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.

An algorithm hpergraphs tree-query membership of a distributed query. In one possible visual representation for hypergraphs, similar to the standard graph drawing style in which curves in the plane are used to depict graph edges, a hypergraph’s vertices are depicted as points, disks, or boxes, and its hyperedges are depicted as trees that have the vertices as their leaves.

[] Linearity of Saturation for Berge Hypergraphs

Special kinds of hypergraphs include: Although hypergraphs are more difficult to draw on paper than graphs, several researchers have studied methods for the visualization of hypergraphs. Conversely, every collection of trees can be understood as this generalized hypergraph.

Retrieved from ” https: Hypergraphs have been extensively used in machine learning tasks as the data model and classifier regularization mathematics. However, none of the reverse implications hold, so those four notions are different.

Some methods for studying symmetries of graphs extend to hypergraphs. In particular, there is no transitive closure of set membership for such hypergraphs. This bipartite graph is also called incidence graph.


Mathematics > Combinatorics

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. Simple linear-time algorithms to test hypergrphs of graphs, test acyclicity of hypergraphs, and selectively reduce acyclic hypergraphs.

The partial hypergraph is a hypergraph with some edges removed. One possible generalization of a hypergraph is to allow edges to point at other edges.

Those four notions of acyclicity are comparable: Hypergraph theory tends to concern questions similar to those of graph theory, such as connectivity and colorabilitywhile the theory of set systems tends to ask non-graph-theoretical questions, such as those of Sperner theory.

For a disconnected hypergraph HG is a host graph if there is a bijection between the connected components of G and of Hsuch that each connected component G’ of G is a host of the corresponding H’.

Minimum number of used distinct colors over all colorings is called the chromatic number of a hypergraph. Hypergraphs have many other names.

[] Forbidden Berge Hypergraphs

A first definition of acyclicity for hypergraphs was given by Claude Berge: The difference between a set system and a hypergraph is in the questions being asked. This definition is very restrictive: Views Read Edit View hhpergraphs. Some mixed hypergraphs are uncolorable for any number of colors.

A subhypergraph is a hypergraph with some vertices removed. In essence, every edge is just an internal node of a tree or directed acyclic graphand vertices are the leaf nodes.


If all edges have the same cardinality kthe hypergraph is said to be uniform or k -uniformor is called a k -hypergraph. Dauber, in Graph hypergrahpsed. In particular, there is a bipartite “incidence hyypergraphs or ” Levi graph ” corresponding to every hypergraph, and conversely, most, but not all, bipartite graphs can be regarded as incidence graphs of hypergraphs.

The degree d v of a vertex v is the number of edges that contain it.

March”Multilevel hypergraph partitioning: The 2-section or clique graphrepresenting graphprimal graphGaifman graph of a hypergraph is the graph with the same vertices of the hypergraph, and edges between all pairs of vertices contained in the hypergrahs hyperedge.

A general criterion for uncolorability is unknown. When a mixed hypergraph is colorable, then the minimum and maximum number of hypergraphd colors are called the lower and upper chromatic numbers respectively.

The collection of hypergraphs is a category with hypergraph homomorphisms as morphisms. A hypergraph is then just a collection of trees with common, shared nodes that is, a given internal node or leaf may occur in several different trees.

The generalized incidence matrix for such hypergraphs is, by definition, a square matrix, of a rank equal to hypergraphw total number of vertices plus edges.
