 Eulerian path - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Euler observed that a necessary condition for the existence of Eulerian cycles is that all vertices in the graph have an even degree, and that for an Eulerian path either all, or all but two, vertices have an even degree; this means the Königsberg graph is not Eulerian.
An Eulerian path, Eulerian trail or Euler walk in an undirected graph is a path that uses each edge exactly once.
The definition and properties of Eulerian paths, cycles and graphs are valid for multigraphs as well.

In mathematics, a path in a graph is a sequence of vertices such that from each of its vertices there is an edge to the successor vertex.
An Eulerian path, Eulerian trail or Euler walk in a undirected graph is a path that uses each edge exactly once.
A directed graph version of Eulerian cycle result and algorithm can be obtained in a similar fashion except that the even degree condition is replaced by an equal in- and out-degrees condition.

Traditionally, a path is graph consisted of a sequence of successively incident edges and their endvertices, where the terminating vertices are distinct.
An Eulerian path in a graph is a path that uses each edge precisely once.
A directed path, or just a path when the context is clear, is an oriented simple path such that all arcs go the same direction, meaning all internal vertices have in- and out-degrees 1.

 CLOSED EULERIAN PATH   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
A path is a sequence of vertices such that from each of its vertices there is an edge to the successor vertex.
In the example graph, (1, 2, 5, 1, 2, 3) is a path with length 5, and (5, 2, 1) is a simple path of length 2.
While determining whether a given graph has an Eulerian path or cycle is trivial, solving the same problem for Hamiltonian paths and cycles appears to be extremely hard.

A path which connects all the nodes using all the edges only once was the one which was sought by the people of K. Such path,in the language of Graph Thoery (GT) is called the Eulerian path.
Path is the walk in which all nodes are distinct(except for initial and final point which is a closed path).
Euler found that The path envisaged by citizens of K is not possible (this path is now called Eulerian Path) since degree of each vertex (number of edges reaching the vertex) is odd number.

 Eulerian Paths and Cycles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
There can be an Eulerian path only if the graph is connected, meaning that for any pair of distinct nodes, there is a path from one to the other (see Figure 4).
A graph has a Eulerian path if and only if the graph is connected and the number of vertices with odd degree is either 0 or 2.
If the number is 0, then any Eulerian path is an Eulerian cycle; if it is 2, then an Eulerian path must begin at one of the vertices of odd degree and end at the other.

 Eulerian Cycle / Chinese Postman
Finally, a directed graph contains an Eulerian path iff (1) it is connected and (2) all but two vertices have the same in-degree as out-degree, and these two vertices have their in-degree and out-degree differ by one.
Given this characterization of Eulerian graphs, it is easy to test in linear time whether such a cycle exists: test whether the graph is connected using DFS or BFS, and then count the number of odd-degree vertices.
Finding the best set of shortest paths to add to G reduces to identifying a minimum-weight perfect matching in a graph on the odd-degree vertices, where the weight of edge (i,j) is the length of the shortest path from i to j.

There should be an explanation of how unicursality (?) relates to an Eulerian path so that the link doesn't seem confusing.
Furthermore, G has an Euler path iff every vertex has even degree except for two distinct vertices, which have odd degree.
When this is the case, the Euler path starts at one and ends at the other of these two vertices of odd degree." Is this contradicting the article?

Such a path is called a dual Eulerian path and the next section provides a brief introduction to the graph theoretic background required to understand how the cell generator works.
An Eulerian path through a graph is one which visits each edge of the graph once and only once.

However the graph would have up to 4^8=65,536 vetices and probably more arcs (the simplest Hamiltonian path requires n-1 arcs, where n is the number of vertices, to join all the vertices together, and the real case of SBH would be much more complicated).
Hamiltonian path is proved to be NP-complete, so it is not possible to apply for fragments that have hundreds of nucleotides.
The algorithm to find an Eulerian path is also well studied and it is linear with respect to the number of arcs.

 Counting paths   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
There is an interesting relation between the number of paths in a diagram and the number to be found in the dual diagram.
A Hamiltonian path is one which visits each node of the diagram once (clearly, the diagram must be connected), while an Eulerian path is one which traverses every link once (in the proper direction) even though nodes are repeated during the voyage.
A Hamiltonian path, one of which is usually hard to find, becomes an Eulerian path in the antidual diagram, criteria for which are generally easier to obtain.

Euler's Theorem tells us the conditions under which an Eulerian path or Eulerian circuit exists in a connected graph (circuit: all even vertices; path: all even, or a single pair of odd vertices).
If so, neatly draw the path or circuit on the graph, indicating clearly the starting vertex and the order in which the edges are traversed.
There is a path (not a circuit, as there is a pair of odd vertices) for the graph at left; and there is a circuit (all vertices even) for the graph at right.

We abandon the classical "overlap - layout - consensus" approach in favor of a new Eulerian Superpath approach that, for the first time, resolves the problem of repeats in fragment assembly.
Our main result is the reduction of the fragment assembly to a variation of the classical Eulerian path problem.

Now the Bridges problem becomes: "Is it possible to pass over each edge exactly once and return to the starting vertex?" This is the same as asking: "Is there an Eulerian Circuit?" (after Leonhard Euler (pronounced "oiler"), who was a prolific mathematician, the "father" of graph theory, and the first to solve this puzzle).
An Eulerian Path is almost exactly like an Eulerian Circuit, except you don't have to finish where you started.
