  18. 18. 2.2. Tensorial Representaon • Adjacency tensor for unweighted case: • Elements of adjacency tensor: – Auvαβ = Auvα1β1 … αdβd = 1 iff ((u,α), (v,β)) is an element of EM (else Auvαβ = 0) • Important note: ‘padding’ layers with empty nodes – One needs to disnguish between a node not present in a layer and nodes exisng but edges not present (use a supplementary tensor with labels for edges that could exist), as this is important for normalizaon in many quanes.
  19. 19. #FLCEGPE[6GPUQTYKVJF#URGEV • One can write a general (rank-­‐4) mullayer adjacency tensor M in terms of a tensor product between single-­‐layer adjacency tensors [C(l) in upper right] and canonical basis tensors [see lower right] • w: weights • E: canonical basis tensors • Weighted edge from node ni in layer h to node nj in layer k • Note: Einstein summaon convenon • Page 3 of De Domenico et al., PRX, 2013
  20. 20. /WNVKNKPGCT#NIGDTCCPF.CRNCEKCP6GPUQTU • Explored in several papers. Examples: – Supra-­‐Laplacian matrices: S. Gómez, A. Díaz-­‐Guilera, J. Gómez-­‐Gardeñes, C. J. Pérez-­‐Vicent, Y. Moreno, A. Arenas, Physical Review Le8ers, Vol. 110, 028701 (2013) – Mullayer Laplacian tensors: De Domenico et al, Physical Review X, 2013 – Spectral properes of mullayer Laplacians: A. Solé-­‐ Ribalta, M. De Domenico, N. E. Kouvaris, A. Díaz-­‐ Guilera, S. Gómez, A. Arenas, Physical Review E, Vol. 88, 032807 (2013) – Also see summary in the review arcle.
  21. 21. /WNVKNC[GT%QODKPCVQTKCN.CRNCEKCP • Mullayer combinatorial Laplacian: – First term: strength (i.e. weighted degree) tensor – A bit more on degree tensor later – Second term: mullayer adjacency tensor (recall) – U: tensor with all entries equal to 1 – E: canonical basis for tensors (recall) – δ: Kronecker delta

  24. 24. %NCUUKH[KPI/WNVKNC[GT0GVYQTMU • Special cases of mullayer networks include: mulplex networks, interdependent networks, networks of networks, node-­‐colored networks, edge-­‐colored mulgraphs, … • To obtain one of these special cases, we impose constraints on the general structure defined earlier. • See the review arcle for details.
  25. 25. %QPUVTCKPVU HTQOVJG6CDNG • 1. Node-­‐aligned (or fully interconnected): All layers contain all nodes. • 2. Layer disjoint: Each node exists in at most one layer. • 3. Equal size: Each layer has the same number of nodes (but they need not be the same ones). • 4. Diagonal coupling: Inter-­‐layer edges only can exist between nodes and their counterparts. • 5. Layer coupling: coupling between layers is independent of node identy – Note: special case of “diagonal coupling” • 6. Categorical coupling: diagonal couplings in which inter-­‐layer edges can be present between any pair of layers – Contrast: “ordinal” coupling for tensorial representaon of temporal networks • Example 1: Most –– but not all! –– “mul@plex networks” studied in the literature sasfy (1,3,4,5,6) and include d = 1 aspects. – Note: Many important situaons need (1,3) to be relaxed. (E.g. Some people have Facebook accounts but not Twi;er accounts.) • Example 2: The “networks of networks” that have been invesgated thus far sasfy (3) and have addional constraints (which can be relaxed).
  26. 26. The literature is messy. #makeitstop
  27. 27. #0QFG%QNQTGF0GVYQTM • Node-­‐colored network: also known as interconnected network, network of networks, etc. • (three alternative representations)
  31. 31. /WNVKRNGZ0GVYQTMU • Networks with multiple types of edges – Also known as multirelational networks, edge-­‐colored multigraphs, etc. • Many studies in practice use the same sets of nodes in each layer, but this isn’t required. – Challenge for tensorial representation: need to keep track of lack of presence of a tie versus a node not being present in a layer (relevant e.g. for normalization of multiplex clustering coefficients) • Question: When should you include inter-­‐ layer edges and when should you ignore them?
  32. 32. *[RGTITCRJU • Hyperedges generalize edges. A hyperedge can include any (nonzero) number of nodes. • Example: A k-­‐uniform hypergraph has cardinality k for each hyperedge (e.g. a folksonomy like Flickr). – One can represent a k-­‐uniform hypergraph using adjacency tensors, and there have been some studies of multiplex networks by mapping them into k-­‐uniform hypergraphs. – A nice paper: Michoel Nachtergaele, PRE, 2012 • Note that multilayer networks are still formulated for pairwise connections (but a more general type of pairwise connections than usual).
  33. 33. 1TFKPCN%QWRNKPIUCPF 6GORQTCN0GVYQTMU • Ordinal coupling: diagonal inter-­‐layer edges among consecutive layers (e.g. multilayer representation of a temporal network) • Categorical coupling: diagonal inter-­‐layer edges between all pairs of edges • Both can be present in a multilayer network, and both can be generalized
  34. 34. 1VJGT6[RGUQH /WNVKNC[GT0GVYQTMU GZCORNGU • k-­‐partite graphs – Bipartite networks are most commonly studied • Coupled-­‐cell networks – Associate a dynamical system with each node of a multigraph. Network structure through coupling terms. • Multilevel networks – Very popular in social statistics literature (upcoming special issue of Social Networks) – Each level is a layer – Think ‘hierarchical’ situations. Example: ‘micro-­‐ level’ social network of researchers and a ‘macro-­‐ level’ for a research-­‐exchange network between laboratories to which the researchers belong

  39. 39. 2TCEVKECNKVKGUCPF/GUUCIGU • Lots of reliable data on intra-­‐layer relations (i.e. the usual kind of edges) • It’s much more challenging to collect reliable data for inter-­‐layer edges. We need more data. – E.g. Transportation data should be a very good resource. Think about the amount of time to change gates during a layover in an airport. – E.g. Transition probabilities of a person using different social media (each medium is a layer). • Most empirical multilayer-­‐network studies thus far have tended to be multiplex networks. • Determining inter-­‐layer edges as a problem in trying to reconcile node identities across networks. (Can you figure out that a Twitter account and Facebook account belong to the same person?) – Major implications for privacy issues • Take-­‐home message: Be creative about how you construct multilayer networks and define layers!

  42. 42. #IITGICVKQPQH /WNVKNC[GT0GVYQTMU • Construct single-­‐layer (i.e. “monoplex”) networks and apply the usual tools. – Obtain edge weights as weighted average of connections in different layers. You get a different weighted network with a different weighting vector. • E.g. Zachary Karate Club – Information loss • Is there a way to do this to minimize information loss? • Important: Loss of “Markovianity” (a la temporal networks) – Processes that are Markovian on a multilayer network may yield non-­‐Markovian processes after aggregating the network
  43. 43. KCIPQUVKEU • Generalizations of the usual suspects – Degree/strength – Neighborhood • Which layers should you consider? – Centralities – Walks, paths, and distances – Transitivity and local clustering • Important note: Sometimes you want to define different values for different node-­‐layers (e.g. a vector of centralities for each entity) and sometimes you want a scalar. • Need to be able to consider different subsets of the layers • Need more genuinely multilayer diagnostics – It is important to go beyond “bigger and better” versions of the usual concepts.
  44. 44. GITGGUCPF0GKIJDQTJQQFU • Simplest way: Use aggregation and then measure degree, strength, and neighborhoods on a monoplex network obtained from aggregation. – Possibly only consider a subset of the layers • More sophisticated: Define a multi-­‐edge as a vector to track the information in each layer. With weighted multilayer networks, you can keep track of different weights in intra-­‐layer versus inter-­‐layer edges. • Towards multilayer measures: overlap multiplicity for a multiplex network can track how often an edge between entities i and j occurs in multiple layers
  45. 45. #FLCEGPE[6GPUQTYKVJF#URGEV TGECNNVJKUUNKFG • One can write a general (rank-­‐4) mullayer adjacency tensor M in terms of a tensor product between single-­‐layer adjacency tensors [C(l) in upper right] and canonical basis tensors [see lower right] • w: weights • E: canonical basis tensors • Weighted edge from node ni in layer h to node nj in layer k • Note: Einstein summaon convenon • Page 3 of De Domenico et al., PRX, 2013
  48. 48. 9CNMU2CVJUCPFKUVCPEGU • To define a walk (or a path) on a multilayer network, we need to consider the following: – Is changing layers considered to be a step? Is there a “cost” to changing layers? How do you measure this cost? • E.g. transportation networks vs social networks – Are intra-­‐layer steps different in different layers? • Example: labeled walks (i.e. compound relations) are walks in a multiplex network that are associated with a sequence of layer labels • Generalizing walks and paths is necessary to develop generalizations for ideas like clustering coefficients, transitivity, communicability, random walks, graph distance, connected components, betweenness centralities, motifs, etc. • Towards multilayer measures: Interdependence is the ratio of the number of shortest paths that traverse more than one layer to the number of shortest paths
  49. 49. %NWUVGTKPI%QGHHKEKGPVU CPF6TCPUKVKXKV[ • Our approach: Cozzo et al., 2013 – Use the idea of multilayer walks. Keep track of returning to entity i (possibly in a different layer from where we started) separately for 1 total layer, 2 total layers, 3 total layers (and in principle more). • Insight: Need different types of transitivity for different types of multiplex networks. – Example (again): transportation vs social networks – There are several different clustering coefficients for monoplex weighted networks, and this situation is even more extreme for multilayer networks.
  50. 50. 'ZCORNG%NWUVGTKPI%QGHHKEKGPV %QQGVCNCT:KX • Our perspective: multilayer walks, which can return to node i on different layers and traverse different numbers of layers!
  51. 51. %GPVTCNKV[/GCUWTGU • In studies of networks, people compute a crapload of centralities. • The common ones have been generalized in various ways for multilayer networks. – Again, one needs to ask whether you want a centrality for a node-­‐layer or for a given entity (across all layers or a subset of layers). • Eigenvector centralities and related ideas can be derived from random walks on multilayer networks. – Consider different spreading weights for different types of edges (e.g. intra-­‐layer vs inter-­‐layer edges; or different in different layers) • Betweenness centralities can be calculated for different generalizations of short paths. • A point of caution: “What the world needs now is another centrality measure.” – I.e. although they can be very useful, please don’t go too crazy with them.
  52. 52. +PVGTNC[GTKCIPQUVKEU • The community needs to construct genuinely multilayer diagnostics and go beyond ‘bigger and better’ versions of the concepts we know and (presumably) love. – Not very many yet • Correlations of network structures between layers – E.g. interlayer degree-­‐degree correlations (or any other diagnostic) • ! Interpreting communities as layers, quantities like assortativity can be construed as inter-­‐layer diagnostics • Interdependence is the ratio of the number of shortest paths that traverse more than one layer to the number of shortest paths
  53. 53. /QFGNUQH/WNVKRNGZ0GVYQTMU • Straightforward: Use your favorite monoplex model for intra-­‐layer connections and then construct inter-­‐layer edges in some way. – E.g. random-­‐graph models like Erdös-­‐Rényi, network growth models like preferential attachment • Correlated layers: Include correlations between properties in different intra-­‐layer networks in the construction of random-­‐graph ensembles. – E.g. Include intra-­‐layer degree-­‐degree correlations ρ in [-­‐1,1] • Exponential Random Graph Models (ERGMs) for multiplex networks – Used a lot for multilevel networks
  54. 54. /QFGNUQH/WNVKRNGZ0GVYQTMU • Statistical-­‐mechanical ensembles of multiplex networks • Generalize growth mechanisms like preferential attachment – Again, one can include inter-­‐layer correlations in designing a model • It would be good to go beyond “bigger and better” versions of the usual ideas. – Including simple inter-­‐layer correlations (especially between intra-­‐ layer degrees) has been the main approach so far.
  55. 55. /QFGNUQH +PVGTEQPPGEVGF0GVYQTMU • Straightforward: Construct different layers separately using your favorite model (or even one that you hate) and then add inter-­‐layer edges uniformly at random. • More sophisticated: Be more strategic in adding inter-­‐layer edges. • Some random-­‐graph modules with community structure can be useful, where we think of each community as a separate layer (i.e. as a separate network in a network of networks) – E.g. Melnik et al’s paper (Chaos, 2014) on random graphs with heterogeneous degree assortativity • The homophily is different in different layers and there is a mixing matrix for inter-­‐layer connections
  56. 56. %QOOWPKVKGUCPF1VJGT /GUQUECNG5VTWEVWTGU • Communities are dense sets of nodes in a network (typically relative to some null model). – One can use these ideas for multilayer networks (e.g. multislice modularity). • Interpreting communities as roadblocks to some dynamical process (e.g. starting from some initial condition), one can have such a process on a multilayer network—with different spreading rates in different types of edges—to algorithmically find communities in multilayer networks. • Most work thus far on multilayer representation of temporal networks. – One exception is recent work on “Kantian fractionalization” in international relations. • Challenge: Develop multilayer null models for community detection (different for ordinal vs. categorical coupling) • Blockmodels • Spectral clustering (e.g. Michoel Nachtergaele) • Note: Because I have done a lot of work in this area, I will go through a bit in some detail to help illustrate some general points that are also relevant in other studies of multilayer networks.

Analogous to structural vs funconal brain networks.
  70. 70. /GVJQFU$CUGFQP 6GPUQTGEQORQUKVKQP • Many different generalizations of singular value decomposition (SVD) to tensors – Every matrix has a unique SVD, but we have to relax this for tensors. – See Kolda and Bader, SIAM Review, 2009 – Tensor rank vs matrix rank: hard to determine that rank of tensors of order 3+ • Note: “rank” is also used as a synonym for “order” (see earlier). Here, “rank” is the generalization of matrix rank: the minimum number of column vectors needed to span the range of a matrix. The tensor rank is the minimum number of rank-­‐1 tensors with which one can express a tensor as a sum. The purpose of an SVD (and generalizations) is to find a low-­‐rank approximation. • Non-­‐negative tensor factorization
  71. 71. [PCOKECN5[UVGOUQP /WNVKNC[GT0GVYQTMU • Basic question: How do multilayer structures affect dynamical systems on networks? – Effects of multiplexity? (edge colorings) – Effects of interconnectedness? (node colorings) • Important goal: Find new phenomena that cannot occur without multilayer structures. – Example: Speeding up vs slowing down spreading? – Example: Multiplexity-­‐induced correlations in dynamics? – Example: Effect of different costs for changing layers?
  72. 72. %QPPGEVGF%QORQPGPVU CPF2GTEQNCVKQP • Connected component defined as in monoplex networks, except that multiple types of edges can occur in a path. • In multilayer networks, one again uses branching-­‐process approximations that allow the use of generating function technology. – Same fundamental idea (and limitations) as in monoplex networks, but the calculations are more intricate • More flavors of giant connected components (GCCs) that can be defined

  80. 80. %QWRNGFEGNN0GVYQTMU • Each node is associated with a dynamical system, and two nodes have the same color if they have the same state space and an identical dynamical system. • The couplings between dynamical systems are the edges (or hyperedges). Two edges have the same color if the couplings are equivalent • There exist many nice results for generic bifurcations in small coupled-­‐celled networks. – Spiritually similar results for generic phase transitions in random walks and Laplacians, but for very low-­‐dimensional systems instead of high-­‐ dimensional ones • Surgeon General’s warning: The papers on coupled-­‐ cell networks (many by Marty Golubitsky and company) are very mathematical.

  82. 82. %QPVTQNCPF[PCOKEU • It’s important to consider feedback loops. • Maybe one is only allowed to apply controls to a subset of the layers? • Layer decompositions: Start with a network and try to infer layers – Reminiscent of community detection, but with layers instead of dense modules – E.g. research by Prescott and Papachristodoulou on biochemical networks – Similar problem in social networks • “Control network” used to influence an “open-­‐loop network” (which doesn’t include feedback) • “Pinning control”, in which one controls a small fraction of nodes to try to influence the dynamics of other nodes, in the context of interconnected networks.
