Force-based algorithms (graph drawing)

While graph drawing can be a difficult problem, force-directed algorithms, being physical simulations, usually require no special knowledge about graph theory such as planarity. Forces[edit] An alternative model considers a spring-like force for every pair of nodes. Graph Computation, Layout, Algorithms for JavaScript. jLayout — JavaScript Layout Algorithms - Theory.
