## What is graph tree traversal?

In computer science, tree traversal (also known as tree search and walking the tree) is a form of graph traversal and refers to the process of visiting (e.g. retrieving, updating, or deleting) each node in a tree data structure, exactly once. Such traversals are classified by the order in which the nodes are visited.

## How does tree traversal work?

An inorder traversal first visits the left child (including its entire subtree), then visits the node, and finally visits the right child (including its entire subtree). The binary search tree makes use of this traversal to print all nodes in ascending order of value.

## What is tree traversal in discrete mathematics?

Tree Traversals. A traversal of a graph is an algorithm or process for “visiting” all of the vertices in a tree in a specified order that is determined by the graph structure. Tree traversals are traversals that are defined in the special case that the graph is a rooted tree.

## Why do we need graph traversal?

The goal of a graph traversal, generally, is to find all nodes reachable from a given set of root nodes. In an undirected graph we follow all edges; in a directed graph we follow only out-edges.

## What are the 3 depth traversal for a tree data structure?

Unlike linear data structures (Array, Linked List, Queues, Stacks, etc) which have only one logical way to traverse them, trees can be traversed in different ways. Following are the generally used ways for traversing trees.

## Which is the right way of post ordered tree?

Post Order Traversal of Binary Tree in O(N) using O(1) space

- Find the rightmost child in the left subtree.
- If rightmost child’s right child is NULL. Make current as the right child of the rightmost node. Traverse the left child, current = current->left.
- Otherwise, Set the rightmost child’s right pointer to NULL.

## What are traversal techniques?

In-order Traversal In this traversal method, the left subtree is visited first, then the root and later the right sub-tree. We should always remember that every node may represent a subtree itself. If a binary tree is traversed in-order, the output will produce sorted key values in an ascending order.

## What is the traversal strategy used in the binary tree?

Explanation: The traversal technique used in a binary tree is breadth first traversal, also known as level order traversal.

## What are the two traversal strategies used in traversing a graph?

There are two standard (and simple) ways of traversing all vertices/edges in a graph in a systematic way: BFS and DFS. Most fundamental algorithms on graphs (e.g finding cycles, connected components) are ap- plications of graph traversal. Like finding the way out of a maze (maze = graph).
