Since exactly computing GED is NP-hard, over the past years, various heuristics have been proposed. They use techniques such as transformations to the linear sum assignment problem with error correction, local search, and linear programming to approximate GED via upper or lower bounds. In this paper, we provide a systematic overview of the most important heuristics. Moreover, we empirically evaluate all compared heuristics within an integrated implementation.", issn="0949-877X", doi="10.1007/s00778-019-00544-1", url="Springer:=https://doi.org/10.1007/s00778-019-00544-1, HAL:=https://hal-normandie-univ.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-02189832", theme={pattern,ged}
