Description:
Community structure is common in many large complex networks, especially social networks, the Internet, networks of organisations, and biological networks. Detecting community structure is a difficult task and there is no single algorithm that is suitable for every context. Several datasets of large complex networks are available, and recent interest in large online social networks has spawned several new algorithms for detecting community structure. Many methods are expanded from fundamental clique-based algorithms, while others use more sophisticated processes. Comparisons of different methods in different contexts (such as the size or density of a network) is still widely avoided and is an important gap in network science.
