Description (last modified by )
The current implementation of lex_BFS() is quadratic, which is not optimal. The usual way to do it in linear time is through a clever use of doubly linked lists, but in (1) there is a way with static arrays, which I coded in Python.
There is one thing, though: in (2) there is a new algorithm for is_interval() that avoids PQtrees, and just uses various passes of lex_BFS() (implemented with doubly linked lists). So maybe in the long run it would be better to do it with doubly linked lists in Cython.

Replying to ncohen: Thank you! Here I fixed the "build/" thing, but I'm having trouble running the tests (in OSX 10.7 and Ubuntu 11.04), so expect it to break some of them. I'm sorry.

Thank you! Here I fixed the "build/" thing, but I'm having trouble running the tests (in OSX 10.7 and Ubuntu 11.04), so expect it to break some of them. I'm sorry.
Perhaps I can help you with this test problem ? The thing is that right now the patch does not seem to work :

On random interval graphs sometimes the is_interval function works, sometimes it does not... ^^;
I tested you patch after having applied #11738 and #11735 but I do not think this is where the bug comes from. Could you also add some comments to your code, along with a reference to the paper you are following for this implementation ? :)

Replying to ncohen: Hello Nathann, I think the bug is now fixed (it was a very simple mistake). I added the reference, but the comments are still missing. Thanks!

Perhaps we can help with your problem running doctests ? It something does not work on this side, it is another bug of Sage's ! ;)

I think this patch is working now and passes all the doctests. I'm sure the errors I get while doctesting are bugs of Sage 4.8 (for example, on both Ubuntu 10.10 and OS X 10.7 I get an error in line 15146 of generic_graph.py: "ValueError?: Database has no tablegraph_data.").

Helloooooo Diego !!
I'm sorry but your patch can not be applied on top of the latest release of Sage, that is sage5.0beta11 (https://groups.google.com/d/topic/sagerelease/XnyN3tx4Bow/discussion). Plenty of stuff has been added in the 5.0beta? series, and that is probably the explanation :)
About your path, though : it removes the old code that computed (more slowly) a BFS ordering for the vertices. This being said, I think this code could still be useful to ... check that the new algorithm actually returns a correct BFS ordering ! Of course, as it is slower, this ordering should not be checked by default, but it would be nice to be able to run doctests which check for each computation of BFS ordering whether this ordering is indeed correct. This can be done by actually checking in turn that each vertex of the ordering is maximal at the moment when it is removed.
Do you think it could be possible to comment your code a bit more ? As it is, reading the paper to understand what happens seems to be the only alternative :)

Hello,
This patch has been sleeping for very very long time.
I did a first git version of the patch with some corrections. This is far from final version and we have currently 2 implementations to ease tests. To use the new version, you need to set parameter new_version=True
.
Since the code has no comments, it is hard to know whats going on. I have corrected at least one bug (a missing j = l
), but I have the following issue:
sage: g = graphs.PathGraph(3).lexicographic_product(graphs.CompleteGraph(2)) sage: g.lex_BFS(reverse=True) [(2, 1), (2, 0), (1, 1), (1, 0), (0, 1), (0, 0)] sage: g.lex_BFS(reverse=True, new_version=True) [(2, 1), (2, 0), (1, 1), (1, 0), (0, 1), (0, 0)] sage: g.lex_BFS(reverse=False) [(0, 0), (0, 1), (1, 0), (1, 1), (2, 0), (2, 1)] sage: g.lex_BFS(reverse=False, new_version=True) [(0, 0), (0, 1), (1, 0), (1, 1), (2, 0), (2, 1)]
The new version is more consistant (and also way faster). Furthermore, on this example, both reverse orderings are correct.
However, when making the new version the default one, many tests for is_chordal
and is_interval
are broken.
Any help is welcome.
David.

Hello Diego !!!
Same comment (see #11738) for this patch about the "build/" folder. I also expect that this patch breaks doctests in Sage's library, so please check it too, correcting the doctests themselves if it makes sense
:)
