All rights Reserved FIGURE 5.5 Chapter5 Les Misérables character co-appearance network data sorted by edge weight from largest to smallest and visualized with the Harel-Koren Fast Multiscale layout and some hand tuning. Edge width (1 to 4) and opacity (10 to 100) both use data in the Edge Weight column using the logarithmic mapping option. Edges are a different color (maroon) to keep the vertices identifiable.

All rights Reserved FIGURE 5.6 Chapter5 The Les Misérables network mapping Degree to vertex size (1.5 to 5), Betweenness Centrality to vertex opacity (50 to 100), and Clustering Coefficient to tooltip. Characters with signifi cant metrics are labeled. Edge width (1 to 4) and edge opacity (10 to 60) are based on a logarithmic mapping of edge weight.
  8. 8. 8Copyright © 2011, Elsevier Inc. All rights Reserved FIGURE 5.7 Chapter5 Les Misérables network mapping Degree to the X axis (and size) and Betweenness Centrality to the Y axis (and opacity). Axes are shown. Edges are hidden. The scale is modified to account for Valjean’s position as an outlier.
