A time-dependent assembly tree for a connected graph G=(V, E) on n vertices is a rooted tree, each node of which is label a subset U of V and a nonnegative integer i such that:

1) each internal node has at least two children,

2) there are leaves labeled (v, 0) for each vertex v in V,

3) the label on the root is (V, m) for 1 <= m <= n-1,

4) for each node (U, i) with i < m, U is the union of the {u} for the children (u, 0) of (U, i),

5) if (U, i) and (U', i') are adjacent nodes with U a subset of U', then i<i',

6) for each 0 <= i <= m, there exists a node (U, i) with U a subset of V.

A time-dependent assembly tree is said to satisfy the edge gluing rule if each internal vertex v of G has exactly two children and if U_1 and U_2 are the labels of the children of internal vertex v, then there is an edge (v_1,v_2) in the edge set of G such that v_1 is in U_1 and v_2 is in U_2.
