A Study on Community Overlapping Detection Algorithms in Social Networks

Eaint Mon Win, May Aye Khine

Abstract— Community detection is one of the most important research area wherein invention and growth of social networks. Community is a set of members densely connected within a group and sparely connected with the other groups. In social networks, the singular characteristic of communities is multi membership of a node resulting in overlapping communities. Another relevant feature of social networks is the possibility to evolve over time. In recent years, many researchers have worked on various methods that can efficiently unveil overlapped structure on dynamic network. This paper reviews the previous studies done on the problem of overlapping community detection algorithms. Moreover, some approaches for dynamic network that change from time to time are also described.

Index Terms— overlapping community, community detection, dynamic, social network
