# Finding Subgraphs with Maximum Total Density and Limited Overlap in Weighted Hypergraphs

ACM TRANSACTIONS ON KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY FROM DATA（2024）

摘要

Finding dense subgraphs in large (hyper)graphs is a key primitive in a variety of real-world application domains, encompassing social network analytics, event detection, biology, and finance. In most such applications, one typically aims at finding several (possibly overlapping) dense subgraphs, which might correspond to communities in social networks or interesting events. While a large amount of work is devoted to finding a single densest subgraph, perhaps surprisingly, the problem of finding several dense subgraphs in weighted hypergraphs with limited overlap has not been studied in a principled way, to the best of our knowledge. In this work, we define and study a natural generalization of the densest subgraph problem in weighted hypergraphs, where the main goal is to find at most k subgraphs with maximum total aggregate density, while satisfying an upper bound on the pairwise weighted Jaccard coefficient, i.e., the ratio of weights of intersection divided by weights of union on two nodes sets of the subgraphs. After showing that such a problem is NP-Hard, we devise an efficient algorithm that comes with provable guarantees in some cases of interest, as well as, an efficient practical heuristic. Our extensive evaluation on large real-world hypergraphs confirms the efficiency and effectiveness of our algorithms.
