Definition: A graph whose edges are unordered pairs of vertices, and the same pair of vertices can be connected by multiple edges.
Formal Definition: Same as graph, but E is a bag of edges, not a set.
Generalization (I am a kind of ...)
Aggregate parent (I am a part of or used in ...)
See also hypergraph.
Note: A definition of "pseudograph" is a multigraph that may have self-loops.
