Data Mining, Social Network Analysis, Evolving Networks


Work description

This project investigates the evolution in temporal social networks. In particular, we consider networks with high frequency of new arcs and nodes. The goal is to study ways of detecting events in this type of network. We intend to study dynamic forms of sampling, as well as forms of gradual forgetting of arcs. We will use databases of graphs of telephone calls and the social network Twitter to validate the algorithms.
