Graphs and Trees
Task Background: Graphs and trees provide you with ways to visualize data sets, and the opportunity to do analysis on the data (e.g., shortest path). Knowing the structure of a database enables you to choose a proper algorithm for searching for data within a database.
Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write up to 3 paragraphs that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
Trees are somewhat less complicated than graphs, which makes things like data searching easier, when a data has the structure of a tree. However, not all data can be represented by a tree. Describe an example of a data set that cannot be represented by a tree, but that be represented by a more general graph. Explain why it cannot be represented by a tree.
Responses to Other Students: Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with a reply of at least 1 paragraph about their primary task response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions:
