Graph Isomorphism 

The graph isomorphism problem is to determine whether or not two graphs, G=<V,E> and G'=<V',E'>, are isomorphic. That is, does there exist a function f:V→V', that is 11 and onto, and such that <f(u),f(v)> is in E' (is an edge of G') exactly when <u,v> is in E. The computational complexity of graph isomorphism is open in that it is clearly in NP but is not known to be in P or in NPC [as of 2010]. The more general subgraph isomorphism problem is known to be NPcomplete (NPC). One approach to graph isomorphism is to find canonical labellings, canon(G) of G, and canon(G') of G', G and G' being isomorphic iff canon(G)=canon(G'). (The computational complexity of the canonical labelling problem is therefore also open.) ReadingSearch for [isomorphism maths graph] in the computing bibliography.
