Mutual information to assess structural properties in dynamic networks

ego networks

Hoje é o dia da apresentação de um dos artigos em Warwick na conferência ECCS09 (European Conference of Complex Systems). Aqui fica o abstract e mais logo, quando regressar ao hotel tento colocar online o power point da apresentação. Which me luck!

Abstract: This article proposes applying the variation of information measure from Information Theory to evaluate macro-level properties characterising dynamic networks. This measure is used to evaluate different clusters given by the agglomerative hierarchical clustering algorithm of Clauset, Newman and Moore (2004), concerning a case study of the multi-agent based network model of a university email service. The variation of information measure is shown to be capable of assessing the outcome of simulating the dynamics of networks, in terms of its macro-level properties.
