Hi all,

I have as inputs a simple graph G and a subgraph H. I want as output the graph G-H, defined as the graph obtained from G by removing the edges of H (without removing any vertices).

H is given like this: H=G.random_subgraph(.25)

Is there a command like G.delete_edges(H) that returns the desired graph?

Thank you.

No, personal interest. I used sage for graph theory once years ago, now I'm starting to use it again, don't know much.

sage: G = Graph([(1,2),(2,3),(3,4),(4,5)])
sage: H = Graph([(1,2),(4,5)])
sage: G_minus_H = G.copy()
sage: G_minus_H.delete_edges(H.edges())
sage: G_minus_H.vertices()
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
sage: G_minus_H.edges(labels=False)
[(2, 3), (3, 4)]
