The random arboretum generates random trees.

Press the SPACE BAR to randomly attach a new node to another node.

Press c to clear.

This is what's called a force-directed graph layout.
Vertices are particles.
Springs are connected where there are edges.
All other particles repel each other.
This tries to settle to a even layout of the graph.
Kamada-Kawai and Fruchterman Rheingold are the standard algorithms.
