Graph isomorphism

  1. 1. Graph IsomorphismAlgorithms and networks
  2. 2. Today• Graph isomorphism: definition• Complexity: isomorphism completeness• The refinement heuristic• Isomorphism for trees – Rooted trees – Unrooted trees Graph Isomorphism 2
  3. 3. Graph Isomorphism• Two graphs G=(V,E) and H=(W,F) are isomorphic if there is a bijective function f: V W such that for all v, w V: – {v,w} E {f(v),f(w)} F Graph Isomorphism 3
  4. 4. Variant for labeled graphs• Let G = (V,E), H=(W,F) be graphs with vertex labelings l: V L, l’ L.• G and H are isomorphic labeled graphs, if there is a bijective function f: V W such that – For all v, w V: {v,w} E {f(v),f(w)} F – For all v V: l(v) = l’(f(v)).• Application: organic chemistry: – determining if two molecules are identical. Graph Isomorphism 4
  5. 5. Complexity of graph isomorphism • Problem is in NP, but – No NP-completeness proof is known – No polynomial time algorithm is knownIf P NP NP-complete ? isomorphism Graph NP P Graph Isomorphism 5
  6. 6. Isomorphism-complete• Problems are isomorphism- complete, if they are `equally hard’ as graph isomorphism – Isomorphism of bipartite graphs – Isomorphism of labeled graphs – Automorphism of graphs • Given: a graph G=(V,E) • Question: is there a non-trivial automorphism, i.e., a bijective function f: V V, not the identity, with for all v,w V: – {v,w} E, if and only if {f(v),f(w)} E. Graph Isomorphism 6
  7. 7. More isomorphism complete problems• Finding a graph isomorphism f• Isomorphism of semi-groups• Isomorphism of finite automata• Isomorphism of finite algebra’s• Isomorphism of – Connected graphs – Directed graphs – Regular graphs – Perfect graphs – Chordal graphs – Graphs that are isomorphic with their complement Graph Isomorphism 7
  8. 8. Special cases are easier• Polynomial time algorithms for – Graphs of bounded degree – Planar graphs This course – Trees• Expected polynomial time for random graphs Graph Isomorphism 8
  9. 9. An equivalence relation on vertices• Say v ~ w, if and only if there is an automorphism mapping v to w.• ~ is an equivalence relation• Partitions the vertices in automorphism classes• Tells on structure of graph Graph Isomorphism 9
  10. 10. Iterative vertex partition heuristic the idea• Partition the vertices of G and H in classes• Each class for G has a corresponding class for H.• Property: vertices in class must be mapped to vertices in corresponding class• Refine classes as long as possible• When no refinement possible, check all possible ways that `remain’. Graph Isomorphism 10
  11. 11. Iterative vertex partition heuristic• If |V| |W|, or |E| |F|, output: no. Done.• Otherwise, we partition the vertices of G and H into classes, such that – Each class for G has a corresponding class for H – If f is an isomorphism from G to H, then f(v) belongs to the class, corresponding to the class of v.• First try: vertices belong to the same class, when they have the same degree. – If f is an isomorphism, then the degree of f(v) equals the degree of v for each vertex v. Graph Isomorphism 11
  12. 12. Scheme• Start with sequence SG = (A1) of subsets of G with A1=V, and sequence SH = (B1) of subsets of H with B1=W.• Repeat until … – Replace Ai in SG by Ai1,…,Air and replace Bi in SH by Bi1,…,Bir. • Ai1,…,Air is partition of Ai • Bi1,…,Bir is partition of Bi • For each isormorphism f: v in Aij if and only if f(v) in Bij Graph Isomorphism 12
  13. 13. Possible refinement• Count for each vertex in Ai and Bi how many neighbors they have in Aj and Bj for some i, j.• Set Ais = {v in Ai | v has s neighbors in Aj}.• Set Bis = {v in Bi | v has s neighbors in Bj}.• Invariant: for all v in the ith set in SG, f(v) in the ith set in SH.• If some |Ai| |Bi|, then stop: no isomorphism. Graph Isomorphism 13
  14. 14. Other refinements• Partition upon other characteristics of vertices – Label – Number of vertices at distance d (in a set Ai). –… Graph Isomorphism 14
  15. 15. After refining• If each Ai contains one vertex: check the only possible isomorphism.• Otherwise, cleverly enumerate all functions that are still possible, and check these.• Works well in practice! Graph Isomorphism 15
  16. 16. Isomorphism on trees• Linear time algorithm to test if two (labeled) trees are isomorphic.• Algorithm to test if two rooted trees are isomorphic.• Used as a subroutine for unrooted trees. Graph Isomorphism 16
  17. 17. Rooted tree isomorphism• For a vertex v in T, let T(v) be the subtree of T with v as root.• Level of vertex: distance to root.• If T1 and T2 have different number of levels: not isomorphic, and we stop. Otherwise, we continue: Graph Isomorphism 17
  18. 18. Structure of algorithm• Tree is processed level by level, from bottom to root• Processing a level: – A long label for each vertex is computed – This is transformed to a short label• Vertices in the same layer whose subtrees are isomorphic get the same labels: – If v and w on the same level, then • L(v)=L(w), if and only if T(v) and T(w) are isomorphic with an isomorphism that maps v to w. Graph Isomorphism 18
  19. 19. Labeling procedure• For each vertex, get the set of labels assigned to its children.• Sort these sets. – Bucketsort the pairs (L(w), v) for T1, w child of v – Bucketsort the pairs (L(w), v) for T2, w child of v• For each v, we now have a long label LL(v) which is the sorted set of labels of the children.• Use bucketsort to sort the vertices in T1 and T2 such that vertices with same long label are consecutive in ordering. Graph Isomorphism 19
  20. 20. On sorting w.r.t. the long lists (1)• Preliminary work: – Sort the nodes is the layer on the number of children they have. • Linear time. (Counting sort / Radix sort.) – Make a set of pairs (j,i) with (j,i) in the set when the jth number in a long list is i. – Radix sort this set of pairs. Graph Isomorphism 20
  21. 21. On sorting w.r.t. the long lists (2)• Let q be the maximum length of a long list• Repeat – Distribute among buckets the nodes with at least q children, with respect to the qth label in their long list • Nodes distributed in buckets in earlier round are taken here in the order as they appear in these buckets. • The sorted list of pairs (j,i) is used to skip empty buckets in this step. – q --; – Until q=0. Graph Isomorphism 21
  22. 22. After vertices are sorted with respect to long label• Give vertices with same long label same short label (start counting at 0), and repeat at next level.• If we see that the set of labels for a level of T1 is not equal to the set for the same level of T2, stop: not isomorphic. Graph Isomorphism 22
  23. 23. Time• One layer with n1 nodes with n2 nodes in next layer costs O(n1 + n2) time.• Total time: O(n). Graph Isomorphism 23
  24. 24. Unrooted trees• Center of a tree – A vertex v with the property that the maximum distance to any other vertex in T is as small as possible. – Each tree has a center of one or two vertices.• Finding the center: – Repeat until we have a vertex or a single edge: • Remove all leaves from T. – O(n) time: each vertex maintains current degree in variable. Variables are updated when vertices are removed, and vertices put in set of leaves when their degree becomes 1. Graph Isomorphism 24
  25. 25. Isomorphism of unrooted trees• Note: the center must be mapped to the center• If T1 and T2 both have a center of size 1: – Use those vertices as root.• If T1 and T2 both have a center of size 2: – Try the two different ways of mapping the centers – Or: subdivide the edge between the two centers and take the new vertices as root• Otherwise: not isomorphic.• 1 or 2 calls to isomorphism of rooted trees: O(n). Graph Isomorphism 25
  26. 26. Conclusions• Similar methods work for finding automorphisms• We saw: heuristic for arbitrary graphs, algorithm for trees• There are algorithms for several special graph classes (e.g., planar graphs, graphs of bounded degree,…) Graph Isomorphism 26
