Many scientific applications entail solving the subgraph isomorphism problem, i.e., given an input pattern graph, find all the subgraphs of a (usually much larger) target graph that are structurally equivalent to that input. Because subgraph isomorphism is NP-complete, methods to solve it have to use heuristics. This work evaluates subgraph isomorphism methods to assess their computational behavior on a wide range of synthetic and real graphs. Surprisingly, our experiments show that, among the leading algorithms, certain heuristics based only on pattern graphs are the most efficient.
