We present a general methodology using mathematical optimization to identify overlapping communities in complex networks by maximizing aspiration criteria based on extensions of the Newman and Girvan modularity function. We provide mathematical programming formulations both for a new proposed modularity function and for the extended modularity function by Zhang et al. (2007) to find optimal overlapping communities for small to medium size networks. We also develop a heuristic algorithm for the new proposed modularity function valid for large networks. Experimental results indicate, on the one hand, that optimizing the extended modularity function proposed by Zhang et al. (2007) may produce senseless communities and on the other hand, our results show that the new modularity function is eficient at detecting good clusterings with overlapping.

    Visit Alhambra

    Tomorrow, Thursday, we will visit the Alhambra. 1. At 7:00 p.m., buses will start leaving from the door of the Hotel Granada Center (in front of the door of the Faculty of Sciences) 2. Upon arrival, groups with guides will be organized. 3. There will be groups in English language. These groups will wait at the destination until the arrival of all buses. 4. After the visit to the Alhambra we will walk to the Carmen de los Mártires to have a cocktail. 5. On the way back, we can go back by bus, which will leave from the same place where they left us at the Alhambra. 6. Although the way to the Alhambra by bus seems long, it really is close to the city. We invite you, whoever wishes, to go down for a pleasant walk. 7. Do not forget to take your Alhambra ticket and your identity card or passport. The document must be the same whose number matches the ticket number you have.
