We say a hypergraph is Berge- -saturated if it does not contain a Berge-, but adding any hyperedge creates a copy of Berge-. The -uniform. For a (0,1)-matrix, we say that a (0,1)-matrix has as a \emph{Berge hypergraph} if there is a submatrix of and some row and column.

Conversely, every collection of trees can be understood as this generalized hypergraph. One possible generalization of a hypergraph is to allow edges to point at other edges. In mathematicsa hypergraph is a generalization of a graph in which an edge can join any number of vertices. For such a hypergraph, set membership then provides an ordering, but the ordering is neither a partial order nor a preordersince it is not transitive.

The degree d v of a vertex hypedgraphs is the number of edges that contain it. As this loop is infinitely recursive, sets that are the edges violate the axiom of foundation. This allows graphs with edge-loops, which need not contain vertices at all. However, the transitive closure of set membership for such hypergraphs does induce a partial orderand “flattens” the hypergraph into a partially ordered set.

This definition is very restrictive: In some literature edges are referred to as hyperlinks or connectors. In other words, there must be no monochromatic hyperedge with cardinality at least 2. This bipartite graph is also called incidence graph. The graph corresponding to the Levi graph of this generalization is a directed acyclic graph. In particular, there is a bipartite “incidence graph” or ” Levi graph ” corresponding to every hypergraph, and conversely, most, but not all, bipartite graphs can be bere as incidence graphs of hypergraphs.


Although such structures may seem strange at first, they can be readily understood by noting that the equivalent generalization of their Levi graph is no longer bipartitebut is rather just some general directed graph. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.


Some methods for studying symmetries of graphs extend to hypergraphs. Berge-cyclicity hyperfraphs obviously be tested in linear time by bereg exploration of the incidence graph. The collection of hypergraphs is a category with hypergraph homomorphisms as morphisms. Ramsey’s theorem and Line graph of a hypergraph are typical examples. Because of yhpergraphs duality, the study of edge-transitivity is identical to the study of vertex-transitivity. The difference between a set system and a hypergraph is in the questions being asked.

Generalization of graph theory. Because hypergraph links can have any cardinality, there are several notions of the concept of a subgraph, called subhypergraphspartial hypergraphs and section hypergraphs. In another style of hypergraph visualization, the subdivision model of hypergraph drawing, [21] the plane is subdivided into regions, each of which represents a single vertex of the hypergraph.

Hyoergraphs transversal hypergraph of H is the hypergraph XF whose edge set F consists of all minimal transversals of H. One of them is the so-called mixed hypergraph coloring, when monochromatic edges are allowed. Minimum number of used distinct colors over all colorings is called the chromatic number of a hypergraph.

In contrast with the polynomial-time recognition of planar graphsit is NP-complete to determine hyperrgraphs a hypergraph has a planar subdivision drawing, [22] but the existence of a drawing of this type may be tested efficiently when the adjacency pattern of the regions is constrained to be a path, cycle, or tree. If a hypergraph is both edge- and vertex-symmetric, then the hypergraph is simply transitive. Views Read Edit View history.


Harary, Addison Wesley, p. When the vertices of a hypergraph are explicitly labeled, one has the notions of equivalenceand also of equality.

March”Multilevel hypergraph partitioning: A connected graph G with the same vertex set as a connected hypergraph H is a host graph for H if every hyperedge of H induces a connected subgraph in G. In one, the edges consist not only of a set of vertices, but may also contain subsets of vertices, subsets of subsets of vertices and so on ad infinitum.

Some mixed hypergraphs are uncolorable for any number of colors. Although hypergraphs are more difficult to draw on paper than graphs, several researchers have studied methods for the visualization of hypergraphs. A transversal T is called minimal if no proper subset of T is a transversal.

[] Forbidden Berge Hypergraphs

When the edges of a hypergraph are explicitly labeled, one has the additional notion of strong isomorphism. A hypergraph is then just a collection of bergs with common, shared nodes that is, a given internal node hypergrapjs leaf may occur in several different trees. When a notion of equality is properly defined, as done below, the operation of taking the dual of a hypergraph is an involutioni. An algorithm for tree-query membership of a distributed query.

The partial hypergraph is a hypergraph with some edges removed. Hypergraphs for which there exists a coloring using up to k colors are referred to as k-colorable.
