Number of automorphisms

Description

Calculate the number of automorphisms of a graph, i.e. the number of isomorphisms to itself.

Usage

automorphisms(graph, sh = "fm")

Arguments

graph

The input graph, it is treated as undirected.

sh

The splitting heuristics for the BLISS algorithm. Possible values are: ‘f’: first non-singleton cell, ‘fl’: first largest non-singleton cell, ‘fs’: first smallest non-singleton cell, ‘fm’: first maximally non-trivially connected non-singleton cell, ‘flm’: first largest maximally non-trivially connected non-singleton cell, ‘fsm’: first smallest maximally non-trivially connected non-singleton cell.

Details

An automorphism of a graph is a permutation of its vertices which brings the graph into itself.

This function calculates the number of automorphism of a graph using the BLISS algorithm. See also the BLISS homepage at http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/bliss/index.html.

Value

A named list with the following members:

group_size

The size of the automorphism group of the input graph, as a string. This number is exact if igraph was compiled with the GMP library, and approximate otherwise.

nof_nodes

The number of nodes in the search tree.

nof_leaf_nodes

The number of leaf nodes in the search tree.

nof_bad_nodes

Number of bad nodes.

nof_canupdates

Number of canrep updates.

max_level

Maximum level.

Examples


## A ring has n*2 automorphisms, you can "turn" it by 0-9 vertices
## and each of these graphs can be "flipped"
g <- make_ring(10)
automorphisms(g)
