(definition)

Definition: A connected graph such that deleting any two vertices (and incident edges) results in a graph that is still connected.

See also biconnected graph, k-connected graph, cut vertex.

Note: After Tomas Rokicki <rokicki@instantis.com>, 24 December 2002.

Informally, there are at least three independent paths from any vertex to any other vertex. After Paul M. Sant, 6 Sep 2000.
