### Pronunciation

- Rhymes: -ɑːf

### Noun

- A diagram displaying data, in particular one showing the relationship between two or more variables; specifically, for a function f(x_1, x_2, \ldots, x_n), the set of all tuples (x_1, x_2, \ldots, x_n, f(x_1, x_2, \ldots, x_n)).
- An ordered pair (V,E), where V is a set of elements called vertices (or nodes) and E is a set of pairs of elements of V, called edges; informally, a set of vertices together with a set edges that join these vertices.
