linkcomm provides tools for the generation, visualization, and analysis of link communities in networks of arbitrary size and type.
Link communities reveal the nested and overlapping structure in networks, and uncover the key nodes that form connections to multiple communities.
linkcomm provides tools for generating, visualizing, and analysing link communities in networks of arbitrary size and type.
For a more detailed overview of how to use the package:
vignette(topic = "linkcomm", package = "linkcomm")
To run an interactive demonstration of
linkcomm within R:

## Generate graph and extract link communities. g <- swiss[,3:4] lc <- getLinkCommunities(g) ## Plot a graph layout of the link communities. plot(lc, type = "graph") ## Use a Spencer circle layout. plot(lc, type = "graph", layout = "spencer.circle") ## Calculate a community-based measure of node centrality. getCommunityCentrality(lc) ## Find nested communities. getAllNestedComm(lc) ## Uncover the relatedness between communities. getClusterRelatedness(lc)
