Identifying Community Structures from Network Data via Maximum Likelihood Methods

Jernej Copic / Matthew O. Jackson / Alan Kirman
Published Online: 2009-09-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1935-1704.1523

Networks of social and economic interactions are often influenced by unobserved structures among the nodes. Based on a simple model of how an unobserved community structure generates networks of interactions, we axiomatize a method of detecting the latent community structures from network data. The method is based on maximum likelihood estimation.

Keywords: networks; communities; community structures; maximum likelihood; social networks
