# The Weisfeiler-Leman dimension of distance-hereditary graphs

A graph is said to be distance-hereditary if the distance function in every connected induced subgraph is the same as in the graph itself. We prove that the ordinary Weisfeiler-Leman algorithm correctly tests the isomorphism of any two graphs if one of them is distance-hereditary; more precisely, the Weisfeiler-Leman dimension of the class of finite distance-hereditary graphs is equal to $2$... The previously best known upper bound for the dimension was $7$. read more
