This paper presents a new approach to solving the problem of verification of graph transformation, by proposing a new static verification algorithm for the Core UnCAL, the query algebra for graph-structured databases proposed by Bunemann et al. Given a graph transformation annotated with schema information, our algorithm statically verifies that any graph satisfying the input schema is converted by the transformation to a graph satisfying the output schema. We tackle the problem by first reformulating the semantics of UnCAL into monadic second-order logic (MSO). The logic- based foundation allows to express the schema satisfaction of transformations as the validity of MSO formulas over graph structures. Then by exploiting the two established properties of UnCAL called bisimulation-genericity and compactness, we reduce the problem to the validity of MSO over trees, which has a sound and complete decision procedure. The algorithm has been efficiently implemented; all the graph transformations in this paper and the system web page can be verified within several seconds.
