## Path Matrix by powers of Adjacency Matrix

Write a C Program to find Path Matrix by powers of Adjacency Matrix. Here’s simple Program to find Path Matrix by powers of Adjacency Matrix in C Programming Language.

## Adjacency Matrix:

Adjacency Matrix is a 2D array of size V x V where V is the number of vertices in a graph. Let the 2D array be adj[][], a slot adj[i][j] = 1 indicates that there is an edge from vertex i to vertex j.

Adjacency matrix for undirected graph is always symmetric. Adjacency Matrix is also used to represent weighted graphs. If adj[i][j] = w, then there is an edge from vertex i to vertex j with weight w.

Pros: Representation is easier to implement and follow. Removing an edge takes O(1) time. Queries like whether there is an edge from vertex ‘u’ to vertex ‘v’ are efficient and can be done O(1).

Cons: Consumes more space O(V^2). Even if the graph is sparse(contains less number of edges), it consumes the same space. Adding a vertex is O(V^2) time.

Below is the source code for C Program to Insert Delete Edges in a Directed graph using Adjacency Matrix which is successfully compiled and run on Windows System to produce desired output as shown below :

### SOURCE CODE : :

```/*  C Program to find Path Matrix by powers of Adjacency matrix  */

#include<stdio.h>
#define MAX 100

void display(int matrix[MAX][MAX]);
void pow_matrix(int p,int adjp[MAX][MAX] );
void multiply(int mat1[MAX][MAX],int mat2[MAX][MAX],int mat3[MAX][MAX]);

void create_graph( );
int adj[MAX][MAX];
int n;

int main()
{

int adjp[MAX][MAX];
int x[MAX][MAX],path[MAX][MAX],i,j,p;

create_graph();

printf("\nThe adjacency matrix is :\n");
display(adj);

/*Initialize all elements of matrix x to zero*/
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
for(j=0; j<n; j++)

/*All the powers of adj will be added to matrix x */
for(p=1; p<=n; p++)

for(j=0; j<n; j++)
if (x[i][j] == 0 )
path[i][j] = 0;
else
path[i][j] = 1;

printf("\nThe path matrix is :\n");
display(path);
}/*End of main() */

void create_graph()
{
int i,max_edges,origin,destin;

printf("\nEnter number of vertices : ");
scanf("%d",&n);

max_edges = n*(n-1);

for( i=1; i<=max_edges; i++ )
{
printf("\nEnter edge %d( -1 -1 ) to quit : ",i);
scanf("%d %d",&origin,&destin);
if( (origin == -1) && (destin == -1) )
break;
if( origin >= n || destin >= n || origin<0 || destin<0)
{
printf("\nInvalid edge!\n");
i--;
}
else
adj[origin][destin] = 1;
}/*End of for*/
}/*End of create_graph()*/

/*This function computes the pth power of matrix adj and stores result in adjp */
void pow_matrix(int p,int adjp[MAX][MAX])
{

int i,j,k,tmp[MAX][MAX];

/*Initially adjp is equal to adj*/
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
for(j=0; j<n; j++)

for(k=1; k<p; k++)
{

multiply(adjp,adj,tmp);
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
for(j=0; j<n; j++)
adjp[i][j] = tmp[i][j]; /* New adjp is equal to tmp */
}
}/*End of pow_matrix()*/

/*This function multiplies mat1 and mat2 and stores the result in mat3 */
void multiply(int mat1[MAX][MAX],int mat2[MAX][MAX],int mat3[MAX][MAX])
{
int i,j,k;

for(i=0; i<n; i++)
for(j=0; j<n; j++)
{
mat3[i][j] = 0;
for(k=0; k<n; k++)
mat3[i][j] = mat3[i][j]+ mat1[i][k] * mat2[k][j];
}
}/*End of multiply()*/

void display(int matrix[MAX][MAX])
{
int i,j;
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
{
for(j=0; j<n; j++)
printf("%4d",matrix[i][j]);
printf("\n");
}
printf("\n");
}/*End of display()*/```
