Euler path of undirected graph in O(M)

Revision en2, by AshutoshChoudhary, 2024-02-23 03:31:04

I was trying to solve the problem, find Euler path / circuit of an undirected graph if it exists

I was reading this tutorial from cp algorithms,

https://cp-algorithms.com/graph/euler_path.html

where they use adjacency matrix to find the next adjacent node or edge that has not been marked / removed, in the tutorial they mention that we should use adjacency list to store adjacent nodes to achieve time complexity of O(M)

But how will we remove edges in O(1) we can remove an adjacent node v, from the adjacency list of u in O(1) but how to remove u from adjacency list of v, for example if the the current node is u, then to remove an adjacent node we can do v = adjacency_list[u].pop_back()

but now to remove u from the adjacency list of v, we need O(N) time or LogN time if we use set, is there any way to achieve this in O(1) ?
