Title:  The Graph Isomorphism Problem

Abstract:   It is unknown whether two graphs can be tested for isomorphism in polynomial time. A classical approach to the Graph Isomorphism Problem is the d-dimensional Weisfeiler-Lehman algorithm. For fixed d, the Weisfeiler-Lehman algorithm runs in polynomial time, and it can distinguish many, but not all pairs of non-isomorphic graphs. I will present different polynomial time algorithms that can distinguish more pairs of graphs in polynomial time.
