@article{Pashanasangi2020EfficientlyCV, title={Efficiently Counting Vertex Orbits of All 5-vertex Subgraphs, by EVOKE}, author={Noujan Pashanasangi and C. Seshadhri}, journal={Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining}, year={2020} }

Subgraph counting is a fundamental task in network analysis. Typically, algorithmic work is on total counting, where we wish to count the total frequency of a (small) pattern subgraph in a large input data set. But many applications require local counts (also called vertex orbit counts) wherein, for every vertex v of the input graph, one needs the count of the pattern subgraph involving v. This provides a rich set of vertex features that can be used in machine learning tasks, especially…
