Isomorphism Checking for Symmetry Reduction


Rensink, Arend (2010) Isomorphism Checking for Symmetry Reduction. [Report]

open access
Abstract:In this paper, we show how isomorphism checking can be used as an effective technique for symmetry reduction. Reduced state spaces are equivalent to the original ones under a strong notion of bisimilarity which preserves the multiplicity of outgoing transitions, and therefore also preserves stochastic temporal logics. We have implemented this in a setting where states are arbitrary graphs. Since no efficiently computable canonical representation is known for arbitrary graphs modulo isomorphism, we define an isomorphism-predicting hash function on the basis of an existing partition refinement algorithm. As an example, we report a factorial state space reduction on a model of an ad-hoc network connectivity protocol.
