Abstract:Dense subgraph detection is a fundamental building block for a variety of applications. Most of the existing methods aim to discover dense subgraphs within a single network, or within a multi-view network consisting of a common set of nodes. However, many real-world applications can be better modeled as multi-layered networks, where nodes and their dependencies vary across the different layers. Dense subgraph detection on such multi-layered networks can help reveal interesting patterns, but largely remains a daunting task. To this end, we propose a family of algorithms (DESTINE) to detect dense subgraphs on multi-layered networks. The key idea is based on cross-layer consistency among the dense subgraphs underlying the networks at different layers. With an optimization-based formulation, we develop the projected gradient descent algorithms that bear the following distinctive advantages. First (applicability), the model is suitable for the generally defined multi-layered networks without requirements for sharing the same set of nodes across layers or 1-on-1 cross-layer dependencies. Second (generality), our model can naturally handle various task settings, including dense subgraph detection in multi-layered bipartite scenarios and in query-specific scenarios. Third (scalability), DESTINE scales linearly w.r.t. the size of the input multi-layered networks. Extensive experiments demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed DESTINE algorithms in various scenarios.
