Abstract

Community detection is one of the most topics that are covered by social network analysis researchers. Early works focused mainly on partitioning networks into several global communities before they target communities evolution over time. The main drawback of such approach is the difficulty to obtain the entire network on which we may process a set of algorithms to track evolution. As a result, many researchers focused on detecting and tracking local dynamic communities.
