In the mathematical field of graph theory, the distance between two vertices in a graph is the number of edges in a shortest path (also called a graph geodesic) connecting them. This is also known as the geodesic distance. Notice that there may be more than one shortest path between two vertices. If there is no path connecting the two vertices, i.e., if they belong to different connected components, then conventionally the distance is defined as infinite. In the case of a directed graph the distance between two vertices and is defined as the length of a shortest path from to

A graph G is a triple consisting of a vertex set V (G), an edge set E(G), and a relation that associates with each edge, two vertices called its endpoints (not necessarily distinct). Graphically, we represent a graph by drawing a point for each vertex and representing each edge by a curve joining its endpoints.by A Dickson · 2006 · Cited by 6 · Related articles
