Keywords

##### Usage
is.triangulated(g)
##### Arguments
g
an instance of the graph class
##### Details

An undirected graph G = (V, E) is triangulated (i.e. chordal) if all cycles [v1, v2, ..., vk] of length 4 or more have a chord, i.e., an edge [vi, vj] with j != i +/- 1 (mod k)

An equivalent definition of chordal graphs is:

G is chordal iff either G is an empty graph, or there is an v in V such that

1. the neighborhood of v (i.e., v and its adjacent nodes) forms a clique, and
2. recursively, G-v is chordal

##### Value

The return value is TRUE if g is triangulated and FALSE otherwise. An error is thrown if the graph is not undirected; you might use ugraph to compute the underlying graph.
