WebGraph - Framework for studying Web graphs

WebGraph is a framework for studying Web graphs. It provides simple methods for managing very large graphs by exploiting modern compression techniques.

It consists of a set of flat codes suitable for storing web graphs (or, in general, integers with power-law distribution in a certain exponent range); compression algorithms that provide a high compression ratio; algorithms for accessing a compressed graph without actually decompressing it (decompression is delayed until it is actually necessary; and documentation and data sets.
