A new approach to role and position detection in networks
2016 (English)In: SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS AND MINING, ISSN 1869-5450, Vol. 6, no 1, UNSP 39Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We rethink and extend the concepts of position and role in a network, basing them on various well-known measures that were not previously associated with these concepts, such as geodesic distance and modularity. The effectiveness of our new role and position detection algorithms is evaluated both qualitatively and quantitatively, on synthetic and real data, showing that we can identify new types of meaningful patterns in networks.
