Slide 2 Random Intersection Model * (n,m,p) Introduced: Karoński, Scheinerman, Singer- Cohen `99 Bipartite graph models collaboration – Activity nodes – Participant nodes Random Intersection Graph * (n,m,p) – Bipartite edges arise independently with constant probability – Unipartite projection onto participant nodes m : number of “movies” n : number of “actors” Unipartite projection Collaboration graph: who’s worked with whom Bipartite graph
Slide 3 Subgraph H [X H ] Erdős–Rényi Random Intersection 60-cycle Expected sugbraph count vs. E-R Erdős–Rényi n = 1000 p ER = Random Intersection n = 1000 m = 100 p = Yields p ER = 0.002
Slide 4 RC model ( m = 10,000)RC model ( m = 1000)RC model ( m = 100)RC model ( m = 10)RC model ( m = 2) RC model ( m = 1) Erdős–Rényi vs. RI Model as m → ∞ Erdős–Rényi (n,p ER ) model m = “number of movies” p ER = (edge probability) RI * (N,M,p)
Slide 5 Theorem [Ferry, Mifflin]. For a fixed expected number of edges p ER, and any graph G with n vertices, the probability of G being generated by the Random Intersection model approaches the probability of G being generated by the Erdős–Rényi model as m → ∞. Formula for rate of convergence: [(Independently) Fill, Scheinerman, Singer-Cohen `00] With m=n α, α>6, total variation distance for probability of G goes to zero as n → ∞. Erdős–Rényi vs. RI Model as m → ∞
Slide 6 Idea: Let m → ∞ and fix the expected number of movies per actor at constant μ=pm. This allows simplified asymptotic probabilities for random intersection graphs on a fixed number of nodes. Probability formulas are from edge clique covers Most probable graphs have block-complete structure Least probable graphs have connections to Turán-type extremal graphs RI model in the constant-μ limit
Slide 7 Edge clique covers Unipartite projection corresponds to an edge clique cover The projection-induced cover encodes collaboration structure Hidden collaboration perspective: Given * (n,m,p) = G, we can infer which clique covers are most likely This reveals the most likely hidden collaboration structure that produced G Unipartite projection
“size” of clique cover “weight” of , G a i = #least-wt covers of size i Covering polynomial of G wt=4, s=6 Projection wt=4, s=7 (2 ways) wt=5 (not least-weight) Thus wt(G) = 4 and s(G; x) = x 6 + 2x 7. Slide 8
Slide 9 Theorem [Lo]. Let n be fixed and let G be a fixed graph on n vertices. In the constant- limit, Lower weight graphs are more likely If G has a lower weight supergraph H, G is more likely to appear as a subgraph of H than as an induced graph Theorem. Let n be fixed and let G be a fixed graph on n non-isolated vertices with j cut-vertices. In the constant- limit, where the b i are block degrees of the cut-vertices of G, and is the b th Touchard polynomial. Fixed graphs in the constant-μ limit
Slide 10 Example subgraph probability Let H be rank(H) = 7 n(H)=8 2 cut-vertices; 4 blocks b 1 = 3b 2 = 2 Stirling numbers count partitions of b i blocks into s “movies” Block-cutpoint tree of H
Slide 11 Block-cutpoint tree → Least-weight supergraphs 1.Select an unvisited cut-vertex. 2.Partition incident blocks, merge, and make block-complete. 3.Update block-cutpoint tree. 4.Repeat 1 until all original cut-vertices are visited.
Slide 12 An extremal graph weight conjecture Conjecture [Lo]. Let G have n vertices. Then with equality iff there exists a bipartition V(G)= such that: A= B= The complete (A,B)-bipartite graph is a subgraph of G Either A or B is an independent set.
Slide 13 Related simpler questions Conjecture. Every K 4 -free graph G on n vertices and edges has at least m edge-disjoint K 3 ’s. Theorem [Gy ő ri]. True for G with chromatic number at most 3. Theorem. True when G is K 4 -free and where k≤n 2 /84+O(1).
