Network Comparison26 Oct 2019 14:13
Yet Another Inadequate Placeholder.
Given two networks, can we tell whether they came from the same source distribution? If not, characterize how the sources differ.
Relatedly: change-point problems for sequences of networks.
- Recommended (painfully inadequate):
- Giuseppe Jurman, Samantha Riccadonna, Roberto Visintainer, Cesare Furlanello, "Biological network comparison via Ipsen-Mikhailov distance", arxiv:1109.0220 [The metric, to be honest, is not especially compelling, but it's nice to see this done at all.]
- Danai Koutra, Joshua T. Vogelstein, Christos Faloutsos, "DELTACON: A Principled Massive-Graph Similarity Function", arxiv:1304.4657 ["Principled" = compute page-rank affinity vectors, look at average distances. No modeling.]
