Community Detection In Large Networks
Graphs are used to represent various large and complex networks in scientific applications. In order to understand the structure of these graphs, it is useful to treat a set of nodes with similar characteristics as one community and analyze the community's behavior as a whole. Finding all such communities within the graph is the object of community detection. In our research, we compare dozens of existing community detection methods and develop a new class of algorithms for finding communities.
