Graph::Maker::Kneser - create Kneser graphs


 use Graph::Maker::Kneser;
 $graph = Graph::Maker->new ('Kneser', N => 8, K => 3);


Graph::Maker::Kneser creates Graph.pm graphs of Kneser graphs. Each vertex is a K-many subset of the integers 1 to N. Edges are between vertices with all integers distinct. Vertex names are the list of integers separated by commas, such as "1,5,6,8".

K=1 is the complete-N graph. Vertex names are the same as Graph::Maker::Complete (integers 1 to N).

N=5,K=2 is the Petersen graph.

N=2*K-1 is the "odd" graph K.

K > N/2 has no edges since the K-many subsets are each more than half of 1..N so are never disjoint


$graph = Graph::Maker->new('Kneser', key => value, ...)

The key/value parameters are

    N   =>  integer
    K   =>  integer
    graph_maker => subr(key=>value) constructor, default Graph->new

Other parameters are passed to the constructor, either graph_maker or Graph->new().

If the graph is directed (the default) then edges are added both forward and backward between vertices. Option undirected => 1 creates an undirected graph and for it there is a single edge between vertices.
