Graph isomorphism (GI) is one of the few remaining problems in NP whose complexity status couldn't be solved by classifying it as being either NP-complete or solvable in P. Nevertheless, efficient (polynomial-time or even NC) algorithms for restricted versions of GI have been found over the last four decades. Depending on the graph class, the design and analysis of algorithms for GI use tools from various fields, such as combinatorics, algebra and logic. In this paper, we collect several… Expand

This paper studies the computational complexity of isomorphism testing for line graphs of t-(v,k,@l) designs and shows that t-designs can be reconstructed from their line graphs in polynomial-time. Expand
Hardness of robust graph isomorphism, Lasserre gaps, and asymmetry of random graphs
It is shown that there are pairs of nonisomorphic n-vertex graphs G and H such that any sum-of-squares (SOS) proof of non isomorphism requires degree Ω(n), and an O(n)-round integrality gap for the Lasserre SDP relaxation is shown. Expand
Attacks on difficult instances of graph isomorphism: sequential and parallel algorithms
The graph isomorphism problem has received a great deal of attention on both theoretical and practical fronts. However, a polynomial algorithm for the problem has yet to be found. Even so, the bestExpand

We show that Graph Isomorphism problem (GI) can be solved in \(\mathcal{O}(n^{2})\) time for graphs of bounded connected-path-distance-width, and more generally, in \(\mathcal{O}(n^{c + 1})\) timeExpand
Scalable Graph Isomorphism: Combining Pairwise Color Refinement and Backtracking via Compressed Candidate Space
A new approach to graph isomorphism is proposed, which is the framework of pairwise color refinement and binary cell mapping, and compressed CS (candidate space), and partial failing set, which together lead to a much faster and scalable algorithm. Expand
An enhanced classical approach to graph isomorphism using continuous-time quantum walk

Around and Beyond the Isomorphism Problem for Interval Graphs
The class of problems solvable in logarithmic space has recently replenished with the isomorphism testing for interval graphs, and prospects of its extension to larger classes of graphs are discussed. Expand
Graph isomorphism problem is to determine whether two given graphs are isomorphic. It is a particular type of a more general problem “the isomorphism of incidence system”. I propose some newExpand

This paper shows that the graph isomorphism problem is hard under logarithmic space many-one reductions for the complexity classes NL, PL, and Mod/sub k/L and for the class DET of problems NC/sup 1/ reducible to the determinant. Expand

Testing isomorphism of graphs of valence ≤ t is polynomial-time reducible to the color automorphism problem for groups with small simple sections, and some results on primitive permutation groups are used to show that the algorithm runs inPolynomial time. Expand
An optimal lower bound on the number of variables for graph identification
It is shown that Ω(n) variables are needed for first-order logic with counting to identify graphs onn vertices, equivalent to the (k−1)-dimensional Weisfeiler-Lehman method, and the lower bound is optimal up to multiplication by a constant. Expand
