Weak ties, social network, small world network, detection
Computer Sciences | Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing
In a small world social network, strong and weak ties exist that define tightly clustered areas and isolated links between them. Granovetter provided an heuristic that strong links have a higher common neighbor count than weak ones. The problem of identifying weak links is the central focus of this paper. The proposed metric vett will be shown that within certain constraints of a (modified) small world network the accuracy of the proposed method is 100%.
