges
• DFS introduces an important distinction among edges in the original graph:
• Tree edge: encounter new (white) vertex
• Back edge: from descendent to ancestor
• Forward edge: from ancestor to descendent
• Cross edge: between or within trees
• (Also) from a grey node to a black node
• No ancestor-descendent relation, if in the same DFS tree

Cross edges

DFS: Kinds of edges
• DFS introduces an important distinction among edges in the original graph:
• Tree edge: encounter new (white) vertex
• Back edge: from descendent to ancestor
• Forward edge: from ancestor to descendent
• Cross edge: between a tree or subtrees
• Note: tree & back edges are important; most algorithms don’t distinguish forward & cross
DFS: Kinds Of Edges
• Thm 22.10: If G is undirected, a DFS produces only tree and back edges
• Assume there’s a forward edge
• But F? edge must actually be a back edge (why?)

source

F?

DFS: Kinds Of Edges
• Thm 22.10: If G is undirected, a DFS produces only tree and back edges
• Assume there’s a cross edge
• But C? edge cannot be cross:
• must be explored from one of the vertices it connects, becoming a treevertex, before other vertex is explored
• So in fact the picture is wrong…bothlower tree edges cannot in fact betree edges

source

C?

DFS And Graph Cycles
• Thm: An undirected graph is acyclic iff a DFS yields no back edges
• If acyclic, then no back edges (because a back edge implies a cycle)
• If no back edges, then acyclic
• No back edges implies only tree edges (Why?)
• Only tree edges implies we have a tree or a forest
• Which by definition is acyclic
• Thus, can run DFS to find whether a graph has a cycle
DFS And Cycles
• How would you modify the code to detect cycles?

DFS_Visit(u)

{

u->color = GREY;

time = time+1;

u->d = time;

{

if (v->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(v);

{

u->color = WHITE;

}

time = 0;

for each vertex u  G->V

{

if (u->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(u);

}

}

If v->color == GREY and Pred(u)≠v, …

DFS And Cycles
• What will be the running time?

DFS(G)

{

for each vertex u  G->V

{

u->color = WHITE;

}

time = 0;

for each vertex u  G->V

{

if (u->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(u);

}

}

DFS_Visit(u)

{

u->color = GREY;

time = time+1;

u->d = time;

{

if (v->color == WHITE)

DFS_Visit(v);

}

u->color = BLACK;

time = time+1;

u->f = time;

}

DFS And Cycles
• What will be the running time?
• A: O(V+E)
• We can actually determine if cycles exist in O(V) time:
• In an undirected acyclic forest, |E|  |V| - 1. So if no cycle, then O(V+E) is O(V)
• If cycle, count the edges: if ever see |V| distinct edges, must have seen a back edge along the way
• Can halt and output “cycle exists”
• O(V) time
