Arguments
g
an instance of the graph class
Details

A biconnected graph is a connected graph that remains connected when any one of its vertices, and all the edges incident on this vertex, is removed and the graph remains connected. A biconnected component of a graph is a subgraph which is biconnected. An integer label is assigned to each edge to indicate which biconnected component it's in.

A vertex in a graph is called an articulation point if removing it increases the number of connected components.

See the documentation for the Boost Graph Library for more details.

Value

For biConnComp: a vector whose length is no. of biconnected components, each entry is a list of nodes that are on the same biconnected components.For articulationPoints: a vector of articulation points in the graph.
