Arguments
g
an instance of the graph class
Details

From reference (1), p. 270: A set of nodes is a lambda-set if any pair of nodes in the lambda set has larger edge connectivity than any pair of nodes consisting of one node from within the lamda set and a second node from outside the lamda set.

As stated in reference (2), a lambda set is a maximal subset of nodes who have more edge-independent paths connecting them to each other than to outsiders.

A lambda set could be characterized by the minimum edge connectivity k among its members, and could be called lambda-k sets.

Let N be maximum edge connectivity of graph g, we output all the lambda-k set for all k = 1, ..., N.

Value

Maximum edge connectivity, N, of the graph g, and A list of length N; k-th entry (k = 1, ..., N) is a list of all the lambda-k sets in graph g.
