class Cut(VertexClustering):

Known subclasses: igraph.cut.Flow

View In Hierarchy

A cut of a given graph.

This is a simple class used to represent cuts returned by Graph.mincut(), Graph.all_st_cuts() and other functions that calculate cuts.

A cut is a special vertex clustering with only two clusters. Besides the usual VertexClustering methods, it also has the following attributes:

  • value - the value (capacity) of the cut. It is equal to the number of edges if there are no capacities on the edges.
  • partition - vertex IDs in the parts created after removing edges in the cut
  • cut - edge IDs in the cut
  • es - an edge selector restricted to the edges in the cut.

You can use indexing on this object to obtain lists of vertex IDs for both sides of the partition.

This class is usually not instantiated directly, everything is taken care of by the functions that return cuts.

Examples:

>>> from igraph import Graph
>>> g = Graph.Ring(20)
>>> mc = g.mincut()
>>> print(mc.value)
2.0
>>> print(min(len(x) for x in mc))
1
>>> mc.es["color"] = "red"

Inherited from VertexClustering:

Class Method ​From​Attribute Creates a vertex clustering based on the value of a vertex attribute.
Method __plot__ Plots the clustering to the given Cairo context in the given bounding box.
Method as​_cover Returns a VertexCover that contains the same clusters as this clustering.
Method cluster​_graph Returns a graph where each cluster is contracted into a single vertex.
Method crossing Returns a boolean vector where element i is True iff edge i lies between clusters, False otherwise.
Method giant Returns the largest cluster of the clustered graph.
Method recalculate​_modularity Recalculates the stored modularity value.
Method subgraph Get the subgraph belonging to a given cluster.
Method subgraphs Gets all the subgraphs belonging to each of the clusters.
Property graph Returns the graph belonging to this object
Property modularity Returns the modularity score
Method _formatted​_cluster​_iterator Iterates over the clusters and formats them into a string to be presented in the summary.
Method _recalculate​_modularity​_safe Recalculates the stored modularity value and swallows all exceptions raised by the modularity function (if any).

Inherited from Clustering (via VertexClustering):

Method __getitem__ Returns the members of the specified cluster.
Method __iter__ Iterates over the clusters in this clustering.
Method __len__ Returns the number of clusters.
Method compare​_to Compares this clustering to another one using some similarity or distance metric.
Method size Returns the size of a given cluster.
Method size​_histogram Returns the histogram of cluster sizes.
Method sizes Returns the size of given clusters.
Method summary Returns the summary of the clustering.
Property membership Returns the membership vector.
Property n Returns the number of elements covered by this clustering.
