Graph algorithms that operate on graphs in any representation

Graph algorithms that do not specify a particular approach for representing a Graph.

Functions in this package will take arguments that provide the mechanism for traversing the graph. For example two common approaches for representing a graph:

```
class Graph {
Map<Node, List<Node>> nodes;
}
class Node {
// Interesting data
}
```

```
class Graph {
Node root;
}
class Node {
List<Node> edges;
// Interesting data
}
```

Any representation can be adapted to the needs of the algorithm:

- Some algorithms need to associate data with each node in the graph. If the
node type
`T`

does not correctly or efficiently implement`hashCode`

or`==`

, you may provide optional`equals`

and/or`hashCode`

functions are parameters. - Algorithms which need to traverse the graph take a
`edges`

function which provides the reachable nodes.`(node) => graph[node]`

`(node) => node.edges`

Graphs that are resolved asynchronously will have similar functions which
return `FutureOr`

.
