Graph Coloring: Comparing Cluster Graphs to Factor Graphs

by   Simon Streicher, et al.
Stellenbosch University

We present a means of formulating and solving graph coloring problems with probabilistic graphical models. In contrast to the prevalent literature that uses factor graphs for this purpose, we instead approach it from a cluster graph perspective. Since there seems to be a lack of algorithms to automatically construct valid cluster graphs, we provide such an algorithm (termed LTRIP). Our experiments indicate a significant advantage for preferring cluster graphs over factor graphs, both in terms of accuracy as well as computational efficiency.
