Graph
A graph is a pair (V, E), where
V is a set of nodes, called vertices E is a collection of pairs of vertices, called edges Vertices and edges are positions and store elements

Edge Types
Directed edge
ordered pair of vertices (u,v) first vertex u is the origin second vertex v is the destination e.g., a flight

ORD

flight AA 1206 849 miles

PVD

Example:
A vertex represents an airport and stores the three-letter airport code An edge represents a flight route between two airports and stores the mileage of the route

Undirected edge
unordered pair of vertices (u,v) e.g., a flight route
