Distance-Geometric Graph Convolutional Network (DG-GCN)

07/06/2020 ∙ by Daniel T Chang, et al. ∙ 0

The distance-geometric graph representation adopts a unified scheme (distance) for representing the geometry of three-dimensional(3D) graphs. It is invariant to rotation and translation of the graph and it reflects pair-wise node interactions and their generally local nature. To facilitate the incorporation of geometry in deep learning on 3D graphs, we propose a message-passing graph convolutional network based on the distance-geometric graph representation: DG-GCN (distance-geometric graph convolution network). It utilizes continuous-filter convolutional layers, with filter-generating networks, that enable learning of filter weights from distances, thereby incorporating the geometry of 3D graphs in graph convolutions. Our results for the ESOL and FreeSolv datasets show major improvement over those of standard graph convolutions. They also show significant improvement over those of geometric graph convolutions employing edge weight / edge distance power laws. Our work demonstrates the utility and value of DG-GCN for end-to-end deep learning on 3D graphs.
