This key is present in every gaussianRingData that comes from a graph of class MixedGraph. It is equal to the set of vertices that are incident to bidirected edges. For more details, check component W in partitionLMG.





Since the gaussian rings of graphs of classes Digraph and Bigraph are created by first changing the class to MixedGraph, the key compW is also present in the gaussianRingData hashtables of these two classes of graphs and the corresponding value is computed according to the rules described in partitionLMG.
