The (k,b)-butterfly consists of k+1 layers. Each layer consists of b^k nodes, representing the k-digit numbers about an alphabet of cardinality b. Moving from one layer i to the next layer (i+1) means to choose the i-th digit value.
For any pair of nodes, one node on layer 0 and one node on layer k, there is a unique directed path connecting these nodes.
The maximal bicliques are K_b,b, and every node is incident with such a biclique. In the standard setting, b equals 2, and the K_2,2 bicliques have motivated the term butterfly.
