Create a graph from the Graph Atlas


graph_from_atlas creates graphs from the book ‘An Atlas of Graphs’ by Roland C. Read and Robin J. Wilson. The atlas contains all undirected graphs with up to seven vertices, numbered from 0 up to 1252. The graphs are listed:

  1. in increasing order of number of nodes;

  2. for a fixed number of nodes, in increasing order of the number of edges;

  3. for fixed numbers of nodes and edges, in increasing order of the degree sequence, for example 111223 < 112222;

  4. for fixed degree sequence, in increasing number of automorphisms.






The id of the graph to create.
