**graph**is an abstract data type that is meant to implement the undirected graph and directed graph concepts from mathematics, specifically the field of graph theory.A graph data structure consists of a finite (and possibly mutable) set of

*vertices*or*nodes*or*points*, together with a set of unordered pairs of these vertices for an undirected graph or a set of ordered pairs for a directed graph. These pairs are known as*edges*,*arcs*, or*lines*for an undirected graph and as*arrows*,*directed edges*,*directed arcs*, or*directed lines*for a directed graph. The vertices may be part of the graph structure, or may be external entities represented by integer indices or references.A graph data structure may also associate to each edge some

*edge value*, such as a symbolic label or a numeric attribute (cost, capacity, length, etc.).
