Community detection in multiplex networks: A seed-centric approach

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • Multiplex network is an emergent model that has been lately proposed in order to cope with the complexity of real-world networks. A multiplex network is defined as a multi-layer interconnected graph. Each layer contains the same set of nodes but interconnected by different types of links. This rich representation model requires to redefine most of the existing network analysis algorithms. In this paper we focus on the central problem of community detection. Most of existing approaches consist on transforming the problem, in a way or another, to the classical setting of community detection in a monoplex network. In this work, we propose a new approach that consists on adapting a seed-centric algorithm to the multiplex case. The first experiments on heterogeneous bibliographical networks show the relevance of the approach compared to the existing algorithms.
