dpclus(g_original: object, weights: str = None, d_threshold: float = 0.9, cp_threshold: float = 0.5, overlap: bool = True) → cdlib.classes.node_clustering.NodeClustering

DPClus projects weights onto an unweighted graph using a common neighbors approach. In DPClus, the weight of an edge (u, v) is defined as the number of common neighbors between u and v. Similarly, the weight of a vertex is its weighted degree – the sum of all edges connected to the vertex-

DPClus does not natively generate overlapping clusters but does allow for overlapping cluster nodes to be added in a post-processing step.

Supported Graph Types

Undirected Directed Weighted
Yes No Yes
  • g_original – a networkx/igraph object
  • weights – label used for the edge weights. Default, None.
  • d_threshold – cluster density threshold, default 0.9
  • cp_threshold – cluster property threshold, default 0.5
  • overlap – wheter to output overlapping or crisp communities. Default, True.
