Node successors


sucIDs = successors(G,nodeID)



sucIDs = successors(G,nodeID) returns the successor nodes of the node in directed graph G specified by nodeID. The successor nodes form directed edges with nodeID as the source node, and sucIDs as the target nodes.


collapse all

Create and plot a directed graph and determine the successor nodes of node 'a'.

s = [1 1 1 2 2 3 3 7 8];
t = [2 3 4 5 6 7 8 5 5];
names = {'a' 'b' 'c' 'd' 'e' 'f' 'g' 'h'};
G = digraph(s,t,[],names);

sucIDs = successors(G,'a')
sucIDs = 3x1 cell array

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input graph, specified as a digraph object. Use digraph to create a directed graph object.

Example: G = digraph([1 2],[2 3])

Node identifier, specified as a numeric scalar node index or a character vector node name.

Example: sucIDs = successors(G,3) finds the successor nodes of node 3.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Successor node IDs, returned as a numeric scalar or column vector of node indices, or as a cell array of character vectors containing node names.

  • If nodeID is a numeric node index, then sucIDs contains numeric node indices.

  • If nodeID is a node name, then sucIDs contains node names.
