We present succinct distance oracles for (unweighted) interval graphs and related classes of graphs, using a novel succinct data structure for ordinal trees that supports the mapping between preorder (i.e., depth-first) ranks and level-order (breadth-first) ranks of nodes in constant time.
Our distance oracles for interval graphs also support navigation queries — testing adjacency, computing node degrees, neighborhoods, and shortest paths — all in optimal time. Our technique also yields optimal distance oracles for proper interval graphs (unit-interval graphs) and circular-arc graphs. Our tree data structure supports all operations provided by different approaches in previous work, as well as mapping to and from level-order ranks and retrieving the last (first) internal node before (after) a given node in a level-order traversal, all in constant time.
