Graph Cycle

Explore GraphCycle on MathWorld

A graph cycle is any of a network's edge-set subsets that forms a path in which the first node is also the last.

Graph cycle is a college-level concept that would be first encountered in a discrete mathematics course covering graph theory.


Graph: In graph theory, a graph, also called a network, is a collection of points together with lines that connect some subset of the points.
