It is now widely accepted that knowledge can be acquired from networks by clustering their vertices according to connection profiles. Many methods have been proposed and in this paper we concentrate on the Stochastic Block Model (SBM). The clustering of vertices and the estimation of SBM model parameters have been subject to previous work and numerous(More)
Networks are used in many scientific fields such as biology, social science, and information technology. They aim at modelling, with edges, the way objects of interest, represented by vertices, are related to each other. Looking for clusters of vertices, also called communities or modules, has appeared to be a powerful approach for capturing the underlying(More)
In the last two decades many random graph models have been proposed to extract knowledge from networks. Most of them look for communities or, more generally, clusters of vertices with homogeneous connection profiles. While the first models focused on networks with binary edges only, extensions now allow to deal with valued networks. Recently, new models(More)
The stochastic block model (SBM) [1] describes interactions between nodes of a network following a probabilistic approach. Nodes belong to hidden clusters and the probabilities of interactions only depend on these clusters. Interactions of time varying intensity are not taken into account. By partitioning the whole time horizon, in which interactions are(More)
