Maximal Matching (MM):

Given a undirected graph return a maximal matching for the graph. For timing purposes the input can either be an adjacency array format with all edges appearing in both directions, or an edge array with all edges appearing in just one direction. Any maximal matching is valid.

Input and Output File Formats

The input is a graph in the in the edge graph format. The output is a sequence of integers corresponding to the locations of all the edges in the maximal matching with respect to the input (zero based). The output needs to be in the sequence format. The edge indices need not be sorted in the output.

For timing purposes any code is allowed to covert from the edge array format to an adjacency format outside of the timed code, but is not allowed to do any other processing of the graph (e.g. reordering to improve locality).

Default Input Distributions

Each distribution should be run for n=10,000,000. The edge weights are selected at random. The weights used for average time are given in parentheses.
