There's a couple of things I need in my diagrams which I can't seem to figure out how to do. Firstly, I need arrows of two different colours - straight arrows one colour, bent arrows another. And I also need to have information outside of but next to each circle (eitherA=1 or A=0). Help would be much appreciated!




\begin{tikzpicture}[->,>=stealth',shorten >=1pt,auto,node distance=2.8cm,
  %\tikzstyle{every state}=[fill=white,draw=black,text=black]

  \node[state]       (A)                    {$w_1$};
  \node[state]         (B) [above left of=A] {$w_2$};
  \node[state]         (C) [above right of=A] {$w_3$};

\path (A) edge              node {} (B)
               %edge              node {} (C)
        edge [bend right] node {} (C)
        (B) edge        node {} (A)
            %edge              node {0,1,L} (C)
        %(C) edge              node {0,1,L} (D)
           % edge [bend left]  node {1,0,R} (E)
        (C) %edge [loop below] node {1,1,R} (C)
            edge              node {} (A);
        %(E) edge [bend left]  node {1,0,R} (A);


You can add colours as either arguments to the \path command and/or to each edge. For example,

 \path[red] (A)
 edge (B)
 edge [bend right, blue] (C)

will make the default colour red but colour the bent curve blue.

To put information close to the nodes, add a label=pos:text argument to the \node statment, e.g.

\node[state, label=left:{$A=1$}] (B) {$w_2$};

The presence of = in your "text" means you have enclose it in {...} brackets.

Sample output




\begin{tikzpicture}[->,>=stealth',shorten >=1pt,auto,node
  distance=2.8cm, semithick]

  \node[state, label=below:{$A=3$}] (A) {$w_1$};
  \node[state, label=left:{$A=1$}] (B) [above left of=A] {$w_2$};
  \node[state, label=right:{$A=0$}] (C) [above right of=A] {$w_3$};

  \path[red] (A)
  edge node {} (B)
  edge [bend right, blue] node {} (C)
  (B) edge node {} (A)
  (C) edge node {} (A);


Should you wish to style the labels you can either set the every label style or write something like

\node[state, label={[font=\small]left:$A=1$}] (B) {$w_2$};
