CommunityGraphPlot

CommunityGraphPlot[g]

generates a plot showing the community structure of the graph g.

CommunityGraphPlot[g,{{vi1,vi2,},}]

generates a plot for the graph g with communities {vi1,vi2,}, .

CommunityGraphPlot[g,{,wj[{vi1,}],}]

generates a plot with highlighting features defined by the symbol wrappers wj.

CommunityGraphPlot[{vi1vj1,vi2vj2,},]

generates a plot for a graph in which vertex vik is connected to vertex vjk.

CommunityGraphPlot[m,]

generates a plot for a graph represented by the adjacency matrix m.

Details and Options

  • CommunityGraphPlot attempts to draw the vertices grouped into communities.
  • The following wrappers wi can be used for communities:
  • Annotation[a,label]provide an annotation
    Button[a,action]define an action to execute when the element is clicked
    EventHandler[a,]define a general event handler for the element
    Hyperlink[a,uri]make the element act as a hyperlink
    Labeled[a,]display the element with labeling
    PopupWindow[a,cont]attach a popup window to the element
