Cell phones, communities, and complex networks
Researchers today are surrounded by massive data. From particle accelerators and
digitized libraries to high-throughput biological assays and online social networks, the
quantities of available data are enabling revolutionary discoveries across
science. Networks are a way to understand these complex systems. One feature common
to many networks is that of modular or community structure: densely interconnected
groups that often fulfill key structural of functional roles in the system. Understanding
these communities is challenging, yet offers hope for meaningful simplifications of
massive data. We introduce a new approach to the community problem and apply it to a
