      By revisiting the preferential attachment (PA) mechanism for generating a classical scale-free network, we propose a class of novel preferential attachment similarity indices for predicting future links in evolving networks. Extensive experiments on 14 real-life networks show that these new indices can provide more accurate prediction than the traditional one. Due to the improved prediction accuracy and low computational complexity, these proposed preferential attachment indices can be helpful for providing both instructions for mining unknown links and new insights to understand the underlying mechanisms that drive the network evolution.

    • Refinement of the community detection performance by weighted relationship coupling


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The complexity of many community detection algorithms is usually an exponential function with the scale which hard to uncover community structure with high speed. Inspired by the ideas of the famous modularity optimization, in this paper, we proposed a proper weighting scheme utilizing a novel k-strength relationship whichnaturally represents the coupling distance between two nodes. Community structure detection using a generalized weighted modularity measure is refined based on the weighted k-strength matrix. We apply our algorithm on both the famous benchmark network and the real networks. Theoretical analysis and experiments show that the weighted algorithm can uncover communities fast and accurately and can be easily extended to large-scale real networks.
