Massive graphs are ubiquitous in various application domains, such as social networks, road networks, communication networks, biological networks, RDF graphs, and so on. Such graphs are massive (for example, with hundreds of millions of nodes and edges or even more) and contain rich information (for example, node/edge weights, labels and textual contents). In such massive graphs, an important class of problems is to process various graph structure related queries. Graph reachability, as an example, asks whether a node can reach another in a graph. However, the large graph scale presents new challenges for efficient query processing.
In this talk, I will introduce two new yet important types of graph reachability queries: weight constraint reachability that imposes edge weight constraint on the answer path, and k-hop reachability that imposes a length constraint on the answer path. With such realistic constraints, we can find more meaningful and practically feasible answers. These two reachablity queries have wide applications in many real-world problems, such as QoS routing and trip planning.
