Example Applications

Functionality of the Core SNAP Library

Brief description of SNAP functionality implemented in various files in the distribution package:

snap-core
alg.hSimple algorithms like counting node degrees, simple graph manipulation (adding/deleting self edges, deleting isolated nodes) and testing whether graph is a tree or a star.
anf.hApproximate Neighborhood Function: linear time algorithm to approximately calculate the diameter of massive graphs.
bfsdfs.hAlgorithms based on Breath First Search (BFS) and Depth First Search (DFS): shortest paths, spanning trees, graph diameter, and similar.
bignet.hMemory efficient implementation of a network with data on nodes. Use when working with very large networks.
centr.hNode centrality measures: closeness, betweenness, PageRank, ...
cmty.hAlgorithms for network community detection: Modularity, Girvan-Newman, Clauset-Newman-Moore.
cncom.hConnected components: weakly, strongly and biconnected components, articular nodes and bridge edges.
ff.hForest Fire model for generating networks that densify and have shrinking diameters.
flow.hMaximum flow algorithms.
gbase.hDefines flags that are used to identify functionality of graphs.
ggen.hVarious graph generators: random graphs, copying model, preferential attachment, RMAT, configuration model, Small world model.
ghash.hHash table with directed graphs (TNGraph) as keys. Uses efficient adaptive approximate graph isomorphism testing to scale to large graphs. Useful when one wants to count frequencies of various small subgraphs or cascades.
