# Java Program to Implement Hopcroft Algorithm

This is a Java Program to Implement Hopcroft Karp Algorithm. The Hopcroft–Karp algorithm is an algorithm that takes as input a bipartite graph and produces as output a maximum cardinality matching – a set of as many edges as possible with the property that no two edges share an endpoint.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Implement Hopcroft Algorithm. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
