## Documentation

In a control-flow graph (CFG), block M dominates block N if every path from the entry that reaches block N has to pass through block M. The entry block dominates all blocks.

Block M immediately dominates block N if M dominates N, and there is no intervening block P such that M dominates P and P dominates N. In other words, M is the last dominator on any path from entry to N. Each block has a unique immediate dominator, if it has any at all.

This fast dominator code is based upon Lengauer and Tarjan, *A Fast Algorithm for Finding Dominators in a Flowgraph*, ACM TOPLAS 1:1, pp. 121--141, July 1979. It runs in time `O(|E|\log|V|)`, where `|E|`is the number of edges and `|V|` is the number of vertices. A smaller time bound of `O(|E|\alpha(|E|,|V|))`, where `alpha` is the inverse of Ackerman's function, can be achieved with more complex versions of the internal `link!` and `eval!` procedures.

### Procedures

`graph-find-dominators-quickly!:`procedureComputes the dominator tree of the given rooted, directed graph. When done, the meta-data field of each node will contain its immediate dominator. It assumes that the meta-data slot for each node contains a list, and modifies the car of that list. Requires that the list initially contain

`#f`as its car value.

`graph-find-dominators-slowly!:`procedureThe fast dominator algorithm is difficult to prove correct, so this procedure is provided in order to check its results. The slow algorithm, which runs in time

`O(|E||V|)`, is adapted from Aho and Ullman,*The Theory of Parsing, Translation, and Compiling*, Prentice-Hall, 1973, p. 916.
