I am going to create a graph representation using a adjacency list. How do I represent the vertices and the connected vertices??? I am thinking of using a set of hash map to represent all the vertices and linked list to represent the adjacency vertices. But my problem comes to how do I connect from the vertices in the hash map into the linked list?? Say that in the hash map I have the vertices number from 0 up to n as the key, and what is the value here??

here's the code that I have so far:

I am just worried that this won't work, any suggestions??

public class Graph { private ArrayList<Integer> vertices; private LinkedList<Integer>[] edges; private int numVertices = 0; public Graph(int numVertices) { this.numVertices = numVertices; vertices = new ArrayList<Integer>(); edges = (LinkedList<Integer>[]) new LinkedList[numVertices]; for (int i = 0; i < numVertices; i++) { vertices.add(i); edges[i] = new LinkedList<Integer>(); } } public void addEdge(int source, int destination) { int i = vertices.indexOf(source); int j = vertices.indexOf(destination); if (i != -1 || j != -1) { edges[i].addFirst(destination); edges[j].addFirst(source); } }

I am just worried that this won't work, any suggestions??
