First Meeting 09/04/15

We had our first team meeting last Friday. After covering some logistics, we jumped into discussing some basics of what we will be researching. The main topic is community detection in complex networks. We are beginning with a broad question of looking at how and how much communities differ when formed with various algorithms and by using different metrics.

We are beginning our first week by reading multiple papers on existing research related to our topic. Here is a list of some papers that we are currently reading.

  • This is a lengthy survey paper that gives an overview of networks and community detection.
  • This paper discusses various metrics that can be used for graph clusters and evaluates the quality of these metrics with various algorithms.
  • This last paper provides a critique of modularity maximization.
