### Minimum edge-weighted directed subgraph in polynomial time

I am looking for an algorithm with polynomial complexity where, given a strongly connected edge-weighted digraph I can find the minimal subgraph which connects some root vertex v to a known set of ...

### Digraph without "immediately isomorphic" vertices?

Say that a digraph $(V,E)$ is reducible if there exist $x,y\in V$ with $x\ne y$ and such that for all $z\in V$, $(x,z)\in E\leftrightarrow(y,z)\in E$ and $(z,x)\in E\leftrightarrow(z,y)\in E$. It is ...

### Given a simple undirected graph, how to direct its edges to make it transitive

I am currently looking for an algorithm to determine whether we can direct every edge (no adding or deleting edges allowed) so that the graph is transitive (meaning that if (x,y) and (y,z) are edges ...

### Is there a formula for the number of st-dags (DAG with 1 source and 1 sink) with n vertices?

I am looking at doing some basic validation on a database of st-dags. It would be useful to have: A formula for the number of non-isomorphic st-dags with n vertices A formula for the same with n ...

### Are there any necessary conditions of the existence of a Hamiltonian cycle on directed graphs

I'm trying to prove that one concrete directed graph has no Hamiltonian cycle, but didn't seem to find any relevant theorems

### Directed version of this lemma

On a paper by Shoham Letzter, available Here, there's a lemma that says as follows: Lemma 0: For every graph $G$, there exist two disjoint sets $U,W\subseteq V(G)$ of equal size, such that there are ...

### Directed graph minor theorems

In proving the graph minor theorem, Robertson and Seymour proved a stronger statement, namely that the directed graph minor theorem is true, using the definition A directed graph is a minor of ...

### Has it already been shown that a digraph is $k$-connected if and only if there is a set of $k$ disjoint paths between every pair of vertices? [closed]

My question concerns graph theory. There is a conjecture I know to be true, but I am not sure whether it has been proven before. It is a fairly simple result. It may be well-known; I am not sure. ...

### Expected number of directed cycle in a directed complete graph

Consider the randomized, directed complete graph G = (V, E) where for each pair of vertices u, v ∈ V, we add either the directed edge (u → v) or the directed edge (v → u) chosen uniformly at random. ...

### Distance pairs in labeled directed graph

Suppose we have a simple directed graph with $n$ nodes and $m$ edges, and we label each edge from $1$ to $m$ (with distinct labels). Define the weighted "length" of a directed path to be the maximum ...

### Finding the max-value set of cycles in a weighted digraph

I am looking for the most efficient algorithm that can solve this problem: Given a directed graph with real-valued edge weights, find a set of directed cycles (no two cycles can share a vertex) that ...

### When does a graph have a minimally strong orientation?

Given an asymmetric relation $A\subseteq V^2$ a digraph $D=(V,A)$ is minimally strong iff $D$ is strongly connected and for all arcs $\alpha\in A$ the digraph $D−\alpha=(V,A\setminus\{\alpha\})$ is ...

### Digraphs with same number of semiwalks

This is a follow-up question to Characterisation of walk-equivalent digraphs. Question: Do there exists two directed graphs $G$ and $H$ consisting of the same number ($n$) of vertices, such that \...

### Non-equivalent eulerian trails in $K_{2n+1}$
Two eulerian trails of $K_{2n+1}$ are defined to be equivalent if the orientations obtained by orienting the edges as traversed by the trails are isomorphic as digraph. How many non-equivalent trails ...
Is there an algorightm generating all digraphs with $n$ edges up to isomorphism whose underlying graph is not a tree? For example, for $n=3$, there are only two such digraphs, representable as \$\text{...
