DMNC - Density of Maximum Neighborhood Component


For a node v, let N be the node number and E be the edge number of MNC(v), respectively. The score of node v, DMNC(v), is defined to be E/Nϵ for some 1≤ϵ≤2. We may assume that the MNC has a strong community structure, such as a clique percolation in a random network. In our system, ϵ is set to be 1.7, which is close to 1.67, the ϵ-value as we assume the neighborhood sub-network has a four-community. [LIN, C.-Y. 2008]
