Hello I need to customize the graph in this link, which is for 5 dimensions with 6 levels (I consider each level as a one distance away from the origin or the level before it): http://www.cs.sunysb.edu/~skiena/combinatorica/animations/ham.html how can I make the function in /Combinatorica :/ ShowGraph[ a = BooleanAlgebra[2]] for 2D, or ShowGraph[ a = BooleanAlgebra[3]] for 3D work on more levels? An example of my understanding of a 2D and 3D tensors is provided here: http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~mhelal/2DDepNetwork.pdf http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~mhelal/3DDepNetwork.pdf Each node has k-children where k is the rank of the tensor. The nodes in a level have overlapping parents from a previous level. This keeps growing till the middle level, then the number of nodes will start to decay, till it becomes one at the last level. There are equations for the relationship between the tensor shape (upper bounds of each dimension, but I can assume they are all the same) and the total waves (levels in the graph), and the number of nodes in each level. Can I use these equations to customize the graph? I have done these graphics manually, but I need to do more analysis and draw more graphs for higher dimensions and more levels in the graph, and I am sure mathematica can help. There is an obvious symmetry in the dependency arrows between the nodes, and I am not sure whether there is an equation that can scale well with dimensionality, where I can parameterize it with the dimensionality, level in the graph, node order, and it can give me the node orders of its parents on the lower level, and its children on the higher level? It is a research question, and if someone is willing to collaborate, we can publish a paper together, because I come from computer science background, not really math. However, finding an answer for this question can significantly speed up my application. I appreciate your help a lot, Kind Regards, Manal
