Minumal vertex separators

Check whether a given set of vertices is a minimal vertex separator.

Usage
is_min_separator(graph, candidate)
Arguments
graph

The input graph. It may be directed, but edge directions are ignored.

candidate

A numeric vector giving the vertex ids of the candidate separator.

Details

is_min_separator decides whether the supplied vertex set is a minimal vertex separator. A minimal vertex separator is a vertex separator, such that none of its subsets is a vertex separator.

In the special case of a fully connected graph with \(n\) vertices, each set of \(n-1\) vertices is considered to be a vertex separator.

Value

A logical scalar, whether the supplied vertex set is a (minimal) vertex separator or not.

See Also

min_separators lists all vertex separator of minimum size.
