The randomness of the Modularity

Postby ticoalu » 21 Nov 2013 20:41

Other software and algorithm utilize random number "seed" generator acquire random number each time algorithma initialize in order to ensure (or rather simulate) randomness.

Does Gephi utilize random number generator when initializing the modularity algorithm? Since both Blondel community detection algorithm and the random walk time parameter (resolution) rely on greedy heuristic, I would like to know if Gephi will provide good randomness for each run when attempting to set up some kind of experiment.

Thanks in advance!
