Two graph isomorphism polytopes

Shmuel Onn

The convex hull $\psi_{n,n}$ of certain $(n!)^2$ tensors was considered recently in connection with graph isomorphism. We consider the convex hull $\psi_n$ of the $n!$ diagonals among these tensors. We show: 1. The polytope $\psi_n$ is a face of $\psi_{n,n}$. 2. Deciding if a graph $G$ has a subgraph isomorphic to $H$ reduces to optimization over $\psi_n$. 3. Optimization over $\psi_n$ reduces to optimization over $\psi_{n,n}$. In particular, this implies that the subgraph isomorphism problem reduces to optimization over $\psi_{n,n}$.
