花花酱 LeetCode 1761. Minimum Degree of a Connected Trio in a Graph

You are given an undirected graph. You are given an integer n which is the number of nodes in the graph and an array edges, where each edges[i] = [ui, vi] indicates that there is an undirected edge between ui and vi.

connected trio is a set of three nodes where there is an edge between every pair of them.

The degree of a connected trio is the number of edges where one endpoint is in the trio, and the other is not.

Return the minimum degree of a connected trio in the graph, or -1 if the graph has no connected trios.

Example 1:

Input: n = 6, edges = [[1,2],[1,3],[3,2],[4,1],[5,2],[3,6]]
Output: 3
Explanation: There is exactly one trio, which is [1,2,3]. The edges that form its degree are bolded in the figure above.

Example 2:

Input: n = 7, edges = [[1,3],[4,1],[4,3],[2,5],[5,6],[6,7],[7,5],[2,6]]
Output: 0
Explanation: There are exactly three trios:
1) [1,4,3] with degree 0.
2) [2,5,6] with degree 2.
3) [5,6,7] with degree 2.


  • 2 <= n <= 400
  • edges[i].length == 2
  • 1 <= edges.length <= n * (n-1) / 2
  • 1 <= ui, vi <= n
  • u!= vi
  • There are no repeated edges.

Solution: Brute Force

Try all possible Trios.

Time complexity: O(n^3)
Space complexity: O(n^2)
