Treewidth-based Index for Efficient Reachability Query Answering on 

Efficiently processing queries against very large graphs is an important
research topic largely driven by emerging real world applications, as
diverse as XML databases, GIS, web mining, social network analysis, 
ontologies, and bioinformatics. In particular, graph reachability has 
attracted a lot of research attention as reachability queries are not only 
common on graph databases, but they also serve as fundamental operations 
for many other graph queries. The main challenge of answering reachability 
queries is how to build efficient indices over the graphs in order to 
achieve the best space/time performance.

Many approaches have been proposed for building indices on these graphs.
However, due to the large number of vertices in many real world graphs, 
the computational cost and (index) size of the indices using existing 
methods would prove too expensive to be practical.

In this talk, we introduce our ongoing work on a novel index structure 
based on the treewidth of the underlying graph. We show that the size of 
the index for the underlying graph remains linear and the reachability 
query can be solved in $O(log n)$ where $n$ is the number of vertices in 
the graph. We demonstrate empirically the effectiveness of our approach.
