Project Statement
We study the characteristics of graph datasets and their implications on the locality of graph analytics. In this way, we identify the connection between different vertex types and investigate how this connection affects the locality of memory accesses. These patterns are used to propose new algorithms with enhanced performance for graph analytics.
