We present a general approach for analyzing structural parameters of a relational event graph within arbitrary query time intervals using colored range query data structures. Relational event graphs generally represent social network datasets, where each graph edge carries a timestamp. We provide data structures based on colored range searching to efficiently compute several graph parameters (e.g., density, neighborhood overlap, h-index).
