pgr_chinesePostman
 Experimental¶
pgr_chinesePostman
— Calculates the shortest circuit path which contains
every edge in a directed graph and starts and ends on the same vertex.
Warning
Possible server crash
These functions might create a server crash
Warning
Experimental functions
They are not officially of the current release.
They likely will not be officially be part of the next release:
The functions might not make use of ANYINTEGER and ANYNUMERICAL
Name might change.
Signature might change.
Functionality might change.
pgTap tests might be missing.
Might need c/c++ coding.
May lack documentation.
Documentation if any might need to be rewritten.
Documentation examples might need to be automatically generated.
Might need a lot of feedback from the comunity.
Might depend on a proposed function of pgRouting
Might depend on a deprecated function of pgRouting
Availability
Version 3.0.0
New experimental signature
Description¶
The main characteristics are:
Process is done only on edges with positive costs.
Running time: \(O(E * (E + V * logV))\)
Graph must be connected.
Returns
EMPTY SET
on a disconnected graph
Signatures¶
(seq, node, edge, cost, agg_cost)
 Example:
SELECT * FROM pgr_chinesePostman(
'SELECT id, source, target, cost, reverse_cost
FROM edges WHERE id < 17');
