Abstract : Some of the requirements of a computer system for searching chemical compound structure analogs are reviewed and algorithms are offered where appropriate. Among the factors discussed are file organization and data elements, the use of screens, the question of maximum query volume of a single pass of a master file, and the question of canonical ordering of finite undirected graphs to permit the determination of isomorphism between graphs.
