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

Version 3.4.0
New experimental function
Description¶
In numerical linear algebra, the CuthillMcKee algorithm (CM), named after Elizabeth Cuthill and James McKee, is an algorithm to permute a sparse matrix that has a symmetric sparsity pattern into a band matrix form with a small bandwidth.
The vertices are basically assigned a breadthfirst search order, except that at each step, the adjacent vertices are placed in the queue in order of increasing degree.
The main Characteristics are:
The implementation is for undirected graphs.
The bandwidth minimization problems are considered NPcomplete problems.
The running time complexity is: \(O(m log(m)V)\)
where \(V\) is the number of vertices,
\(m\) is the maximum degree of the vertices in the graph.
