Graph : simple and complex path
Posted 07 August 2012  09:25 AM
let's talk about this graph !
" A path with no repeated vertices is called a simple path "
i want a simple path from A to F
should i access all the vertices or few of them
ADCF < i didn't access E
ABCF < i didn't access E
ACF < i didn't access B,D
^
is that right answer ?
+
what's the defintion of complex path ?

Why wouldn't ABCEF be considered a simple path then?
I'm guessing it's a path with repeated vertices.

i'm just give a few examples !
one more question :
in simple and complex path should i access all the vertices or few of them ??

A path (simple or complex) does not need to use all vertices. In this graph, all paths from a to f are simple paths.

It doesn't matter. A path without repeating vertices is a simple path no matter how many nonrepeating vertices it contains. Likewise a path with repeating vertices is a complex path even if the total number of vertices in it is only 2.
