### Edit distance vs. canonical adjacency matrix distance

Let $G$ and $G'$ be two simple random graphs on the same set of nodes. Let $d_{edit}$ be the edit distance between $G$ and $G'$. Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{A'}$ be the adjacency matrices of the ...

### Generate all non-isomorphic partitions $\pi = \{ \{1, …, n-1\}, \{n\} \}$ for all graphs of order $n$

Let $G$ be any connected, undirected, and unweighted graph of order $n$.
Let $\pi = \{ \{ 1, ..., n-1 \}, \{ n \} \}$ be partitioning of $G$ such that always $n-1$ vertices are in the first cluster ...

### Generating k-partite graphs

Does there exist an efficient algorithm for generating all non-isomorphic k-partite graphs up to a certain order $n$? I've read through the nauty tutorial, but it doesn't look like anything beyond ...

### An example of when nauty, on two different platforms, gives different canonical labels for the same input graph? [closed]

Let $G$ be a graph. I've heard that, if we use nauty to canonically label $G$ on two different platforms, it's possible to obtain distinct labels. However, I've never actually seen this occur.
The ...

### Is there a canonical labelling package optimised for small graphs?

Recently, I've been looking into motifs in networks (directed graphs) -- small connected induced subgraphs that appear significantly more frequently than in a "similar random graph".
In practice, we ...
