### Degree-constrained Subgraph Reconfiguration is in P

The degree-constrained subgraph problem asks for a subgraph of a given graph
such that the degree of each vertex is within some specified bounds. We study
the following reconfiguration variant of this problem: Given two solutions to a
degree-constrained subgraph instance, can we transform one solution into the
other by adding and removing individual edges, such that each intermediate
subgraph satisfies the degree constraints and contains at least a certain
minimum number of edges? This problem is a generalization of the matching
reconfiguration problem, which is known to be in P. We show that even in the
more general setting the reconfiguration problem is in P.Comment: Full version of the paper published at Mathematical Foundations of

### Maintenance of Strongly Connected Component in Shared-memory Graph

In this paper, we present an on-line fully dynamic algorithm for maintaining
strongly connected component of a directed graph in a shared memory
architecture. The edges and vertices are added or deleted concurrently by fixed
number of threads. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work to
propose using linearizable concurrent directed graph and is build using both
ordered and unordered list-based set. We provide an empirical comparison
against sequential and coarse-grained. The results show our algorithm's
throughput is increased between 3 to 6x depending on different workload
distributions and applications. We believe that there are huge applications in
the on-line graph. Finally, we show how the algorithm can be extended to
community detection in on-line graph.Comment: 29 pages, 4 figures, Accepted in the Conference NETYS-201

### Efficient Implementation of a Synchronous Parallel Push-Relabel Algorithm

Motivated by the observation that FIFO-based push-relabel algorithms are able
to outperform highest label-based variants on modern, large maximum flow
problem instances, we introduce an efficient implementation of the algorithm
that uses coarse-grained parallelism to avoid the problems of existing parallel
approaches. We demonstrate good relative and absolute speedups of our algorithm
on a set of large graph instances taken from real-world applications. On a
modern 40-core machine, our parallel implementation outperforms existing
sequential implementations by up to a factor of 12 and other parallel
implementations by factors of up to 3

### Theoretically Efficient Parallel Graph Algorithms Can Be Fast and Scalable

There has been significant recent interest in parallel graph processing due
to the need to quickly analyze the large graphs available today. Many graph
codes have been designed for distributed memory or external memory. However,
today even the largest publicly-available real-world graph (the Hyperlink Web
graph with over 3.5 billion vertices and 128 billion edges) can fit in the
memory of a single commodity multicore server. Nevertheless, most experimental
work in the literature report results on much smaller graphs, and the ones for
the Hyperlink graph use distributed or external memory. Therefore, it is
natural to ask whether we can efficiently solve a broad class of graph problems
on this graph in memory.
This paper shows that theoretically-efficient parallel graph algorithms can
scale to the largest publicly-available graphs using a single machine with a
terabyte of RAM, processing them in minutes. We give implementations of
theoretically-efficient parallel algorithms for 20 important graph problems. We
also present the optimizations and techniques that we used in our
implementations, which were crucial in enabling us to process these large
graphs quickly. We show that the running times of our implementations
outperform existing state-of-the-art implementations on the largest real-world
graphs. For many of the problems that we consider, this is the first time they
have been solved on graphs at this scale. We have made the implementations
developed in this work publicly-available as the Graph-Based Benchmark Suite
(GBBS).Comment: This is the full version of the paper appearing in the ACM Symposium
