Inductive computations on graphs defined by clique-width expressions

Labelling problems for graphs consist in building distributed data structures, making it possible to check a given graph property or to compute a given function, the arguments of which are vertices. For an inductively computable function $D$, if $G$ is a graph with $n$ vertices and of clique-width at most $k$, where $k$ is fixed, we can associate with each vertex $x$ of $G$ a piece of information (bit sequence) $\mathrm{lab}\left(x\right)$ of length $O\left({log}^{2}\left(n\right)\right)$ such that we can compute $D$ in constant time, using only the labels of its arguments. The preprocessing can be done in time $O\left(h.n\right)$ where $h$ is the height of the syntactic tree of $G$. We perform an inductive computation, without using the tools of monadic second order logic. This enables us to give an explicit labelling scheme and to avoid constants of exponential size.
