Abstract

In the last few years the studies on complex networks have gained extensive research interests. Significant impacts are made by these studies on a wide range of different areas including social networks, technology networks, biological networks and others. Motivated by understanding the structure of ecological networks we introduce in this paper a new algorithm for enumerating all chordless cycles. The proposed algorithm is a recursive one based on the depth-first search.
