GTL (Graph Template Library)

The Standard Template Library (STL) is an extremely flexible implementation of many container classes and standard algorithms. Unfortunately, STL has no support for graphs and graph algorithms. However, graphs are widely used for complex relational structures.

Since we are intensively working with graph algorithms especially in Graphlet, we decided to implement GTL, a graph library based on STL. For the design of GTL's API the API of LEDA has served as a basis. GTL contains the classes needed to work with graphs, nodes and edges and some basic algorithms as building blocks for more complex graph algorithms. Further algorithms are under work.
