Leetcode solution 133: Clone Graph

Problem Statement 

Given a reference of a node in a connected undirected graph, return a deep copy (clone) of the graph. Each node in the graph contains a val (int) and a list (List[Node]) of its neighbors.

Example:
Input:
{"$id":"1","neighbors":[{"$id":"2","neighbors":[{"$ref":"1"},{"$id":"3","neighbors":[{"$ref":"2"},{"$id":"4","neighbors":[{"$ref":"3"},{"$ref":"1"}],"val":4}],"val":3}],"val":2},{"$ref":"4"}],"val":1}

Explanation:
Node 1's value is 1, and it has two neighbors: Node 2 and 4.
Node 2's value is 2, and it has two neighbors: Node 1 and 3.
Node 3's value is 3, and it has two neighbors: Node 2 and 4.
Node 4's value is 4, and it has two neighbors: Node 1 and 3.

Note:
  1. The number of nodes will be between 1 and 100.
  2. The undirected graph is a simple graph, which means no repeated edges and no self-loops in the graph.
  3. Since the graph is undirected, if node p has node q as neighbor, then node q must have node p as neighbor too.
  4. You must return the copy of the given node as a reference to the cloned graph.

Thought Process

It's a basic graph problem that can be solved in 3 different ways: BFS using queue, DFS using recursion, DFS using stack(very similar to BFT using queue). The trick is using a map to keep a one-to-one mapping between the old nodes and the copied nodes, meanwhile, we can also use the map to avoid a cycle when performing BFS or DFS.

Solutions

BFS using queue

Time Complexity: O(N)
Space Complexity: O(N) the extra queue and map


DFS using recursion

Time Complexity: O(N)
Space Complexity: O(N) the extra map


DFS using stack

Time Complexity: O(N)
Space Complexity: O(N) the extra queue and stack
