Path Problems in Structured Graphs


A structured graph is a hierarchy of graphs which provides a representation of a graph at variable detail levels. In this paper we investigate the path problem in a structured graph. The concept of structured graph is defined, and a formal definition of path in such a structure is given. The relationship between structured paths and canonical ones in the graph represented by a structured graph is investigated. Algorithms to construct paths and to compute a structured path from a given canonical one are presented.
