We define new account features, based on the ratio between the numbers of sent and received emails and on the distribution of emails received from different(More)
—We present NECTAR, a community detection algorithm that generalizes Louvain method's local search heuristic for overlapping community structures. NECTAR chooses dynamically which objective function to optimize based on the network on which it is invoked. Our experimental evaluation on both synthetic benchmark graphs and real-world networks, based on(More)
