Evidential community detection based on density peaks

09/28/2018 ∙ by Kuang Zhou, et al. ∙ 0

Credal partitions in the framework of belief functions can give us a better understanding of the analyzed data set. In order to find credal community structure in graph data sets, in this paper, we propose a novel evidential community detection algorithm based on density peaks (EDPC). Two new metrics, the local density ρ and the minimum dissimi-larity δ, are first defined for each node in the graph. Then the nodes with both higher ρ and δ values are identified as community centers. Finally, the remaing nodes are assigned with corresponding community labels through a simple two-step evidential label propagation strategy. The membership of each node is described in the form of basic belief assignments , which can well express the uncertainty included in the community structure of the graph. The experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method on real-world networks.
