Network graph analysis is a hot topic in social media, fraud detection, and academia. In many applications, networked individuals end up on one large "clump", making further analysis nearly impossible. Community detection is one way to break a huge graph into small meaningful groups for real-world analyses.
We will introduce various structural definitions of graph communities and give an overview of algorithms that capture them. We'll conclude the presentation with a review of performance metrics that compare detected communities with ground-truth information.
