  • Breif introduction:

The most famous characteristics of the complex networks are “small-world phenomena” and “scale-free properties”. Further studies have revealed that many actual networks are highly inhomogeneous; they do not consist of an undifferentiated mass of nodes but have some subgroup structure. The main purposes of this project are to detect the community structure in Watts and Strogatz’s small-world network and Barabàsi’s scale-free network, and to compare these two standard complex networks from the point of view of the community structure.
