libboost-graph1.42.0 package information
generic graph components and algorithms in C++
This package forms part of the Boost C++ Libraries collection. Graphs are mathematical abstractions that are useful for solving many types of problems in computer science. Consequently, these abstractions must also be represented in computer programs. A standardized generic interface for traversing graphs is of utmost importance to encourage reuse of graph algorithms and data structures.
