Network Comparison Statistics based on Subgraph counts and their potential application.
While the number of network comparison methods is increasing, benchmarking of these methods is still in its infancy. The lack of
understanding of complex dependencies among network characteristics makes it difficult to fully understand the meaning of the different
network comparison methodologies and the relations between them. In this talk I will describe some network comparison methods based on
subgraph counts, and I’ll provide some intuition about potential confounding factors, and different settings in which one comparison
statistic may be more useful than the others. Further to this introduction I will show different
applications where these subgraph counts and network comparison statistics can provide a beneficial tool to obtain further insights
in different application areas such as urban planning, finance and biology.
