My name is Nitesh Bhargava and I am a graduate student pursuing M. Tech. (Computer science and engineering) at IIT Madras, India.
Major Field of my Research is analysis of the complexity of algorithms, it involves a study of randomized “divide and conquer” algorithms that is used to solve recurring problems based on minimization and maximization and combinational analysis of running time of these algorithms.
“Extracting core member of Social Network communities”
) which I developed on Gephi last year, I implemented my algorithm under modularity class under statistics plugin, it finds a center node of every cluster within certain threshold specified (alpha and beta values), the detailed documentation and Gephi toolkit were a great help. It also generates the analysis report indicating the modularity of each cluster and core member of each community (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4HTqd4 ... sp=sharing
I’m fond of data analysis, and I often do some data grabbing/analysis during my free time. Along the way, Gephi has been by far the most insightful software I used for (exploratory) data analysis and visualization. As Gephi fits perfectly my fields of interest, I would be more than happy to work for this particular open source project.
The application field of Gephi is highly related to my research field, so it would represent a great contribution to both my research and the open source community.
I am very excited to join Gephi community.
