In science:

Our result uses a well-known relationship between the Euler tours and arborescences of an Eulerian graph.
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
An arborescence of a directed graph G = (V , E ) is a rooted spanning tree of G in which all arcs are directed towards the root.
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
We will use ARBS (G) to denote the set of arborescences of G and, for any v ∈ V , use ARBS (G, v) to denote the set of arborescences rooted at v .
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
For any given digraph G = (V , E ), the well-known Matrix-tree theorem shows that for any v ∈ V the number of arborescences into v ∈ V exactly equals the value of the (v , v)-cofactor of the Laplacian matrix of G (see, for example, ).
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
Colbourn et al. gave an algorithm allowing sampling of a random arborescence rooted at v to be carried out in the same time as counting all such arborescences.
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
We first prove a useful combinatorial lemma; then in Theorem 2 we derive and prove exact expressions for the first and second moments for the number of arborescences of σ(F ), when F is a configuration drawn uniformly at random from Φd n .
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
Next, in Theorem 3, we condition on the event that σ(F ) is a simple graph, to derive close approximations for the first and second moment, for the number of Arborescences, when G is a simple graph drawn uniformly at random from G d n .
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
We use Fact 1 and Fact 2 to prove the following lemma. and in the proofs of subsequent results, we will speak of a configuration for an (in-directed) arborescence or forest.
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
A ⊂ F is an arborescence of F ∈ Φd n if σ (A) is an arborescence of σ(F ).
The number of Euler tours of a random directed graph
For a better understanding, let us mention that the arborescences are not necessarily spanning and each vertex of D belongs to exactly rM (S) arborescences.
Basic Packing of Arborescences
There exists an M-basic packing of arborescences in (D , S, π) if and only if π is M-independent and (D , S, π) is M-connected.
Basic Packing of Arborescences
If M is the free matroid and π places every element of S at a single vertex r of D then the problem of M-basic packing of arborescences and that of packing of spanning arborescences rooted at r coincide.
Basic Packing of Arborescences
Then {T ′ t } is an M-basic packing of arborescences in (D , S, π).
Basic Packing of Arborescences
Then, by Theorem 1.6, there exists an M-basic packing of arborescences in (D , S, π) which provides, by forgetting the orientation, an M-basic packing of rooted-trees in (G, S, π).
Basic Packing of Arborescences
For each root si ∈ B2 , there exists an arc of Ti that enters X and the arborescences are arc-disjoint, so we have ρD (X ) ≥ |B2 | = |B| − |B1 | ≥ rM (S) − rM (SX ) that is (D , S, π) is M-connected.
