Representing Equivalence Problems for Combinatorial Objects
Keywords:Isomorphisms, Graphs, Binary Matrices, Combinatorial Objects
AbstractMethods for representing equivalence problems of various combinatorial objects
as graphs or binary matrices are considered. Such representations can be used
for isomorphism testing in classification or generation algorithms.
Often it is easier to consider a graph or a binary matrix isomorphism problem
than to implement heavy algorithms depending especially on particular combinatorial
objects. Moreover, there already exist well tested algorithms for the graph isomorphism
problem (nauty) and the binary matrix isomorphism problem as well (Q-Extension).
