``graph_tool.search``
---------------------
This module includes several search algorithms, which are customizable to
arbitrary purposes. It is mostly a wrapper around the Visitor interface of the
`Boost Graph Library <http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/release/libs/graph/doc/visitor_concepts.html>`_,
and the respective search functions.

Parameters
----------
g : :class:`~graph_tool.Graph`
Graph to be used.
source : :class:`~graph_tool.Vertex` (optional, default: ``None``)
Source vertex. If unspecified, all vertices will be traversed, by
iterating over starting vertices according to their index in increasing
order.
visitor : :class:`~graph_tool.search.BFSVisitor` (optional, default: ``BFSVisitor()``)
A visitor object that is invoked at the event points inside the

Notes
-----
A breadth-first traversal visits vertices that are closer to the source
before visiting vertices that are further away. In this context "distance"
is defined as the number of edges in the shortest path from the source
vertex.
The time complexity is :math:`O(V + E)`.
The pseudo-code for the BFS algorithm is listed below, with the annotated
event points, for which the given visitor object will be called with the
appropriate method.

def tree_edge(self, e):
self.pred[e.target()] = int(e.source())
self.dist[e.target()] = self.dist[e.source()] + 1
With the above class defined, we can perform the BFS search as follows.

Notes
-----
When possible, a depth-first traversal chooses a vertex adjacent to the
current vertex to visit next. If all adjacent vertices have already been
discovered, or there are no adjacent vertices, then the algorithm backtracks
to the last vertex that had undiscovered neighbors. Once all reachable
vertices have been visited, the algorithm selects from any remaining
undiscovered vertices and continues the traversal. The algorithm finishes
when all vertices have been visited.
The time complexity is :math:`O(V + E)`.

event points, for which the given visitor object will be called with the

Notes
-----
Dijkstra's algorithm finds all the shortest paths from the source vertex to
every other vertex by iteratively "growing" the set of vertices S to which
it knows the shortest path. At each step of the algorithm, the next vertex
added to S is determined by a priority queue. The queue contains the
vertices in V - S prioritized by their distance label, which is the length
of the shortest path seen so far for each vertex. The vertex u at the top of
the priority queue is then added to S, and each of its out-edges is relaxed:
if the distance to u plus the weight of the out-edge (u,v) is less than the
distance label for v then the estimated distance for vertex v is
reduced. The algorithm then loops back, processing the next vertex at the
top of the priority queue. The algorithm finishes when the priority queue is
empty.
The time complexity is :math:`O(E + V \log V)`.
The pseudo-code for Dijkstra's algorithm is listed below, with the annotated
event points, for which the given visitor object will be called with the
appropriate method.

Notes
-----
The Bellman-Ford algorithm [bellman-ford]_ solves the single-source shortest
paths problem for a graph with both positive and negative edge weights. If
you only need to solve the shortest paths problem for positive edge weights,
:func:`~graph_tool.search.dijkstra_search` provides a more efficient
alternative. If all the edge weights are all equal, then
:func:`~graph_tool.search.bfs_search` provides an even more efficient
alternative.
The Bellman-Ford algorithm proceeds by looping through all of the edges in
the graph, applying the relaxation operation to each edge. In the following
pseudo-code, ``v`` is a vertex adjacent to ``u``, ``w`` maps edges to their
weight, and ``d`` is a distance map that records the length of the shortest
path to each vertex seen so far. ``p`` is a predecessor map which records
the parent of each vertex, which will ultimately be the parent in the
shortest paths tree
::
RELAX(u, v, w, d, p)
if (w(u,v) + d[u] < d[v])
d[v] := w(u,v) + d[u] relax edge (u,v)
p[v] := u
else
... edge (u,v) is not relaxed
The algorithm repeats this loop ``|V|`` times after which it is guaranteed
that the distances to each vertex have been reduced to the minimum possible
unless there is a negative cycle in the graph. If there is a negative cycle,
then there will be edges in the graph that were not properly minimized. That
is, there will be edges ``(u,v)`` such that ``w(u,v) + d[u] < d[v]``. The
algorithm loops over the edges in the graph one final time to check if all
the edges were minimized, returning true if they were and returning false
otherwise.
::
BELLMAN-FORD(G)
for each vertex u in V
d[u] := infinity
p[u] := u
end for
for i := 1 to |V|-1
for each edge (u,v) in E examine edge (u,v)
RELAX(u, v, w, d, p)
end for
end for
for each edge (u,v) in E
if (w(u,v) + d[u] < d[v])
return (false, , ) edge (u,v) was not minimized
else
... edge (u,v) was minimized
end for
return (true, p, d)
The time complexity is :math:`O(V E)`.
Examples
--------
We must define what should be done during the search by subclassing
:class:`~graph_tool.search.BellmanFordVisitor`, and specializing the
appropriate methods. In the following we will keep track of the edge
minimizations.
.. testcode::
class VisitorExample(gt.BellmanFordVisitor):
def __init__(self, name):
self.name = name
def edge_minimized(self, e):
print("edge (%s, %s) has been minimized..." % \
(self.name[e.source()], self.name[e.target()]))
def edge_not_minimized(self, e):
print("edge (%s, %s) has not been minimized..." % \
(self.name[e.source()], self.name[e.target()]))
With the above class defined, we can perform the Bellman-Ford search as
follows.
>>> g = gt.load_graph("search_example.xml")
>>> name = g.vp["name"]
>>> weight = g.ep["weight"]
>>> nweight = g.copy_property(weight)
>>> nweight.a[6] *= -1 # include negative weight in edge (Carlos, Alice)

Notes
-----
The :math:`A^*` algorithm is a heuristic graph search algorithm: an
:math:`A^*` search is "guided" by a heuristic function. A heuristic function
:math:`h(v)` is one which estimates the cost from a non-goal state (v) in
the graph to some goal state, t. Intuitively, :math:`A^*` follows paths
(through the graph) to the goal that are estimated by the heuristic function
to be the best paths. Unlike best-first search, :math:`A^*` takes into
account the known cost from the start of the search to v; the paths
:math:`A^*` takes are guided by a function :math:`f(v) = g(v) + h(v)`, where
:math:`h(v)` is the heuristic function, and :math:`g(v)` (sometimes denoted
:math:`c(s, v)`) is the known cost from the start to v. Clearly, the
efficiency of :math:`A^*` is highly dependent on the heuristic function with
which it is used.
The time complexity is :math:`O((E + V)\log V)`.
The pseudo-code for the :math:`A^*` algorithm is listed below, with the
annotated event points, for which the given visitor object will be called
with the appropriate method.

Examples
--------
We will use an irregular two-dimensional lattice as an example, where the
heuristic function will be based on the euclidean distance to the target.
The heuristic function will be defined as:
.. testcode::
def h(v, target, pos):
return sqrt(sum((pos[v].a - pos[target].a) ** 2))
where ``pos`` is the vertex position in the plane.
We must define what should be done during the search by subclassing
:class:`~graph_tool.search.AStarVisitor`, and specializing the appropriate
methods. In the following we will keep track of the discovered vertices, and
which edges were examined, as well as the predecessor tree. We will also
abort the search when a given target vertex is found, by raising the
:class:`~graph_tool.search.StopSearch` exception.
.. testcode::
class VisitorExample(gt.AStarVisitor):
def __init__(self, touched_v, touched_e, target):
self.touched_v = touched_v
self.touched_e = touched_e
self.target = target
def discover_vertex(self, u):
self.touched_v[u] = True
def examine_edge(self, e):
self.touched_e[e] = True
def edge_relaxed(self, e):
if e.target() == self.target:
raise gt.StopSearch()
With the above class defined, we can perform the :math:`A^*` search as
follows.

The shortest path is shown in red. The visited edges are shown in blue,
and the visited vertices in black.
The :math:`A^*` algorithm is very useful for searching *implicit* graphs,
i.e. graphs which are not entirely stored in memory and are generated
"on-the-fly" during the search. In the following example we will carry out a
search in a hamming hypercube of 10 bits witch has random weights on its
edges in the range :math:`[0,1]`. The vertices of the hypercube will be
created during the search.
The heuristic function will use the Hamming distance between vertices:
.. testcode::
def h(v, target, state):
return sum(abs(state[v].a - target)) / 2
In the following visitor we will keep growing the graph on-the-fly, and
abort the search when a given target vertex is found, by raising the
:class:`~graph_tool.search.StopSearch` exception.
.. testcode::
from numpy.random import random
class HammingVisitor(gt.AStarVisitor):
def __init__(self, g, target, state, weight, dist, cost):
self.g = g
self.state = state
self.target = target
self.weight = weight
self.dist = dist
self.cost = cost
self.visited = {}
def examine_vertex(self, u):
for i in range(len(self.state[u])):
nstate = list(self.state[u])
nstate[i] ^= 1
if tuple(nstate) in self.visited:
v = self.visited[tuple(nstate)]
else:
v = self.g.add_vertex()
self.visited[tuple(nstate)] = v
self.state[v] = nstate
self.dist[v] = self.cost[v] = float('inf')
for e in u.out_edges():
if e.target() == v:
break
else:
e = self.g.add_edge(u, v)
self.weight[e] = random()
self.visited[tuple(self.state[u])] = u
def edge_relaxed(self, e):
if self.state[e.target()] == self.target:
self.visited[tuple(self.target)] = e.target()
raise gt.StopSearch()
With the above class defined, we can perform the :math:`A^*` search as
follows.
.. testsetup::
from numpy.random import seed, random
seed(42)
gt.seed_rng(42)
>>> g = gt.Graph(directed=False)
>>> state = g.new_vertex_property("vector<bool>")
>>> v = g.add_vertex()
>>> state[v] = [0] * 10
>>> target = [1] * 10
>>> weight = g.new_edge_property("double")
>>> dist = g.new_vertex_property("double")
>>> cost = g.new_vertex_property("double")
>>> visitor = HammingVisitor(g, target, state, weight, dist, cost)
>>> dist, pred = gt.astar_search(g, g.vertex(0), weight, visitor, dist_map=dist,
... cost_map=cost, heuristic=lambda v: h(v, array(target), state),
... implicit=True)
We can now observe the best path found, and how many vertices and edges were
visited in the process.
>>> ecolor = g.new_edge_property("string")

The shortest path is shown in red, and the vertices which belong to it
are in black. Note that the number of vertices visited is much smaller
than the total number :math:`2^{10} = 1024`.

def astar_iterator(g, source, weight, heuristic=lambda v: 1, dist_map=None,
combine=None, compare=None, zero=0, infinity=numpy.inf,
array=False):
r"""Return an iterator of the edges corresponding to an :math:`A^*` traversal of
the graph.
Parameters
----------
g : :class:`~graph_tool.Graph`
Graph to be used.
source : :class:`~graph_tool.Vertex`
Source vertex.
weight : :class:`~graph_tool.EdgePropertyMap`
Edge property map with weight values.
heuristic : unary function (optional, default: ``lambda v: 1``)
The heuristic function that guides the search. It should take a single
argument which is a :class:`~graph_tool.Vertex`, and output an estimated
distance from the supplied vertex to the target vertex.
dist_map : :class:`~graph_tool.VertexPropertyMap` (optional, default: ``None``)
A vertex property map where the distances from the source will be
stored.
combine : binary function (optional, default: ``lambda a, b: a + b``)
This function is used to combine distances to compute the distance of a
path.
compare : binary function (optional, default: ``lambda a, b: a < b``)
This function is use to compare distances to determine which vertex is
closer to the source vertex.
zero : int or float (optional, default: ``0``)
Value assumed to correspond to a distance of zero by the combine and
compare functions.
infinity : int or float (optional, default: ``numpy.inf``)
Value assumed to correspond to a distance of infinity by the combine
and compare functions.
array : ``bool`` (optional, default: ``False``)
If ``True``, a :class:`numpy.ndarray` with the edge endpoints be
returned instead.
Returns
-------
astar_iterator : Iterator or :class:`numpy.ndarray`
An iterator over the edges in :math:`A^*` order. If ``array == True``,
this will be a :class:`numpy.ndarray` instead, of shape ``(E,2)``,
containing the edge endpoints.
See Also
--------
bfs_iterator: Breadth-first search
dfs_iterator: Depth-first search
dijkstra_iterator: Dijkstra search algorithm
Notes
-----
See :func:`~graph_tool.search.astar_search` for an explanation of the
algorithm.
The time complexity is :math:`O(1)` to create the generator and
:math:`O((E + V)\log V)` to traverse it completely.
Examples
--------
>>> g = gt.load_graph("search_example.xml")
>>> name = g.vp["name"]
>>> weight = g.ep["weight"]
>>> for e in gt.astar_iterator(g, g.vertex(0), weight):
... print(name[e.source()], "->", name[e.target()])

Bob -> Chuck
Bob -> Carlos
Bob -> Isaac
Eve -> Imothep
Eve -> Carol
Carlos -> Alice
