The difference between a set system and a hypergraph is in the questions being asked. In contrast with the polynomial-time recognition of planar graphsit is NP-complete to determine whether a hypergraph has a planar subdivision drawing, [22] but the existence of a drawing of this type may be tested efficiently when the adjacency pattern of the regions is constrained to be a path, cycle, or tree.

Graph partitioning and in particular, hypergraph partitioning has many applications to IC design [11] and parallel computing. This allows graphs with edge-loops, which need not contain vertices at all. One of them is the so-called mixed hypergraph coloring, when monochromatic edges are allowed. Berge-cyclicity can obviously be tested in linear time by an exploration of the incidence graph. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Hypergraphs.

H is k -regular if every vertex has degree k. Note that, with this definition of equality, graphs are self-dual:. A hypergraph H may be represented by a bipartite graph BG as follows: If a hypergraph is both edge- and vertex-symmetric, then the hypergraph is simply transitive. Note that all strongly isomorphic graphs are isomorphic, but not vice versa.


So a 2-uniform hypergraph is a graph, a 3-uniform hypergraph is a collection of unordered triples, and so on. However, it is often desirable to study hypergraphs where all hyperedges have the same cardinality; a k – uniform hypergraph is a hypergraph such that all its hyperedges have size k. There are two variations of this generalization. Views Read Edit View history.

Some methods for studying symmetries of graphs extend to hypergraphs. March”Multilevel hypergraph partitioning: However, the transitive closure of set membership for such hypergraphs does induce a partial orderand “flattens” the hypergraph into a partially ordered set.


In particular, there is no transitive closure of set membership for such hypergraphs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In one possible visual representation for hypergraphs, similar to the standard graph drawing style in which curves in the plane are used to depict graph edges, a hypergraph’s vertices are depicted as points, disks, or boxes, and its hyperedges are depicted as trees that have the vertices as their leaves.

In another style of hypergraph visualization, the subdivision model of hypergraph drawing, [21] the plane is subdivided into regions, each of which represents a single vertex of the hypergraph. One possible generalization of a hypergraph is to allow edges to point at other edges. The transversal hypergraph of H is the hypergraph XF whose edge set F consists of all minimal transversals of H.

A hypergraph is hylergraphs to be vertex-transitive or vertex-symmetric if all of its vertices are symmetric. bergee

In some literature edges are referred to as hyperlinks or connectors. Computing the transversal hypergraph has applications in combinatorial optimizationin game theoryand in several fields of computer science such as machine learningindexing of databasesthe satisfiability problemdata miningand computer program optimization.

When the edges of a hypergraph are explicitly labeled, one has the additional notion of strong isomorphism. In contrast with ordinary undirected graphs for which there is a single natural notion of cycles and acyclic graphsthere are multiple natural non-equivalent definitions of acyclicity for hypergraphs which collapse to ordinary graph acyclicity for the special case of ordinary graphs.

A hypergraph is bipartite if and only if its vertices can be partitioned into two classes U and V in such a way that each hyperedge with cardinality at least 2 contains at least one vertex from both classes. An algorithm for tree-query membership of a distributed query. In one, the edges consist not only of a set of vertices, but may also contain subsets of vertices, subsets of subsets of vertices and so on ad infinitum.


Hypergraphs can be viewed as incidence structures. The collection of hypergraphs is a category with hypergraph homomorphisms as morphisms. When a mixed hypergraph is colorable, then the minimum and maximum number of used colors are called the lower and upper chromatic numbers respectively. The graph corresponding to the Levi graph of this generalization is a directed acyclic graph. Hypergraphs for which there exists a coloring using up to k colors are referred to as k-colorable.

A graph is just a 2-uniform hypergraph. In mathematicsa hypergraph is a generalization of a graph in which an edge can join any number of vertices.

A hypergraph homomorphism is a map from the vertex set of one hypergraph to bereg such that each edge maps to one other edge. A transversal T is called minimal if no proper subset of T is a transversal. For such a hypergraph, set membership then provides an ordering, but the ordering is neither a partial order nor a preordersince it is not transitive. Conversely, any bipartite graph with fixed parts and no unconnected nodes in the second part represents some hypergraph in the manner described above.

In this sense it is a direct generalization of graph coloring. Alternatively, such a hypergraph is said to have Property B. In other words, one such hypergraph is a collection of sets, each such set a hyperedge connecting k nodes.
