Community Discovery for Complex Networks

Given: a network, especially a large one, directed or not, weighted or not.

Desired: a sensible decomposition of the graph into sub-graphs, wherein the nodes in each sub-graph have more to do with each other than with outsiders, i.e., form communities.

This is also called “module detection“.
