1 Community Detection Laks V.S. Lakshmanan (based on Girvan & Newman. Finding and evaluating community structure in networks. Physical Review E 69, (2004). M. E. J. Newman. Fast algorithm for detecting community structure in networks. Physical Review E 69, (2004).

2 The Problem Can we partition the network into groups s.t. the inter-group edges are sparse while the intra-group edges are dense? Why is it interesting/useful? ◦ Understanding comm. structure – means to understanding n/w structure. ◦ Graph partitioning – similar problem; graph of processes, edges=communication; assign sub- graphs to processors to minimize inter-processor comm. & balance processor load. (NP-hard in general.) ◦ Diff. w/ graph partitioning.

3 An Example with Three Communities

4 A Hierarchical Clustering Approach

5 Community detection via hierarchical clustering Compute all pairwise node similarities for every edge present. Repeatedly add edges with greatest similarity.  leads to a tree (called dendrogram). A slice throguh the dendogram represents a clustering or comm. structure.

6 Dendrogram example

7 Limitations of HC approach “Misplaces” nodes in the periphery. E.g.: Which community should 5 belong to?  Alternative approach based on “edge betweenness”

8 Key Intuition An inter-comm. edge has a higher “betweenness” compared to an intra- comm. edge, i.e., more paths between node pairs pass through it. Start with G. Repeatedly remove edges with highest betweenness until. Communities = resulting components.

9 Basic Algorithm repeat { ◦ Calculate betweenness of all edges; ◦ Remove one with highest betweenness, breaking ties arbitrarily; } Until no edges left. Remarks: ◦ Which betweenness score? ◦ Calculate upfront and reuse or recalculate? ◦ Can we incrementally recalculate after each edge removal? ◦ Related algorithms for node betweenness by Newman and Brandes.

10 A Real Example (Zachary’s Karate Club) With recalculation of betweenness. Without recalculation of betweenness.

11 Scalability Issues

12 Computing edge betweenness An Example b a d c f e g Breadth-first search – means for doing many things. Compute #geodesics from every node to g.

13 Computing edge betweenness An Example b a d c f e g Breadth-first search – means for doing many things. d=0 w=1

14 Computing edge betweenness An Example b a d c f e g Breadth-first search – means for doing many things. d=0 w=1 d=1 w=1 d=1 w=1

20 EB Computation summary

21 EB Computation summary (contd.)

22 EB computation – complexity analysis

23 On scaling up CD algorithm Point to ponder!

24 Closing Remarks 1/2 Newman also proposed other bases for defining edge betweenness. Electrical current flow through the edge where every edge is viewed as unit resistance and we consider all source-sink pairs. Based on random walks. Both less effective and more expensive than geodesics (see paper for details). What about directed and weighted cases?

25 Closing Remarks 2/2 Goodness metric of community division. Helpful when we don’t know the ground truth. Q = ∑ i (e ii – a i 2 ), where E kxk = matrix of community division: e ij = fraction of edges linking comm. i to comm. j; a i = ∑ j e ij. Q measures fraction of intra-comm. edges over what is expected by chance (assuming uniform distribution). See paper for details of experimental results. Turns out study of influence/information propagation can suggest new ways of detecting communities: will revisit this issue after we study influence propagation.
