Graph algorithms

To get insights from graphs, many algorithms have been developed. In this chapter, we'll use a well-known graph in NetworkX, that is, the Krackhardt Kite graph. It is a dummy graph containing 10 nodes, and it is typically used to proof graph algorithms. David Krackhardt is the creator of the structure, which has the shape of a kite. It's composed of two different zones. In the first zone (composed of nodes 0 to 6), the nodes are interlinked; in the other zone (nodes 7 to 9), they are connected as a chain:

In: G = nx.krackhardt_kite_graph()    nx.draw_networkx(G)

In the following plot, you can examine the Krackhardt Kite's graph structure:

Let's start with connectivity. Two nodes of a graph are connected if there ...
