Efficient Centrality Monitoring for Time-Evolving Graphs [chapter]

Yasuhiro Fujiwara, Makoto Onizuka, Masaru Kitsuregawa
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Sniper is based on two ideas: (1) It computes approximate centrality by reducing the original graph size while guaranteeing the answer exactness, and (2) It terminates unnecessary distance computations  ...  Previous approaches to this problem find the lowest centrality nodes efficiently at the expense of exactness.  ...  For directed graphs, we apply Definition 1 for each direction to handle directed edges of approximate graphs.  ...

Fast Exact and Approximate Computation of Betweenness Centrality in Social Networks [chapter]

Miriam Baglioni, Filippo Geraci, Marco Pellegrini, Ernesto Lastres
2014 Lecture Notes in Social Networks  
Social networks are naturally represented as graphs, consequently graph theory and efficient graph algorithms play an important role in social network analysis.  ...  This means that, in general, for fairly large networks the computation of this index based on a direct application of its definition becomes impractical, having complexity O(n 3 ), for a graph with n nodes  ...  We also give a fast sampling-based algorithm that computes an approximation of the betweenness centrality values of the residual network while returns the exact value for the tree-nodes.  ...

An Efficient Heuristic for Betweenness-Ordering [article]

Rishi Ranjan Singh, Shubham Chaudhary, Manas Agarwal

In this paper, we propose an efficient heuristic to determine the betweenness-ordering of k vertices (where k is very less than the total number of vertices) without computing their exact betweenness indices  ...  Betweenness centrality comes as a handy tool to analyze such systems, but betweenness computation is a daunting task in large size networks.  ...  Iyengar and the Malgudi team at IIT Ropar for their comments to improve the presentation of the paper.  ...

2008 2008 Proceedings of the Tenth Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments (ALENEX)  
Betweenness has been used in diverse applications, e.g., social network analysis or route planning.

In particular, we also get good approximations for the betweenness of unimportant nodes. 90  ...  We would like to thank Reinhard Bauer, Ulrik Brandes, Daniel Delling and Dorothea Wagner for interesting discussions. Several anonymous reviewers provided valuable suggestions.  ...
