class IsolatedInterpartitionExpansion : public NetworKit::LocalPartitionEvaluation

Isolated inter-partition expansion is a measure for how well a partition (communtiy/cluster) is separated from the rest of the graph.

The expansion of a partition is defined as the weight of the cut divided by number of nodes in the partition or in the rest of the graph, whatever is smaller. Small values thus indicate that the cut is small compared to the size of the smaller of the separated parts. For the whole partitions usually the maximum or the unweighted average is used. Note that expansion values can be larger than 1.

Public Functions

virtual void run() override

Execute the algorithm. The algorithm is not parallel.

inline virtual bool isSmallBetter() const override

true - smaller values are better than larger values.

LocalPartitionEvaluation(const Graph &G, const Partition &P)

Initialize the partition evaluation method.

  • G – The graph on which the evaluation shall be performed

  • P – The partition that shall be evaluated.
