Being in two parts; having two correspondent parts, as a legal contract or writing, one for each party; shared by two; as, a bipartite treaty.

Divided into two parts almost to the base, as a leaf; consisting of two parts or subdivisions.

divided, nearly to the base, into two parts. cf. bifid.

A graph is bipartite if its vertices can be partitioned into two disjoint subsets U and V such that each edge connects a vertex from U to one from V. A bipartite graph is a complete bipartite graph if every vertex in U is connected to every vertex in V. If U has elements and V has , then we denote the resulting complete bipartite graph by K n,m. The illustration shows K 3,3. See also complete graph and cut vertices.

Bipartite viruses usually infect both boot records and files. "Partite" means broken into parts, with bipartite meaning broken into two parts - infecting two areas of a PC. Also called bimodal or multipartite (most common name).

(adj.): A graph is bipartite if its set of vertices can be split into two parts V1, V2, such that every edge of the graph connects a V1 vertex to a V2 vertex. For example, a hexagon is bipartite but a pentagon is not. More generally, we saw that a graph is bipartite if and only if all cycles in the graph have even length. In particular, all trees (q.v.) are bipartite: a tree has no cycles at all, so a fortiori no odd cycles.

In anthropology and Christian theology, bipartite refers to the view that a human being is a composite of two distinct components, material and immaterial; for example, body and soul. It is synonymous with the concept of mind-body dualism.
