##### Articulation points of a graph

Articuation points or cut vertices are vertices whose removal increases the number of connected components in a graph.

- Keywords
- graphs

##### Usage

`articulation_points(graph)`

##### Arguments

- graph
- The input graph. It is treated as an undirected graph, even if it is directed.

##### Details

Articuation points or cut vertices are vertices whose removal increases the number of connected components in a graph. If the original graph was connected, then the removal of a single articulation point makes it undirected. If a graph contains no articulation points, then its vertex connectivity is at least two.

##### Value

- A numeric vector giving the vertex ids of the articulation points of the input graph.

##### Examples

```
g <- disjoint_union( make_full_graph(5), make_full_graph(5) )
clu <- components(g)$membership
g <- add_edges(g, c(match(1, clu), match(2, clu)) )
articulation_points(g)
```
