Minimum size vertex separators

Description

List all vertex sets that are minimal (s,t) separators for some s and t, in an undirected graph.

Usage

min_st_separators(graph)

Arguments

graph

The input graph. It may be directed, but edge directions are ignored.

Details

A (s,t) vertex separator is a set of vertices, such that after their removal from the graph, there is no path between s and t in the graph.

A (s,t) vertex separator is minimal if none of its subsets is an (s,t) vertex separator.

Value

A list of numeric vectors. Each vector contains a vertex set (defined by vertex ids), each vector is an (s,t) separator of the input graph, for some s and t.
