At the moment this module only implement one method, which calls Brendan McKay’s Nauty (http://cs.anu.edu.au/~bdm/nauty/) to enumerate hypergraphs up to isomorphism.
A class consisting of constructors for common hypergraphs.
Enumerates hypergraphs up to isomorphism using Nauty.
INPUT:
number_of_sets, number_of_vertices (integers)
multiple_sets (boolean) – whether to allow several sets of the hypergraph to be equal (set to False by default).
vertex_min_degree, vertex_max_degree (integers) – define the maximum and minimum degree of an element from the ground set (i.e. the number of sets which contain it). Set to None by default.
set_min_size, set_max_size (integers) – define the maximum and minimum size of a set. Set to None by default.
regular (integer) – if set to an integer value \(k\), requires the hypergraphs to be \(k\)-regular. It is actually a shortcut for the corresponing min/max values.
uniform (integer) – if set to an integer value \(k\), requires the hypergraphs to be \(k\)-uniform. It is actually a shortcut for the corresponing min/max values.
max_intersection (integer) – constraints the maximum cardinality of the intersection of two sets fro the hypergraphs. Set to None by default.
connected (boolean) – whether to require the hypergraphs to be connected. Set to False by default.
debug (boolean) – if True the first line of genbg’s output to standard error is captured and the first call to the generator’s next() function will return this line as a string. A line leading with “>A” indicates a successful initiation of the program with some information on the arguments, while a line beginning with “>E” indicates an error with the input.
options (string) – anything else that should be forwarded as input to Nauty’s genbg. See its documentation for more information : http://cs.anu.edu.au/~bdm/nauty/.
Note
For genbg the first class elements are vertices, and second class elements are the hypergraph’s sets.
OUTPUT:
A tuple of tuples.
EXAMPLES:
Small hypergraphs:
sage: list(hypergraphs.nauty(4,2)) # optional - nauty
[((), (0,), (1,), (0, 1))]
Only connected ones:
sage: list(hypergraphs.nauty(2,2, connected = True)) # optional - nauty
[((0,), (0, 1))]
Non-empty sets only:
sage: list(hypergraphs.nauty(3,2, set_min_size = 1)) # optional - nauty
[((0,), (1,), (0, 1))]
The Fano Plane, as the only 3-uniform hypergraph with 7 sets and 7 vertices:
sage: fano = hypergraphs.nauty(7,7, uniform = 3, max_intersection =1).next() # optional - nauty
sage: print fano # optional - nauty
((0, 1, 2), (0, 3, 4), (0, 5, 6), (1, 3, 5), (2, 4, 5), (2, 3, 6), (1, 4, 6))
The Fano Plane, as the only 3-regular hypergraph with 7 sets and 7 vertices:
sage: fano = hypergraphs.nauty(7,7, regular = 3, max_intersection =1).next() # optional - nauty
sage: print fano # optional - nauty
((0, 1, 2), (0, 3, 4), (0, 5, 6), (1, 3, 5), (2, 4, 5), (2, 3, 6), (1, 4, 6))
