Optimality of Graph Scanning Statistic for Online Community Detection

11 Feb 2021  ·  Liyan Xie, Yao Xie ·

Sequential change-point detection for graphs is a fundamental problem for streaming network data types and has wide applications in social networks and power systems. Given fixed vertices and a sequence of random graphs, the objective is to detect the change-point where the underlying distribution of the random graph changes... In particular, we focus on the local change that only affects a subgraph. We adopt the classical Erdos-Renyi model and revisit the generalized likelihood ratio (GLR) detection procedure. The scan statistic is computed by sequentially estimating the most-likely subgraph where the change happens. We provide theoretical analysis for the asymptotic optimality of the proposed procedure based on the GLR framework. We demonstrate the efficiency of our detection algorithm using simulations. read more
