Subgraph Matching on Multiplex Networks


An active area of research in computational science is the design of algorithms for solving the subgraph matching problem to find copies of a given template graph in a larger world graph. Prior works have largely addressed single-channel networks using a variety of approaches. We present a suite of filtering methods for subgraph isomorphisms for multiplex networks (with different types of edges between nodes and more than one edge within each channel type). We aim to understand the entire solution space rather than focusing on finding one isomorphism. Results are shown on several classes of datasets: (a) Sudoku puzzles mapped to the subgraph isomorphism problem, (b) Erdős-Rényi multigraphs, (c) real-world datasets from Twitter and transportation networks, (d) synthetic data created for the DARPA MAA program.
