Setup

$ git clone git@github.com:GemsLab/LinkWaldo.git

Generating train/test splits

The data/ directory contains a script train_test.py that can generate a train graph and test set for both static and temporal settings.

The training graph is created in the directory data/static/train/ or data/temporal/train depending on the setting.

Similarly, the test set goes to the directory data/static/test/ or data/temporal/test.

The script has already been run on the yeast dataset for five seeds.

Example usage:

python train_test.py -G yeast -m static -test 20 --seed 0

Arguments:

--graph / -G {graph_name} The name of the graph to use.

--method / -m (static/temporal) Whether the graph is static or temporal. Temporal graphs must have timestamps in the edgelist.

--percent_test / -test [0, 100] (Optional; Default = 20) Percent of edges to remove for testing. 20 was used in all experiments in the paper.

--seed / -s {seed} The random seed. This allows multiple networks to be generated for evaluating variance in performance. For temporal networks, the edges removed will always be the same, but the file names will be different (cf. Sec. V.B).

Requirements

  • Python 3
  • numpy

Data

data/static/ contains the static graphs while data/temporal/ contains the temporal graphs (Table II).

Subdirectories test/ and train/ within each contain the graphs after removing test edges (see "Generating train/test splits secton" above).

Example usage (from src/ dir)

Run on Yeast dataset with MG grouping:

python main.py -G yeast -sm static -em netmf1 -k 10000

Run on Yeast dataset with DG grouping:

python main.py -G yeast -sm static -em netmf1 -k 10000 -SG False -CG False --bailout_tol 0.0

NMF+BAG baseline

python main.py -G yeast -m nmf+bag -k 10000 -bag_epsilon 1.0

Arguments

--graph / -G {graph_name} (Required) The graph on which to run.

--k / -k {budget} (Optional; Default = 10M) The budget (how many pairs to output).

--method / -m {method} (Optional; Default = 'LinkWaldo') Specifies the method (one of 'LinkWaldo', 'lapm', 'cn', 'js', 'aa', 'nmf+bag').

--embedding_method {the proximity method to use} (Optional; Default = 'netmf2') Specifies the proximity method to use within equivalence classes (one of 'netmf1', 'netmf2', 'bine', 'aa').

--DG / -DG {True/False} (Optional; Default = True) Whether or not to use Degree Grouping (Sec. IV.A).

--SG / -SG {True/False} (Optional; Default = True) Whether or not to use Structural Grouping (Sec. IV.A).

--CG / -CG {True/False} (Optional; Default = True) Whether or not to use Community Grouping (Sec. IV.A).

--exact_search_tolerance / -tol (Optional; Default = 25M) The tolerance for exactly vs. approximately searching equivlance classes (Sec. IV.C and V.D).

--bailout_tol / -b_tol (Optional; Default = 0.5) (Sec. IV.C and V.D)

--sampling_method / -sm {'static'/'temporal'} (Optional; Default = 'static') Whether the graph is temporal or static (Table II).

--num_groups / -num_groups {int} (Optional; Default = 25) The number of groups to use for a grouping (Sec. V.D).

--num_groups_alt / -num_groups_alt {int} (Optional; Default = 5) If there are multiple groupings, this allows non-DG groupings to use a different number of groups (Sec. V.D).

--percent_test / -test {float} (Optional; Default = 20.0) The percentage of the graph used for evalution (see "Generating train/test splits secton" above).

--seed / -s {int} (Optional; Default = 0) The seed to run on (see "Generating train/test splits secton" above).

--bipartite / -bip {True/False} (Optional; Default = False) Whether or not the graph is bipartite.

--output_override / -oo {None or file_path} (Optional; Default = None) If None, the output will go to its default location (data/{sample_method}/), otherwise it will go to the path specified by this parameter.

--bag_epsilon / -bag_epsilon {float} (Optional; Default = 1.0) The epsilon parameter for the NMF+Bag baseline (Sec. V.B).

--skip_output / -skip_output {True/False} (Optional; Default = False) If True, not output files will be created.

--force_emb / force_emb {True / False} (Optional; Default = False) If True, then even if the embeddings have already been generated for the input graph, they will be re-generated.
