                    BB-Graph: A New Subgraph Isomorphism Algorithm for Querying Big Graph Databases

                    With the emergence of the big data concept, the big graph database model has become very popular                 since it provides very flexible and quick querying for the cases that require costly join operations in                 RDBMs. However, it is a big challenge to find all exact matches of a query graph in a big database                 graph, which is known as the subgraph isomorphism problem. Although many related studies exist in                 literature, there is not a perfect algorithm that works for all types of queries efficiently since it is an                 NP-hard problem. The current subgraph isomorphism approaches built on Ullmann’s idea focus on                 the strategy of pruning out the irrelevant candidates. Nevertheless, for some databases and queries,                 their pruning techniques are inadequate. Therefore, they result in poor performance. Moreover, some                 of those algorithms need large indices that cause extra memory consumption. Motivated by these, we                 introduce a new subgraph isomorphism algorithm, namely BB-Graph, for querying big data graphs                 in an efficient manner without requiring large data structures. We test and compare our algorithm                 with the existing ones, GraphQL and Cypher of Neo4j, on some very big graph database applications
                    and show that our algorithm performs better for most of the query types.
