Entropy and the Complexity of Graphs Revisited

  title={Entropy and the Complexity of Graphs Revisited},
  author={Abbe Mowshowitz and Matthias Dehmer},
This paper presents a taxonomy and overview of approaches to the measurement of graph and network complexity. The taxonomy distinguishes between deterministic (e.g., Kolmogorov complexity) and probabilistic approaches with a view to placing entropy-based probabilistic measurement in context. Entropy-based measurement is the main focus of the paper. Relationships between the different entropy functions used to measure complexity are examined; and intrinsic (e.g., classical measures) and… CONTINUE READING
