@article{Benson2016HigherorderOO, title={Higher-order organization of complex networks}, author={Austin R. Benson and David F. Gleich and Jure Leskovec}, journal={Science}, year={2016}, volume={353}, pages={163 - 166} }

Resolving a network of hubs Graphs are a pervasive tool for modeling and analyzing network data throughout the sciences. Benson et al. developed an algorithmic framework for studying how complex networks are organized by higher-order connectivity patterns (see the Perspective by Pržulj and Malod-Dognin). Motifs in transportation networks reveal hubs and geographical elements not readily achievable by other methods. A motif previously suggested as important for neuronal networks is part of a… Expand

Community Detection in Complex Networks via Clique Conductance

- Computer Science, Medicine
- Scientific Reports
- 2018

This paper develops a novel community-detection method based on cliques, i.e., local complete subnetworks, and shows that the proposed method is guaranteed to detect near-optimal clusters in the bipartition case. Expand

Gauss’s law for networks directly reveals community boundaries

- Medicine, Computer Science
- Scientific Reports
- 2018

It is shown that identifying community boundaries rather than communities results in a more accurate decomposition of the network into informative components, which forms the basis of the “Laplacian modularity” quality function for community detection that is applicable to general network types.

Higher-order clustering in networks

- Computer Science, Physics
- Physical review. E
- 2018

Higher-order clustering coefficients are introduced that measure the closure probability of higher-order network cliques and provide a more comprehensive view of how the edges of complex networks cluster. Expand

Motif-Preserving Dynamic Local Graph Cut

- Computer Science
- 2018 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (Big Data)
- 2018

This paper proposes a local graph clustering framework that captures structure-rich subgraphs, taking into consideration the information of high-order structures in temporal networks, and is able to model various user-defined temporal network structures and find clusters with minimum conductance in a polylogarithmic time complexity.

HiSCF: leveraging higher-order structures for clustering analysis in biological networks

- Computer Science, Medicine
- Bioinform.
- 2021

The promising performance of HiSCF demonstrates that the consideration of higher-order network motifs gains new insight into the analysis of biological networks, such as the identification of overlapping protein complexes and the inference of new signaling pathways, and also reveals the rich higher- order organizational structures presented in biological networks.

The Emergence of Informative Higher Scales in Complex Networks

- Physics, Computer Science
- Complex.

This work derives from first principles a measure known as effective information and describes its behavior in common network models, showing how subgraphs of nodes can be grouped into macro-nodes, reducing the size of a network while increasing its effective information. Expand

Higher-Order Clustering for Heterogeneous Networks via Typed Motifs

Higher-order connectivity patterns such as small induced subgraphs called graphlets (network motifs) are vital to understand the important components (modules/functional units) governing the… Expand

COMICS: a community property-based triangle motif clustering scheme

- Medicine, Computer Science

Results show that the community property-based triangle motif clustering scheme (COMICS) outperforms others in both runtime and accuracy, and the triangle motif structures can bridge network structures and statistical data in the academic collaboration area. Expand

Simplicial closure and higher-order link prediction

- Computer Science, Medicine
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
- 2018

It is shown that there is a rich variety of structure in the authors' datasets but datasets from the same system types have consistent patterns of higher-order structure, and it is found that tie strength and edge density are competing positive indicators ofhigher-order organization. Expand

This paper employs approximation algorithms for the graph-partitioning problem to characterize as a function of size the statistical and structural properties of partitions of graphs that could plausibly be interpreted as communities, and defines the network community profile plot, which characterizes the "best" possible community—according to the conductance measure—over a wide range of size scales.
