In other words, a bidirected graph is a directed graph whose adjacency matrix is symmetric, and in this context an undirected graph is just a directed graph whose weighted adjacency matrix is symmetric. In recent years, graph theory has established itself as an important mathematical tool in a wide variety of subjects, ranging from operational research and chemistry to genetics and linguistics, and from electrical engineering and geography to sociology and architecture.

Graph theory is also widely used in sociology as a way, for example, to measure actors prestige or to explore rumor spreading, notably through the use of social network analysis software. Say that i have a directed graph reflected by the following edgelist. Instead, it refers to a set of vertices that is, points or nodes and of edges or lines that connect the vertices. It is the number of edges connected coming in or leaving out, for the graphs in given images we cannot differentiate which edge is coming in and which one is going out to a vertex.
