In this paper, a branch and bound algorithm for computing the treewidth of a graph is presented. The method incorporates extensions of existing results, and uses new pruning and reduction rules, based upon roperties of the adopted branching strategy. We discuss how the algorithm can not only be used to obtain exact bounds for the treewidth, but also to obtain upper and/or lower bounds. Computational results of the algorithm are presented
