##### Compute connected components for an undirected graph

Compute connected components for an undirected graph

Keywords
models
##### Usage
init.incremental.components(g)
incremental.components(g)
same.component(g, node1, node2)
##### Arguments
g
an instance of the graph class
node1
one vertex of the given graph
node2
another vertex of the given graph
##### Details

This family of functions work together to calculate the connected components of an undirected graph. The algorithm is based on the disjoint-sets. It works where the graph is growing by adding new edges. Call "init.incremental.components" to initialize the calculation on a new graph. Call "incremental.components" to re-calculate connected components after growing the graph. Call "same.component" to learn if two given vertices are in the same connected components. Currently, the codes can only handle ONE incremental graph at a time. When you start working on another graph by calling "init.incremental.components", the disjoint-sets info on the previous graph is lost. See documentation on Incremental Connected Components in Boost Graph Library for more details.

##### Value

Output from init.incremental.components is a list of component numbers for each vertex in the graph.Output from incremental.components is a list of component numbers for each vertex in the graph.Output from same.component is true if both nodes are in the same connected component, otherwise it's false.
