Graphs provide us with a powerful and flexible representation formalism which can be employed in various fields of intelligent information processing. The process of evaluating the similarity of graphs is referred to as graph matching. Two approaches to this task exist, viz. exact and inexact graph matching. The former approach aims at finding a strict correspondence between two graphs to be matched, while the latter is able to cope with errors and measures the difference of two graphs in a broader sense. The present chapter reviews some fundamental concepts of both paradigms and shows two recent applications of graph matching in the fields of information retrieval and pattern recognition.
