## Is Hamilton path NP hard?

Any Hamiltonian Path can be made into a Hamiltonian Circuit through a polynomial time reduction by simply adding one edge between the first and last point in the path. Therefore we have a reduction, which means that Hamiltonian Paths are in NP Hard, and therefore in NP Complete.

### What is the Hamilton sequence for the given graph?

Definitions. A Hamiltonian path or traceable path is a path that visits each vertex of the graph exactly once. A graph that contains a Hamiltonian path is called a traceable graph. A graph is Hamiltonian-connected if for every pair of vertices there is a Hamiltonian path between the two vertices.

**What is Dirac’s Theorem?**

The classical Dirac theorem asserts that every graph G on n vertices with minimum degree \delta(G) \ge \lceil n/2 \rceil is Hamiltonian. The lower bound of \lceil n/2 \rceil on the minimum degree of a graph is tight.

**What is the difference between the Hamilton paths and Hamilton circuit?**

Hamilton Paths and Hamilton Circuits A Hamilton Path is a path that goes through every Vertex of a graph exactly once. A Hamilton Circuit is a Hamilton Path that begins and ends at the same vertex.

## Is clique a problem with NP?

The clique decision problem is NP-complete (one of Karp’s 21 NP-complete problems). The problem of finding the maximum clique is both fixed-parameter intractable and hard to approximate.

### Is TSP NP-complete?

Traveling Salesman Optimization(TSP-OPT) is a NP-hard problem and Traveling Salesman Search(TSP) is NP-complete. However, TSP-OPT can be reduced to TSP since if TSP can be solved in polynomial time, then so can TSP-OPT(1).

**How do I know how many Hamilton circuits I have?**

Recall the way to find out how many Hamilton circuits this complete graph has. The complete graph above has four vertices, so the number of Hamilton circuits is: (N – 1)! = (4 – 1)!

**How do you know if a graph has a Hamilton path?**

A connected graph is said to have a Hamiltonian circuit if it has a circuit that ‘visits’ each node (or vertex) exactly once. A graph that has a Hamiltonian circuit is called a Hamiltonian graph. For instance, the graph below has 20 nodes. The edges consist of both the red lines and the dotted black lines.
