this library provides support to construct graphs and their coloring graphs. a coloring graph is a metagraph representing all the valid colorings of a graph. each vertex of a coloring graph represents a coloring of the base graph.

Project description

coloring-graphs

pipeline status

a coloring graphs library written in C++ for speedy computation and wrapped in Python for ease of development and extension!

what

this library provides support to construct graphs and their coloring graphs. a coloring graph is a metagraph representing all the valid colorings of a graph. each vertex of a coloring graph represents a coloring of the base graph.

in this project, we represent a coloring as an integer, which, when converted to base k (for a k-coloring), represents the vertex-wise colors [0,k).

the library is under development being written using Python and C/C++. for documentation, feel free to take a look inside libcolgraph/ and read the docstrings. for examples, see the files in test/. for questions, reach out.

how

  1. installation:

    • manual installation

      refer to detailed install instructions

    • pypi

      python3 -m pip install libcolgraph [--user]
      

      things to note:

      • currently a binary wheel is available only for manylinux distributions e.g. centOS, Debian family, RedHat family, etc.
      • if your distribution is not manylinux-supported, then pip will need to compile locally using swig and setuptools. in that case, make sure you have setuptools and swig installed, as they will be needed for compilation.
      • in the future we will release wheels for MacOS as well. these might not be as frequently maintained, however, so your best bet would be to compile locally using swig.
  2. quickstart:

    • usage:
    import libcolgraph
    g = libcolgraph.Graph()
    g.load_txt('./test/input/g1.in')
    
    g.add_vertex(314)
    
    print(g.size())
    
    • run a test suite! make test

    • try the sandbox file (test/sandbox.py) to see how plotting works (currently pure python-only)

      • python3 test/sandbox.py 3
      • python3 test/sandbox.py 3 test/input/g1.in
