Fast unfolding of communities in large networks
We propose a simple method to extract the community structure of large networks. Our method is a heuristic method that is based on modularity optimization. It is shown to outperform all other knownExpand

Hierarchical Modularity in Human Brain Functional Networks
The idea that complex systems have a hierarchical modular organization originated in the early 1960s and has recently attracted fresh support from quantitative studies of large scale, real-lifeExpand

In this paper, we use a partition of the links of a network in order to uncover its community structure. This approach allows for communities to overlap at nodes so that nodes may be in more than oneExpand

Fast unfolding of community hierarchies in large networks
Introduction The typical size of large networks such as social network services, mobile phone networks or the web now counts in millions when not billions of nodes and these scales demand new methodsExpand

Modular and Hierarchically Modular Organization of Brain Networks
Brain networks are increasingly understood as one of a large class of information processing systems that share important organizational principles in common, including the property of a modularExpand

Socio-Spatial Properties of Online Location-Based Social Networks
The spatial structure of large-scale online social networks has been largely unaccessible due to the lack of available and accurate data about people’s location. However, with the recent surgingExpand

A Tale of Many Cities: Universal Patterns in Human Urban Mobility
The advent of geographic online social networks such as Foursquare, where users voluntarily signal their current location, opens the door to powerful studies on human movement. In particular the fineExpand

Laplacian Dynamics and Multiscale Modular Structure in Networks
Most methods proposed to uncover communities in complex networks rely on their structural properties. Here we introduce the stability of a network partition, a measure of its quality defined in termsExpand

Multirelational organization of large-scale social networks in an online world
The capacity to collect fingerprints of individuals in online media has revolutionized the way researchers explore human society. Social systems can be seen as a nonlinear superposition of aExpand

Geographical dispersal of mobile communication networks
In this paper, we analyze statistical properties of a communication network constructed from the records of a mobile phone company. The network consists of 2.5 million customers that have placed 810Expand
