# List of graphs

## From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This partial **list of graphs** contains definitions of graphs and graph families. For collected definitions of graph theory terms that do not refer to individual graph types, such as *vertex* and *path*, see Glossary of graph theory. For links to existing articles about particular kinds of graphs, see Category:Graphs. Some of the finite structures considered in graph theory have names, sometimes inspired by the graph's topology, and sometimes after their discoverer. A famous example is the Petersen graph, a concrete graph on 10 vertices that appears as a minimal example or counterexample in many different contexts.
