  • Interesting fact: Coral (pro osteon) has molecular architecture and chemistry similar to human bone and so it can be used to replace bone grafts, helping bones heal faster. 150-200 pounds of it can sustain hundreds of graphs
    • Graph A curve or surface, the locus of a point whose coördinates are the variables in the equation of the locus; as, a graph of the exponential function.
    • Graph A diagram symbolizing a system of interrelations of variable quantities using points represented by spots, or by lines to represent the relations of continuous variables. More than one set of interrelations may be presented on one graph, in which case the spots or lines are typically distinguishable from each other, as by color, shape, thickness, continuity, etc. A diagram in which relationships between variables are represented by other visual means is sometimes called a graph, as in a bar graph, but may also be called a chart.

    • n graph A diagrammatic representation of a system of connections by means of a number of spots, which may be all distinguished from one another, some pairs of these spots being connected by lines all of which are of one kind. In this way any system of relationship may be represented. Graphs are commonly used in chemistry, and have been applied in algebra and in logic.
    • n graph A terminal element in compounds of Greek origin, denoting that which writes, marks, or describes something, as in chronograph, telegraph, seismograph, etc., or, passively, that which is written, as in autograph, electrograph, etc. In the passive use the stricter form is -grammar
    • n graph A curve as representing an equation or function.
    • n graph A line drawn through a series of points whose position has been already determined.
    • n graph A representation by points on or in a lattice.

In science:

If we define the diameter d of a graph to be the maximum distance between any two connected vertices in the graph, then it can be proven rigorously that the fraction of all possible graphs with n vertices and m edges for which d > c log n for some constant c tends to zero as n becomes large (Bollob´as, 1985).
Random graphs as models of networks
Random graph theory plays a large role in this analysis since movie ratings do not correspond to a particular graph, but rather a family of graphs.

If G is a partial function graph then each connected component of G is a cycle. A permutation graph G of a cyclus will be called a cyclus graph.

N −1 → x0 . G is a partial cyclus graph if it can be extended to a cyclus graph. A partial cyclus graph is proper if it is not a cyclus graph.

Small World (SW) graphs efficiently interpolate between regular and random graphs thanks to a small number pN of shortcuts (long-range connections) which are superimposed on a regular graph formed by N nodes.

In Theorem 5.2 we show that any connected covering graph of a given connected graph can be written as a relative skew product graph of the base graph, a generalisation of the results in [GT, GT1].

The number of edges is between 0 (for the empty graph) and N (N − 1)/2 (for the complete graph). A component of a graph is a subset of connected vertices which are disconnect from the rest of the graph.

On the other hand, the universality of a graph Γ in the sense of means that 1) any finite graph is isomorphic to a subgraph of Γ; 2) for every n, the group of automorphisms of the graph Γ acts transitively on the set of all subgraphs of Γ of order n isomorphic to an arbitrary given graph.

Graphs having 4N edges are actually considered as dense in the Graph Drawing community. 3Recall that a directed graph G is simply connected if its underlying non directed graph is connected.

We show that the resulting ensembles of random graphs strongly resemble those de fined in random graphs with hidden color (CDRG), generalizing the known relation of the Feynman graphs of simple onedimensional integrals to random graphs with a given degree distribution.
Random Feynman Graphs
In the spirit of refs. [13, 14], we will consider the possibility of defining ensembles of random graphs – random Feynman graphs – based on the Feynman graphs for such a system, with the statistical weight of each distinct graph taken to be proportional to the corresponding term in the perturbative expansion of Z .
Random Feynman Graphs
Now we want to interpret these Feynman graphs as random graphs in a multivariate version of RFG, with a statistical weight for each distinct graph proportional to the corresponding graph value as given by the Feynman rules.
Random Feynman Graphs
As we have already indicated in the Introduction, pseudo-random graphs are modeled after truly random graphs, and therefore mastering the edge distribution in random graphs can provide the most useful insight on what can be expected from pseudo-random graphs.
Pseudo-random graphs
Such graphs have been called regular quantum graphs by Severini and Tanner (2004); the name derives from the notation regular graphs for graphs which have the same number of incoming and outgoing arcs at every vertex and thus share the property that vertices are locally indistinguishable.
